Renowned British-Ghanaian architect weds model

NEWLY WEDS: David Adjaye walks down the aisle with wife Ashley Shaw-Scott

RENOWNED ARCHITECT David Adjaye married his model partner over the weekend.

The award-winning Ghanaian-British architect wed Ashley Shaw-Scott on Saturday (Jan 18) in a historic, star-studded ceremony at St Paul's Cathedral.

His new wife is a model-turned-business consultant.

The bride reportedly wore a custom couture beaded wedding gown and guests included singer Somi, who sang for the couple, a former UN secretary general, understood to be Kofi Annan, and other global stars.

Acclaimed artist Chris Ofilli was the groom's best man.

Adjaye, 47, who was born in Tanzania to a Ghanaian diplomat father, is one of the most respected architects of his generation.

He has designed for the likes of the late British designer Alexander McQueen, and is currently a visiting professor at Yale University.

He has also held visiting professor roles at other Ivy League universities including Harvard University and University of Pennsylvania.

In 2009, David was selected in a competition to design the $500m National Museum of African American History and Culture, in Washington DC, which is scheduled to open next year.
