Assange and Moris kept their relationship a secret for six years. While they also have two sons when he was hiding in the embassy to escape extradition to Sweden. The couple announced their engagement in November and were later permitted to get married at UK prison, where he is currently lodged.
Assange, 50, is wanted by US authorities for publishing secret documents related to US military and diplomatic cables through Wikileaks.
Assange and Moris will have a tiny ceremony for their wedding, conducted by a registrar, with just four members—2 official witnesses and two security guards. Moris’ wedding gown was designed by Vivienne Westwood, the British fashion designer who has been a long-time supporter of Assange.
