Inside Britney Spears’ wedding reception: Singer parties with new husband Sam Asghari

Britney Spears swapped her Versace bridal gown for just a blazer as she let loose at their wedding reception on Thursday evening after tying the knot at her Los Angeles home earlier in the day. 

The singer, 40, became a newlywed for the third time during an intimate fairytale wedding that was attended by a select group of friends and family – including A-listers like Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Selena Gomez, and Paris Hilton. 

The day got off to a rocky start when Britney’s first husband Jason Alexander was caught trespassing and attempted to crash the wedding, yet Britney and Sam didn’t let the drama cloud their special day. 

After the ceremony, the new Mrs Asghari joined Sam, 28, on the dancefloor inside a stunning marquee that had been erected in the grounds of her $7 million Thousand Oaks mansion. 

The couple didn’t have a first dance, but Britney’s hit song Toxic played out for the guests while she teamed up with Paris to sing the socialite’s hit song Stars Are Blind. 

Loving life: Sam tried on her wedding veil

Britney put her toned legs on display as she donned a Versace blazer with a glittering Versace lining on the seam and gold buttons, opting not to don trousers and flashing her bottom as she threw some shapes on the dancefloor. 

The mother-of-two also highlighted her fancy footwork as she kicked off her heels in order to throw some shapes on the dancefloor. 

Earlier in the night Britney also donned a plunging scarlet dress which had tasseled sleeves and a very plunging neckline for the kiss before beaming in another snap as the two ladies turned back to the camera.

Britney completed her wedding look with silver heels and wore her hair in a half up half down style while opting for a glamorous makeup look. 

Sam also opted for a change of outfit for their  wedding reception, swapping his classic black tuxedo for a smart navy trouser suit and a T-shirt emblazoned with Britney and Sam.

Britney was clearly in the mood to spread the love around throughout the evening, during which she was seen embracing Drew Barrymore and Selena Gomez, with all three happily smiling as the cameras snapped the touching moment. 

Wine glasses, cigarette packets, and lighters were seen littering the glass tables inside the reception, where guests danced the night away with pink disco lights filling the space as they partied in celebration of Britney and Sam’s union. 

The bride was without a doubt the star of the dance floor however; she was seen showing off her moves alongside a pal, while sporting a very short black Versace tuxedo jacket, under which she appeared to be wearing pink bikini bottoms – with the strings seen hanging down from the waist-length design.   

Selena was the ultimate hype girl during the event, where she was pictured cheering Britney and Sam on as they hugged on the dance floor in front of their guests – including actor Ansel Elgort, who was a somewhat surprising addition to the guest list for the evening.

According to Vogue, the entire wedding was planned by celebrity event producer Jeffrey Best, who said that the couple wanted to share a ‘small and beautiful moment with their family and friends’. 

‘We wanted warm and feminine colors including blush, white, cream, and gold, and a lot of various shades of pinks, blush, and reds,’ Best explained. 

During the wild wedding reception, Britney and guest Madonna, 63, recreated that iconic steamy kiss from the 2003 VMAs.

The queens of pop made headlines 20 years ago when they kissed at the VMAs while performing Madonna’s song Hollywood with Christina Aguilera on stage, astounding audiences worldwide.

Madonna looked incredible in a sweeping multi-colored dress a green, yellow and pink pattern on it and showed off her smooth complexion for the incredible images. 

In January Madonna hinted that she wanted to recreate the infamous on-stage kiss during a candid Instagram Live stream.

When asked if she would ever do a world tour again during the live interview to promote her music, Madonna said: ‘Hell yeah! Got to stay young baby. Me and Britney, what about that? Yeah, I’m not sure she’d be into it, but it’d be really cool. We could like re-enact the, the original. Kiss. The kiss, yeah.’

During 2003’s MTV VMAs, Madonna had a prolonged kiss with Britney during their opening performance for the ceremony.

Britney opened the show by singing Madonna’s Like a Virgin, emerging out of a wedding cake while dressed as a bride, as Madonna did in her 1987 VMAs performance.

Soon after that, Christina joined Britney onstage for the song before Madonna appeared and launched into her single Hollywood. During the performance, Madonna leaned over and kissed Britney.

In 2018 Christina – who was on stage for the kiss – recalled feeling left out of the moment saying her kiss with Madonna just moments later was not shown. 

During her wedding reception, Britney also danced around with Madonna before running around to chat with pals Drew Barrymore and Selena Gomez.  

