It was an ‘East meets West’ themed celebration when British comedian Russell Brand and US pop singer Katy Perry married in a private ceremony in India in 2010. The wedding was carried out at the Aman-e-Khas luxury resort. The resort is bordered by the Ranthambhore National Park and is regarded as one of India’s largest sanctuaries.
The pair got engaged at the Taj Mahal just months before their special day was set to take place. Reportedly the wedding was carried out in a Hindu fashion and only attended by a select close-knit group of loved ones, as well as camels, elephants, and horses.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Many controversies and harsh criticism followed Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds when they married in Mount Pleasant, at Boone Hall Plantation, a site where scenes of "The Notebook" were filmed. The couple was accused of glorifying this South Carolina site where violence and discrimination once took place against slaves.
They have since expressed deep regret over their wedding destination of 2012: "It's impossible to reconcile. What we saw at the time was a wedding venue on Pinterest. What we saw after was a place built upon devastating tragedy." In 2019, Pinterest blocked the venue from publishing any posts on its site. Maybe avoid this venue if you wanna keep up with the political correctness of modern times!
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner
Before the second round of Bennifer, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner wedded in the Turks and Caicos Islands at the luxurious Parrot Cay Resort. The award-winning private island resort is perched in the Caribbean sea and is a true romantic haven, with over 100 acres of untouched nature and white sand beaches.
The remote and intimate island wedding took place in the summer of 2005, with only five people present (including the bride and groom). The nuptials ensued on the beach, with Garner already three months pregnant with their first child, Violet Affleck. Sadly the marriage did not last as Ben Affleck is now back as being Bennifer with JLo.
Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez
It was a Hollywood fairytale match when the actress Halle Berry married the French actor Olivier Martinez in 2013. The pair wedded with a baby boy on the way, in the groom's native France, at Chateau des Conde Vallery. The 16th-century venue is nestled between Paris and Burgundy and is said to have been constructed by the same architect who worked on the famed Louvre museum.
With only around 60 attendees, the wedding was rather discreet and down-to-earth. A celebratory dinner followed the chapel ceremony in a pitched white marquee where fireworks and dancing rang in the newlywed couple. Sadly, the two didn't jive much longer after the wedding and split in 2015 following some family drama disputes.
Chad Kroeger and Avril Lavigne
It was all Rock 'n Romance when Nickelback's Chad Kroeger wedded Avril Lavigne in a gothic-style French ceremony in the summer of 2013. Sure, they broke things off two years later but that's not what we're here for. The wedding was set in the stunning seaside city of Cannes at the 14th-century Chateau de la Napoule.
The gorgeous gardens around the castle are listed by the French Ministry of Culture as notable. The two rockers were surrounded by only about 100 close friends and family in an intimate candlelit ceremony. Forget the traditional white wedding dress! Avril rocked an all-black wedding dress and a black mesh veil and carried a black bouquet of roses. Daring!
