Planning a wedding has been nigh on impossible following the pandemic, but with restrictions set to ease this summer, why not look to your favourite celebrity nuptials for inspiration?

Whether you're planning an intimate woodland ceremony like Joe Wicks, want to copy Holly Willoughby's pastel colour scheme or you're still totally in love with Millie Mackintosh's balloon archway, keep scrolling to get some wedding inspiration for summer – we're talking wedding dresses, venues and more…


Vogue Williams

Vogue Williams and Spencer Matthews enjoyed a simple outdoor ceremony back in June 2018. Instead of splashing out on an expensive wedding venue, they exchanged vows on the banks of the picturesque loch on Spencer's family's 30,000-acre estate – which was just as picturesque!

Take cues from Charlotte Casiraghi and swap the traditional bouquet for your own handpicked seasonal flowers for a more relaxed finishing touch to your bridal look. Princess Grace's granddaughter clutched a bouquet of lilac at her second wedding to Dimitri Rassam in June 2019.

Victoria Beckham

If you're having a more low-key affair or want a slightly more unusual outfit, then look no further than Victoria Beckham for inspiration. The fashion designer wore two wedding dresses when she married David Beckham in 1999 – and neither were white! She started with a strapless Vera Wang satin ballgown in a champagne colour before changing into a vibrant purple one-shoulder dress that matched David's suit.

Joe Wicks

The Body Coach and his bride proved you don't need to spend a fortune on a lavish wedding venue when they married in June 2019, choosing instead to get married in a magical woodland ceremony before hosting a festival-inspired reception in a field, complete with fairground rides and street food stalls. A fun alternative to a formal summer wedding.

Planning a beach wedding? You can still create a pretty focal point for your ceremony with a flower-trimmed frame or archway, like Joel Dommett and Hannah Cooper did at their nuptials in Mykonos in September.

Holly Willoughby

This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby married Dan Baldwin in August 2007, and shared details of her big day on the ITV show. We love how Holly and her groom created a pretty summer-ready colour scheme, with Dan wearing a pink tie and pocket square to match the bride's bouquet and venue flowers.

There's so much we love about Fearne Cotton's wedding – from the summer-ready yellow blooms to her gorgeous tea-length wedding dress that features sparking sequin embellishment. The bride showed how important it is to stay true to your own style on your wedding day, and to inject your own personality into the nuptials.

The summer weather gave Millie Mackintosh and Hugo Taylor the opportunity to marry outdoors, but they still ensured they had a stunning backdrop for their ceremony with a unique floral and balloon arch surrounding the doors of their venue. Meanwhile, Millie had a clever way to transform her bespoke Kate Halfpenny gown from day to night; the bubble sleeves could be removed leaving the stunning strapless gown for the evening reception.

A crown made from fresh flowers makes a beautiful accessory for summer brides, as Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie proved when she married Kit Harington in June 2018. The hair accessory complemented her simple bouquet, and added the perfect finishing touch to her wavy bob hairstyle.

Peter Andre and his wife Emily emphasised the dramatic beauty of their wedding venue by installing floral garlands up the staircase in their reception hall, with an array of pink and cream blooms as the table centrepieces.

The couple got married at Mamhead House and Castle in Devon, and Peter later revealed he hopes to replicate parts of their big day for their ten-year wedding anniversary. "We had African musicians and Greek and Irish music and it was brilliant," he said.

Ronan Keating and his wife Storm found clever ways to pay homage to their families and backgrounds on their wedding day in Scotland in August 2015. This included a nod to Storm's native Australia through the wedding flowers, including a floral arch made from silver birch branches and decorated with garden roses, hydrangea and scented eucalyptus.

Proving the adage, 'your day, your way', Robbie Williams and Ayda Field shunned lavish wedding venues in favour of tying the knot at their own home in Los Angeles, a place that they felt safe and could involve their beloved pet dogs into the ceremony.

Guy Ritchie's wife Jacqui Ainsley made a gorgeous summer bride when they married at their Wiltshire estate in 2015, wearing a colourful flower crown that complemented the floral arch they had constructed for their outdoor ceremony. The couple made the most of the summer weather by turning their nuptials into their very own festival, with several marquees on their lawn, and tents set up for celebrity guests including David Beckham and Brad Pitt.
