Musician Joe Jonas and Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner wanted to be married in a secret Las Vegas ceremony when they tied the knot last month. But yesterday it was revealed that they might have been wise to review their guest list before the wedding. Jonas dished to a London radio program that the DJ Diplo, an invited guest, had live-streamed the entire event on Instagram.
“I love Diplo, but he loves his ‘gram more than a 13-year-old,” Jonas said. “He posts every five seconds. He literally, like, live-streamed with dog face filters.”
Diplo streamed the couple’s entire vow ceremony, which was presided over by an Elvis impersonator. He also showed them as they entered the chapel. Jonas joked that Diplo “ruined” the big day.
Last week, Turner appeared on the Graham Norton show and discussed the event. “Well, we didn’t choose him to be our wedding photographer,” she said. “He just kind of decided to live-streamed it. [What happens in Vegas] doesn’t stay in Vegas.”
Luckily, Jonas and Turner got over the gaffe and are able to laugh about it. “We just laughed. We loved it,” Jonas insisted. “We thought it was ridiculous, and I just love that he was walking into the chapel and he was like, ‘going to hit this wedding real quick,’ [in his Instagram Story].”
The newlyweds initially met on social media, so maybe Diplo’s Instagram coverage of their nuptials was completely appropriate after all. As Turner related to Harper’s Bazaar UK, “[Joe and I] had a lot of mutual friends and they’d been trying to introduce us for a long time. We were following each other on Instagram and he direct-messaged me one fine day, out of the blue.”
They’ll have a more formal ceremony at a later date. We wonder if Diplo will make an appearance!
