The Biggest Celebrity Destination Weddings Ever

When you can stretch your wedding budget into a few million dollars, you’ll certainly not have any dearth of ideas. So don’t be surprised seeing celebrities making a big deal of the formal “I do’s” in exotic, picturesque landscapes, or amidst lofty, architectural wonders like villas, castles, and halls; wines and champagnes overflowing and every little nook and corner screaming romance. Of course, their big-budget weddings serve as inspiration to the rest of the world, and if you decide to walk down the aisle similarly- here are some of the lavish, big-budget, high-end destination weddings of celebs to bowl you over.

David Beckham and Victoria Beckham – Dublin

The Beckhams’ made their 20th wedding anniversary a larger-than-life event in 2019. That made most of us reminiscent of the ‘epic ceremony’ they observed in the 15th-century Irish castle that cost them about $800,000 then. The Robin Hood color scheme truly stood out with mostly shades of forest green, burgundy, and rich purple; the tiara encrusted in gold and diamonds, matched with the oversized thrones and of course, the splendid fireworks to wrap up the gala event.

Opulent in every sense, the Luttrellstown Castle in the outskirts of Dublin looked it’s very best that day. Even now, the castle, which is now a very popular resort, is available for weddings.

George Clooney and Amal Clooney – Venice

Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor got hitched to the reputed human rights lawyer, a true beauty indeed, in 2014. George and Amal’s choice of venue was the biggest hit and that made the wedding even more special. The event was a four-day celebration, which first kicked off with the knot-tying ceremony at Venice. Then they stopped at the palazzo Ca’Farsetti for about 10 minutes to complete the civil ceremony, followed by the visit to the very luxurious Aman Canal Grande via a water taxi to head to the reception.

This was the only seven-star hotel in the city that got unveiled a year back. However, the original property was built in the 16th century, which largely took the guests’ attention when they viewed the ceiling frescoes made by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo or the Grand Canal and two private gardens.

Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman – Big Sur

Another notable outdoor wedding venue was added to the Holly list when the famous couple exchanged wedding vows at Big Sur, in the very ‘picturesque’ Ventana. The grand wedding was scheduled during sunset, right in front of the breathtaking backdrop of the mountains that were surrounded by Californian redwoods and the majestic waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Visitors were captivated by the ocean views, the gallery, or when relaxing amidst the cozy fire pits, choosing dine-in options from coastal cuisines or for quick dips in Japanese hit baths or even swimming in the infinity pool. Even the rooms reflected the unforgettable beauty of the place, decked up with rustic furnishings. What’s even better is that the hotel is eco-friendly and has committed to resorting to only sustainable initiatives.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas – Jodhpur

From Jodhpur to North Carolina, Nick and Priyanka ensured their wedding would be the best thing of 2018 – including pre-rituals, ceremonies, and receptions. The primary event was organized at the Umaid Bhawan Palace, which belonged to the former royal family of Jodhpur and had a plush hotel. The event was spread for three days at a stretch and all the rituals of both Hindu and Christian marriage ceremonies were held that blended Indian and American cultures perfectly.

The palace and its splendor were there for all to see. Set at the highest point of the city, guests had a great time looking at the ‘historic Blue City’. A total of 347 Art Deco-style rooms are present, including the throne chamber and the museum, spa, library, and indoor pool. Apart from the palace, guests also had the option of exploring dunes or even strolling along the 26 acres of gardens.

Celebrities love destination weddings, and for a matter of fact- the world does too. While affordability is truly a factor; let’s not deny we stay in awe of all such celebrations. The above-mentioned celebs are only a few among the many who made the world take note of them. But the list will keep expanding with time.
