Celebrity Weddings AlbumHave a peek into their big days...

Celebrity weddings are always a pleasure to read about. Not only is it entirely entertaining watching them blow up their money on a wedding gown, you can indulge on some celeb gossip as well.

If you feel like indulging in some celeb gossip, as well as some glamour and everything fancy, let’s have a peek into their big days!

Politicians

Donald & Melania Trump

Date: January 22, 2005

Status: Still Together

Donald met Melania at a New York Fashion Week party in 1998. That time, when he approached her and asked for her number, she didn’t give it but asked for his number instead (so she’ll be the one to contact him). She wasn’t interested, and considering the behaviour she’s having when she’s with him right now, it seems like she still isn’t. There were videos all around the internet that show how Melania doesn’t want to hold hands with Donald, as well as rumours that say they sleep in separate bedrooms. There were also allegations that Donald is a womanizer and that he’s sexually harassed a dozen women, which Melania said were all lies.

President Donald Trump and Melania’s relationship is indeed controversial internationally.

Barrack & Michelle Obama

Date: October 3, 1992

Status: Still Together

In 1989, while working in a law firm, Michelle Robinson became an advisor to a summer associate from Harvard Law. Barack Obama was also working at the said law firm at that time. Barack admitted not loving the corporate law world, but he found himself falling for Michelle. After their first date, they both knew that they both wanted each other.

After dating for three years, Michelle and Barack tied the knot. When asked about their vows, Michelle said, “Barack didn’t pledge riches, only a life that would be interesting. On that promise he delivered.”

Michelle wore a stunning off-the-shoulder duchess satin gown with a sweetheart neckline. Her dress featured floral appliqués, with a princess-length veil and opera gloves.

John & Jacqueline Kennedy

Date: September 12th, 1953

On one crisp sunny day at St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Newport, Rhode Island, Jackie wore a traditional ivory silk gown with a bouffant skirt made by Ann Lowe, an African-American designer. The gown was crafted from roughly 50 feet of ivory silk taffeta. Her rose-point lace veil, on the other hand, was a family treasure, first worn by her grandmother on her wedding day. Jackie wasn’t a big fan of the dress. She felt like it accentuated her flat chest and made her look like a ‘lampshade’. However, the gown drew praise from fashion commentators around the world.

Ryan Reynolds & Blake Lively

Date: September 9, 2012

Status: Still Together

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds’s relationship is the kind of relationship most women desire. Their love for each other is very obvious. Well, because they’re vocal about it. And if you’re a fan of them and you’ve watched all of their speeches, you’ll know that!

Blake and Ryan met in the set of Green Lantern movie back in 2010. That time, Ryan was still married to Scarlet Johansson. But after 2 years of marriage, in the same year, he filed for divorce. Rumours about Blake and Ryan dating surfaced in the last months of 2011. From then, paparazzi began to spot them together many times. They got married in 2012. In 2014, she had her first baby.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly,

“It was funny because for about a year after Green Lantern had come and gone and all that stuff, we were both single,” Ryan said. “We went on a double date. She was on a date with another guy, and I was on a date with another girl. That was the most awkward date probably because we were just like fireworks coming across.”

Their love story is cute!

Gene Simmons & Sharon Tweed

Date: October 1, 2011

Status: Still Together

Gene Simmons and Sharon Tweed had been together for 28 years before they tied the knot. Guests who witnessed the event at Beverly Hills Hotel said it was indeed a wedding fit for a rock star!

Their daughter, 19, served as maid of honour and their son, Nick, 22, was one of the groomsmen. Even the family dog, Snippy, joined in the celebration – serving as the ring bearer.

Shannon revealed that her decision on what gown to wear was very last minute. But she picked out her wedding shoes 10 years before the big day.

After spotting the ivory Rene Caovilla heels in a boutique in Santa Monica, she said, “I am going to get married in those some day.”

Luckily, the shoes matched perfectly with the Priscilla of Boston gown. She later changed into a Badgley Mischka dress for the reception.

Besides the dress, another stunner at the wedding was the bride’s 27-carat Goel Talasazan engagement ring. But the groom’s wedding band, by the same jeweller, also held a special meaning to Tweed-Simmons.

