In a secret ceremony in Costa Rica… joined by Beyoncé and Solange following their Met Gala controversy
Following the arrival of Beyonce and Solange fresh from their Met Gala controversy, they were no doubt hoping the wedding would go off without a hitch.
Thankfully, it seemed that Kelly Rowland and Tim Witherspoon managed to enjoy their nuptials drama-free, as they married in a secret ceremony in Costa Rica on Friday.
Kelly was dressed in a beautiful traditional white gown for her big day, which also saw Tina Knowles and Michelle Williams attend.

A report in UsWeekly claimed that the event was ‘a quick, simple ceremony – only around 30 people’.
And judging by the pictures it seemed Kelly and her beau felt like it was just the two of them, as they romantically kissed on a deck overlooking the sea.
Tim – a retired American boxer – matched his bride wearing a tailored white suit for the occasion, while Kelly went for a traditional dress with a long flowing veil.

Hopefully Beyonce and her sister Solange would have had time to sort out any difference before the ceremony was under way.
Beyonce first dropped clues about the wedding, when she posted a picture on her Instagram account, showing what appeared to be a bridesmaids outfit.
Speaking last December, 33-year-old Kelly admitted she and Tim had been engaged for some time.

She said: ‘He put a ring on it. It’s been a while. We’ve kept it very, very low – for years, to be completely honest.’
Kelly also revealed her boyfriend of four years proposed on Skype while she was in Bulgaria.
She said: ‘He put a ring on it! He asked me first on Skype and I was like, ‘We’re so far away from each other.’ But it was so late, I remember we were both just kinda like, honestly, just staring at each other.’
