We’re finally far enough into 2018 that the term “
wedding” is no longer automatically associated with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (though more royals—Princess Eugenie and Lord Ivar Mountbatten—have since followed suit, with the latter’s nuptials marking the first gay royal wedding). Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson may have ultimately opted out of taking the big leap, but particularly since summer wedding season rolled around, there has been no shortage of other celebrities who’ve gone full-speed ahead. Models like Karlie Kloss, Erin Wasson, and Caroline Brasch Nielsen are just some who’ve seized the moment as of late, giving fashion its marital moment ahead of Marc Jacobs’s union with his hot candlemaker fiancé, Char DeFrancesco. Meanwhile, Kanye West’s socks and sandals nearly stole the show at Pusha T’s ceremony at the Versace Mansion, which couldn’t have been more different from Game of Thrones stars Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie’s wedding at a castle in Scotland. See for yourself, with a look at the most over-the-top, notable weddings so far this year, here.
Henry Holland and David Hodgson
Henry Holland, the slogan tee extraordinaire and designer behind House of Holland, capped off his 2018 by marrying David Hodgson, the creative director of Lulu Guinness, at Old Marylebone Town Hall in London, where Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Melanie Griffith, and Liam Gallagher have all previously exchanged vows.
Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman
A few years after they costarred on ABC’s
Revenge, Emily VanCamp and Josh Bowman headed to the Bahamas to make like their on-screen characters and tie the knot.
Grant Gustin and LA Thoma
The 28-year-old actor Grant Gustin—aka the Flash—married the 30-year-old physical therapist Andrea “LA” Thoma midway through December in Los Angeles. While they kept their symbolic Kadazan ceremony the held last year to honor of Thoma’s ancestors low-key, this time, they invited an actor-filled crowd to the proceedings, including
Melissa Benoist and Daveed Diggs.
Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski
Having declined Donald Trump’s offer to use the White House as their wedding venue, following their engagement last year,
Morning Joe cohosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski instead held their ceremony in close proximity to the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution at the National Archives. Both were married when they began their tenure at MSNBC in 2007, and both were divorced about five years later, at which point they discreetly began dating. (They purposely chose just two days after Thanksgiving to get married, hoping for some privacy while people were out of town.)
Mandy Moore and Taylor Goldsmith

Marta Ortega and Carlos Torretta
Bob Saget and Kelly Rizzo
“Okay, so we went and did it. And damn are we happy,” the 62-year-old comedian and former
Full House star posted on Instagram in late October to announce that, following their engagement last November, he and 39-year-old Eat Travel Rock host Kelly Rizzo had gotten married. (Among those who attended the wedding were John Mayer—even though it meant delaying his Instagram live show by three hours.)
Princess Ayako of Takamodo and Kei Moriya
Princess Ayako of Takamodo turned away from her royal status to marry Kei Moriya, a commoner who works for a major Japanese shipping company. Per the Imperial House of Japan’s rules, women who marry non royals must forfeit their place in the royal family. Princess Ayako married Moriya at Meiji Shrine in Tokyo on October 29, 2018.
Duchess Sophie of Württemberg and Count Maximilien of Andigné
Barely a week had passed after Princess Eugenie’s nuptials when yet another royal wedding came along, thanks to Duchess Sophie of Württemberg and the French aristocrat Count Maximilien of Andigné, who tied the knot at the Castle of Tegernsee in Germany, near the Bavarian Alps.
Dada Stileman and Hayley Bloomindale
And, just a week after attending Princess Eugenie’s wedding, the 32-year-old Bloomingdale’s heiress Hayley Bloomingdale hosted her own, marking her union to the lighting designer Dada Stileman. She wore an apparently beach-friendly gown by Carolina Herrera for the ceremony, which took place in Santa Barbara.
