Celebrity Bride | The Victoria’s Secret Model Married DJ Rukus In The Bahamas
Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik married Gregory Andrews in a beachside Bahamas wedding.
The couple—she’s a model, he’s an in-demand DJ—married this past Saturday on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas. The pair first met in 2015, when Shanina found herself sans entourage during Coachella. To propose, Greg planned a tropical Christmas vacation with Shanina and her mother at his family’s place in the Bahamas. He popped the question in front of the crystal blue waters. And that’s not all: Greg proposed with not one but two Lorraine Schwartz rings.
After an engagement like that, it’s no surprise that Shanina and Greg decided to marry in the Bahamas as well. In fact, they decided to say “I do” on the exact stretch of sand where they were engaged. “I’ve always dreamt of marrying on the beach,” says the bride, who grew up in Australia. The stunning setting—the Other Side in Eleuthera—became their inspiration for the day, and the couple enlisted the help of Little Island Design to create a tropical-inspired wedding there. “Our wedding reflected our personal style (simple and elegant) with the added touch of a bohemian vibe as well,” explains the bride.
On the morning of her wedding, Shaik make-up artist Rae Morris and hair stylist Jennifer Yepez to create her look. The look was dewy with hints of bronze and gold, which worked perfectly with an effortless and messy bun.

The couple invited their friends and family for a weekend’s worth of festivities. The events started on Friday night with a rehearsal dinner on a terrace overlooking the beach. Shanina wore a long-sleeved white dress and wedges by Zimmermann for the occasion. The groom wore a bright shirt that match the party’s floral arrangements.
Shaik’s bridesmaids included fellow VS stars Jasmine Tookes and Nadine Leopold, while her wedding ring constituted of two diamond bands by Lorraine Schwartz (to match her sizable Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring).
