PHOTOS: Serena Williams Weds Ohanian in £2.6m Princess Dress

Wimbledon champion Serena Williams has married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a lavish ceremony just 11 weeks after giving birth.

The couple met at a hotel in Rome – and while he had booked a room to attend a conference, she was staying there to play in the Italian Open.

As he was not a tennis fan, it took Mr Ohanian a little while to realise exactly who he was having breakfast next to, but the pair hit it off quickly.


He proposed 18 months later in the same hotel, at the same table where they had met.

They now have a daughter called Alexis Jr, whose own Instagram has more than 105,000 followers.

The Ohanians had around 200 people at their ceremony in New Orleans, including Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Caroline Wozniacki, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

They married on 16 November, the birthday of Mr. Ohanian’s late mother, as a tribute to her.

Serena had three dresses for the occasion – the first being a £2.6m Alexander McQueen princess dress, with a beaded and feathered Versace dress for the reception.
