Johnny Depp will reportedly tie the knot with his fiancée Amber Heard at a ceremony held next weekend on his private island in the Bahamas. According to the New York Post's Page Six, the Mortdecai star and Amber will marry in an intimate service in front of around 50 guests, including the actress' family and Johnny’s two children, Lily-Rose, 15, and 12-year-old Jack.
The wedding will take place at the actor's 45-acre Little Hall's Pond Cay island home, where accommodation is so limited that many of the invitees will apparently be staying on Johnny’s yacht during the celebrations.
Johnny, 51, and Amber, 28, first met while making the 2011 film The Rum Diary, and got engaged in December 2013 after a year of dating. They are said to have chosen their wedding date – the weekend of 7-8 February – because of their busy work schedules.
"She's filming a movie in London and he's getting ready to film the next Pirates of the Caribbean in Australia. So this is the only time that everyone could get together," a source revealed.
The insider also said that Amber has chosen a wedding dress designed by Stella McCartney for her big day.
ohnny bought his tropical paradise while shooting Pirates of the Caribbean in 2004, for $3.6million. The island, which is only accessible by seaplane or boat, has six beaches, which the actor chose to name after important people in his life – Paradis, after his then partner Vanessa Paradis, Lily Rose and Jack, after his children, Gonzo, after his friend Hunter S. Thompson, and Brando, after Marlon Brando, another mentor.
"I don't think I'd ever seen any place so pure and beautiful," Johnny told Vanity Fair in 2009 about the island. "You can feel your pulse rate drop about 20 beats. It's instant freedom".