“My father died when I was 24 so he couldn’t be at the wedding, so I melted some of the gold from his wedding ring and put it in two strands representing our two kids,” she shares.

The couple had their rings engraved, with Simmons’s reading, “My Love Now and Forever,” and his bride’s inscribed with the words, “You are my first love and you will be my last love.”

Though Simmons originally resisted the idea of marriage – causing problems in the couple’s relationship as documented on their A&E reality show Gene Simmons Family Jewels (the new season kicked off Tuesday) – he says he has now definitely changed his tune.

“I look at my wedding band now,” he shares, “and think, ‘What was I afraid of all this time?'”

Yep, Neil Patrick Harris is a married man.

The famous How I Met Your Mother star got married to David Burtka in an intimate ceremony in Italy wearing custom Tom Ford tuxedo.

The couple announced their engagement via Twitter in June 2011 after passage of the Marriage Equality Act in New York. Harris then revealed that they actually got engaged five years earlier, but decided to keep the news a secret.

“Guess what? @DavidBurtka and I got married over the weekend. In Italy. Yup, we put the ‘n’ and ‘d’ in ‘husband’,” the newlywed posted on Twitter.

Keira Knightley & James Righton

Date: May 4, 2013

Status: Still Together

Keira Knightley and James Righton got married in a low-key ceremony in the town hall of the hilltop village of Mazan in the south of France.

Dressed in an above-the-knee strapless tulle dress, cropped Chanel boucle jacket, ballet pumps, and daisies on her hair, Keira looked utterly carefree.

James opted for a navy blue suit and light blue tie. The couple both wore sunglasses.

It was truly a simple ceremony, with the 11 guests dressing casually in chinos and open shirts and trainers. That number already include Klaxon’s bandmates.

The couple were then driven back to the Knightley family farmhouse to continue the celebrations at a reception for 50 guests.

Channing Tatum & Jenna Dewan

Date: July 11, 2009

Status: Divorced

*Wiping my tears because the following words will break my heart – and thousands of other hearts for sure.*

As much as I hate the Step Up movie for getting these love birds together, there’s no denying – Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan looked happy.

They had a fairytale wedding in Malibu, at a private estate overlooking the ocean. Both of looked gorgeous (of course) – Tatum clad in Giorgio Armani and Jenna Dewan in a Reem Acra gown with a sweetheart neckline and feathered skirt. They exchanged vows and Neil Lane wedding bands under pepper trees filled with white and blush florals. Her hair was pulled back from her face, and she carried a bouquet of white and pink roses by Mark’s Garden.

The couple loved fairies, thus the fairytale inspired wedding, and it included two flower girls who walked down the aisle wearing wings, a sit-down reception in a tent, decorated by Mark’s Garden with thousands of roses, hydrangeas and orchids in reds, fuchsia and blush. The wedding cake by Cake Divas was shaped as a magic castle filled with fairies in several flavours: red velvet, chocolate with chocolate fudge, and white with ‘funfetti’ frosting. To keep with the wedding theme, guests were given crystals as favours.

The couple honeymooned in Bali where they got matching tattoos.

Status: Still Together

It was an evening full of love and laughter for Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi, who exchanged personal wedding vows in front of their closest family and friends at their home in L.A.

Both brides wore designs by Zac Posen and sat on floor pillows along with author Wayne Dyer who officiated the ceremony.

After exchanging Neil Lane rings, the couple and their guests sat down for an all-vegan menu prepared by their personal chef David Silberkleit while Sweet Lady Jane created a vegan red velvet cake for the celebration.

Sarah Jessica Parker & Matthew Broderick

Date: May 19, 1997

Status: Still Together

Living up to expectations, Sarah Jessica Parker broke tradition when she married Matthew Broderick (wearing a suit straight off the rack) in a taffeta black dress.

The couple didn’t want the press to find out it was a wedding, and she didn’t want them to catch her buying a white dress, so they invited their guests to a ‘party’ at NYC who were surprised to find out that it was a wedding ceremony.

