Molly-Mae Hague appears to have missed PrettyLittleThing founder Umar Kamani’s lavish wedding to Nada Kamani which took place over the weekend.

The fashion brand CEO, 36, and his bride Nada, 31, tied the knot in two ceremonies in the South of France – after a fairytale proposal in August 2021. 

But Molly-Mae, 24, didn’t appear to have been one of the guests after stepping own as creative director of the brand last June after having her daughter Bambi.

While other stars attending including Kate and Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Thomas and Lucy Mecklenburgh and Naomi Campbell were seen in social media content shared from the nuptials, Molly-Mae was notably absent and hasn’t posted on Instagram.

Molly-Mae was a key part of the brand – loved by Love Islanders and influencers – until she took a step back from the £5million-a-year PrettyLittleThing creative director role after 22 months last summer.

She was appointed by the fashion giant in August 2021 and reportedly paid an enormous £400,000 per month, but has now left the high-profile job after giving birth to her first child Bambi last January.

Speaking on her YouTube channel, Molly said: ‘I will forever have the most insane relationship with PLT… they are literally my family. I am still working with them and doing collections and edits, but I have actually decided to step down as my creative director role.

‘Over the last few weeks, I have realised that I’m only going to get this time once with my first-born child and I’m only going to get Bambi being four months old once and I feel like I’ve had to rearrange my life a little bit and lose some commitments that I did have.

‘Myself and PLT have decided collectively that as much as the creative director role was incredible and I have literally loved being the creative director of PLT more than anything it was such an amazing chapter for me it has naturally come to an end.

‘I am a mum now and I never really gave myself a maternity leave and I got straight back into work instantly because my work is my phone and showing my life is my work. The last thing I would want to be is in a role that I can’t fulfil right this moment.’

She added: ‘There is no drama, there is absolutely no tea… nothing has gone on.’

Representatives for Molly-Mae and Umar have been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

Friday’s ceremony took place at the Grand Allée in the lavish hotel and was certainly one for the books as it hosted a variety of celebrity guests and featured musical performances from Mariah Carey and Andrea Bocelli.

Following their celebrations on Friday, Umar and Nada celebrated again on Saturday with a traditional Indian ceremony. A white party to welcome guests was held on Thursday, with a relaxed barbeque on Sunday finishing off the four day extravaganza.

The weekend of celebrations brought together their celeb pals, from supermodel Naomi Campbell to actor Tessa Thompson, comedian Russell Peters, singer Christina Milian, Arabia editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut, and Red Sea Film Festival Foundation CEO Mohammed Al Turki.

Umar’s close friend, ex Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas served as one of the Best Men. 

For Friday’s ceremony Nada looked radiant in a custom Maria Grazia Chiuri-designed Dior gown which boasted an impressive train and simple capped sleeves. 

Fast fashion boss Umar looked incredibly dapper as he waited under a seaside gazebo in a classic Tom Ford tuxedo. 

Andrea Bocelli also added to the romantic ambience as he performed one of his greatest songs ‘The Prayer’ for Nada’s walk down the aisle as a full orchestra joined him. 

In an exclusive interview with Vogue Arabia, the newlyweds revealed that their first meeting at the altar on Friday was among the most special moments of the weekend. 

Nada shared: ‘It’s something every little girl dreams about, but to do it in such style, in such beautiful surroundings – and of course to the man of my dreams! – was really a fairytale.’ 

Umar added: ‘What can I say? I was speechless when I saw Nada in that dress. It was the most emotional moment.’ 

The couple hired event planners Banana Split to bring their dream venue to life, fusing a western style white wedding, and an Indian wedding.

After the romantic al fresco ceremony, guests enjoyed an elegant old-fashioned black-tie dinner before a late night afterparty, which included a special surprise performance from music icon Mariah Carey.

The singer, 55, looked nothing short of sensational as she cut an elegant figure in a semi-sheer Dior gown. 

During the performance, the singer had all of the guests on their feet as she sang her heart out to some of her biggest hits. 

Umar’s close pal, ex-Coronation Street actor Richard Fleeshman rounded out the musical acts as he performed Moon Dance at Friday’s reception. 

On Saturday the couple celebrated again with Indian nuptials, as guests shared a glimpse of the couple in traditional white embellished outfits with garlands around their necks.

A laid back barbeque on Sunday will complete the four day extravaganza after a glam white party kicked off the celebrations on Thursday. 

Supermodel Naomi Campbell, 53, stunned in a pale peach corset gown which boasted an off-the-shoulder design, sheer sleeves, and an embellished skirt for Friday’s ceremony. 

Joining her at the lavish ceremony was Saudi Arabian film producer Mohammed Al Turki, 37, who cut a dapper figure in a black tuxedo. 

Best man Ryan Thomas, 39, was joined by his ex-TOWIE star fiancé Lucy Mecklenburgh, 32 for the celebrations.  

Lucy stunned in a pink floor-grazing gown with organza detailing after wearing white the day before for the pre-wedding party. 

Former footballer Rio Ferdinand, 45, and his wife Kate, 32, were also dressed to the nines for the special occasion. 

Kate cut an elegant figure in a stylish black gown which boasted a flattering sweetheart neckline while Rio looked handsome in a black tuxedo.

Former Strictly Come Dancing star, Adam Thomas, 35, cut a dapper look in a black suit while his wife Caroline looked chic in a black tulle dress and fascinator.

Professional boxer Anthony Joshua swapped his boxing gloves for a formal suit for the day as he got snapped next to pal Scott Thomas, 35. 

Diary of a CEO podcaster and Dragons’ Den star Steven Bartlett also attended the lavish wedding ceremony and looked incredible in a two-piece suit with a classic bow tie. 

Nada and Umar officially kicked off their weekend of celebrations on Thursday by hosting a poolside welcome party for all their guests attending. 

The get-together took place by the pool overlooking the Mediterranean and gave everyone a chance to settle in and spend some quality time together before the big day.

The happy couple spared no expense for the welcome party as they hired henna tattoo artists and fire and belly dancers. 

A stunning fireworks display also lit up the sky and served as a highlight of the night for the VIP guests. 

For the occasion, Nada dressed in a stunning custom-made Zuhair Murad gown and completed the look with several elegant jewellery items. 

It comes after Umar popped the question in Côte d’Azur in 2021, which inevitably made choosing the wedding location a straightforward task for Nada. 

He hired out the Monte Carlo Opera House and had several professional photographers on hand to capture the moment. 

In typically extravagant fashion, Umar filled the historic theatre with 10,000 white roses, and dozens of candles while 25 musicians played Beauty and the Beast as radiant Nadia walked into the room.

Although she married the king of fast fashion, Nada eschewed his brands for a £1,790 slinky white gown with bejewelled straps and cut-out detailing from London-based designer David Koma for the occasion.

The dress perfectly complemented her ring – a 21-carat diamond sparkler flown in from New York celebrity jeweller Richard Nektalov. 

Umar, whose family built their fashion empire from a Manchester market stall into a multi-billion pound business, looked dapper in a £4,300 Tom Ford suit and £730,000 Patek Philippe watch. 

The breathtaking proposal came after a whirlwind romance for Umar and Nadia, who only stepped out publicly together for the first time in March 2020.
