Celebrity weddings are big subjects for gossip every year. Now that there has been a celebrity wedding so far this month, 2009 has officially kicked off. The celebrities in question were a famous singer, and a robot-fighting actor. Fergie, the lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas, and Josh Duhamel, co-star of Transformers and former lead of the TV show Las Vegas, were wed yesterday in Malibu.
Fergie and Josh Duhamel culminated their year long engagement with a wedding that was largely under wraps. The wedding date had been known for a while, but few other details had gotten out about it. In fact, the guests only found out where the wedding was yesterday.
Celebrity guests were reported to be Kate Hudson, Mario Lopez, Duhamel’s former Las Vegas co-star James Cann, will.i.am, Jerry O’Connell and more.
Fergie – a.k.a Stacy Ferguson – and Duhamel started the week of ceremonies with a hen and stag party for 75 of their friends. With Fergie and Duhamel’s busy schedules, the two rarely have time to spend together, so they went all out to do so this week.
Fergie and Duhamel began dating in 2004, and were engaged in 2007, but didn’t announce it to the public until last month. The two met when Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas were guests on an episode of Las Vegas in 2004. They have said that they were “practically married” since then, but made it official yesterday.
The wedding was held at the previously secret location of the Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu. Fergie was reported to have worn a white wedding gown and about a million dollars worth of diamonds. Fergie had 10 bridesmaids wearing 10 black gowns, with Duhamel and his groomsmen wearing black suits and white ties.
The 36-year-old Duhamel and 32-year-old Fergie were then married in a half-hour long exchange of vows, with an estimated 200 to 300 onlookers in attendance.
Fergie and Duhamel got engaged to start off what should be a big year for both of them. Duhamel reprises his part as a robot-fighting soldier in the sequel to Transformers this summer. Fergie is part of a super all-cast cast in a movie adaptation of the musical Nine, to come out in winter 2009. In fact Fergie had to work hard to lose the weight she gained for Nine in time for the wedding.
