Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves ties the knot

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on June 11th, 2012

Actor Matthew McConaughey has married his long-term partner, Camila Alves – who he has two children with – in a ceremony at the couple’s home in Texas this weekend.

Matthew, who apparently looked like ‘an old Hollywood movie star’, wed Brazilian model Camila as the sun set in front of family and friends in a ceremony overseen by a local pastor and a monk.

Unlike many other celebrities, the couple kept the nuptials a secret from some guests up until the very last minute, and what was said in the vows no-one is likely to find out. According to Us Weekly, the vows were kept private from the wedding guests as the bride and groom whispered them in each other’s ears. How Lost in Translation! But it must have been very emotional as the new Mrs McConaughey reportedly was tearing up.

Just a perfect day: Drew Barrymore marries Will Kopelman in Chanel wedding dress

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on June 7th, 2012

One of our favourite actresses Drew Barrymore exchanged vows with her new husband Wil Kopelman last weekend. And as she should, considering Will is well-connected with Chanel, the bride wore Chanel.

Glowing and with a baby bump on show, the 37-year-old bride looked stunning in her muslin and organza gown, completed with an embroidered skirt with tulle flowers, feathers and a black belt.

The official wedding photo in People magazine shows the happy couple beaming of joy as Will gently holds Drew’s baby bump.

As many modern brides, Drew chose to wear a veil – very much a traditional custom – and carried a wedding bouquet featuring cherry blossoms as she walked down the aisle at her mansion in Montecito, California.

While I personally wouldn’t be able to tell them apart without the help of Google, congratulations are in order to boy band McFly’s Tom Fletcher and his new wife, childhood sweetheart Giovanna Falcone.

The couple exchanged their wows in a (surprisingly) sunny London this weekend at One Marylebone; a 19th century Grade I listed former church. We have yet to see photos of the blushing bride – probably due to them selling the rights to some magazine for a pretty penny – but according to Tom’s Twitter feed, Giovanna looked amazing.

Very on trend, the groom kept his (weeping?) fans up-do-date about his marital status and celebrations on the social network, as he sporadically updated his Twitter account over the weekend.

Present at the wedding were Tom’s band mates, Harry Judd, Dougie Poynter and Danny Jones, BBC Radio presenter Ferne Cotton and the bride’s little brother TOWIE’s Mario Falcone. We knew that name sounded familiar!

Here are some of the tweets from Mr Fletcher and his missus…

It’s official: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are engaged!

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on April 16th, 2012

After months and perhaps even years of speculation, it is finally official: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (or Brangelina as they’ve been dubbed) are engaged to be married. The couple, who met at the filming of Mr & Mr  Smith seven years ago, have previously said that they wouldn’t tie the knot until it was equal for everyone.

Earlier in the year, Pitt told US media that the couple has been ‘getting a lot of pressure from the kids’ to get married. And it now seems that the pressure from their six children finally became the deciding factor.

According to the couple’s rep, there isn’t a wedding date yet, but the ring that Angelina was seen wearing last week is ‘a promise for the future’. The most talked about piece of jewellery in La La Land isn’t any off-the-shelf kind of thing either.

Pitt has been working with jeweller Robert Procop for a year to design the sparkler. Commenting on the collaboration a statement from Procop said: “Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so I was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand,” the statement continued. “Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality.”

As mentioned there is still no news about when the Hollywood power couple will wed or what style of wedding they will have and where in the world it will happen. Our bet is on a more subdued event rather than a Kardashian-esque extravaganza (both Brad and Angelina have been married previously), and somewhere that means something to the couple – and their children. Perhaps Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, Vietnam or Nice where the couple’s children were born/adopted from…

Also unknown is the design of Angelina’s wedding dress. We think she’d look stunning in a vintage gown, only with less leg on display than at the recent Oscar’s.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel planning a ‘big summer wedding’

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on April 5th, 2012

A preview of what the happy couple will look like on their wedding day?

