New details and photographs have emerged of conservative commentator Candace Owens’ wedding to British Oxford graduate George Farmer, revealing the bride wore three gowns and their guests donned red ‘Make Weddings Great Again’ hats at the reception.
The 30-year-old political activist, a well-known supporter of President Trump who was once praised for her views by Kanye West, met Farmer, 28, the son of a baron and conservative peer, in December 2018.
The pair, who met at the launch of a right-wing student group in the UK, got engaged over a FaceTime call after just two-and-a-half weeks of dating. They tied the knot at the end of August, over Labor Day weekend, at Trump Winery, near Charlottesville, in front of a host of equally conservative guests, including actor Jon Voight, radio host Larry Elder, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and Charlie Kirk, who founded right-wing Turning Point USA.
Owens met Farmer, who stood as a Brexit Party candidate in the EU elections in May, at the launch of Turning Point UK – the British version of the pro-Trump college campus organization. She first met Farage backstage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in 2017 and the pair went on to become close, with the former Ukip leader later appearing on her podcast.
In some images from their wedding day posted to social media, the couple – who live in a rented apartment in Mount Vernon, Washington – thanked Eric Trump for the ‘incredible venue and sunset in the captions, and revealed their simple white wedding cake was topped with a red Make Weddings Great Again’ hat, which guests also wore later in the evening.
Eric Trump is the president of the winery, and oversees the company’s winemaking, marketing and global distribution, according to the Trump Winery website. Pictures from their wedding show Owens in a traditional lace, floor length white gown with sleeves. Her hair was tied back in a loose half up, half down style she wore a long veil.
