Audi A5 Cabriolet
Anna Paquin and her partner Stephen Moyer seem to have chosen a route of practicality and style while driving around in the UK. They have chosen the Audi A5 Cabriolet, a convertible which comes with cool looks and a roof that can be pulled over even while driving around at 50 km/h, a boon in UK where it might rain anytime. The hood is also acoustically sound. When the sun's out, however, one can enjoy the breeze and outdoors while zooming to 100 km/h in just under 6.3 seconds, thanks to the 2.0-liter, TFSI petrol/diesel engine. The interiors carry the brilliance and finish of any Audi. Overall, this is a good-value luxury car with an excellent mileage too.

Interestingly, once the couple were officially announced "man and wife", Stephen was seen rushing towards the sea with some close friends to enjoy a cool, swimming session. Whereas, the guests enjoyed playing guitar and dancing to the wedding tunes at the stage backside to celebrate the wedding ceremony.
Further, the late beach booze party was probably the most enjoyable part of the event, where Elijah Wood was also seen shaking his booty with Anna Paquin. Notably, the beautiful sunset made the entire atmosphere more scenic and pleasant, while the gentle breeze created a certain soothing effect. The wedding ceremony concluded with thanksgiving bonbonnier gifts being handed to the guests.
