Matthew Mcconaughey 's wedding went ahead, as expected, on Saturday (June 9, 2012), with the Hollywood star marrying his long-term partner, Camila Alves at their home in Texas on Saturday. People magazine reports that Camila will be taking Matthew's surname as her own, following the nuptials. Camila and Matthew, who have two children, Levi, 4 and Vida, 2, have been engaged since Christmas Day but kept the event a secret - even from some of the guests, until the very last minute.
Once the ceremony was over, the wedding guests remained, with many staying in dozens of luxury tents that they had pitched in the grounds of MCConaughey's vast property. The day apparently began in a relaxed manner, with the couple hanging out in casual clothes, before they exchanged their threads for something a little more formal, so that the ceremony could commence. MCConaughey donned a three-piece Dolce and Gabbana suit, whilst his wife opted for Stuart Weitzman heels and a wedding gown made for her by her favourite Brazilian designer. One of the guests at the wedding told People "Matthew looked so handsome, like an Old Hollywood movie star," says a guest. "And Camila was just glowing and beautiful!"
The entire celebration lasted for three days, with guests hanging out, playing lawn games and lounging in hammocks. Matthew, 42 and Camila, 29, have been together since 2007.
