Romantic Round Up!

This weekend was packed full with celebrity wedding bells, what with 3 weddings and a proposal!

Starting with fashion designer and actress Lauren Conrad, best known for her role in the US reality show The Hills. The 27-year-old designer got engaged to her law student beau William Tell after 2 years together, and headed straight to Pavilions in West Hollywood to stock up on wine and cases of beer and cider in preparation for a possible party. Thankfully she was keen to flash her diamond so we got a sneaky peek!


Never one to shy away into the background, Jessica Simpson upstaged her best friend and publicist Lauren Auslander, in a revealing blue bridesmaid dress which showed off her cleavage in all its glory and attracted much attention!


Onto the weddings! Grammy award winning music producer and entrepreneur Pharrell Williams tied the knot with fashion designer Helen Lasichanh in an intimate ceremony at the Kampong National Tropical Botanical Gardens in Coconut Grove. Pharrell rocked a red tartan suit, while Helen opted for a voluminous checked blue puffed-sleeved gown with a tiara, rosary beads and diamond earrings. Guests were treated to a star-studded concert later in the evening, starring Usher and Busta Rhymes. We can only imagine…!


Despite being well renowned for her flashy style on the red carpet, actress Rose McGowan wowed in a very traditional white wedding gown when she tied the knot on Saturday in a romantic ceremony to artist Davey Detail in front of 60 guests. Rose’s strapless A-line silk Monique Lhuillier creation featured a corset and Chantilly lace draped with a fine tulle overlay, and the waistline of the dress was accented with a knot detail cascading into the skirt. She finished her bridal look with a raw edge chapel-length tulle veil and Jimmy Choo shoes.



Brides in Bloom!

It seems July is a popular time to get married, with a number of celebrities having recently maximised the good European weather to tie the knot.

Oscar winning actress Halle Berry and her French love, Olivier Martinez married in an intimate ceremony at the picturesque Chataeu des Conde in Burgundy, France, celebrated by 60 of their close friends and family. Halle is said to have donned a simple white dress with embellished straps, arriving at the venue in a white vintage Citroen DS.


Legendary singer Tina Turner also tied the knot with her long-term partner Erwin Bach. The 73-year-old singer and German record company executive Erwin, 57, exchanged vows in a Buddhist ceremony on the shores of Lake Zurich in Switzerland.

Finally, television personality Denise Welch married Lincoln Townley in a private villa on the Algarve, in front of 260 friends and family. Guests including Loose Women co-hosts Lisa Maxwell, Shobna Gulati, Carol McGiffin and Andrea McLean attended alongside celebrities Jill Halfpenny, Ingrid Tarrant, Christopher Biggins and Tricia Penrose.