The highly-anticipated wedding took place at her mansion – with newly-released images capturing the blushing bride and her groom grinning from ear-to-ear as they prepared to make their way to the flower-covered altar.

Baby One More Time singer Britney was the picture of bridal bliss as she posed with her new husband, looking radiant in a custom-made white Versace wedding gown, which featured an off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline, long train, and an elegant veil that swept along the floor behind her as she exchanged vows . 

The singer – whose wedding was not attended by estranged her family members, father Jamie Spears, mother Lynne Spears, and sister Jamie Lynn Spears – added some fashionable flair to her gown by donning a white choker necklace and sheer white gloves. 

Bling thing: Britney appears to have chosen two wedding bands - one, a circle of round diamonds, while the other featured a ring of marquise stones - while Sam opted for a simple brushed metal design

Pictures also capture the stunning jewelry that she sported for the occasion, including a dazzling diamond necklace, two pairs of diamond earrings and, of course, her diamond wedding bands.

One of Britney’s two rings features a simple band of round stones, while the other is a circle of marquise diamonds, both of which were set in a silver metal – likely platinum. Sam’s band meanwhile has a two-tone metal design, with a circle of brushed metal running along the middle, with a shiny metallic band on either side. 

As well as the wedding rings, Britney had a stunning collection of diamond jewelry to choose from for her wedding celebrations – with Vogue reporting that the array of jewels, designed by A-list jeweler Stephanie Gottlieb, totaled a whopping 62 carats and included a pair of round diamond and pear-shaped drop earrings, a heart-shaped diamond tennis necklace, and an oval diamond tennis bracelet. 

The couple’s wedding rings were also created by Gottlieb, who said of the designs: ‘We knew that Britney’s dress had a classic silhouette with an open neckline, so we designed timeless pieces that would complement the style.’

A fairytale! Outside the singer's home, a Cinderella-style horse-drawn carriage was seen awaiting the bride and groom

Britney opted to wear very simple, natural makeup for her wedding day – eschewing the dark black eyeliner that she is so often seen sporting, in favor of a much more low-key look that was created by celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and her niece Sofia, who was on-hand to style the bride on her big day. 

Images taken inside the ceremony showed the happy couple standing in front of a stunning flower wall that was covered in pink-and-white blooms – which also featured in the multiple floral arrangements that were placed in between the wooden pews where their guests were seated during the ceremony. 

The pair held hands as they exchanged their vows, with Sam seen with a wide grin on his face as he faced his wife during the ceremony, which took place in a beautiful pink tent that was set up on the grounds of Britney’s California mansion and had multiple chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

Pink seems to have been the theme of the day, with the couple also pictured celebrating their union by exchanging a kiss on a balcony at the property, which had also been covered in pink blooms in varying shades.  

The couple, who announced their engagement in September last year, were officially pronounced husband and wife in front of a small, select group of guests, which included several of their celebrity pals: Selena Gomez, Madonna, Drew Barrymore, Paris Hilton, and Ansel Elgort were all invited to attend, however Britney’s estranged family members, and the two sons she shares with ex-husband Kevin Federline, were not present. 

But if the absence of her family caused any distress for the bride, she certainly didn’t let it show on the day, with images capturing Britney grinning from ear-to-ear as she posed for newlywed portraits with her husband, who looked incredibly dapper in a black tuxedo, complete with white bouttoniere. 

Inside Britney Spears’ wedding venue: Hundreds of roses and chandeliers fill a marquee as singer marries Sam Asghari at her $7.4million LA mansion

Britney Spears splashed out on a lavish marquee filled with hundreds of pink roses and several chandeliers as she wed long-term partner Sam Asghari in the grounds of her $7.4million California mansion on Thursday.

The singer, 40, purchased the incredible mansion set in 20.98 acres of land in Thousand Oaks back in 2015, with her home boasting five bedrooms and seven bathrooms as well as its own tennis court, infinity pool and three-hole golf course.

While she may have wanted to tie the knot in familiar surroundings, Spears was later forced to flee her home with her fiancé after her first husband Jason Alexander was caught trespassing in a bid to crash the wedding.

Alexander scaled the fence of her property and went on an Instagram livestream as he ran around the property, showing off the wedding tent that had been erected for the couple’s nuptials.

He is now in the custody of the Ventura Sheriff’s Department having been charged with trespassing, vandalism and two batteries after a couple of altercations with the singer’s security guards.

The 40-year-old was easily able to scale a fence, descend a rocky hillside and slip inside the wedding venue, all-the-while telling security exactly who he was, and why he was there – just hours before the fairytale ceremony got underway.

