Anne and Adam married in Big Sur, California
Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman’s Californian countryside celebration
She claimed her commitments to two multi-million pound movies would prevent her tying the knot this year, but it seems nothing stands in the way of true love as actress Anne Hathaway married her long-term boyfriend this weekend.
The Dark Knight Rises star wed Adam Shulman in the picture-perfect town of Big Sur, a stunning costal resort in California that also hosted the nuptials of Natalie Portman back in August. In keeping with the unspoilt beauty of the venue, the ceremony and reception were said to have been decked out with nature-inspired décor and Anne and Adam are reported to have called on the assistance of the same wedding planner who helped Natalie create her dream day.
Anne wore a vintage-inspired tulle and chiffon gown, created for her by designer Valentino. The off-the-shoulder confection featured a delicate lace skirt with a frothy floral-strewn tulle overlay. A wide lace headpiece with a flowing veil covered her cropped hair do and she carried a small posy of pastel flowers. Her new husband looked smart in a traditional tuxedo.

When your husband-to-be is a millionaire there’s no need to worry about the wedding budget! So it’s no surprise Holly Valance’s big day was crammed with super-luxe style and all the fairytale details a girl could dream of.
The ex-Neighbours actress and property developer Nick Candy exchanged vows under the Beverly Hills sunshine surrounded by 300 guests said to include X Factor supremo Simon Cowell and Sir Elton John. A series of slick black minibuses transported guests to a secret location to witness the happy event and pop star Katy Perry is reported to have performed at the reception.
Holly wore an ornate J’Aton Couture gown with a slim-line lace bodice and shredded lace and tulle skirt decorated with sparkling silver embroidery. She completed the look with a dramatic cathedral-length veil edged with scalloped lace and a compact bouquet of burgundy lillies. The groom looked dapper in a Dolce & Gabbana tuxe with midnight-blue velvet jacket.
The pair are believed to have planned a whole weekend of activities for their guests, hosting a rehearsal dinner on Friday night at Paramount Studios. Nick is understood to have flown in the cast of West End musical Jersey Boys (Holly’s favourite show) to entertain guests and surprised his bride-to-be with a recording of the song The Most Beautiful Girl In The World featuring her friends and family. A relaxed barbecue and pool party followed on Sunday at a plush Beverly Hills mansion.
Cat and Pat made it official in an Italian ceremony
Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty’s secret Italian love affair
Whispers of their engagement only reached us in August but it seems Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty just couldn’t wait to say ‘I do.’ The low-key couple are said to have wed this weekend in Rome during an intimate celebration at St Isidore’s College Chapel in the romantic Italian capital. With just close family and friends present, the ceremony is thought to have been officiated by Patrick’s parish priest who flew in from Belfast especially to marry the happy couple.
The pair met in 2002 while filming Fame Academy for the BBC and remained firm friends before enjoying a few secret dates at the beginning of 2012. Cat and Pat only went public with their relationship in May this year with rumours of a whirlwind engagement surfacing a few months later.
