Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup’s second wedding to mark their first year of marriage

The couple have been together since 2017 and tied the knot last year.

In Hollywood, where relationships often face scrutiny under the unforgiving spotlight, few love stories captivate as much as the one of Naomi Watts and her husband Billy Crudup.

Both esteemed actors in their own right, Naomi and Billy have managed to keep their personal connection remarkably private.

However, every now and then, the couple give fans small glimpses into their relationship.

On June 10, 2024, one year after their first wedding, the actresses brother Ben Watts posted a trio of videos to his Instagram page of Naomi and Billy’s vowel renewal ceremony with close family and friends in Mexico City.

Ben, a photographer and director, initially shared a video of what seemed to be the couple’s rehearsal dinner. “I’m making a video … but tomorrow I’m taking pictures. Family x friends and lotsa fun, @naomiwatts x Billy in Mexico City,” he wrote in the caption.

The video featured moments with the happy couple, and their guests, including actor Justin Theroux. It also showed a touching speech by Watts during the wedding.

“This is a reminder of what life’s about, the affirmation of love being one of the simplest things but of most importance,” she shared.

In the second video captioned “Off they go Naomi x Billy x family”, it shows the couple and their family crowded into an elevator making their way to the ceremony. Naomi was in a beautiful white dress and Billy in a suave tuxedo.

The final video shared by Ben is of the ceremony with the couple and their bridal party making their way down the aisle, before the ceremony gets underway. You can see the actor’s children, the beautiful church setting and the couple sharing a kiss.
