After the ceremony, the couple – who started dating in 2017 – made a quick trip to the estate for some private wedding photos, while guests moved to a specially-built ‘botanical garden’ where the cocktail hour was held.
Jennifer and Bill danced to Elton John’s Can You Feel the Love Tonight, while her first dance with her new husband was to Yellow Lights, a song ‘written and performed by their friend and artist Harry Hudson.’

Jennifer, who attends medical school, said putting it together was ‘no small feat’.
“When I was on medical school rotation and Niall was preparing for the Olympics, planning the wedding was no small task,” she says. Nassar competed for Egypt at this year’s Olympics.
Jennifer also told Vogue that she will have all the guests at their wedding get 300 vaccinations and get tested for Covid, she said, to ensure everyone’s safety.
‘We have decided that all guests must be fully vaccinated and have negative test results before the wedding. We have also provided masks. We feel incredibly lucky to be safely reunited with our loved ones. We know others are not as fortunate, especially as the pandemic continues to devastate communities in the United States and around the world,’ he said.
‘An advice was given to us [throughout the planning process] Remember that this day belongs to us and our love,’ he continued.
The exes also seem to be co-parenting well, as they reunited to walk daughter Jennifer down the aisle at her wedding to Niall Nassar in October 2021 (pictured).
‘I think we really kept that at the center of our minds when planning and we tried to make sure our family and friends were able to enjoy themselves.’
After Bill and Melinda’s divorce, the pair reportedly split their combined $130 billion net worth, but exactly how they split their vast wealth and vast fortune has not been revealed.
The couple owns homes in five different states, a fleet of cars including a rare $2 million Porsche, an art collection that includes a $30 million book of Leonardo da Vinci’s writings and sketches, and a series of private jets.
The Gates had a string of luxury mansions across the United States — including in Florida, California and Wyoming — but their main family home was in Washington, near the Gates Foundation headquarters.

Now, the computer scientist has opened up about her decision to leave her husband of nearly three decades, saying fate magazine in a new interview that COVID-19 The pandemic helped give him ‘the secret to doing what he needed to do’.
‘I had reasons why I couldn’t stay in that marriage anymore,’ she explained. ‘But the strange thing about Covid is that it gave me the privacy to do what I had to do.
‘It was incredibly painful, in countless ways, but I had the secret to get through it.’
During the interview, Melinda also slammed Bill for his dubious friendship with pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and revealed that he continued seeing him despite having ‘nightmares’ about him.
‘I didn’t like that he had a meeting with Jeffrey Epstein. I made it clear to him,’ she said, adding that she met Epstein once because she ‘wanted to see who he was.’
‘I regretted it from the second I stepped in the door,’ he continued. ‘He had a disgusting, evil personality. I had nightmares about it later.
‘Any questions that remained about what Bill’s relationship with him were… were for Bill to answer. I made it very clear how I felt about him.’
In a statement to CBS, Bill called his meeting with Epstein a ‘huge’ mistake. He said: Meeting Epstein was a mistake that I deeply regret. It was a significant error of judgment.’
Asked about his previous infidelity in May, the business mogul told TODAY, ‘I definitely made a mistake and I take responsibility.
‘I don’t think it’s constructive to get into the details at this point, but yes, I’ve caused pain and I feel terrible about it. I am responsible for causing a lot of trouble to my family.’
He added of their split: ‘A breakup is definitely a sad thing. It was a tough year. I feel good that we are all moving forward now.
‘Melinda and I continue to work together. It was sad and sad, but now we’re moving forward together.’
They also founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation together in 2000, and even after going their separate ways, the former couple continued to run the foundation together — which Melinda said helped her get through it.
‘I continue to work with the person I was walking away from, and I have to show up and be my best every day,’ he continued.
‘So even though I might cry at 9am and then be on a video conference at 10am with the person I’m leaving, I have to show up and be my best.’
She added that her ‘main concern’ has always been ‘the safety of her children’ and that she is grateful that she and Bill have now ‘got on the other side.’
