This year has given us everything we could have wished for in terms of celebrity marriages. We’ve had weddings of all shapes and sizes; royal, secret and even live-streamed. With beautiful, hand crafted dresses, amazing decorations and star-studded guest lists, it’s not surprising that these weddings were so eagerly anticipated, reported and longed after by the Zankyou team!
So, seeing as though the year is coming to a cool end, we’ve put together a countdown of all the top 10 celebrity weddings of the year. Tune in each week to see which ones have made the list – you won’t want to miss out!
At Number 10…
Kate Upton and Justin Verlander
This November, supermodel Kate Upton and the Houston Astros pitcher tied the knot in a ceremony in Italy! After dating on and off for several years, Verlander proposed to Upton before the 2016 baseball season, however didn’t announce the news until the Met Gala in May later that year, when Upton wore her huge engagement ring on full display.
The couple wed in an intimate setting at the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort in the province of Siena, Tuscany. The wedding ceremony came just a few days after Justin’s team won the 2017 World Series, so there was plenty to celebrate all-round for the happy couple. Upton’s dress was the demure long sleeve, lace Valentino dress with a floor-length tulle veil that tumbled behind her while her bridesmaids added a touch of colour in blush hue gowns by Needle and Thread.
But, whilst Upton and Verlander’s wedding was beautiful, there was another couple who pulled out all of the stops… and we mean ALL of the stops.
Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir
This year saw rapper Radric Davis, otherwise known as Gucci Mane, and his model girlfriend Keyshia Ka’oir, tying the knot in a wedding fit for a princess on October 17. The couple have been dating since 2010 and engaged in November 2016 during a “Kiss Cam” moment at an Atlanta Hawks game.
The couple spent a cool $1.7million on the diamond-themed occasion, at the lavish Four Seasons in Miami. Even broadcast live on BET as well as recorded for their reality TV show, Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir: The Mane Event, the couple enjoyed their no-expense-spared affair. Needing a sword to cut into their $75,000 wedding cake, a feat which required 3 months of planning, 3 days of baking, 8,000 handmade sugar flowers as well as 2,500 Swarovski crystals, the couple were dripping in diamonds.
Keyshia stunned in a custom Charbel Zoe Couture gown, with beaded long-sleeves and a sheer skirt with embroidery and feathers. She finished the ensemble with a crystal headpiece and blingy drop earrings and a bouquet of diamonds – clearly, Keyshia spared no expense on her outfit.
Both of these weddings were amazing, albeit in very different ways, and we loved them. But see which other celebrities have tied knot in spectacular style in the next article… You don’t want to miss out!