Sarah now has regrets about not wearing white. In 2009, she told Harper’s Bazaar that if she and Matthew ever renewed their vows, she plans to “white it up….. I’d wear a beautiful, proper, wedding dress like I should have worn that day”.

Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson

Date: April 30, 1988

Status: Still Together

27 years after and Tom Hanks said that the only thing they both argue about is who loves each other more. Tom Hanks was married to to his college sweetheart, the late Samantha Lewes, when he met Rita.

He wasn’t proud of this, but his chemistry with Rita was just too strong to ignore.

“Rita and I just looked at each other and — kaboing — that was that. I asked Rita if it was the real thing for her, and it just couldn’t be denied.” Tom and Samantha divorced in 1987, and a year later he married Rita.

Rita Wilson was one to jump on the double wedding dress bandwagon by wearing two dresses on her wedding. The first was an off-shoulder A-line gown and then she changed into a sexy shorter dress as they leave. Perhaps to glide more comfortably as they waved to the paparazzi?

Elizabeth Taylor & Richard Burton

Date: March 1964 – 1974, 1975 – 1976

Status: Divorced

Their love story had the makings of a Hollywood movie. Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were married and divorced twice, and their union was probably the most notorious and dramatic of the 20th century.

Elizabeth wore a cheerful yellow chiffon dress and a very petite bouquet of yellow freesia during her first wedding in 1964.

Their turbulent relationship kept them in the papers, and they divorced in 1974 and remarried in 1975, only to split again a year later. Guess they couldn’t make up their minds!

Frank Sinatra & Ava Gardner

Date: November 7, 1951

Status: Divorced

Can anyone ever forget the 1951 love affair aka ‘match made in gossip-column heaven’ between the crooner and the actress?

Rumours tell that Gardner seduced Sinatra while he’s still married to his first wife, Nancy Barbato, and the press branded her as a scandalous homewrecker.

Days after Frank and Nancy’s divorce came, Frank and Ava got married at a friend’s home in Philadelphia.

The two got married at a time when the actress’s career was in full take off, while Sinatra’s was dry as a desert. This bruised his ego, so Frank Sinatra would often provoke fights. He was jealous of her leading men. She flipped if she saw him flirt. In short, it was again a happy year for the press.

Ava Gardner wed Frank Sinatra in a halter neck wedding dress with a sheer shawl.

Elizabeth Taylor & Conrad Hilton

Date: May 6, 1950 – January 29, 1951

Status: Divorced

Another match made in Hollywood heaven that didn’t last. It kept the tabloids happy though!

Movie star Elizabeth Taylor and hotel magnate Conrad ‘Nicky’ Hilton tied the knot on May 6, 1950 in a lavish ceremony that was the first, and perhaps the most traditional, of the starlet’s eight weddings to seven husbands (she married Richard Burton twice).

Taylor was only 18 when she said ‘I do’ to 24-year-old Hilton, but after only 205 days of marriage – three months of which were spent cruising Europe on their honeymoon – it was obvious that their union lacked wedded bliss. In the divorce proceedings, Taylor charged Hilton with ‘extreme mental cruelty’, telling the court that he had been ‘indifferent to me and used abusive language’. While Taylor later admitted to LIFE magazine that her vision of marriage back then was ‘very naive’, she refused Hilton’s alimony and instead quickly moved on, putting her shortest marriage behind her.

The simple, but elegant garment created by Hollywood costume designer Helen Rose for the then 18-year-old Taylor is an oyster shell-coloured, floor-length satin gown with a fine silk gauze off-the-shoulder illusion neckline. Oh, classy! The dress, which was a gift from MGM film studios, has a top estimate of 50,000 pounds ($75,300) and now was auctioned May 28, 2013.

Royalty

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle

Date: May 19, 2018

Status: Still Together

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s love story began due to a blind date set by their mutual friend. Some say it was Violet von Westenholz, others say it was Mischa Nonoo. Regardless, having no deep knowledge about the royal family, Meghan’s first question to the friend was, ‘Is he nice?’ Because she believed that if he isn’t, the blind date would make no sense at all.

Fast forward. After their first meeting, they both had the urge to meet each other again. They decided to meet again the day after, then the rest is history.

