Hollywood’s most eligible bachelor is officially taken and that is, understandably, big news. Dozens of paparazzi gathered at the various locations where the wedding celebrations were held – like Venice and England – and George Clooney, 52, and British-based human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, did not disappoint the huge media turnout.

2. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
And so they are finally married, after what seemed like eternity, in August. But the world’s attention fell on the bride’s wedding dress – and for a good reason.

From the front, it had looked like any other traditional white satin gown, but the back was a real surprise. The creation by Donatella Versace featured drawings of the couple’s six children – Maddox, 13; Pax, 10; Zahara, nine; Shiloh, eight; and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox – which were embroidered on the gown and veil.

The wedding which was held in San José del Cabo, Mexico, was “a night of gorgeous locale, food and a night of rock ‘n’ roll performances worthy of a music festival, according to various western media.

4. Solange Knowles and Alan Ferguson
For their New Orleans wedding, Solange Knowles and longtime boyfriend and video director Alan Ferguson showed they have a dramatic, fun flair. Not only did they ride up to the wedding on matching white bicycles, but the bride wore a white Stephane Rolland jumpsuit with an attached cape, then changed into all-white Humberto Leon for Kenzo floor-length gown with another matching cape! Now, that’s cool!
