Weddings that WOWed us (and the world) in 2014
2014 was a great year for wonderful celebrity weddings. We saw showbiz, we saw secretive (eventually) and we saw glamorous. Celebrity weddings in 2014 saw massive exposure (as always) and spectacular sights. In today’s blog post – we take a look at the finest celebrity weddings of 2014.
Top 3 Celebrity weddings in 2014
1. George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
It was always going to be a huge secret, but that didn’t stop the world eagerly awaiting details on the eternal bachelor and his beautiful Human Rights lawyer bride. As at most celebrity weddings – everyone wanted to know about the dress. And, needless to say, no one was disappointed. US Vogue published the first image of Amal in her Oscar De La Renta gown and hearts stopped – Amal chose ivory tulle appliquéd with fourteen yards of Chantilly lace and it was magnificent.
The wedding itself was (as expected) a huge secret. But we do know this; the wedding took place in Italy at the seven star Aman Canal Grande hotel. A-list guests included Matt Damon, Anna Wintour, Bill Murray, Emily Blunt, Bono and Cindy Crawford.
2. Brad Pit and Angelina Jolie
The world watched in anticipation as the long awaited and greatly anticipated Hollywood power couple finally said “I do.” The pair tied the knot in their French home Château Miraval in August 2014. Having always been one to do things her own way, we weren’t surprised to see Jolie’s veil covered with artwork from the couple’s 6 children – beautiful and meaningful. Her dress was designed by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace. The wedding incorporated the children wholly into their day, with Jolie recently admitting that the couple had married in America legally quite some time ago. Of course, nothing would have hindered the media interest in this Hollywood royalty’s big day.
3. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian
The West-Kardashian wedding was arguably theeee celebrity wedding of the year. The couple tied the knot at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, back in May 2014, and viewers got a look at the nuptials during the wedding-themed season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The beautiful bride wore a Givenchy Haute Couture gown and sisters Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner were of course, beautiful bridesmaids. We all knew that the lavish affair was going to be of public interest but perhaps we wouldn’t have all guessed that one snap for the wedding would gain a staggering 2.4 million likes on Instagram – making it the most liked image on the social media app in 2014 and the most liked image since Instagram launched 4 years ago. In addition, the couple’s wedding snap appeared on the front page of US Vogue, it was official – the Kimye brand was well and truly established in 2014.
