Angelababy and Huang Xiaoming’s good deeds
Easily the wedding of the year (or of the decade), the Chinese celebrity couple spared no expense in having their dream celebration. The doting Xiaoming splurged so his princess bride could don two Chaumet tiaras (including an antique crown for the photo shoot), as well as have her fairytale celebrations. 

What stood out: The couple’s wedding favours, which were baked by disabled people who were trained from a non-profit centre in Nanyang. The big-hearted groom also surprised his bride by inviting children from various charities, as well as set up a foundation in his bride’s name.

 

Leo Ku’s drawings and outfits
Following the popular Mandopop and Cantopop singer’s wedding in Vegas, Leo and Lorraine Chan (his girlfriend and assistant of 20 years) celebrated their union with a traditional banquet at the Four Seasons Hong Kong

What stood out: The couple’s retrolicious outfits (we love the matchy-matchy white outfits and Lorraine’s tea-length bell skirt!) and the lovely (and accurate) sketch Leo did of the both of them. Who knew the talented musician could draw, too?

Jennifer Aniston’s not-too-serious wedding
Jennifer and Justin Theroux surprised guests who thought they were at the couple’s sprawling mansion for Justin’s 44th birthday party. Only their close friends including Courteney Cox, Ellen Degeneres, Emily Blunt and Howard Stern, and family were present. 

What stood out: The couple’s adorable wedding cake, which featured the muppets as their cake topper.

Nicky Hilton’s old-world wedding
As befits the union of two of the world’s richest families, Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild had a wedding lavish enough to rival royalty (or more). From the venue (Kensington Palace) to the gown (Valentino), the bridal car (a Bentley) and the flowers (rows and rows of arrangements dressed up the tables), we fell in love, and hard.

What stood out: Everything, basically. 

 

Benedict Cumberbatch’s quaint, charming, quintessentially English wedding
The Sherlock star wed his lady love Sophie Hunter on the Isle of Wight in a secret ceremony while everyone else was celebrating Valentine’s Day. There was, understandably, a mix of reactions from Benedict’s fans.

What stood out: The lovely 12th century church of St. Paul, and the grand Mottistone Manor, where they had the reception after. 

Denise Keller’s breezy Bali nuptials
The former MTV VJ wed her husband in a destination ceremony by the cliff overlooking the azure Indian Ocean in Bali. More details about the story in the December 2015 issue.

What stood out: The colour palette of blush and gold, which was inspired by California’s Napa Valley where Denise’s husband proposed. It’s chic, trendy, yet classic enough to not look dated a few years down the road.

Jade Seah’s traditional yet fun wedding that included heaps of flowers
The media personality and host wed her husband in a traditional Catholic ceremony, then had an intimate lunch and dinner reception all on the same day. 

What stood out: The flowers – Fiore Dorato created a lush garden paradise for the lunch reception, which included a floral gazebo placed in the centre of the venue. They were also responsible for Jade’s dramatic cascading bouquet as well as the table floral arrangements. Plus, we heard the bride hosted her own lunch, which is rare yet refreshing.

 

“It goes to show you never can tell?!”

Calico Cooper’s father-daughter dance at the wedding
The daughter of heavy metal rockstar Alice Cooper and actor Jed Williams exchanged “I Dos” in their beautiful Hawaiian wedding. 

What stood out: The gorgeous scenery as seen from snaps of the couple’s guests, took our breaths away, but the father-daughter dance (as seen here) was the real star of the show.

Guy Ritchie’s star-studded guest list
The British director (of Sherlock Holmes and The Man From U.N.C.L.E fame) wed model Jacqui Ansley in a stunning countryside wedding that also saw a star-studded guest list (who included Jason Statham, Henry Cavill, David Beckham and Brad Pitt)

What stood out: The groom’s eclectic formal wear that was perfect for the garden reception. The guests (of course), as well as the flowers, which dressed up the arch, as well as the interior of the tents for their reception.

Murad Osmann and Nataly Zakharova’s paradise-like wedding
The Russian couple who gained Internet fame thanks to Murad’s #followmeto photo series had a lavish and whimsical celebration that included giant clouds and balloons, and animal sculptures, which were literally larger-than-life.

What stood out: The decorations by Lid’s Events House and their unforgettable wedding picture.

Beatrice Borromeo’s pink gowns
The Italian heiress married Grace Kelly’s grandson, Pierre Casiraghi (whose mother is Princess Caroline of Monaco) in a relatively understated wedding (by royal and Monegasque standards). They first wed in a civil ceremony in July 2015 before having a second (religious) celebration a week later in the bride’s country of Italy.

What stood out: Beatrice’s two pink Valentino gowns during her civil ceremony, which caught everyone’s attention.

 

Mayday’s Masa’s bridal outfits
The Taiwanese musician (and bass guitarist for Mayday) wed his wife, designer Vicky Hsieh in a romantic sunset ceremony in Santorini, Greece.

What stood out: The bride’s lovely outfit that was equal parts romantic, sophisticated, and modern.

 

Jay Chou and Hannah Quinlivan’s grand English wedding
The much-awaited wedding (Jay announced his intent to wed in 2015) took place in England’s 1,000-year-old Selby Abbey. The perfectionist groom composed his own march-in music, and was said to have delayed the ceremony for two hours until everyone got every aspect right during the rehearsals.

What stood out: The fact that the couple had their nuptials overseas in a 12th century English castle, and Quinlivan’s Tudor-styled dress.

George Young and Janet Hsieh’s wintry cold wedding with the penguins
The fun-loving, globe-trotting couple had a unique wedding by any standards. The venue: An icy white landscape at the southern end of the earth. Guests: flightless birds, and other polar creatures.

What stood out: The fun image the couple showed off on their Instagram pictures depicting their new status, plus that penguin in the foreground. We also like how George took it all in his stride, talking about the “amazing” penguin, not minding one bit that the bird stole part of the thunder from him and his lovely bride.
