Oh, I love a good showbiz wedding. The ostentatious dresses, the massive cake, the Photoshopped wedding pictures… I LOVE IT ALL.
So, without further ado, I bring you the best celebrity weddings of 2014 so far.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – 24th May, Florence, Italy

Andrea Bocelli sang the Kardashian down the aisle, and she married her beau and father of her baby in front of a wall of flowers in Florence. Y’know, the usual. Step-dad Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle, and all four of her sisters (Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie) served as bridesmaids, with one-year-old North as her flower girl. Her dress was custom-made by Givenchy (sigh) and the wedding day was the culmination of a week-long celebration for the Kardashians, who were in Paris a few days before the Big Day (Kim even had a hen party, wearing a custom Balmain dress, in Paris. LOVE). The couple had their rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles (as you do), and Kanye paid a cool $1m for Lana del Ray to perform for his bride-to-be. The night before my wedding I was sat in a pub drinking gin arguing with my mother-in-law, and avoiding the paralytic girlfriend of the best man. Palace of Versailles it was NOT.
It was extravagant, and a lot of Twitter trolls have slated it, but if they want to spend millions on their wedding day then so be it. Considering Kim is set to make $200m from that God-awful iPhone game she launched earlier this year, then she’s got to have something to spend her fortune on. But Kim, if you’ve got a spare million, could you just bung it in an envelope and send it to me? ta chuck.
Cheryl Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini – July 7, Mustique

The Geordie singer shocked her fans (and probably ex-husband Ashley Cole) by marrying her model boyfriend after only three months together in July this year. After keeping shtum for over a week, she broke the news on Instagram to “stop speculation” (to be honest, I didn’t even know there was any “speculation”).
This is how you “stop speculation”, apparently. BUT LOOK AT THAT ROCK. Photo: itv.com
The couple had a bash in London to celebrate with family and friends, as they only had four guests at their luxury island wedding (and I don’t think Simon Cowell was one of those guests…). Everyone has their opinion on marriage, especially on those who wed really quickly after meeting. But, if you think he/she’s The One, then what’s stopping you? I think it’s admirable they’ve made the commitment so quickly. And, it goes to show that even a cheating scumbag can’t destroy your outlook on love. Go Chezza!
Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson - July 5, Montecito, California

Another woman proving that a divorce doesn’t mean you can’t find happiness. In this case, she found it with an ex-NFL player and had two babies with him. So, screw you divorce. In a custom Carolina Herrera gown, she said “I do” in front of 275 guests with sister Ashlee as bridesmaid and daughter Maxwell as flower girl. Gotta love these celebs making weddings a family affair! Shortly after their Big Day, they shared this wedding video with People.com (have a gander if you want some wedding inspo).
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt – 23rd August, south of France

In a non-denominational ceremony at their MASSIVE French chateau, the biggest power couple in Hollywood got hitched after a decade together. A spokesman for the couple briefly confirmed the wedding but offered no more details (sob). But Angelina’s dad has offered his congrats, as well as other celebs, so we can all take that as actual officialness (apparently). It was ‘breaking news’ on Sky News, and once that happens you know the world has gone mad. The couple made sure their six kids were fully involved in their Big Day, and Angelina wore a vintage-esque white lace dress with matching veil (according to reports). Brad also gifted his bride with a gold locket containing a photo of her late mother inside it *cue sobbing*. With only 22 guests at their nuptials, it was a small but perfectly formed wedding. And, with their own vineyard at their chateau, you can only IMAGINE how much wine was there (I am dreaming). Now, I’m going to sit on my laptop and wait patiently for official wedding photos…
