Fabulous celebrity weddings of 2011

I know 2012 has just started, but let's have a look back at 2011, and some of the fabulous celebrity weddings that took place throughout the year.
First out was singer Shania Twain, who in January married her business man Frederic Thiebaud on a beach in Puerto Rico. 
A small and simple wedding - beautiful!

Reese Witherspoon married her agent Jim Toth on her luxury ranch in March. 
It was a traditional ceremony, and Reese walked down the aisle in a custom made Monique Lhuillier gown.

The biggest 2011 celebrity wedding in the UK belonged to Prince William and Kate Middleton, and this special occasion occurred in April. The day even became a bank holiday for us people in England! Beautiful Kate was wearing a stunning, royal looking gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.

A pregnant Lily Allen married Sam Cooper in June. The bride showed off a tiny bump under her lace wedding dress, which was designed by Delphine Manivet. When it came to the choice of wedding headpieces, I think Lily went a bit over the top with these extremely big flowers on each side of her head. It looked like teddy bear ears!

Ugly Betty-actress America Ferrera finally married her longtime boyfriend Ryan Piers in June, in a dress by Amsale's Christos label.

Super famous model Kate Moss and musician-boyfriend Jamie Hince tied the knot on the 1st of July in a picturesque little village. The dress was designed by John Galliano, who apparently is a close friend to Kate.

Reality TV star Kim Kardashian got hitched with basketball player Kris Humphries in August, wearing a gorgeous custom made Vera Wang gown. Her engagement ring was worth $2 million dollars, and just like her bling was over-the-top - so was the wedding. Many call this the wedding of the year with lots of a-list Hollywood celebs on the guest list. Too bad the marriage didn't last for more than 72 days... 

The old Beatles-member Paul McCartney married American heiress Nancy Shevell in October. It was a simple ceremony that took place at a register office in London, and the bride was wearing a knee-length dress designed by Paul's designer daughter Stella McCartney.

I know it's not a real wedding, but it's only fictional - but the wedding of Twilight characters Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) is one of the most talked about weddings of 2011. Bella was wearing a dress by wedding dress designer veteran Carolina Herrera, with a gorgeous lace and tulle back in an oval shape. Very classy and sophisticated. I especially liked Bella's bridal hair accessories, which consisted of a small veil and an antique looking sparkly comb to hold it in place.
