Celebs who’ve tied the knot in Italy


Cape Town - Could Italy be the most romantic country in the world? Celebrities seem to think so.

Several famous couples have chosen the country as their wedding destination and we reckon they might be on to something.

Almost every Hollywood power couple that’s tied the knot there is still going strong.

We look at some of the most successful marriages with Italian roots.

Actor George Clooney and barrister Amal Clooney


The 58-year-old Catch-22 star married the British-Lebanese beauty in a four-day Venetian affair in September 2014.

According to Hello! Magazine the couple tied the knot inside the 16th century Aman Venice Hotel on the Grand Canal.

Guests included former supermodel Cindy Crawford and her businessman husband Randy Gerber, singer Bono and Vogue editor Anna Wintour.

Model Chrissy Teigen singer John Legend


The couple married in September 2013 on Lake Como, writes Msn.com.

Chrissy looked stunning in – not one, but – three Vera Wang creations. She later revealed that between fittings, she couldn’t stop buying dresses by the New York fashion designer.

"Every time I went in for a fitting, I couldn't stop getting one," she says. "It's just too pretty."

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West


The Wests reportedly spent £245 000 (then about R4,4 million) to rent out the 16th century Forte di Belvedere in Florence for their wedding in May 2014.

Celebrations for their nuptials began with a pre-wedding party in Versailles, France. Thereafter Kimye flew all 200 guests out to Italy for the big day, writes Msn.com.

Singer Justin Timberlake and actress Jessica Biel


Justin and Jessica said “I do” in the small village of Savelletri de Fasano, a region in the south of Italy, in the heel of the boot, writes Venice Events.

As she walked down the aisle in a pink Giambattista Valli creation, Jessica was serenaded by Justin with a song he specifically wrote for her.

The couple later said they decided to marry in Italy in 2012 because of their love for Italian cuisine.

Actors Emily Blunt and John Krasinski


It’s been almost nine years since they’ve tied the knot in Lake Como in July 2010.

Emily donned a custom-made cream chiffon gown by Marchesa, which featured a sweetheart neckline with embroidered detail, reports Glamour.

Guests in attendance at the outdoor-ceremony included actor Matt Damon and wife Luciana and Emily’s fellow Devil Wears Prada co-star Meryl Streep.
