Victoria Secret Model Shanina Shaik and her now-estranged husband were in a state of bliss ever after they tied the knot in a beach wedding ceremony held in the Bahamas.
The Australian native made a confirmation on the wedding and provided some updates on their plans before eventually getting married in April of 2018. Though complications arose as both DJ Ruckus and Shanina had their difficulties with compilations of having busy schedules.
DJ and Shanina's marriage, however, came down crumbling a year later.
Wedding Plans: Planning & "Dieting" For The Big Day
DJ Ruckus, real name Gregory Andrews is a successful 35-year-old full-time disk jockey, who married the beautiful and envied by most, Victoria Secret model Shanina Shaik.
The couple had made plans on making their marriage a local one, but first having difficulty deciding where the venue would be husband’s ethnicity being American and that it would be difficult for everyone to travel to Australia.
"I think the States - my fiancé is American so to try and get everyone to Australia is going to be a bit hard."
The date for the actual wedding was still not yet confirmed. Then, in the matter of speaking, both with the duo's comments signaled that they were “close” to date while parents, to be more accurate her mother, Kim, knew a little more:
"I know the year but I don't know the date."
Speaking of the wedding; rough ideas spread out of how it goes with Shanina's stating:-
“Simple and sleek and a bit bohemian.”
With their busy work ahead of them, the two were preparing ahead and excited for the coming day. DJ Ruckus explained:-
'She is really excited, she is just trying to work out even our engagement party - with our schedules, it's really hard to get us in the one place at the one time - it's really difficult,'
With the ring being the unique part of marriage day aside from the dress she had planned to wear, DJ Ruckus had put no number on the expense of the ring.

In all bit of confusion, the wedding was still in progress but have not told anybody not even close relatives as they, themselves, were unsure and had not fully confirmed their date of marriage.
The location wise was reliable, being it in America, a rough guess of the wedding would or could go, but the one thing they were sure of was that they were marrying each other.

Held in America, the wedding, as expected, was lavish. On the day of her marriage, the 28-year-old wore a custom-made Ralph and Russo wedding dress while her then-husband DJ Ruckus looked dapper in a black Tom Ford tuxedo. Speaking of her dress in Vogue interview, she revealed:-
“The whole process took around eight months to finalize. In the end, we came up with the dress that I have always dreamt off.”
What's interesting is the fact the former duo had opted to get married at the same venue as they had initially got engaged. As for their first dance, Shanina and DJ Ruckus went with Bad Girl by singer Usher.
The likes of DJ Kiss, Politik & Rev Run entertained the guests at the wedding as they grace the stage with hits from yesteryears.
