Elba and new wife, Sabrina Dhowre (now Sabrina Elba) have stated that appearing on the British Vogue cover as the ‘First African Couple’ made them proud.
Edward Enniful, British Vogue editor-in-chief, attended their wedding in April and interviewed Elba who talked about how much he loved Dhowre. He said that since their first meeting, they had not been apart.
Elba who had been married two times, mentions that he had no desire of getting married again; however, his resolve changed when he met Dhowre in 2017 in Vancouver as he filmed ‘The Mountain Between Us’ with Kate Winslet. Elba says that they fell in love immediately and he proposed last year in February during his screening for the movie ‘Yardie’.
“This year I will be 47, been married, and even before Sabrina and I met, I lived life to the full. I had no plans to marry again…but….”
Elba and Dhowre both posted photographs on their Instagram pages from their wedding photo shoot. Each emphasized their pictures that made history. Dhowere comments that it ‘feels surreal.’