On/off couple Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, who got engaged back in January are said to be planning a ‘big summer wedding’ according to People Magazine. And get this, it’s allegedly Justin who is set on having it large! Is Justin a groomzilla in the making?

“Jessica initially wanted a smaller, more intimate wedding, but Justin from the beginning wanted a big wedding, and that’s what they have decided on.”

Apparently Biel has yet to say yes to a dress but the 30-year old is apparently “very involved” in the planning, with Timberlake promising his bride-to-be “the best day ever.”

While the couple were briefly broken up in 2011, Justin opened up about his feelings for Jessica to Vanity Fair, saying: “She is the single-handedly most significant person in my life. In my 30 years, she is the most special person, OK?” Aww isn’t he sweetheart.

When asked about having to deal with all the attention the pair have received over the years, Jessica told Vogue: “I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t feel the need to clear anything up.

“It’s the most precious thing that I have in my life, and I care about it so much that I don’t care about what anyone says or thinks. I have just not addressed it in any real way, and I’m not going to. It’s mine. And I really like that about it.”

OK, Justin and Jessica may just be our favourite couple right now.

We’ll bring you more details about the forthcoming nuptials when we know more.

Drew Barrymore to wed in Chanel

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 28th, 2012

Drew Barrymore’s wedding plans are coming together quickly – and rather nicely too.

One of our favourite actresses (not really for her acting skills but for being the way she is), Drew Barrymore (37) is set to marry art consultant Will Kopelman (34) this June.  And as always the question is: what will the bride wear?

Drew is to walk down the aisle in a Chanel wedding dress – quite apt seeing as her fiancé’s father is the former CEO of the fashion house. Did someone say HUGE discount…

According to US Weekly, the loved up couple  recently went to Paris to pick the perfect dress.

Having only got engaged over the holidays such an early wedding date may have surprised someone. But the pregnant bride is said to want to tie the knot before the baby arrives, and she doesn’t want to be huge while doing so.

We completely understand Drew, those wedding photos might haunt you for life otherwise.

Have Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy secretly wed?

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 19th, 2012

Kate’s mother, Goldie Hawn, may have revealed that her actress daughter has married English rocker Matt Bellamy – without telling anyone!

In an interview with ES Magazine, Goldie is quoted: My kids are fantastic with their children, they have an amazing parental ethic and I’m very proud of them for that.

‘When my daughter Kate married an English rock star it didn’t worry me; all that matters [is] that the relationship is a good one. What people do is not necessarily who they are.’

The couple, who have son Bingham Hawn together, announced their engagement in the spring of last year, so a wedding was definitely on the cards. But to have married in secret, now that have just spoilt our Monday morning. What dress did Kate wear?? Who was on the guest list?

Jessica Biel debuts engagement ring from fiancé Justin Timberlake

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on March 12th, 2012

Justin Timberlake sure put a ring on it. After months of speculation, Jessica Biel has been spotted with a huge diamond ring on her finger. And what a rock it is!

The vintage looking ring features a large, slightly rounded square-cut diamond with smaller stones around. It is great to see that Jessica, who turned 30 just a week ago, is a girl after my own heart.

It is not know what carat the ring is yet, bit from the looks of it  Justin has done very well.

Secret wedding? Natalie Portman shows of eco wedding ring at the Oscars

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on February 29th, 2012

Rumours that Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied have gotten married have been doing the rounds ever since Sunday’s Oscars when they turned up on the red carpet with matching, unexplained silver bands on their wedding fingers.

Did they marry in secret? According to American magazine People, the jeweller who designed the rings has let the cat out of the bag. Jamie Wolf, jeweller-to-the-stars – and a personal friend of Natalie and Benjamin – was responsible for the wedding rings, having created two bespoke designs.

Portman’s shiny new sparklers is made with two tiny eco-friendly, ethically sourced diamond rings and has been designed to fit snugly around her huge engagement ring. Millepied on the other hand could be seen wearing a platinum band made from recycled metals.