Alexander’s arrest is the third arrest in 13 months. Police sources revealed he also has a felony warrant for larceny in another county.

He was last in police custody for driving under the influence in January 2021 and breaking security protocols at an airport in August. Alexander was also arrested previously for violating an order of protection and stalking an unidentified woman in December 2021.

On Thursday night, Spears’ attorney revealed he was ‘absolutely livid’ after Alexander crashed the pop star’s wedding venue and demanded he be locked up.

Mathew Rosengart, a former federal prosecutor with a reputation that has seen him represent a host of high-profile clients since he went into private practice in 2001, said he is ‘personally working with the sheriff’s department to ensure Mr. Alexander is aggressively prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.’

‘Jason Alexander has been handcuffed, taken into custody and arrested. I express my thanks to the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department for their prompt response and good work,’ Rosengart, told TMZ in a statement.

Rosengart’s vow to see Alexander prosecuted capped off an afternoon of drama within the grounds of Spears’ Thousand Oaks, California mansion hours before she was due to marry.

A photographer captured the moment Alexander was apprehended by security and pinned to the ground.

Alexander claimed that Spears had ‘invited him’ to the event and that she was his ‘first and only wife’ before he proudly stated he was there to ‘crash the wedding’.

At one point, he managed to make it inside the wedding tent which was decorated in pink roses, before he was once again confronted by armed security.

He was swiftly tackled to the ground and escorted off the premises with the Ventura County Sheriff having been summoned. Overhead photos show at least six patrol cars in attendance as Alexander’s antics demonstrated a stunning breach in security surrounding the star.

Rosengart told TMZ he’s ‘absolutely livid’ Alexander tried to crash and wants Alexander locked up.

In a 10 minute long Instagram live video, Alexander could be seen scaling a fence on the perimeter of Spears’ property as he documented exactly what he was about to do.

He encountered a number of security personnel and openly stated his name and intention: ‘I’m Jason Alexander. The first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding!’

As Alexander descended a hillside, he entered the wedding tent where planners were still busy putting the finishing touches, even shaking hands with some of the workers.

Several rows of wooden benches could be seen lined up, together with an alter covered in pink roses under which the couple would later say their vows.

Alexander introduced himself to several of the workers present who are helping to put everything into place.

He then marched inside the house demanding to know: ‘Where’s Britney?’

The video occasionally cut out completely but Alexander could be seen bounding up a fight of stairs to the second story before entering what appears to be a bedroom while still calling out Britney’s name.

Eventually, Alexander was apprehended by a member of the security team who could be see holding a gun in his hand, which he kept pointed towards the floor.

The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department raced to the scene to respond to a trespassing call. Three police cars arrived at the singer’s Thousand Oaks home just after 2.30pm, along with a fire truck.

An onlooker told DailyMail.com: ‘It all happened very fast. Three cop cars just showed up and went screeching up her drive. We were all trying to figure out what’s going on, especially after the fire truck left.’

When reached by phone, Alexander’s father, Dennis, told DailyMail.com, ‘No comment,’ on his son’s antics.

Alexander was arrested on an outstanding warrant not for criminal trespass – although those charges may be added, police sources have told DailyMail.com,

The reason for the ‘out county warrant’ has yet to be determined.

The horse and carriage arrived shortly after 4pm and were the latest in a long line of arrivals, following minivans carrying workers and caterers.

Spears hired luxe catering firm Contemporary Catering to provide food for the 80 guests expected at the wedding. On its website, the company says ‘something sacred is at stake at every event’ and boasts of using the best local ingredients, adding: ‘Our commitment to quality ingredients goes uncompromised.

‘We utilize local organic produce whenever possible and source sustainable poultry and meat from local ranches.’

A sample wedding menu includes appetizers of Kobe beef sliders and Ahi tuna tartare, followed by entrees such as ‘a duet of spice rubbed, grilled and sliced flank steak’ or Santa Barbara sea bass served with charred fennel, saffron and a tomato herb cream sauce.Puddings include panna cotta with berry compote and a molten chocolate cake. 

Celebrities were then seen descending upon Britney’s home to attend the ceremony.

Missing from the action was the Toxic singer’s estranged family, including her ex-conservator father Jamie Spears, 69, and her younger sister Jamie Lynn Spears, 31. 

Spears’ ex-husband Kevin Federline confirmed to TMZ earlier in the day that their sons Sean Preston, 16, and Jayden James, 15, would also but absent from the ceremony, but that they’re ‘happy for Britney and wish her and Sam all the best going forward.’

