Wedding bells could sound for Amber Heard and Johnny Depp if the rumor mill is to be believed. The celebrity couple will have their wedding this weekend on his private island, E! News reported Tuesday. Neither Heard nor Depp have confirmed the gossip, but sources said the duo is excited to wed after a yearlong engagement.
"He's completely in love and can't wait," a source told E! News. "Amber and Johnny are really happy," a different insider told the news site in January. "And their relationship is in a really good place." The two met on the set of 2011's “The Rum Diary,” dated for two years and became engaged January 2014.
Depp, 51, and Heard, 28, will say their I do's during an intimate ceremony on Little Hall’s Pond Cay in the Bahamas, the New York Post’s Page Six reported. There will be about 50 guests at the nuptials. Of course, Depp's children, Lily-Rose, 15, and Jack, 12, will be in attendance. There’s no word on what role the kids may play in the wedding.
Depps’ ex Vanessa Paradis also will reportedly be there. Even though the two were together for 14 years, they never married. This will be the first marriage for Heard and the second for Deep, who was married to Lori Anne Wilson from 1983 to 1986.
As noted by People magazine, he might want to rethink one of the names on his 45-acre private island -- which he bought in 2004 for $3.6 million -- since it's named after his children's mother. Maybe Paradis Beach will become Amber Beach? The other beaches are named for his children, Gonzo Beach is named for writer Hunter S. Thompson and Brando Beach is named for Marlon Brando, his mentor.
So why did the “Mortdecai” star and his fiancée pick the weekend of Feb. 7? The working couple had to find a date that fit with their busy acting schedules. “She’s filming a movie in London, and he’s getting ready to film the next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ in Australia,” a source told Page Six. “So this is the only time that everyone could get together.”
