1. Cara Delahoyde & Nathan Massey
2016 Love Island winners Cara Delahoyde and Nathan Massey tied the knot in June 2019 after meeting on the show three years previously. They said ‘I do’ in front of 120 of their closest friends and family at Preston Court Barn in Canterbury.
The couple went for a purple colour scheme and camped in tipis with their friends after the celebrations. They went to bed at 5am before making sausage and bacon rolls on a barbecue the following morning.
Nathan told OK! Magazine: “It went perfectly. It was one of the best days of my life. I lost my voice! Everyone has said it’s the best wedding they’ve ever been to.”
The pair, who got engaged last year at the Love Island villa they met in, were joined by fellow Islanders Rykard Jenkins and Scott Thomas, as well as TOWIE stars Tommy Mallet and Georgia Kousoulou. Their 17-month-old son Freddie was also with them to share the joy of their big day.

Countdown star Rachel Riley married her ballroom-dancing beau, Pasha Kovalev, in a secret Las Vegas wedding in June. Rachel, 33, took to Instagram to share her happy news. She wrote: “Introducing the new Mr and Mrs Kovalev… We both said yes!”

Rachel donned a beautiful short wedding dress on her big day, which featured a flattering V-neck and red embroidery. If anyone could pull off a coloured wedding dress, it was always going to be her!

His new wife looked stunning in a bohemian wedding dress and flower crown, and the pair enjoyed funfair rides, food trucks, a G&T bar and frozen daiquiris. They also revealed that their wedding DJ was so “lit” he kept everyone dancing until 1am!
Reflecting on his big day, Joe said: “It’s true when people say your wedding day goes by in a flash. We had the best day ever with our close family and friends. The venue was perfect, we were blessed with sunshine.”

4. Joe Jonas & Sophie Turner
Almost two years after getting engaged, Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner and singer Joe Jonas tied the knot in an intimate ceremony at Le Chateau de Tourreau in Sarrians, France. Sophie’s co-star Maisie Williams was Maid of Honour, and Sophie finally got to wear the big white dress she’d been dreaming of.
It is reported that white elegant flowers and glass candles adorned the aisles at the ceremony site – we can only imagine how spectacular the wedding décor was!
Their lavish wedding followed a secret ceremony in Las Vegas back in April, when the pair headed to A Little White Wedding Chapel after Joe performed at the Billboard Music Awards with his brothers.
The ceremony, which was streamed live on Instagram by musician Diplo, was officiated by an Elvis impersonator. Other stars attendance included musician Khalid and Priyanka Chopra.

5. Idris Elba & Sabrina Dhowre
In April 2019, Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre hosted a thrilling three-day extravaganza in Marrakesh and tied the knot in front of 200 of their good friends and family. Since Sabrina’s family are from east Africa and Idris’s are from the west, Marrakesh was chosen as they “thought it’d be fun” to meet somewhere in between.
The beautiful pair revealed their wedding photographs in Vogue. Sabrina was seen wearing a Vera Wang gown (which was just one of three wedding dresses she wore during the day) while Idris donned an Ozwald Boateng suit. Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury was put in charge of Sabrina’s wedding day makeup look.

It is reported that the dance floor at their wedding was full all night long, with guests downing Champagne and shots of tequila. Celebrity guests Christian Louboutin and Maya Jama reportedly grabbed the bride for a dance-off when Beyonce was played. Sounds like the party of the year!

Their wedding breakfast had a “Tuscany-Italian vibe”, with family-style pasta, big, long tables and lots of red wine. The pair also created their very own signature cocktail for the day.