Spears and Asghari engaged back in September 2021 after five years of dating. At the time the pop star revealed the happy news via Instagram, sharing a smiling video of her flashing her custom four-carat Forever Diamonds NY engagement ring while her husband-to-be peeked in from the side.

Overwhelmed with excitement, Spears wrote: ‘I can’t f**king believe it!!!’

It came not long after news that her father, Jamie, was moving to end her financial conservatorship – a ruling which Britney previously revealed stopped her from getting married or having children with Asghari.

Asghari’s  manager, Brandon Cohen, confirmed the news via a statement shortly after the lovebirds both posted on their Instagram accounts.

‘The couple made their long-standing relationship official today and are deeply touched by the support, dedication, and love expressed to them,’ he said, adding that Britney’s new ring was designed by New York City-based jeweler Roman Malayev.

The bespoke design features a brilliant stone in a platinum cathedral setting, and is enhanced with a floating solitaire design and has pavé detailing on the bridge.

The celebrity couple has also enjoyed a series of luxury getaways in the months since the engagement, as they have been seen in Hawaii, Las Vegas, and opulent Mexican resorts in Cabo San Lucas and Cancun.

The Baby One More Time songstress has stated that she had a number of plans following the end of her 13-year conservatorship last November, among them was getting married, purchasing a new home, and having more children.

She and Asghari revealed that they were expecting their first child together in April, but tragically suffered a pregnancy loss in May. Both have expressed hopes of having a child in the future.

Iran-born Asghari initially met Spears in October of 2016 when they worked together on her video Slumber Party, and they began dating soon thereafter.

Donald ‘Reg’ Jones (1995–1997)

Britney got her first official boyfriend, Reg Jones, when she was only 14 and he was 17.

In Lynne Spears’ 2008 memoir Through The Storm, Britney’s mother claimed that it was actually Jones whom her daughter lost her virginity to, not her future boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

In 2001, Jones put up two letter than the singer had written him while she was a teen, include one in which she broke up with him.

Justin Timberlake (1998–2002)

Britney’s first serious relationship was with her former Mickey Mouse Club costar Justin Timberlake, who was then part of NSYNC.

Following their 2002 split, the singer publicly blamed Spears for their break up and used his ‘heartbreak’ to promote his music. A lookalike actress was also used to represent Spears in his video for Cry Me A River, which fans took to be a breakup song about their relationship.

Timberlake later wrote in an open apology that he was ‘deeply sorry’ and would ‘take accountability’ admitting that he had ‘failed’ her, after their relationship came under fresh scrutiny following the release of documentaries looking into Spears’ conservatorship.

Wade Robson (2002)

The Toxic singer reportedly moved on in the wake of her split from Timberlake with choreographer Wade Robson, who worked for both her and Justin’s group NSYNC. 

Although it was never been confirmed by any of the trio, at the time it was rumoured that Wade was the real reason for the Justin and Britney split. 

Yet their relationship was short lived and Britney and Wade had split within the year.

Fred Durst (2003)

After the breakup with Robson, Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst claimed that he dated Britney, though she denied that they ever had a relationship.

The couple spent time together when working on songs for Britney’s new album.  

‘It just became a fiasco of madness,’ Durst told MTV of the alleged breakup. ‘[But] I always stay true to my heart and true to everything I did and my intentions, and I am in no way a liar.’

Britney was also rumored around this time to have dated Jared Leto, but he never confirmed the alleged romance and she denied that they were eve ran item.

After they were seen together, she said they were just ‘really good friends.’ 

The dating rumours started after fans theorised that Spears had gone after Leto because he was Cameron Diaz’s ex and Diaz, at the time, was dating Spears’ ex Timberlake.

Colin Farrell (2003)

There was clearly something going on between Britney and actor Colin Farrell in 2003, when they were seen kissing at the premiere of his film The Recruit, where they also walked the red carpet.

However, he shrugged the affectionate display off and said he was ‘just a 26-year-old guy who’s single and having a good time.’

While their fling may only have lasted a week, Farrell memorialized their relationship by sending Spears a shirt that read: ‘I slept with Colin Farrell and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.’

The 40-year-old was easily able to scale a fence, descend a rocky hillside and slip inside the wedding venue, all-the-while telling security exactly who he was, and why he was there – just hours before the fairytale ceremony got underway.

Alexander’s arrest is the third arrest in 13 months. Police sources revealed he also has a felony warrant for larceny in another county.
