I think we can all agree that 2018 was one heck of a roller coaster ride and it wasn’t all pleasant. But this is the year where some of our favorite celebrities got married and found bliss, proving that as long as there’s love in this world, everything will be alright. Take a look back at the romantic and breathtaking celebrity (and royal) weddings that took place this year.
Christian Bautista and Kat Ramnani
Singer/songwriter Christian Bautista and telecommunications executive Kat Ramnani had an intimate and beautiful wedding ceremony last November 17 in Bali, the place where they first flew out of the country as a couple. The picturesque wedding happened at the glass-paneled Luhur Chapel, atop a pool, with the most breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean. Check out the photos here, fair warning though, you might be tempted to plan your own wedding after you read the article!
Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie
Every fan’s dream is to watch their favorite series couple get married in real life, and Game of Thrones actors Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Rose Leslie (Ygritte) just made that dream come true. The couple tied the knot in a lovely wedding in Scotland last June 23. The ceremony took place in Aberdeen Scotland’s small Rayne Church and was attended by their fellow Game of Thrones actors including Sophie Turner (Sansa Stark), Maisie Williams (Arya Stark), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen), and Richard Madden (Robb Stark) to name a few.
Kai Honasan and Eco Del Rio
Those active in the OPM music scene or frequent gigs know of the romance between Kai Honasan, Autotelic member, and Eco Del Rio, Chicosci’s bassist. The lovely couple got married last May 6 at the Sofitel Plaza Philippines in a wedding ceremony attended by their friends and family including familiar faces in the music industry. Ben&Ben even made a song for them! You can listen to it here.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle (Duke and Duchess of Sussex)
The 2018 wedding scene was probably defined by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding back in May. It was held at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle and was broadcasted live and watched by millions of viewers all over the world. Meghan, a well-known actress, glowed in her gown designed by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy. Her veil, representing distinctive flora from all 53 Commonwealth Countries, was held in place by Queen Mary’s diamond bandeau tiara, lent by The Queen.
It was star-studded, it was extravagant, it was romantic, and it was just what everyone needed.
Rob Mananquil and Maxene Magalona
From the boho-themed pre-wedding party to the all-white wedding ceremony by the white sand beach of Boracay, Rob and Maxene’s nuptials are one of the most fun and beautiful weddings this year. But did you know that before their wedding in Boracay, Rob and Max had an intimate church wedding with their family and a few of their closest friends? Both weddings were meticulously and beautifully planned from guests’ outfits to the minute details of the reception definitely setting the standards high for everyone!
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
Yes, people, Justin Bieber, the kid you were annoyed with for the longest time is now all grown up and married. Justin and model/actress Hailey Baldwin (now Hailey Bieber) reportedly got married back in September in a quiet and private courthouse ceremony in New York City. Fans didn’t have confirmation for a long time, but now Bieber’s Instagram says it all.
He posted a photo captioned “First Thanksgiving as a married man” and another with Hailey captioned “My wonderful wife.” You can almost hear the hearts of millions of thirteen-year-olds simultaneously being crushed. It’s true, he’s married! Best wishes to the lovely couple!
Billy Crawford and Coleen Garcia
It’s Showtime hosts and actors Billy and Coleen had a wedding held at the luxurious Balesin Beach Club last April 20. Flowers were overflowing, scattered and grouped everywhere complimenting the white-themed occasion. Coleen looked stunning walking down the aisle in a gown designed by Israeli Galia Lahav while Billy looked equally dashing tearing up when Coleen made her walk.
The couple also had a beautiful nautical-inspired despedida de soltera held for Coleen the night before proving that it was a really well-thought-out event with the finest attention to detail.

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra
In what’s now considered as Hollywood’s version of the royal wedding, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra had extravagant double wedding ceremonies in India, a Christian ceremony on Dec. 1 and a Hindu ceremony on Dec. 2 both at the Taj Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.
They officially first met at the Oscars after party last year where, in a funny romantic story, Nick got down on one knee in public and asked Priyanka where she had been all his life. Prior to the encounter, they have already been texting for quite a few months. A year later in July, Nick proposed to Priyanka during a birthday vacation in Greece and the rest is a well-documented love story on Instagram.
