Bar Refaeli ‘marries’
Supermodel Bar Refaeli is reportedly a married woman after tying the knot with businessman Adi Ezra in a traditional Jewish ceremony.
The nuptials are said to have taken place in the couple’s native country of Israel at the Carmel Forest Spa Resort near Haifa on Thursday 24 September (15).
E! News reports they exchanged vows in front of 300 loved ones with famous religious leader, Rabbi Yitzchak Dovid Grossman, officiating the wedding.
"The ceremony was so magical, filled with close friends and family and a few notable names and models," a source told the outlet. "The locations was stunning. Bar couldn't be happier!"
It’s claimed the 30-year-old model wore a Chloé wedding gown. As she walked down the aisle to unite with her groom at the chuppah, famous singer Shlomi Shabbat sang The Beginning of the World, according to reports by Mako and Walla!
After Adi cemented their union by stepping on a glass, 2011 song Marry You by Bruno Mars is said to have played in the background.
The celebrations didn’t end there, as the supermodel slipped into another Chloé dress to party with friends and relatives in a giant tent decorated with purple spotlights.
Bar’s wedding was not without controversy, as leading up to the ceremony authorities were battling on whether aviation traffic flying above the event would be shut down. After contentious debate, high level politicians agreed to allow only authorised aircraft to fly over Bar’s wedding.
Bar became engaged to Adi in March (15) after dating for about one year.
In July (15) she gushed about their exciting family future together.
"I have always wanted children. I am very easy with babies and not scared of them at all," she smiled to the UK’s Hello! magazine.
Bar’s marriage with Adi is her second, as the stunning blond was previously wed to Arik Weinstein, but they divorced in 2005 after being married for two years. Bar was previously in a relationship with actor Leonardo DiCaprio for four years until they ended the romance in 2009.
