Destination weddings are a popular choice for the world’s celebrity elite. But even with the whole world at their fingertips, each couple finds a way for their personal style to shine through. Here are a few of our favorite A-list nuptials from across the globe.
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt - Provence, France
After 10 years and 6 children together, Brad and Angelina finally tied the knot at the family’s privately owned 17th-century Chateau Miraval in Correns, France. The ceremony was a family affair; the 20 assembled guests hummed “Here Comes the Bride” as Jolie’s two eldest sons escorted her down the aisle. Her veil featured stitched drawings and doodles by each of their children. The kids even wrote the couple’s vows!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West - Florence, Italy
Kim and Kanye tied the knot in their usual opulent style. The festivities included a pre-wedding party at Versaille featuring 600 guests and a private concert by Lana Del Ray. The ceremony was held in Florence, Italy the next day at Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century fortress originally commissioned by the powerful Medici family. The bride walked down the aisle to world-famous Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli’s “Ave Maria” wearing Givenchy Haute Couture, and was accompanied by her stepfather, Bruce Jenner.
Matt Damon and Luciana Barrosso - St. Lucia
When Matt Damon married Lucianna Barrosso at city hall in 2005, they agreed that they’d one day throw a lavish celebration. 10 years later they rented out the Sugar Beach Resort in St. Lucia to renew their vows in front of 50 of their closest friends and family. Throughout the seaside ceremony the couple shared details of their love story with guests, and vowed to keep their senses of humor.
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner - Turks and Caicos
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner wed in a tiny, top-secret ceremony performed by Jen’s Alias costar, Victor Garber. The couple held the sunset nuptials on the beach at the luxurious Parrot Cay Resort. The bride, then 4 months pregnant, wore an empire waist Vera Wang gown with a green sash.
Megan Fox and Austin Green - Kona, Hawaii
Celebrity starlet Megan Fox married her longtime boyfriend Austin Green on a secluded beach in Hawaii. The intimate ceremony was performed by a local kahuna, a Hawaiian priest, and witnessed only by Green’s 8-year-old son. The barefoot bride wore a flowing, strapless Armani gown with a 16-foot train.
So what’s your celebrity destination wedding style? Are you an Angelina? Or does the Kardashian extravaganza speak to your inner diva? Do you dream of Megan Fox’s barefoot on the beach ceremony?
