21 Unusual Celebrity Weddings


It’s only safe to assume that celebrities (being the ever so interesting folk that we can’t help but gossip about) lead rather interesting lives. With that being said, it’s logical to expect that celebrity couples begin their lives together in the most fascinating, unusual and sometimes, the most absurd of ways.

Whether it involves wild animals, nudity, singing choirs, million-dollar bills or unexpected situations that feature none of the above, celebrity weddings are events that attract tons of attention. Let’s see which 21 ceremonies were the most unusual:

1. Arun Nayar and Elizabeth Hurley

When you have two wedding ceremonies on two different continents, you know that the party is going to be crazy and the tab is bound to be high. Business tycoon Arun Nayar really wanted to impress his to-be-wife Elizabeth by organizing one of the most lavish and activity-packed weddings in history. Too bad that all the millions of dollars he spent organizing the ceremony weren’t enough to keep the pair running a stable marriage more than a year and a half.

First they had a civil ceremony at Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, Gloucestershire. They held a blessing and party at the castle the following night. After that, Hurley found herself going from Hollywood to Bollywood when she tied the knot in a second ceremony, wearing a pink sari at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur. While the ceremony was short, the party lasted for an entire week and included Hindu rituals, dancing white horses, elaborately painted elephants, camels and horses, massive sandstone structures and floors covered in thousands of red, hot chili peppers (no, not the band).