Joshua Kushner and Karlie Kloss
The ever-subtle couple
Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner took their six-year relationship to another level in October with a surprise small ceremony in upstate New York. The newlyweds may not share the political views of Joshua’s brother, presidential adviser Jared Kushner, but whether Kloss likes it or not, their union means that she’s now officially related to the Trumps. (Ivanka, for her part, is thrilled: She proclaimed Kloss to be her “sister” following the news of their engagement over the summer.)
Rob Younkers and Joe Zee
The stylist (and former
W fashion director) Joe Zee also headed upstate this October to get hitched, bringing his new husband, the designer Rob Younkers, along with him, of course. Julianne Moore attended the ceremony, which was followed by some rustic festivities that started off with appetizers served atop nails affixed to planks of wood.
Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank
the Royal Wedding 2.0, royals and a surprisingly hefty number of celebrities returned to St. George’s Chapel in Windsor this October to witness the union of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk
Just before September came to a close, Gwyneth Paltrow and
Brad Falchuk headed to the Hamptons to officially tie the knot in front of guests like Robert Downey Jr., Cameron Diaz, Benji Madden, and Steven Spielberg.
Lord Ivar Mountbatten and James Coyle
Despite the “miserable British weather,” as he later put it on Instagram, Lord Ivar Mountbatten married his partner, James Coyle, at the end of September in a small ceremony, which saw the latter’s ex-wife walk him down the aisle. Seeing as Lord Ivar is the Queen’s third cousin once removed, their union marked the
first gay royal wedding, temporarily stealing the show from even Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Ryan Lochte and Kayla Rae Reid
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte and model Kayla Rae Reid, who met on Instagram, actually wed back in January. Seeing as that ceremony was secret, this September, they decided to do it all over again, this time at a ranch in Palm Springs.
Chiara Ferragni and Fedez
The Blonde Salad’s
Chiara Ferragni married Italian rapper Fedez on Saturday, September 1, 2018, in Italy, after a weekend of elaborate events. For the actual ceremony, Ferragni wore Dior Haute Couture, and the house’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri was reportedly in attendance. She changed into a more playful gown after the ceremony, and shared a closer look at both ensembles on Instagram.
Vincent Cassel and Tina Kunakey
Vincent Cassel, 52, headed to a city hall in southwestern France to marry the 21-year-old model Tina Kunakey. They’ve already landed a magazine cover together, and Cassel has
already addressed their age difference by declaring, “I’m very much in love and sure we are going to make babies.”
Caroline Brasch Nielsen and Frederik Bille Brahe
The Danish model Caroline Brasch Nielsen and her now husband Frederik Bille Brahe, a chef,
took over the canals of Copenhagen for a day in August for a ceremony complete with sunflowers and their pet border collie.
Emily DiDonato and Kyle Peterson
The model Emily DiDonato headed for the mountains of Colorado to marry the financier Kyle Peterson, just four years after they met by sitting next to each other on a plane DiDonato had boarded for an Australian
Vogue cover shoot.
2 Chainz and Kesha Ward
Tauheed Epps, aka 2 Chainz, and Kesha Ward—seen here with their three children, Heaven, Harmony, and Halo—took over the
ridiculously over-the-top Versace Mansion for a ceremony that drew the likes of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the latter of whom caused a scene when he showed up wearing socks and sandals.
Robin Wright and Clement Giraudet
Before heading off to honeymoon in Spain,
House of Cards star Robin Wright—who divorced Sean Penn in 2010—quietly married her Clement Giraudet, the head of VIP relations at Saint Laurent, in a quiet, largely social media-free wedding in France.
Lolita Jacobs and Jean-Baptiste Talbourdet-Napoleone
Seven years after meeting him at a club in Paris, the stylist and creative director
Lolita Jacobs married Jean-Baptiste Talbourdet-Napoleone in Saint-Tropez, wearing a dress casually designed by her old pal Simon Porte Jacquemus.