They got married in 2018 and just recently, May 6, 2019, their first child was born. He was named Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and he’s the 7th in the line of succession to the British throne.

Prince William & Kate Middleton

Date: April 29, 2011

Status: Still Together

Kate Middleton caught Prince Harry’s attention during a university fashion show when they were both still studying at St. Andrews University. They were friends even before but that day, seeing Kate being confident on the catwalk, he felt something else. He even whispered to his friend that she’s hot. Their relationship was confirmed in 2014 when they were spotted skiing together.

In 2005, they graduated from college and pursued different paths. It had been difficult for them, especially with the presence of intense media attention, so they split up in 2007. But later that year, they became together again.

Their royal wedding occurred in 2011. And as of now, they have 3 children.

Prince Charles & Lady Diana

Date: July 29, 1981

Status: Divorced

Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer were married at St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, England. As you could expect, royal families from all over the world, state heads and notable figures graced the event, and time stopped as the public’s eyes were glued to the fairytale wedding. It was watched by an estimated global TV audience of 750 million.

Lady Diana arrived at the cathedral with her father, John Spencer, 8th Earl Spencer in a Glass Coach and was escorted by six mounted Metropolitan Police Officers.

The bride’s dress was made of ivory silk taffeta decorated with lace, hand embroidery, some sequins and exactly 10,000 pearls. The train measured up to 25 feet made of ivory taffeta and antique lace. It was designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel and valued at £9000 (£30,809 as of 2015). She also wore the Spencer family’s heirloom tiara.

Charles wore his full dress naval commander uniform.

During the exchange of vows, the couple made errors as Diana changed the order of Charles’s name to ‘Philip Charles Arthur George’ instead of the correct ‘Charles Philip Arthur George’. Charles also said he would offer her ‘thy goods’ instead of ‘my worldly goods’. Diana missed saying the promise to obey him as part of the traditional vows.

The couple and 120 guests went to Buckingham Palace for a wedding breakfast after the ceremony. Diana and Charles made a traditional appearance on a balcony of Buckingham Palace at exactly 13:10 BST, and delighted the crowd when they kissed.

The couple had 27 wedding cakes. 

After 11 years, the couple separated and they divorced in 1996.

Grace Kelly & Prince Rainier III

Date: April 18, 1956 – September 14, 1982

The Hollywood beauty met Rainier during the Cannes Film Festival and eight months later, the couple were engaged. The lovebirds tied the knot on 19 April, 1956, in Monte Carlo, in a church ceremony and a civil ceremony the day before, as was customary in Monaco.

Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III knelt and exchanged rings during their wedding at Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco.

The bride’s wedding gown was a gift from the MGM film studios and featured a high collar, long sleeves, a fitted bodice and voluminous skirt, and was made of silk taffeta, tulle and 125-year-old Brussels rose point lace.

Hollywood star Grace Kelly arrived at Saint Nicholas Cathedral for her wedding to Prince Rainier III in 1956, and was accompanied by her six bridesmaids in yellow silk organdie dresses. Among them was her sister Peggy, who acted as matron of honour.

The newlyweds Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier walked down the steps of Saint Nicholas Cathedral, flanked by a military guard, after their wedding. She was thereafter known as Princess Grace.

The royal newlyweds were driven through the streets of Monte Carlo in an open-top Rolls Royce convertible car following their wedding and waved to the thousands of well-wishers around them.

Prince Rainier III and Princess Grace enjoyed their wedding luncheon at the Palace’s Court of Honour attended by 700 guests, and later cut their six-tier wedding cake using the prince’s sword!

Lieutenant Philip Mountbatten & Queen Elizabeth II

Date: November 20, 1947

Status: Still Together

Princess Elizabeth and Philip were married at Westminster Abbey.

The wedding ceremony was officiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Geoffrey Fisher, and the Archbishop of York, Cyril Garbett. The wedding was recorded and aired by BBC Radio to 200 million people all over the world. Elizabeth and Philip proceeded to Buckingham Palace, where a breakfast was held at the Ball Supper Room. The couple received over 2,500 wedding presents from around the world and around 10,000 telegrams of congratulations!

