The two got married at the Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados. The ceremony took place inside a pagoda, which was decorated with 500 red roses. Woods had booked the whole resort for a week. The resort includes a luxury hotel, an area with a spectacular beachfront, and two golf courses, along with their clubhouses. There were no photos of the wedding as the couple didn’t release any on social media. The venue was covered with tall trees and plants, so no one could see things from outside.
