The couple are taking control of how much they choose to share about their Paris ceremony, so why do guests keep ignoring their right to privacy? 

Earlier this year, Game of Thrones actor Sophie Turner and singer Joe Jonas married each other in an impromptu Las Vegas ceremony.

The couple did not announce the wedding and haven’t publicly shared any photos or videos from the day, which suggests that they very much wanted to keep it a private event. However, one of their guests – musician Diplo - decided to pretty much live stream the whole thing on his Instagram.

“We didn’t choose him to be our wedding photographer,” Turner told Graham Norton on his show weeks afterwards. “He just kind of decided to live-stream it.” Jonas also aired his annoyance over the leaked footage during an interview on Capital Radio, saying Diplo “ruined” things and adding: “I love Diplo, but he loves his ‘gram more than a 13-year-old. He posts every five seconds. He literally, like, live-streamed with dog face filters.”

Fast-forward a month and Jonas and Turner are now in Paris, where they are having a second ceremony with their families and friends. Turner previously revealed vague plans for the wedding during her chat with Norton but refused to give any further details other than “it’s happening”. Again, this suggests that the pair would like to keep things under wraps. But, once more, another celebrity friend has decided to publically reveal more details about the ceremony.

Over the weekend, both stars shared a photo of themselves posing in front of the Eifel Tower. American television personality Dr Phil, who recently interviewed Turner, wrote in the photo comments: “Easy now! 1 week to go! Ha! See you at the wedding!” This means that, after some very simple maths, the world now knows exactly when the ceremony is taking place.

But by posting the photo in the first place, it suggests that Turner and Jonas want to take control over how much they share with fans, following what happened with Diplo in Vegas.

Speaking about speculation over their relationship last year, Turner told The Sunday Times: “I’m in a relationship, but it’s a very private relationship.” She also told Marie Claire that it can “feel like you’re living in a fishbowl”. 

“I find it really rude, and I will be rude back,” she continued, referring to fans who try to secretly take photos of her. “It’s such an invasion of privacy. I could be out with my mum on her birthday and I will ask them to delete it. I would much rather them come up and ask for a photo. I will probably be fine with it… unless I look s**t.”

This is why her wedding guests – celebrities or not – should show respect and let them have the privacy that they have a right to.
