Celebrity Wedding Inspiration: Three 2015 Nuptials
Maybe you don’t have quite the same budget as a celebrity, but twinkling lights, fairytale gardens, and elegant gowns aren’t just for the rich and famous. Check out these recent celebrity wedding details to get some ideas for your own big day.
Cameron Diaz & Benji Madden
The actress and Good Charlotte guitarist wed in Diaz’s Beverly Hills home earlier this year, with the ceremony being held inside and the reception and cocktail hour in the backyard’s outdoor tent, which was adorned with olive trees and candles, according to Us Weekly. Cameron walked down the aisle to “Stardust” by Nat King Cole and surprise performances by Ryan Adams and Lionel Richie were highlights of the reception (Nicole Richie is Cameron’s new sister-in-law, who’s married to Benji’s brother Joel). Cameron changed out of her wedding gown before the cake was cut to show off a second white dress with beading, sequins, and short sleeves. “It was a big wedding, but they still managed to make it feel very personal. Only their families and very special friends attended,” a source told People Magazine. “It all felt very down-to-earth and sweet.”
Ian Somerhalder & Nikki Reed
With delicate lace detailing, long sleeves, and a flowing train, the Twilight actress was the epitome of elegance this spring in Santa Monica as she wed The Vampire Diaries actor. A short video clip of their day looks like a movie trailer itself, with romantic string lights, a rustic background, and a soft breeze swimming through all the action. Claire Pettibone custom created Reed’s ethereal dress, or the “work of art,” as the bride described it. The newlyweds later honeymooned in Mexico.
Benedict Cumberbatch & Sophie Hunter
On Valentine’s Day this year, the Sherlock Holmes star married Hunter, an English theater and opera director, who wore both an exquisite Valentino dress and an adorable baby bump. The dress, which featured an empire waist to glide over the expectant belly, took three months to complete, Vogue reports. With silvery-grey lace fabric, a high Victorian neckline, and long sleeves, this one-of-a-kind couture gown was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli in collaboration with Hunter herself. “From the directorial point of view, I see opera in it, I see art, I see theater,” she said. “There’s a narrative of the individual and the occasion and the setting that is utterly unique.” The ceremony was held on the Isle of Wight in England at St. Paul’s Church, followed by a reception at Mottistone Manor, an idyllic estate owned by relatives of the bride.
