It’s not often that we get a glimpse inside the glamorous world of celebrity weddings, but when we do, they’ve often luxurious, glitzy affairs that many people could only dream of.
Take a look at a few of these examples from some of Hollywood’s most unforgettable wedding moments.
Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Despite the way the marriage ended, the wedding itself was nothing short of phenomenal. The couple – TomKat – hired out an entire 15 th-century Italian castle and invited a swathe of fellow celebrities.
The wedding dress was a beautiful, off-the-shoulder gown designed by Giorgio Armani, and the couple treated their guests to a lavish fireworks display later in the evening.
Prince William and Kate Middleton
It’s the wedding that nobody can stop talking about. That dress. Those jewels. That uniform. The 2011 wedding was held in the majestic Westminster Abbey, after which the happy couple travelled to Buckingham Palace in an open-top carriage.
The wedding itself reportedly cost just over 20 million pounds and was watched by more than 24 million people around the world, as well as the million people who turned out in London to catch a glimpse of the couple in person. They might not be a typical celebrity couple, but they certainly get just as much, if not more, attention than any A-Lister.
Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Everyone’s favourite Aussie couple Nicole and Keith married in the winter of 2006 in the Cardinal Ceretti Memorial Chapel at St Patrick’s Estate in Sydney.
Nicole says she cried tears of happiness the whole way to the church, but when she stepped out of the Rolls Royce, she looked as statuesque and flawless as ever in a dress by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. Instead of a wedding registry or table full of gifts at the reception, the generous couple requested guests make donations to the Sydney Children’s Hospital. And for the reception, none other than Neil Finn of Crowded House performed for the couple and guests.
John Krasinski and Emily Blunt
These gorgeous two Hollywood stars tied the knot in mid-2010 and have been positively adorable ever since.
Proving that it pays to have friends in high places, this loved up pair borrowed a stunning Italian villa on the edge of Lake Como. A villa that was, in fact, owned by George Clooney.
Mr Clooney was in attendance, alongside stars such as Meryl Streep and Jimmy Kimmel.
Celine Dion and Rene Angelil
It’s been more than 20 years since this Canadian songbird married her manager, but the memories are still fresh today.
The pair were wed in the beautiful Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, but one of the most stunning parts of the wedding was the 7-pound tiara worn by Celine. Made from 2,000 Austrian crystals, this veritable crown was a unique and dazzling design that was only fitting for a bride wearing a dress that took more than 1,000 man-hours to complete.
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
George Clooney was long known as a bachelor of Hollywood – until he met human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin. This intelligent beauty and the Hollywood A-lister wed in 2014 in a simple and perfect civil marriage ceremony in Venice, Italy.
The pair arrived at the ceremony by a boat named ‘Amore', and were accompanied by a small fleet of boats occupied by fellow stars such as U2 singer Bono, and actors Matt Damon and Bill Murray.
Her costumes included a creamy white jumpsuit for the ceremony itself and a jaw-dropping Oscar de la Renta French lace gown for the ceremony with friends.
