Pamela Anderson is anything but conventional – and she’s proved that once more with her shock announcement that she’s married her bodyguard Dan Hayhurst.
The couple shunned the usual glitz and glam of a typical Hollywood wedding to have an intimate, rustic ceremony at her Canadian countryside home without any guests – and we have all the exclusive images below, just for OK! VIP members.

Sharing beautifully personal photos from their special day, the actress says, “I am in love. We were married on Christmas Eve with both our families’ blessing, everyone we know is happy for us.”
The ceremony took place at her home in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, which was previously owned by her grandparents and has a very special place in her heart. She reveals, “I was married on the property I bought from my grandparents 25 years ago.
"This is where my parents were married and they are still together. I feel like I’ve come full circle.”
She continues, “I think this romantic property has a lot of healing energy, I’m at peace here.” The actress first met Dan last year when he was hired to work on her house, and since then she says the pair have been together 24/7, their romance quickly blossoming.
“This one year together has felt like seven – like dog years,” she joked.
The bride looked absolutely stunning in an antique 1940s satin slip and soft blue silk ribbon corset from Lace Embrace and a tulle skirt by Joanna Delaney Bridal. Her statement veil was by Valentino, and she held a natural-looking bouquet of white and pink roses.
Pamela also paid tribute to her love of the outdoors, wearing a pair of practical green Hunter wellies underneath her gorgeous gown. “It’s the Canadian girl in me,” she explains. “It’s a big property but a few people passing by could see the fairy tale gown with the long Princess Diana veil dragging in the mud. Heaven.”
Dan kept his look simple in a pair of black trousers, a shirt and a pair of trainers.
The couple’s wedding photographer Heather Ross helped a blissful Pamela put together bouquets and picked pine boughs from her property to decorate the setting.
Heather explains even the choice of flowers held a special significance for the spiritual couple. “Olive branch for peace, roses for romantic love, exotic orchid for passionate love, and baby’s breath to represent new beginnings,’ she says.
Speaking about the service Heather adds, “Pamela was beaming with love. They were just so happy and focused on each other.”
Heather was also tasked with making the couple’s wedding cake, a two-tiered vegan extravaganza with a glass stag, pine tree and glittery hearts on top. The double vanilla, triple coconut delight was topped with an antique handblown glass deer ornament to represent the bride’s love of animals, while the snowy white carnation was a symbol of ‘pure love’.
The ceremony was blessed by the Canadian First Nation, who held a traditional ‘cedar brushing’ ceremony on the property to ward off negativity. They sang The Paddle Song, to signify the start of a new journey and the couple’s new life together, and drums played throughout.
Understandably, the Covid-19 pandemic limited the amount of people the couple could invite to the ceremony, so they wed with no friends or family present. Pamela chose not to have bridesmaids and Dan didn’t have a best man. “We prefer to be ourselves,” she explains.
Asked whether they plan to escape on a romantic honeymoon once the Covid travel restrictions ease, an overjoyed Pamela exclaims, “Every day is our honeymoon.”
As a self-confessed “hopeless romantic”, Pamela’s simple nuptials marked her fifth wedding ceremony.
She first wed Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee in 1995 after just four days of knowing one another. The pair share two sons together, Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23. She then famously got hitched to musician Kid Rock in 2006, wearing just a bikini and a sailor’s hat. They split a few months later and in 2007 she married poker player Rick Salomon. The pair divorced in 2008, but remarried in 2014 – parting ways for good the following year.
It was reported that Pamela had married businessman Jon Peters, 74, in January 2020 at Shutters Hotel in Santa Monica, California. But she has since denied the ceremony was official, insisting, “We were never married. He is a movie maker and… I guess he just needed a little attention?”
Quoting the Cuban American author Anaïs Nin, Pamela reflected on her beautiful, if unconventional, wedding day. “Do not seek the because. In love there is no because. No reason. No explanation. No solutions,” she said.
We hope Pamela and Dan will spend many happy years together.
