Our favourite celebrities are no strangers to a romantic destination wedding and an even more extravagant honeymoon. While us mere mortals aren’t lucky enough to score an invite, we can certainly take a trip to explore these magical destinations for ourselves.
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski – Lake Como, Italy
Not many of us will be privileged enough to be invited round for tea at George Clooney’s Lake Como villa, let alone get married there! Emily Blunt and John Krasinski tied the knot under the glorious Italian sunshine with celebrity guests in attendance and a three-carat diamond and platinum ring. The outdoor wedding was a perfect blend of simplicity and glamour.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin – Venice, Italy
Arriving in style via taxi boat, Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney and a roster of high-profile guests made their way to the stunning Aman Hotel in Venice where the A-list couple wed underneath the Venetian sunshine. The wedding venue was decorated with white lilies and carnations and guests were escorted to the ceremony via gondolas! The city of Venice oozes romance and culture – definitely one of the top wedding destinations in Europe.
Billie Faiers & Greg Shepherd – The Maldives
This stunning reality TV pair invited us all to spectate at their fairytale Maldives wedding – well not literally, but we can dream, right? In the 90-minute ITVBe special we watched as the couple said ‘I do’ in front of 95 guests at their magical beach wedding that featured palm leaves, fairy lights and lots of flowers. From the sparkling blue sea and soft white sand, to overwater bungalows, the Maldives is the perfect destination to tie the knot.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West – Florence, Italy
For a couple that go OTT in every aspect of their lives, it came as no surprise that their wedding would bring the same energy! Kanye rented out the entire San Francisco AT&T Park for the proposal, and the wedding weekend saw festivities take place in two different cities. Kim and Kanye kicked off with a party in Paris before flying all of their guests to the majestic city of Florence where the ceremony took place at the 16th-century Fort di Belvedere. They exchanged vows against a beautiful 20-foot flower wall backdrop in front of many of their A-list friends and family.
Beyoncé & Jay Z – New York
The power couple tied the knot in secret at Jay Z’s 13,500 square foot New York penthouse in the Tribeca neighbourhood. They kept it low-key with a guestlist of only 40 of their closest family and friends. Although intimate, the gorgeous couple spared no expense in creating a wedding fit for the king and queen of hip hop. Jay Z’s indoor gym was transformed into Queen Bey’s dressing room and 70,000 orchids were flown in from Thailand for the special day – talk about a royal wedding!
Destination wedding or not, these dreamy locations make for amazing escapes, so instead of letting out a long sigh in awe of these lucky celebs, plan a trip to one of these destinations to experience them for yourself!
