Here are the most coveted celebrity wedding destinations so that you can devise a fairytale wedding of your own if you are willing to splurge.
George Clooney & Amal Alamuddin in Venice, Italy
The world’s most eligible bachelor has finally tied the knot. George Clooney married Amal Alamuddin at Hotel Aman, a historic hotel on Venice’s iconic Canal Grande
The Wedding Venue: Aman Canal Grande
Address: Calle Tiepolo 1364, 30125 Venezia, Italy
George and Amal chose to have their celebrations before they signed the papers to be officially wed. Guests included Cindy Crawford, Bill Murray, Emily Blunt and Matt Damon, U2 lead singer Bono and US Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour.
And they couldn’t have chosen a better venue, Venice’s only ‘seven star’ hotel, the super swanky Aman Canal Grande.
Located on the Grand Canal and offering glorious views across the city, the hotel has rooms bedecked with historic frescoes and hallways that ooze opulence with hand-crafted chandeliers made on the nearby island of Murano.
Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt in Provence, France
Hollywood’s Hottest power couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, finally made their almost-decade union official, as they exchanged vows in a small chapel of the Chateau Miraval.
The Wedding Venue: Chateau Miraval
Address: Miraval, 83570 Correns, France
The Chateau Miraval is a vineyard estate owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina. Back in 2008, the couple moved their family into the château and apparently haven’t looked back, spending their summers nestled in the 1000-acre estate.
Back in the 1970s, the sprawling estate was home to the jazz pianist and composer Jacques Loussier, who built a recording studio on its grounds. Since then, Pink Floyd, Sting, Sade and the Cranberries have all recorded music there. And it seems that the Pitt-Jolies have carried on the tradition.
According to the Château Miraval’s website, the couple “have given impetus to the heart of the estate as a place dedicated to the arts — music, cinema, theater, local food and fine wine.”
Even those who don’t frequently read gossip pages might recognize the Château Miraval name: it’s also home to Brangelina’s wine, the Côtes de Provence Rosé Mirava, which won plaudits last year from Wine Spectator magazine.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West in Florence, Italy
The world went abuzz when this power couple tied the knott in a stunning Italian villa in Florence, with sweeping paranomic views from its walls.

The Wedding Venue: Belmond Villa San Michele, Florence
Address: Via Doccia 4, Fiesole-Florence, 50014, Italy
“You cannot beat the ambience” at this former monastery on a cliffside amid trees and terraced gardens just outside Florence.
Suites come with “unbelievable views of the City of Lilies.” Historians attribute the villa’s facade—which dates to the fifteenth century—to Michelangelo.
Floral arrangements in large ceramic vases line the floors of corridors with arched ceilings. The terrace of the restaurant Loggia is great for dinner, as is its regional cuisine.
John Legend and Chrissy Tegen in Lake Como, Italy
The R&B singer and Sports Illustrated model said their “I Do”s at the Villa Pizzo, nestled in the Italian hillside. The bride was the muse behind Legend’s hit song, All of Me, which he performed to teary-eyed guests, who included stars like Stevie Wonder and Kanye West, at the reception in Villa Pizzo.
The Wedding Venue: Villa Pizzo
Address: Via Regina, 46/48, 22012 Cernobbio CO, Italy
Villa Pizzo is a 17th century villa with spectacular views overlooking Como Lake. The distinguished historic manor is surrounded by lush Italian gardens, which can only be visited by appointment.
The unique atmosphere of these ancient residents doesn’t have any equals: you breathe in history, the sensation of having been taken back in time while at the same time being embraced by the magic of the lake.
The scenery makes it the perfect place for the ideal wedding, the one that you’ve always dreamed of, a divine reality but an occasion that can’t be wasted.
Emily Blunt & John Krasinski in Lake Como, Italy

The Wedding Venue: Villa d’Este
Address: Piazza Trento, 5, 00019 Tivoli RM, Italy
Villa d’Este is among the most beautiful, exclusive and romantic in the world: It is not far from George Clooney’s home. In fact, George Clooney and girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis were among the guests at the outdoor ceremony.
Villa d’Este is regarded as one of the best hotels in the world. Travel & Leisure, Condé Nast Traveler and Forbes Traveler have hailed the property for its beautiful gardens, exquisite cuisine, gala celebrations, impeccable décor and extraordinary hospitality.
Sounds like a great place for the happy couple to start making babies!
Katy Perry & Russell Brand in Jaipur, India
While singer Katy Perry’s marriage to Russell Brand was short-lived, it certainly began with a memorable, exotic wedding in Jaipur, India.
There were at least five different parties — including an outdoor festival complete with gorgeously decorated tents in the Rajasthan desert resort of Aman-i-Khas — in the run-up to the big day.
Guests will go on tiger and gazelle-spotting safaris, and Brand will arrive on a prancing white horse, escorted by camels and elephants.
