After the fabulous fanfare of Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’s seemingly endless nuptials in India, it’s undeniable: the world can’t resist a celebrity wedding. Next to walk down the aisle are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin, or rather Hailey Bieber, as the two young lovers are thought to have wed in a private civil ceremony in New York in the autumn of 2018. Rumours of a larger celebration are afloat, with some outlets even whispering that save-the-date cards were sent and then retracted again. Herewith, is everything we know about the Bieber and Bieber marriage so far.
When is Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s wedding date?
The couple were photographed entering a marriage license courthouse in New York on September 13, but it was not until November 15 that Bieber confirmed his relationship status on social media. The popstar published an Instagram photograph of the duo walking hand-in-hand with the simple caption: “My wife is awesome.” Baldwin promptly changed her social domain to @haileybieber and the Beliebers went wild. “It took some getting used to, for sure,” Baldwin told Bustle of changing her name. “It’s definitely strange, it takes adjusting.”
reparations for a religious ceremony and small, familial party began for 2019. The newlyweds sent out save-the-date cards for February 28, according to Page Six. The couple, however, declined to comment. On January 23, a fresh set of rumours emerged that the wedding had been postponed again.
According to TMZ, the decision to move the date was not because the wedding day had become public. Some of Bieber’s family could not make the February 28 date, and thus a new day had to be planned to give guests, including Kylie Jenner, Travis Scott and Drake, plenty of notice.
On March 18, Baldwin took to Instagram Stories to silence the multiple media sources reporting that Bieber’s depression was putting a strain on their marriage. “Don’t believe what ya read on the internet folks,” she said with a laughing emoji and a rolling eye emoji. She added a “fake news” gif to reiterate her point.
On March 25, Bieber told his followers that he was taking a break from music to focus on his family and health. “I am now very focused on repairing some of the deep rooted issues that I have as most of us have, so that I don’t fall apart, so that I can sustain my marriage and be the father I want to be,” he wrote via Instagram.
Bieber subsequently sparked controversy on April Fools’ Day, when an Instagram post insinuating that his wife was pregnant divided his fans. He later issued an apology, declaring himself a “prankster”. “There’s always gonna be people offended, there’s also people who don’t take jokes very well.” Was it too late for him to say sorry? His 107 million followers are waiting on tenterhooks to see how his views on parenthood unfold.
On April 8, Bieber affirmed his love for his wife via an Instagram poem, which concluded: “Things all around us just get better with time. I fall more in love with you every day! You have walked hand and hand with me as I continue to get my emotions, mind, body and soul in tact! You have given me so much strength, support, encouragement and joy. I just wanted to publicly honour you, and remind you that the best is yet to come!”
Where will Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin’s wedding be held?
The newly crowned Mrs Bieber told The Cut in an article published on September 13 that she had a brilliant wedding planner scouting out the perfect location – “I think having it in the woods would be so beautiful” – on the West Coast.
But, when rumours emerged on January 23 that the date had been postponed, TMZ also suggested that the idea of an LA wedding might be abandoned in favour of a destination wedding with a smaller guest list.
It is thought that Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz could be in line to officiate the ceremony. Hillsong is Bieber’s church of choice in New York, and the pair are often pictured enjoying each other’s company outside the place of worship. The church also bears significance to the couple, whose relationship took a romantic turn after they continued to crossed paths at services there.
Who will design Hailey Baldwin’s wedding dress?
Hailey had already chosen the designer of her dress in September, according to The Cut – however, the gown itself was still in the inception phase then. With a signature style that errs on the sporty side and an affiliation with brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas and Pretty Little Thing, the odds on which brand she has commissioned are wide open. Recent red-carpet appearances have seen the model look to Versace, Roberto Cavalli and Ralph Lauren for glitzy, form-fitting options, so the clues point towards something akin to embellished eveningwear that will show off her physique.
Will Bieber wear a design from his own label Drew? Its predominantly beige palette and smiley face motifs might decree it unsuitable for a wedding ceremony, but the singer is not one to be shackled by sartorial codes dictated by society. On March 5, the internet swooned over a couple’s style moment when Bieber borrowed his wife’s Balenciaga coat to offset his streetwear look.
How did Justin Bieber propose?
Bieber proposed to his girlfriend during a trip to the Bahamas in the summer of 2018. He confirmed the news with a lengthy Instagram post, the core of which read: “You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn’t want to spend it with anybody else.”
The couple met in 2009, when Baldwin was given tickets to a Today Showthat Bieber was performing on. “I was never a superfan, of him,” she told Vogue of not being a Belieber. “It was never that crazed, screaming thing. I didn’t think about it in any kind of way except for the fact that he was cute. Everybody had a crush on him. But for the first few years we had a weird age gap.” A friendship developed – “I was running around with him as his homie” – when Baldwin started attending church services at Hillsong.
The duo then dated briefly three years ago, but “negative things happened that we still need to talk about and work through,” Baldwin continued. “Fizzled would not be the right word – it was more like a very dramatic excommunication.” In June 2018, they bumped into each other at a conference in Miami, and a month later they were engaged.
