If there’s one thing the public loves, it’s a celebrity wedding. From the design of the dress to the flowers decorating the venue, everyone loves to share the moment as if they were there too. Below are some of the most extravagant weddings from 2018.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – Tying the knot on Saturday 19th May 2018, there was a global audience with millions of people tuning in to watch this pair unite. Their fairytale wedding took place in St John’s Chapel in Windsor Castle and the marriage was solemnized by the Archbishop of Canterbury. They were accompanied by an orchestra made up of instrumentalists from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Philharmonia. The newly married couple left the chapel and stood under a stunning floral arch, before getting into the carriage for their procession around Windsor.
The dress, which after Kate and Will’s wedding was a huge point of excitement building up to the wedding, is estimated to have cost $135,000, whereas the ceremony and reception are deemed to have cost nearly $3.5 million- and the wedding cake valued at over $7000. No-one expected any less for such a huge occasion, but it’s fair to say that this wedding secures the title of extravagant.
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook – This couple chose a horse ranch near San Diego for their wedding. The dress was incredible, with reports of it taking 400 hours to make, taking 10 seamstresses to perfect it. The reception was also just as impressive, with a 100 foot-long canopy of lights to welcome the guests along with a two-storey tent flown in from Germany with a series of specialised areas within. There was a beer and wine room, a photo booth, an ice luge, and cigar rollers on hand. Guests also had the chance to have a foot massage during the night and to have their shoes shined. Not only that, but there was also stilt walkers, magicians, a fire breather and acrobatics along with ariel acts. With no confirmation of the costs of this wedding, it’s impossible to argue with all the entertainment and decor that this wedding was more than extravagant.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas – Approaching their wedding day slightly differently, this pair extended the normal day into a lavish three-day celebration to honors both families’ beliefs. They had two ceremonies taking place over a weekend in the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace; on Saturday a Christian ceremony, Sunday a Hindu ceremony. On Saturday, Priyanka wore an incredible dress decorated with over two million mothers of pearl sequins along with a 75-foot long veil. On Sunday, the couple rode on the back of an elephant and had a 40-foot long floral canopy. Both days were both beautiful and incredibly extravagant, exactly as expected.
These weddings are some amongst many incredible weddings that took place in 2018 and will be remembered for a long time.