Hilary Swank and Philip Schneider
Erin Wasson and Bart Tassy
Erin Wasson and her pals, who all just so happened to wear pink, took over Austin on the day that the model wed her partner of two years, the restaurateur Bart Tassy, in some very ruffly Vivienne Westwood.
Vanessa Paradis and Samuel Benchetrit
Actress and eternal Chanel muse
Vanessa Paradis tucked her ex Johnny Depp a bit further away into her past when she married the director Samuel Benchetrit in a small ceremony outside of Paris at the end of June. Their union turns out to have brought about one for her daughter Lily-Rose Depp and Benchetrit’s son Jules Benchetrit, who’s pretty much the Timothée Chalamet of France, too.
Pusha T and Virginia Williams
Terrence Thornton, aka Pusha T, married his partner of 11 years, Virginia Williams, in their hometown of Virginia Beach. The ceremony also happened to mark Dior Homme newbie
Kim Jones‘s first foray into bridal design.
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook
In case you didn’t know that her new husband, Karl Cook, is an equestrian, he and the actress
Kaley Cuoco took care to hold their wedding at a horse stable in San Diego and wed beneath a giant feathered and floral horseshoe. (They also invited miniature ponies to join in on the festivities.)
Myla Dalbesio and Nathan Hageman
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook
Before she put her hair in a ponytail and switched into her cozier Tadashi Shoji jumpsuit to celebrate, Cuoco wore a lacy Reem Acra gown and cape to marry Cook.
Felicity Jones and Charles Guard
Rose Leslie and Kit Harington
Tabitha Simmons and Topper Mortimer
Outfitted in Dolce & Gabbana, the house for which she’s also a stylist, the shoe designer and editor
Tabitha Simmons married the financier Topper Mortimer at a church on Manhattan’s Upper East Side in front of a crowd that included Sienna Miller.

Emma Rosenzweig and Tal Rosenzweig
Also in early June, the model and Danish It girl Emma Leth, who now goes by Emma Rosenzweig,
made like Bella Hadid posing topless in a gigantic straw hat in Mexico by marrying the artist Tal Rosenzweig in a show-stealing cap of her own, designed by Jacquemus. (She may not have gone topless, but she did keep things semi-nude in a translucent lace slip.)
Barron Hilton and Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff
Over in St. Barts,
Barron Hilton, aka Nicky Rothschild and Paris Hilton’s younger brother, married fellow socialite Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff in a ceremony that naturally ended with Paris DJ’ing.
Hugh Grant and Anna Eberstein
Hugh Grant abruptly brought his reputation as an avowed singleton to an end when he married Anna Eberstein, with whom he has three children, just days after news broke that they were engaged. (They still managed to keep things relatively quiet, though, by marring at the Chelsea Register Office in London.)
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
At this point, if you don’t know pretty much every detail from the
royal wedding that took place this June, from Meghan Markle’s Givenchy gown to Prince Harry’s unmissable, rule-breaking red beard, you’ve probably been—quite enviably—living under a rock.
Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter
Things got off to a rocky start for former
The Hills star (and one of the least paparazzi-plagued Kardashian-Jenners) Brody Jenner and blogger Kaitlynn Carter and their destination wedding in Indonesia. There were reports that only one of two of Jenner’s parents would be attending, seeing as Caitlyn Jenner apparently had “previously scheduled work commitments”—which turned out to be letting loose at a charity event that also happens to be a bacchanal—and Jenner himself admitted that he never heard back from his half-sisters Kendall and Kylie regarding their RSVPs. By the time they’d holed up in a treehouse on the island of Niki Sumba for a week, though, all seemed to have been forgotten for the couple, who held a beachside ceremony on what they came to call “#jennerisland.”
Aidy Bryant and Conner O’Malley
Aidy Bryant held
her wedding to the comedy writer Conner O’Malley in—gasp!—Brooklyn, against the backdrop of the expose brick of the Wythe Hotel (and in the company of some of her costars from SNL).
