Trends in Celebrity Weddings
Celebrities have always set trends in various aspects of their lives, and weddings are no exception. In 2023, we're seeing a real shift towards more intimate and personalised wedding celebrations. Gone are the days of extravagant, over-the-top A-List weddings that seemed more like a production than a celebration of love. Instead, celebrities are opting for smaller, more meaningful gatherings that focus on the couple and their closest friends and family. These intimate affairs allow for a more relaxed and genuine atmosphere, where the couple can truly enjoy their special day without the prying eyes of the paparazzi.
