What’s better than a celebrity engagement? A celebrity wedding, of course! Here’s our list of some of the celebrity weddings we’re most looking forward to in 2016.
Lady Gaga and Taylor Kinney
Superstar pop singer Lady Gaga and her man Chicago Fire actor, Taylor Kinney, got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2015. Due to their busy schedules the American couple haven’t set a date for their big day, but we do know that Lady Gaga’s loves to put on a show and we’re sure her own wedding will be nothing short of spectacular.
Let’s just hope Gaga doesn’t wear a meat dress down the aisle…
Eva Longoria and Jose Antonio Baston
Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and her boyfriend of two years Jose Antonio Baston, got engaged in the middle of the Arabian desert during a romantic safari in Dubai. Jose, who is the President of Content and Television at Mexico-based Grupo Televisa, proposed with a HUGE crimson coloured ring, and will become Eva’s third husband. If their lavish engagement is anything to go by, then their wedding will certainly be one to look forward to in the New Year!
FKA Twigs and Robert Pattinson
Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, and British singer and songwriter FKA Twigs, were engaged in May 2015 after Robert proposed with a $100, 000 engagement ring. Shortly after the couple’s engagement, rumours began circulating that the British pair had called things off due to their busy schedules. However, all signs point to marriage for the vamp and his lady, who are set to exchange vows in Autumn 2016.
Jesinta Campbell and Buddy Franklin
AFL superstar, Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin, and former Miss Universe Australia, Jesinta Campbell, became engaged just days before Christmas in 2014 and the bride-to-be announced the happy surprise on Instagram. Their wedding date has not been confirmed however we do know that the couple are planning an intimate ceremony with only a small number of people making it on the guests list.
Nicole Warne and Luke Shadbolt
Australian fashion and lifestyle blogger, Nicole Warne, (AKA the woman behind fashion blog Gary Pepper Girl), got engaged to her boyfriend of eight-years Luke Shadbolt. Luke proposed underneath cherry blossoms trees of Tokyo during a romantic boat ride in April 2015. Nicole is known for being a leader in the Australian fashion scene, and we can’t wait to see what the blogging beauty wears on her big day.
Rupert Murdoch and Jerry Hall
After a whirlwind four-month romance, media mogul Rupert Murdoch and model Jerry Hall announced their engagement – in one of Rupert’s newspaper, of course. He posted the announcement above in the Births, Marriages and Deaths section of London’s The Times. The couple, who have been dating since October 2015, were introduced by Rupert’s sister and their relationship is his first since his 2013 split with his wife of 14 years, Wendi Deng.
Iggy Azalea and Nick Young
Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea, got engaged to LA Lakers’ basketball player Nick Young in June 2015, and if her $500,000 yellow diamond engagement ring is anything to go by we can only imagine how ‘Fancy’ her wedding will be! The blonde Aussie has thrown herself into her wedding planning and has booked her venue and photographer, and has mentioned she is leaning towards a string quartet for her wedding ceremony. Iggy even shared a sneak peek of her future wedding dress on her Instagram account too, which is being made by Armani Privé of course!
Snezana Markoski and Sam Wood
Who says reality TV romances don’t work out? Season three’s Bachelor Sam Wood and the woman he chose to hand the last precious rose to, Snezana Markoski, became engaged during a weekend getaway to Tasmania. The couple haven’t yet announced a wedding date – but we just had a great idea for a new wedding reality TV show – The Bachelor: Wedding Edition?
Candice Swanepoel and Hermann Nicoli
The 26-year-old Victoria’s Secret model had been in a relationship with her Brazilian boyfriend Hermann Nicoli for more than a decade before he proposed. Nicoli, 33, popped the question to the blonde-bombshell model in August 2015. The attractive couple are notoriously private and share only a handful of photos of themselves together on social media, so it’s no wonder that no details of their upcoming wedding have been released yet. However, we can only imagine how beautiful the glamorous super model will be when she swaps the runway for the aisle.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Jason Statham
The news of the couple’s engagement came after the model, 28, debuted her sparkling diamond engagement ring on the red carpet at the 73rd Golden Globes in Hollywood. The British pair posed for photographs on the red carpet, with Rosie positioning her new ring in plain sight of the flashing cameras. The couple’s rep later confirmed the news to the press.
Kevin Hart and Eniko Parish
The comedian and Ride Along star Kevin Hart popped the question to his girlfriend of five years at her 30th birthday bash in August 2014. We’re hoping it was a freak coincidence that same night was the premiere of Hart’s ex-wife’s show, Atlanta Exes. Plans for the exact wedding date are yet to be announced.
Christina Aguilera and Matt Rutler
The Dirrty singer and her film producer beau Matt Rutler became enagaged on Valentine’s Day in 2014. Rutler popped the question with a rather large vintage-inspired engagement ring before the arrival of their first child in August. The pair met back in 2010 on the set of Burlesque, during which Aguilera was going through a painful divorce with ex-husband Jordan Bratman. The couple have since told the press they are not in any rush to set a date for the wedding.
Hayden Panettiere and Wladimir Klitschko
The 26-year-old former Heroes star and 39-year-old Ukrainian heavy weight world champion, boxer Klitschko, have been engaged since September 2013. The couple had their baby girl in December 2014 and are in no hurry to set a date for their big day. The 5’2” former Nashville star told Cosmopolitan Magazine in March of 2014 that she and Klitschko aren’t rushing down the aisle any time soon: “We are very laid-back about the wedding plans; we don’t want to rush anything”. Don’t leave us hanging too long, Hayden!
Ryan Phillippe and Paulina Slagter
According to E! News Ryan, 41, proposed to his girlfriend of four years Paulina, 25, over the Christmas holidays! The couple were seen enjoying lunch in Miami and Paulina was reportedly not shy about showing off her new engagement ring. This will be Paulina’s first marriage and Ryan’s second. The Hollywood actor was previously married to Legally Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon for eight years, and they had two children together, 16-year-old Ava and 12-year-old Deacon. Ryan has a third child, four-year-old Kai, with model and actress Alexis Knapp.
