Tina Knowles, Beyoncé’s mother, has shared never-seen-before photos of her daughter’s wedding to Jay-Z to celebrate their 12th anniversary.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z wed in secret at the rapper’s New York City penthouse in April 2008. The proud mother, 66, uploaded a sweet black and white photo from the 2008 ceremony on the weekend the power couple look back on their big day.


The singer is seen shouting in the air as she takes the rapper’s hand after they tied the knot in front of friends and family in New York.

She captioned the Instagram shot: “Happy anniversary to Bey and J️ay seems like yesterday these guys walked down the Aisle. Those are my arms in the fluffing her dress!!!”

“Such beautiful memories of that day now it’s twelve years later ! Three gorgeous babies later and love still prevails -️ ahem. I designed that dress!”

Tina has had a helping hand with many of the star’s iconic outfits and styles ever since her Destiny’s Child days.

But the mother previously revealed Beyoncé, 38, had reservations after hearing the idea.


Tina said: “She was so sweet to let me do that.”

“She came back later one day and she said, ‘You know, when my daughter gets married, I’m going to let her pick out her own dress. Maybe she wasn’t so excited about it at the time, but she’s a sweetheart.”

The singer loved it in the end – as well as her fans who responded to the wedding shot over the weekend.

One wrote: “That gown is so beautiful. You are so talented!”


Another congratulated: “They look so happy you played a big part in the big day like all good mums do!”
