In pictures obtained by the website, Vanessa – who was previously in a long-term relationship with Johnny Depp – can be seen in said to have leaving the building arm-in-arm with film director Samuel while guests shower them with confetti.

Amongst the guests seen in the photos is Vanessa’s eldest child with Johnny, Lily-Rose Depp, 19 – the couple have a 16-year-old son, John Christopher Depp III.

Vanessa and Samuel were reported to have got engaged back in March, but never confirmed the reports.

:frenchie: Have to admit my first thought was "Bummer," but I hope everyone will be very happy! :bouquet: They all look lovely and it happened at least 2 weeks earlier than rumored. Could be way off base, but I've suspected Johnny has had a special someone for a while. But I am sure this marriage is emotional for him.

I love Vanessa! I confess I always hoped she and Johnny would reunite, sadly not to be, but I am very happy for her and I do wish them both all the best for the future. Her new husband is very dishy! Vanessa’s dress is beautiful and she looks so happy, am glad for her that she is moving on with her life. :congrats:

Honestly, I think this is a little sudden but I wish her the best. :rosegirl: I am very impressed they were able to pull this off with all those people and nobody else finding out about the wedding.

They have dated for a couple of years. There had been rumors for at least 6 months that they were getting married in July. The tabloids said July 19, maybe they hinted at the wrong date so they could pull it off.

Congratulations to Vanessa and Samuel. I think Vanessa is very classy. She never had a bad word to say about him when they split up. When a AH trashed Johnny, Vanessa was the first one to publicly defend him.

I also kind of hoped that someday they would get back together. When they were together Johnny would always say that she could calm him down and bring him out of his bad place. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was on tv last night. When I was watching it I thought about how Johnny seemed to be in such a good place in his life back then. The children were small and he and Vanessa seemed so much in love.

Actually they started dating in 2016 which kind of surprised me they would be marrying so quickly but I guess they had their reasons and I wish Vanessa all the best. :cheers:
