Walking down the aisle, celeb style

Following from George Clooney's Hollywood style wedding in Venice last weekend, has picked out the crème de la crème of celebrity weddings – from the outrageous expense and publicity of Kimye's wedding to the more private and demure ceremonies involving Elton John/David Furnish and Brangelina.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, Venice, Italy – Hearts across the world were broken when George Clooney's bachelor days officially ended at the end of September. George and Amal's wedding was a spectacle worthy of a film set with iconic images of water taxis carrying guests up the grand canals of this waterborne city. Venice is a dramatic destination to start a life together, with the autumn and spring the best times to get married to avoid the peak summer tourist season. George's venue, the Donà Palace Hotel boasts restored historical features that will take your breath away. However, this is just one of the many beautiful places you can get married in Venice, the Palazzo Cavalli, where civil ceremonies take place features an imposing location overlooking the Grand Canal.

Return flights to Venice start from £83.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Chateau Miraval, France – The most highly-anticipated wedding of recent years was a long time coming but turned out just as beautiful as people hoped it would be. Brangelina exchanged vows at Chateau Miraval, a 1,200 acre estate in the village of Correns, South-west France. They have called this place home for a number of years now, making it nearly impossible to book it for your own personal wedding. However, there are many beautiful places in the Provence-Cote d'Azur region of France such as the Chateau Val Joanis where you can wed among vineyards, beautiful gardens and courtyards.

Return flights to Marseille start from £88.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Forte di Belvedere, Florence, Italy – The historic heart of the Renaissance movement, Florence has the history, the designers and the weather for a great wedding. Start your life together in the enchantingly beautiful Tuscan region of Italy and discover a plethora of romantic backdrops for your special day. Whether you want to get married in a castle, at a vineyard or on an estate, Tuscany will not disappoint. Consider the Red Hall of the Palazzo Vecchio for a traditional and romantic Italian wedding or check out a villa, such as Il Cocceto, for a truly intimate and unforgettable time.

Return flights to Florence start from £72.

David and Victoria Beckham, Luttrellstown Castle, County Dublin, Ireland – The Beckham's are not the only celebrities to tie the knot at Luttrellstown Castle in Ireland. It is a popular spot for posh weddings with majestic surroundings and sweeping grounds – ideal for celebrities looking for privacy. This castle boasts a timeless sense of elegance and tranquillity while providing a remarkable and unforgettable backdrop for any wedding celebration. The best part of getting married in Ireland, though, is that it has an abundance of castles to choose from for your dream wedding including Ashford Castle, a recently renovate five-star hotel in County Mayo.

Return flights to Dublin start from £59.

Sir Elton John and David Furnish, Windsor Guildhall, Berkshire, UK – After 12 years together, Sir Elton John and David Furnish tied the knot with a civil partnership ceremony at The Windsor Guildhall. This historic building, which was designed by Sir Thomas Fitz, is filled with charm and is perfect for anyone looking for a wedding steeped with culture. The Guildhall Chamber is the most accessible within the collection and is available for wedding ceremonies on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and can accommodate up to 100 of your loved ones. With the Queen's history of wedding crashing (Manchester, 2012), there's even the chance you may have a Royal visitor with Windsor Castle just 100m away. 

Weekend car hire starts from £40.
