I do love celebrity weddings. They are usually a bit whacky, or they might start new trends so I always look forward to it.
With COVID still ravaging the world, many celebrities have postponed their weddings – and there is still a good chance many of these celebs will do the same in 2021 – but until we hear otherwise – they are due to tie the knot this year! Let’s see who..
Katy Perry & Orlando Bloom

This will be both couple’s second wedding. Katy was formerly married to Russell Brand for 14 months in 2010, and Orlando was married to Australian model Miranda Kerr for three years in 2013. Orlando and Miranda share a son, Flynn.