Loved up and environmentally aware. We like!

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 26th, 2012

Newly engaged Hollywood actress, Drew Barrymore, hit the red carpet at the Big Miracle première in Washington last night.

This was Drew’s first public appearance since saying yes to fiancé Will Kopelman’s question earlier this month. Drew was glowing – as newly engaged ladies should do – as she showed off her huge diamond ring which according to sources is close to four carats.

Her beau, Will, looked dapper in a suit and tie as he accompanied his pretty lady up the red carpet.

Where can we find one of those for ourselves?! Speaking of both the ring AND the man of course.

Heidi Klum and Seal to split. Which celebrity marriage to end next?

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 23rd, 2012

We are not even one month into the new year, but with celebrity marriages seeming to drop quicker than Kerry Katona’s weight each January, Irish bookmaker Paddy Power have chalked up some odds on other famous couples who could potentially follow in the footsteps of Heidi Klum & Seal, Demi Moore & Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry & Russell Brand and potentially (but still unconfirmed) Vanessa Paradis & Johnny Depp.

You’ll get the least in return on your investment if you place your money on Tess Daly and Vernon Kay (that Twitter scandal hasn’t disappeared just yet) who come in at a 4/1. The couple who have been married since 2003 are followed by Megan Fox and her hubby, former 90210 star, Brian Austin Green at 6/1 – Megan and Brian briefly split before getting married in 2010. Newlyweds Kate Moss and Jamie Hince come in on third place with 7/1.

On the other side of the spectrum is royal couple Prince William and Catherine, who at a 100/1 would make you a lot of money if you bet on them calling it quits in 2012.

Check out more celeb couples to have made Paddy Power’s split list below. Which couples would you put your money on?

Next Celeb Couple to Split in 2012
4/1  Tess Daly and Vernon Kay
6/1  Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
7/1  Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
10/1  Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith
11/1  Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith
12/1  Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman
16/1  Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
16/1  Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise
16/1  Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker

Brian McFadden proposes to Vogue Williams after only 8 months

By Elisabeth Edvardsen on January 13th, 2012

Not sure if age makes you think about things and decide quicker, or if it’s when you know you’ve found love you just know. Whatever the reason, congratulations are in order to former Westlife star Brian McFadden who is engaged to his girlfriend of eight months, Vogue Williams.

The 31-year-old only broke off an engagement to Australian singer Delta Goodrem in April last year, but speaking to OK! Australia Brian confessed: ‘It’s early (to be engaged) when you think about how long we’ve been together, but not when you consider the amount of time we’ve spent together. We’ve literally spent every second of every day together for eight months now.’

The happy couple met shortly after Brian’s relationship with Delta, who he had been engaged to for three years, ended in April 2011. However, this won’t be the first time down the aisle for the boyband singer; Brian was previously married to Kerry Katona.

Vogue and Brian, who are both Irish, plan to get married in Europe later this year.

Did you fall in love immediately and get engaged within a year after meeting your partner? We’d love to hear your story.

  Brian tweeted a photo of Vogue earlier this morning, writing: ‘My beautiful wife to be x.’

He also joked that he has to ‘invite all (his) followers to the wedding.’ The bride to be also took to Twitter to share the happy news with the world saying:

Congratulations are in order for US pop star Britney Spears who has done it again – getting engaged that is. The singer and her boyfriend of two years, Jason Trawick, is the latest celebrity couple to get engaged.

American celeb news site TMZ that is reporting that the 40-year-old Hollywood agent asked her father’s permission to marry his daughter before popping the question on his birthday. Britney then hinted to the happening on Twitter saying: “OMG. Last night Jason surprised me with the one gift I’ve been waiting for. Can’t wait to show you! SO SO SO excited!!”.

While this will be the third marriage for Britters, it is the first time Jason will don a suit to become a husband. Britney famously married childhood friend Jason Alexander in Las Vegas in 2004, then backing dancer Kevin Federline.
