Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian set to wed on Thursday

Tennis champion, Serena Williams, 36, is to marry her fiance, Alexis Ohanian, 34, on Thursday, just 11 weeks after the pair welcomed their daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.

The wedding is being organised in such a secrecy that the guests have been informed only of the city where it will be held but the venue remains a top secret.

Meanwhile, an insider has revealed that the couple who share a daughter together will tie the knot in front of some of America’s biggest names at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, including Beyoncé, Jay Z and Kris Jenner.

Guests will not learn the details until Thursday morning.

Speaking with, a source said;

"Serena and Alexis have spared no expense on their dream wedding".

The event is said to be costing the couple over $1 million to stage and is being put together by celebrity wedding planner, Preston Bailey.

The star-studded wedding guest list includes Prince Harry’s girlfriend, Meghan Markle, Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria and the pop singers, Kelly Rowland and Ciara.

The source added;

"They have hired the best of the best and can’t wait to get married in The Big Easy. It’s a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved.

Serena and Alexis chose the Contemporary Arts Center because of its incredible architecture and history. They have instructed Preston to fill the hall with thousands of dollars worth of crystals and flowers. The hall will be totally transformed".

Guests will not be allowed to come into the wedding venue with mobile telephones as well as other electronic devices to the ceremony because Serena has signed an exclusive deal with her British friend & Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue, Dame Anna Wintour, for the glossy magazine to run photographs.

The couple who met in 2015 are said to be bringing a nanny along to the wedding to take care of their baby. The source continued;

"Alexis will have a babysitter on hand just for her the entire night. Both parents wouldn’t dream of not having her there. She will be a part of the wedding as much as possible for an 11-week-old. They are totally and utterly besotted with her".

Approximately 250 people are expected to witness the marriage and extra security has been brought in to keep any nosey onlookers out.
