Gregory Andrews, aka “DJ Ruckus,” just married Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik in a weekend-long Bohemian-style private ceremony on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas.
Luckily for us, Shaik shared the details of her special day with Brides.com.
The wedding was attended by friends and family, with plenty of celebs involved – including supermodels, music producers, and DJs. Guests were treated to fresh seafood, jerk chicken, conch fritters, and a bourbon-flavoured tiered wedding cake, washed down with Mumm champagne, rum cocktails, and “truckloads of Don Julio tequila.”

Gregory Andrews, aka ‘DJ Ruckus,’ and Australian Victoria’s Secret model Shanina Shaik married in a Bohemian-style private ceremony on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas at the weekend.
The couple, who met at Coachella and have been engaged for three years, arrived on the island by private jet, of course.
It all began on Friday evening, when the guests joined the couple for a rehearsal dinner at an idyllic beachfront terrace. It had long white tables decorated with vibrant pink and orange flowers, wicker place mats, and bamboo chairs.
For the rehearsal dinner, Shaik opted for a v-neck button-down white dress with long, slightly puffy sleeves paired with wedges, both by Australian designer Zimmermann. Here she’s joined by ‘matron of honour’ Nicole Williams English who wore black for contrast.
You could be forgiven for mistaking her bridal party for a backstage photo of a Victoria’s Secret Angel show. They wore matching Champagne-coloured silk dressing gowns while they got ready.
The memories made with this special group of ladies has been such an adventure! We’ve laughed, cried, danced the night away in a couple different countries, sang our hearts out, lost our voices, sprayed champagne, stayed up all night and most importantly became family! One thing we all have in common is how much we love you @shaninamshaik BRIDESMAIDS FOR LIFE! ???????????????????????????? #MrsAndrews
Shaik’s wedding gown was custom-made over eight months by designers at Ralph & Russo. ‘I wanted it to be simple, bohemian, and elegant,’ she told Brides.
“I love a boho style and I wanted to give it a little twist by incorporating lace,” she added.
The off-the-shoulder style was offset by a diamond-encrusted necklace by Lorraine Schwartz.
Her bouquet was made of baby’s breath.
The form-fitting lace dress had a scoop back and long train.
Fellow VS model Jasmine Tookes was also a member of the bridal party. Shaik’s bridesmaids wore custom Zimmermann dresses to fit each individual style and figure, while ‘matron of honour’ Nicole Williams wore a dress by Michael Castello.
The 10 glamorous bridesmaids were gifted personalised clutches.
Meanwhile, the groom wore a classic black tuxedo by Tom Ford…
His groomsmen, who included actor Evan Ross and music producer Dallas Austin, opted for a similar style. Before the wedding ceremony, Ruckus reportedly gifted his groomsmen each a bottle of Don Julio tequila.

The couple were married under a rustic wooden alter on the beach…
…In front of their guests, who all followed the neutral dress code.
They sat on wooden benches fitted with big white cushions for comfort.
The ceremony was officiated by Joseph Simmons, aka ‘Rev Run,’ of Hip Hop group Run DMC, who is also a practising minister.

The couple’s first dance was a mix of ‘Electric’ by Alina Baraz and Michael Jackson’s ‘Remember the Time,’ Shaik told Brides.

“After we met and started dating, I had to spend a lot of time in Australia for work and Greg sent me the most amazing flowers and a card that said, ‘Do you remember the time we first fell in love? I miss you,'” Shaik said. “Since then, ‘Remember the Time’ has been our song.”
The wedding dinner was held in a white tent with two long white tables with lanterns hanging overhead, and a sweetheart table where the newlyweds sat. The guests were treated to fresh seafood, jerk chicken, and conch fritters.
There was a bourbon-flavored tiered wedding cake for dessert.
They drank Mumm champagne, rum cocktails and ‘truckloads of Don Julio tequila,’ according to DJ and music producer Saint-Clair’s Instagram post.
The night ended with what looks like a proper party, led by a Bahamian carnival group. At this point Shaik changed into a dress by Michael Costello, with a pair of Jimmy Choos for dancing.
