It is apparent how this year shone bright in terms of all kinds of entertainment, not just locally but on an international level. But what set this year apart from the rest is how it market some of the biggest celebrity weddings to date, giving aspiring lovebirds something to look forward to. 2018 witnessed it all in terms of weddings, from private, intimate ceremonies, to over-the-top grand weddings with never-ending events.
This comprehensive list will make you relive some of the best and the most happening weddings that took place this year, all in the time for new beginnings of the upcoming year.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
This worldwide phenomenon was nothing less than a fairy-tale venture. This particular wedding made history as people had their bets on it not happening, but Markle, being a powerful woman of her stature, stood tall and proved everyone wrong by bagging the prince of her dreams.
Imran Khan and Bushra Maneka
Being the election year, what stood out just as much as Khan taking over the government was his personal life. The Naya Pakistan pioneer was discrete about the matter at first, but it soon made waves all over the media. This wedding did not sit well particularly with Khan’s ex-wife, Reham Khan, who accused him of cheating on her. But it’s apparent how drama follows him wherever he goes.
Feroze Khan and Alizay Khan
These sweethearts tied the know earlier in March this year, when Khan revealed he was going to be betrothed in an arranged marriage. This wedding riled some fans up, who were clearly shipping Khan with Sajal Aly, while some were mad about how his bride wasn’t from the entertainment industry.
Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh
Deemed as the Indian Royal Wedding, these lovebirds finally came together in a state of holy matrimony later this year. Holding an intimate but grand ceremony in Italy, the couple wowed everyone with their joyful moments, looking as exquisitely beautiful as ever.
Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal
This big fat Indian wedding is bound to go down in history because of its splendour. With mere invitations costing millions, the Ambani wedding made waves as they invited Beyonce to perform and had a guest list of the world’s A-listers. After all, not a lot of weddings can turn Salman Khan into a backup dancer…
Aisha Khan and Major Uqbah
Earlier this year in March, everyone’s favourite actress Aisha Khan bid farewell to the entertainment industry, and announced her engagement to her beau Major Uqbah a month later. The wedding affair was grand and attended by multiple celebrities, but the couple’s lovable dances are still remembered and loved.
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja
Another statuesque wedding across the border, Sonam Kapoor tied the knot looking as ravishing as ever in all her events. Our favourite look has to be the gold and white Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla number the starlet donned for her mehndi.
Aiman Khan and Muneeb Butt
You best believe this wedding affair has finally put a stop their functions. Yep, finally. The Aineeb wedding made waves because of the grandeur of their ceremonies, which were attended by local celebrities, who seemed to be having the time of their life in every event.
Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
The biggest crossover of the year came forth in the form of this couple, and subsequently, their wedding. Their destination wedding in Jodhpur was a dream concept for many, and had two separate ceremonies; a Christian wedding and a Hindu ceremonial wedding, both equally grand in stature.
Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie
All hail Ygritte and Jon Snow! It was a total treat for Game of Thrones fans to see their favourite on-screen couple tie the knot in real life in a super-sweet ceremony.
Zoe Viccaji and Kamal Khan
A new one wedding the block, singer Zoe Viccaji got hitched a few days ago to filmmaker Kamal Khan in a two-day intimate ceremony. The bridesmaids had some prominent faces like Sanam Saeed, Meera Ansari, and Zoe’s sister Rachel, all looking ravishing.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
Looks like some celebs love breaking the stereotypes of grand weddings, and Miley Cyrus follows the example. Tying the knot in private, intimate ceremony, the couple confirmed their wedding news by posting affectionate pictures on their Instagram accounts.