On the morning of her wedding, as Princess Elizabeth was getting dressed and preparing, her tiara snapped and was fixed just in time.

The bride’s gown material was purchased using ration coupons and was designed by Norman Hartnell. Embroidered with soft, floating fabrics, particularly tulle and chiffon, and with plain, lustrous silks, the dress was made of soft white satin, with a high neckline, tailored bodice and a short train. The dress, without straps and with long sleeves, provided a fit and flare silhouette. Princess Elizabeth did her own make-up.

Upon their marriage, Elizabeth took the title of her husband and became Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh. They departed for their honeymoon in Broadlands in Hampshire, home of Philip’s uncle, Earl Mountbatten.

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth

Date: December 23, 2018

Status: Still Together

The relationship of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth began in 2008 to 2009, when they were in the midst of shooting for the movie adaptation of The Last Song, a book by Nicholas Sparks. About 3 years of dating, in 2012, they got engaged. Miley was 19 then and Liam was 22. However, in 2013, rumours about their break up spread alongside the release of Miley’s album, Bangerz. A few months after, the rumours were confirmed to be true.

She dated Patrick Schwarzenneger eventually, but it didn’t last. She also faced sexuality issues and was rumoured to be dating Stella Maxwell in 2015. There were a lot of issues where Miley got involved during those times, and it’s very evident on the changes on her image, her songs, and so on.

But lo and behold, in 2016, Miley and Liam were spotted together again at a music festival and people noticed that Miley was wearing the engagement ring again.

In 2017, she released her album Malibu, which was dedicated to Liam.

Yet another fairytale wedding. Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey got married at the Riverbend Church in Austin, Texas with over 350 guests, including Jessica’s sister, Ashlee and Nick’s 98 Degrees band members, Drew Lachey and Justin Jeffries.

Nick wore a black Hugo Boss tux with a white silk tie. The couple looked fab and gorgeous together.

The church was surrounded with about ten thousand pale pink roses, a dream of Jessica Simpson since she was a little girl. You could say it was a romantic setting, especially with dazzling candles. The reception at the Barton Creek Resort and Spa was filled with roses as well.

The wedding cake was Victorian-inspired five-tier cake with hundreds of handmade edible flowers, layers of velvet cake and white butter cream icing.

Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale

Date: September 14, 2002

Status: Divorced

Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale dated for six transcontinental-hopping years before Rossdale finally popped the question on New Year’s Day in 2002.

On September 14th of that same year, modern music’s most famous front-woman and her British beau exchanged vows during a traditional Anglican service at St. Paul’s Covent Garden in London. The bride arrived an hour late for the ceremony, but for the groom she was well worth the wait.

Although known for her skin-baring outfits on stage, Stefani wore a custom-made pink and white silk faille Christian Dior gown complete with an antique lace veil designed by her friend, John Galliano. Her eight attendants wore bias-cut silk dresses from the Christian Dior Bridal Collection.

Two weeks after their London nuptials, the couple took the plunge all over again, hosting a vow-renewal ceremony in L.A. for friends like Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston and Ben Stiller. Guests were instructed to ‘dress romantic’ for the occasion, which was designed by planner, Mindy Weiss. The ‘I dos’ were followed by dinner and dancing.

For the follow-up ceremony in Los Angeles, Stefani wore the same gown but switched up her accessories, choosing a Georgian pendant of pink tourmaline, peridot and diamonds from Neil Lane Jewellery.

Unfortunately, the couple separated but Gwen has found love again with Blake Sheldon.

Kurt Cobain & Courtney Love

Date: February 24, 1992

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were married on a cliff overlooking Waikiki Beach on the island of O’aho in Hawaii with a perfect sunset background. Kurt wore his pyjamas with a woven Guatemalan purse while Courtney wore an old dress that once belonged to Seattle actress Frances Farmer. There were only eight people in attendance (no family members) as Kurt did not want a big ceremony. His best friend Krist Novoselic and his wife Shelli did not come to the ceremony because Krist thought Kurt was still using heroin heavily and he believed Courtney had a bad influence on him.

