Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding revealed as nation’s favourite

23 May 2017

The nation’s favourite celebrity wedding has been unveiled in a recent poll commissioned by specialist group travel agent Red7

A recent poll commissioned by specialist group travel agent Red7 has named the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton as the nation’s favourite celebrity wedding of the last two decades. Respondents of all ages, genders, and locations across the country took part in the survey.

Ian Lucas, managing director of Red7, commented: “Kate and Wills’ wedding was the perfect fairytale celebration, from start to finish, so I’m not surprised it has a special place in the nation’s hearts. With Pippa Middleton’s nuptials being touted as the society wedding of the year, and rumours swirling that Prince Harry may be popping the question soon, who knows what this top 10 will look like in another 20 years.”

There was, however, a generational gap when it came to choosing the nation’s second favourite wedding, with the youngest generation citing social media queen Kim Kardashian West’s 2014 wedding to Kanye West as their top pick. Those between the ages of 25-34 and 45-54 selected David Beckham and Victoria 'Posh Spice' Adams as their second favourite, whilst 35-44 year olds opted for the low-key marriage of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The oldest voters, aged 55 and above, selected Andy Murray and Kim Sears’ celebration from 2015 as their second favourite nuptials.

Ian continued: “We have seen many celebrity weddings in the past two decades since Red7 launched, from minimalist beachfront ceremonies to wild and outlandish affairs. Trends continue to change, but the key is always ensuring that the bride and groom are one very happy couple on the day.”

The full top 10 is as follows: 

  1. 2011 - Prince William and Kate Middleton (19%)
  2. 1999 - David Beckham and Victoria Adams (6%)
  3. 2014 - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie (5%)
  4. 2015 - Andy Murray and Kim Sears (4%)
  5. 2008 - Beyoncé and Jay Z (3%)
  6. 2014 - George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin (3%)
  7. 2014 - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (3%)
  8. 2000 - Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston (3%)
  9. 2005 - Peter Andre and Katie Price (2%)
  10. 2014 - Elton John and David Furnish (2%)
