Since Kate Middleton and Prince William married in 2011 the British public and the world have fallen in love with the Royals all over again and inspired other celebrity weddings. From Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (2014), to Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer(1954) celebrity weddings have been the talk of brides, grooms and the wedding industry for over 60 years and will continue to be inspirational.
Taking a look back at 2018, we witnessed the wedding of the year between Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. In November fans discovered that Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin also married, but announced to the world in a less conventional and cute way by changing their Instagram names. Both had a huge influence on 2018 weddings and fans of the royals and celebrities. Other celebrities who wed in 2018 were Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer, Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank, Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard, Chanel Iman and Sterling Shephard.