Dave Grohl did attend the wedding and even posed for an extremely awkward photo holding the bride’s hand. Sadly, the Cobain’s would only be married for a little over two years before Kurt died on April 8, 1994.

Madonna & Sean Penn

Date: August 16, 1985 – September 14, 1989

Status: DIivorced

Remember when Madonna dedicated her 1986 album True Blue to Penn? In the dedication, she wrote, “This is dedicated to my husband, the coolest guy in the universe.”

Madonna wore a strapless boned bodice with a sweetheart neckline and a tulle embellished with a band of pink metallic mesh. It was layered over handmade sombre blossoms with gold bullion trimming, gold tone beadwork and simulated pearls.

Marlene Stewart designed costumes for Madonna in the 1980s. Accompanied by a black bowler hat with tulle veil and imitation pearl details, and custom wedding shoes worn with the gown. The shoes are ivory silk brocade embellished with gold and silver bullion foliate appliqué, imitation pearls, iridescent glass teardrops, tulle, and a petal pink rose bud designed by Di Fabrizio of Los Angeles. It’s expected to sell for $40,000 to $60,000 (if you’re in the market!).

The two divorced in 1989. You can totally blame the bowler veil. But shucks, it’s Madonna. She can get away with anything!

While in Hawaii, Sharon did not dress for a beach wedding but instead donned a high neck traditional lace wedding dress.

Despite being called the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy, meanwhile, was dressed in an all-white suit, including a bow tie, and also wore a traditional Hawaiian lei around his neck.

While the now 65-year-old is known for his long black hair, for his wedding his hair was blond, long and full of volume.

Johnny Cash & June Carter

Date: March 1, 1968

Johnny and June got married in a low-key ceremony at Franklin, Kentucky. June wore short lace dress with blue flowers in her hair. It was a very simple wedding, but so full of love and passion.

Johnny proposed to June on stage during a performance at the London Ice House, a hockey arena in Ontario, Canada. Johnny stopped the show and said, “Will you marry me?” on the microphone. June responded with, “Go on, sing another, sing another.” He replied, “I’m not gonna sing until you answer me – will you marry me?” to which she again responded, “Sing a song, John, sing a song,” turning her back to him and trying to get the band to pick up playing again. The repartee continued until she finally answered him, “Yes.” They got married a week later.

When June died in 2003, Johnny had to be helped from his wheelchair to see his wife’s face for the last time. It was obvious that he was in so much pain. Johnny died less than four months afterwards and they were buried next to each other at Henderson Memory Gardens.

The well-known song Ring of Fire was co-written by June in 1963 and probably contributed to the reason they felt in love. But Flesh and Blood, a 1970 single featured in the Gregory Peck film I Walk the Line, is a lesser known (and very sweet) song Johnny Cash wrote about his love for June.

Elvis & Priscilla Presley

Date: May 1, 1967

Status: Divorced

Shortly before Christmas in 1966, Elvis had proposed to Priscilla with a three-carat diamond. They got married at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas.

The wedding featured very few guests and was all over within only eight minutes!

It was followed by a quick press conference and a jaw-dropping $10,000 breakfast reception, complete with roast-suckling pig, oysters rockefeller, lobster, champagne and Southern fried chicken. It was attended by their friends, family, and business associates from MGM, RCA, and the William Morris Agency.

The couple’s six-tier yellow sponge wedding cake cost about $3,200 ($22,000 in today’s dollars), which was more than the price tag of an average Chevrolet in 1967. The cake was described with each layer filled twice with apricot marmalade and a kirsch- (liqueur) flavoured Bavarian cream then glazed with fondant icing and decorated with royal icing and marzipan roses. 

Following the reception, Elvis and Priscilla boarded a private jet and enjoyed a short honeymoon in Palm Springs. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house has since been turned into an Elvis museum, which was said to be on sale at $9.5 million.

Several years later, Elvis and Priscilla renewed their vows in Hawaii in a ceremony that was an almost scene-for-scene recreation of the wedding in his movie Blue Hawaii.

Neither set of vows lasted as they divorced in 1973.

Although there were weddings that ended in a divorce, there were some that lasted until death parted them. So don’t lose hope!
