Shanina Shaik has given fans a glimpse into her gorgeous wedding held in The Bahamas.
The Australian model wed DJ Ruckus, real name Gregory Andrews, at a ceremony held at a resort on the Eleuthera island on Saturday (28Apr18), the same location where they got engaged in 2016.
After initially releasing just one photo from her wedding on social media, Shanina has now shared details and images from her big day with Brides.com and shared that it felt natural to return to the luxury locale for the nuptials.
“I’ve always dreamt of marrying on the beach,” she said. “Our wedding reflected our personal style (simple and elegant) with the added touch of a bohemian vibe as well.”
Shanina’s bridesmaids included Nicole Williams, Nadine Leopold, Natalie Halcro, Jasmine Tookes and Olivia Pierson, with the ladies all wearing gowns in neutral colours from Australian label Zimmermann, while guests at the wedding included Ashlee Simpson and her husband Evan Ross, as well as Run-DMC star Reverend Run, who officiated the service.
For the main ceremony, Shanina turned to Ralph & Russo’s Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo, who made her an off-the-shoulder lace gown with sheer hem over the course of eight months.
“I wanted it to be simple, bohemian, and elegant,” the 27-year-old explained. “I love a boho style and I wanted to give it a little twist by incorporating lace.”
Ruckus sported a Tom Ford tuxedo for the bash, while Shanina chose to change into another gown for the reception – another white dress by designer Michael Costello. The former Victoria’s Secret star also sported jewellery from Lorraine Schwartz, which complemented her engagement ring and new wedding band, while she wore two pairs of new high heels that she selected on a recent shopping trip.
“After looking at so many amazing options, I decided to go with a stunning pair of Aquazzura shoes,” she smiled, adding that her second choice was a pair of embellished Jimmy Choo stilettos.
