New details and photographs have emerged of conservative commentator Candace Owens’ wedding to British Oxford graduate George Farmer, revealing the bride wore three gowns and their guests donned red ‘Make Weddings Great Again’ hats at the reception.
The 30-year-old political activist, a well-known supporter of the President who was once praised for her views by Kanye West, met Farmer, 28, the son of a baron and conservative peer, in December 2018.
The pair got engaged over a FaceTime call after just two-and-a-half weeks of dating.
They tied the knot at the end of August, over Labor Day weekend, at Trump Winery, near Charlottesville, in front of a host of equally conservative guests, including actor Jon Voight, radio host Larry Elder, Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage and Charlie Kirk, who founded right-wing Turning Point USA.
In some images posted to social media, the couple – who live in a rented apartment in Mount Vernon, Washington – thanked Eric Trump for the ‘incredible venue and sunset in the captions, and revealed their simple white wedding cake was topped with a red Make Weddings Great Again’ hat, which guests also wore later in the evening.
Eric Trump is the president of the winery, and oversees the company’s winemaking, marketing and global distribution, according to the Trump Winery website.

She also posted images of her three dresses, writing: ‘To the ladies asking — I wore @moniquelhuillierbride for all three of my dresses. I don’t know her personally but I think her gowns are beautiful, timeless, and delicate.
‘I went with long sleeves down the aisle and for the reception because I think modesty is always en Vogue.. Princess Grace of Monaco was/is the most elegant bride of all time.
‘A beautiful bride is a kind bride. I’ve seen a lot of women treat their vendors, bridesmaids, make up artists, parents, (and sometimes even their grooms) terribly leading up to their wedding days. The most important thing for both George and I was to make sure every single person that played a role in our wedding, from the vendors to the guests, knew how grateful, excited and blessed we were to have them be a part of our wedding.
‘Our policy was kindness and love throughout the entire process. There are a lot of people I will thank in later posts but first and foremost, to our wedding planner: @justalittleditty Dickie Morris, we love you so much.
‘From start to finish just the most wonderful person in the entire world. You are now our planner for everything, forever and always.’
Her new husband also kept things traditional, wearing a morning suit with tails.
Who is George Farmer?
George is the son of UK baron and conservative peer Michael Farmer – a London financier who has donated more than £2.6million to the British Conservative party.
Michael was dubbed ‘Mr Copper’ after making £100 million from metals trading.
George, who has two siblings, became active in Oxford’s political scene shortly after going up to St Peter’s College to read theology in 2008.
He attended the elite fee-paying St Paul’s School for Boys in London and was social secretary of the Oxford University Conservative Association (OUCA) in his first year.
In 2012 it was revealed his dad funded his son’s membership of the notorious Bullingdon Club at Oxford University, whose members are renowned for their excessive privilege and wild antics.
During George Farmer’s time in the Bullingdon Club, its members were accused of going on the rampage at a smart hotel.
His dad also bailed out Oxford’s Conservative Association when a racism row led to it being kicked out of the university. His son was a senior official at the time.
There was no suggestion George, who became an investment banker with Jefferies & Co, was involved in either the hotel incident or the race row.
They both shared a series of loved images from their special day to their social media pages where it appears their wedding ceremony was conducted outdoors.
Owens posted to her 1.7 million followers: ‘Before God, our family and friends— 8/31/19. The Honorable George and Candace Farmer.’ She shared two images from the day.
Farmer wrote: ‘Could my wife @RealCandaceO look anymore beautiful? She takes the crown for the most beautiful woman in the world.’
He later added: ‘The venue and sunset were incredible. Thank you @EricTrump and @trumpwinery for letting us use your beautiful venue.’
Posting a picture of his wife he said: ‘The woman I love more than anything – what an incredible day.’
Bridesmaids and guests wore mock MAGA hats, with ‘Make Weddings Great Again’ written on them as they enjoyed the evening celebrations dancing to a live band under fairy lights.
Radio host Elder wrote: ‘The incandescent @RealCandaceO got married today. Congratulations!!!#LifeIsGood.’
Journalist Peter Lloyd wrote: ‘Huge congratulations to @RealCandaceO and @GTSFarmer on their incredible wedding! Was such a pleasure to celebrate alongside them.’
Trump firebrand Owens, who hails from Connecticut, has courted controversy since she burst onto the political scene. In March this year she was slammed for using a laughing emoji in a tweet about the New Zealand mosque massacre after being named in the terrorist’s manifesto.
The gunman, Brenton Tarrant from New South Wales, Australia, named the conservative activist as his biggest influence in his 74-page manifesto.
But rather than distance herself from his views or even condemn his violence, she tweeted ‘LOL!’ followed by the emoji.
She went on to argue that she was not responsible for inspiring the attack and fumed that ‘racist white liberals’ were trying to blame her for it.
Owens has also been criticized for her pro-Trump activism, which has seen the President call her ‘tough’ and ‘someone I admire’.
In 2018, she co-founded the Blexit movement, which encourages black Americans to separate themselves from the Democrats. She was the former communications director of Turning Point, a conservative youth organization.
It was at the launch of the Turning Point UK event where she met Farmer.

WHO IS CANDACE OWENS?
Owens grabbed attention last April when Kanye West tweeted his support of her
Owens is an active Republican who regularly attends party events . Above, with Donald Trump Jr.
Owens, 29, was the communications director for Turning Points USA, a conservative youth organization.
She has made a name for herself by making controversial claims about race relations in the US and through an alliance with Kanye West.
Owens’ beliefs include that former president Barack Obama is to blame for disintegrating race relations in America and that West is one of the ‘bravest men’ in the country for publicly showing his support for Trump, who has an approval rating of 10% among African Americans.
In 2018, she co-founded the ‘Blexit’ movement, which encourages black Americans to distance themselves from the Democratic Party. She has also appeared on Fox and Friends where she shared her extreme beliefs that black Americans are being held down by the party.
Owens notoriously dislikes Black Lives Matter, which she labels as a group of ‘whiny toddlers’.
The young commentator gained attention when Kanye West tweeted that he ‘liked the way she thinks’ last year.
She replied desperately asking him for a meeting and telling him how much he inspired her.
In addition to working for Turning Points, she runs a YouTube channel and show where she interviews guests and discusses national issues.
Among her recent guests was Roseanne Barr who was fired by ABC last year for writing a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett.
Owens gave her a sympathetic ear as the pair discussed the #MeToo movement and Barr labeled some of the women who have come forward to say they have been the victims of sexual harassment and assault in work as ‘hoes’.
