Stars Tie the Knot

Stars Tie the Knot

This year has seen quite a few celebrity weddings

The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton took centre stage this year – but 2011 has seen a vintage crop of celebrities tying the knot

Prince Albert II of Monaco married South African former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock in a lavish royal ceremony to rival to rival even the future King of England.

A 3,500 guest-list saw royalty from around the world rubbing shoulders with political leaders and celebrities at the spectacular ceremony, held in the Prince’s palace.

It was a happy New Year for singer Shania Twain, as she rang in 2011 by becoming Mrs Frédéric Thiébaud. The couple wed at sunset on January 1, before 40 close friends and family at sunset on the beach in Rincon, Puerto Rico.

Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon and her agent Jim Toth married in a quiet ceremony on her luxury Libbey Ranch estate in California. The religious couple - who regularly attend church - decided on a traditional ceremony and tied the knot in front of 100 friends and family on the seven-acre site. Guests - including Renee Zellweger and Sean Penn - were treated to a pre-wedding cocktail hour.

Lily Allen married Sam Cooper at the village church in Cranham, Gloucestershire, close to their Cotswolds home. And not only was the singer celebrating becoming Mrs Cooper but her new husband announced she was also expecting a baby. Newlyweds and guests partied into the night, before the happy couple headed off to Glastonbury for a rock ‘n’ roll honeymoon.

Glamour model Kate Moss also got hitched to Jamie Hince of rock band The Kills while, last but not least, England footballer Peter Crouch wed long-term, and some may say long-suffering, partner Abbey Clancy.
