For three years they have been separated by the walls in the high-security Belmarsh prison in London: Julian Assange (50) and Stella Moris (39) have now said yes to each other. The lawyer and the Wikileads founder found each other during his years of asylum in the Ecuadorian representation in London and have two sons together.
In addition to the family of four, only a few relatives such as Mori’s mother and sister and Assange’s father and brother were allowed to attend the ceremony behind bars. The bride appeared in an elegant light gray dress by designer Vivienne Westwood (80), who designed a Scottish kilt for the groom. The sons Gabriel (4) and Max (3) also wore kilts.

Outside the prison, the wedding party celebrated with a fiery speech from the bride and cake. “This injustice should end soon,” Moris said. The guests were motivated to donate to the next legal steps. Because the celebrations were overshadowed by the rejection of the Supreme Court’s appeal against extradition to the United States.
