Celebrity weddings come and go, to be ogled at through computer and iPhone screens. But once in a while, a certain ceremony or reception strikes a more memorable chord—this aesthetic, that dress, and that magical setting. You become a little (or a lot) obsessed, dreaming now of one venue and one venue alone. So for those who have fallen prey to the siren song of a certain nuptials seen the world over, we have good news for you. Some of the most stunning wedding settings—the palazzo where Amal and George Clooney married, the French chateau where Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas said “I do”—are actually available to rent. Here, we rounded up 10 of the most beautiful celebrity wedding locations for you and your betrothed to consider. Victoria Beckham chose a castle in Ireland. What will you pick?
Aman Canal Grande, Venice, Italy
From the caravans of water taxis to the bride’s (many) wardrobe changes, Mr. and Mrs. Clooney’s fall 2014 nuptials was a multi-day event to remember. But the main affair was held in the Aman Canal Grande hotel in Venice, a 16th-century palazzo that boasts wall paintings by Venetian master Tiepolo. What else does the hotel have to offer the recently engaged? Two private gardens, a dining room with two sections, and a salon are just a few of the rooms available for use on your special day.
Ventana Big Sur, Big Sur, California
Despite the perilous Highway 1 drive, Big Sur is worth the trek. Anne Hathaway (swathed in a white and pink Valentino gown) married Adam Shulman at Ventana Big Sur, one of the area’s most beautiful places to stay. For weddings in particular, though, Ventana can fit as many as 150 guests, and there are two outdoor options for the ceremony itself. The hotel also includes a spa, where the bridal party can get ready.
Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland
Victoria and David Beckham were married at Luttrellstown Castle just outside Dublin, Ireland. And as far as fairy-tale wedding venues go, a castle is hard to beat. At Luttrellstown, the Van Stry ballroom accommodates as many as 120 guests, while the Kentian room can fit 100 for the ceremony itself. And in addition, the castle has 12 bedrooms for you, and perhaps your bridal party, to stay.
Villa Pizzo, Lake Como, Italy
If the northern Italy wedding of George and Amal piqued your interest the most—but Venice isn’t quite worth the hassle—consider Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s Lake Como–set event. Villa Pizzo is perched on the lake itself, so it’s an ideal venue for outdoor ceremonies.
Flora Farm, Los Cabos, Mexico
Flower-filled garden weddings are not unusual. But for those truly obsessed with all things flowering, green, and growing, Flora Farm
in Los Cabos, Mexico, is likely your ideal venue. Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo wed Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine at this special spot, no doubt lured by its beauty and menu options. The establishment’s Flora Grocery—where visitors can also just grab a sandwich if they find themselves on the go—evidences the farm’s focus on food.
La Mamounia, Marrakech, Morocco
Marrakech’s storied La Mamounia served as the location for Poppy Delevingne and James Cook’s second wedding ceremony, and is the ultimate experience when it comes to destination weddings. Between its spa, pools, and garden grounds—not to mention its Moorish architectural details—this luxury resort is a visual delight. Doubting the hype? Assouline has even published a book on it.
Greyfield Inn, Cumberland Island, Georgia
For their 1996 wedding, John F. Kennedy, Jr. and Carolyn Bessette selected a secluded spot to ensure privacy. For the ceremony itself on Cumberland Island, Georgia, the couple chose the First African Baptist Church, a small local chapel. However, when it came to the reception, bride, groom, and guests moved along to the Greyfield Inn. This charming and somewhat beachy inn maintains its Southern style with gorgeous live oaks on the property and has a list of local recommended florists and photographers to consider. So if you don’t have a full PR team helping you plan, fear not.
Borgo Egnazia, Puglia, Italy
Puglia, otherwise known as the heel of Italy’s boot, is a beautiful yet often underrated travel destination. So in other words, it’s a perfect location for an unexpected destination wedding. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake chose the region’s five-star resort Borgo Egnazia for their wedding—where the bride memorably wore a pink strapless voluminous gown. With rooms or villas as accommodations, and a range of classes that guests can sign up for (golf, fishing, photography, and even mixology are all offered), your wedding guests are sure to more than enjoy their stay.
San Ysidro Ranch, Montecito, California
For their California cool nuptials, Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger chose Montecito’s San Ysidro Ranch. It’s a property that already has ties to Schwarzenegger’s family: John and Jackie Kennedy honeymooned there in 1953. The rustic chic ranch is nestled in the foothills of Santa Ynez Mountains, and overlooks the Pacific ocean. Its 500 acres play host to lemon and orange trees, and an abundance of lavender.
Brush Creek Ranch, Saratoga, Wyoming
Brush Creek Ranch was the recent site of not one, but two celebrity weddings: Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen in 2015, and Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner in 2019. The expansive Saratogoa, Wyoming property is a whopping 30,000 acres and includes several homesteads, a glamping ground, and lots and lots of horses. It’s perfect for any outdoorsy and active couple: Kloss and Kushner, for example, went paintballing and ATVing during their stay.
Chateau de Tourreau, Provence, France
For their second wedding, Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner chose Chateau de Tourreau in Provence. The historic 18th century chateau is the epitome of Provencal grandeur, with its gilded interiors, sculpture gardens, and bubbling fountains. It’s available through Airbnb Luxe, the company’s luxury tier that offers over 2,000 over-the-top properties.
Contemporary Arts Center, New Orleans
“Painting and art is something I’m really passionate about, so it just felt natural and different to do it at a contemporary art museum,” Serena Williams said of her choice to wed at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans. The unique space offers anyone the chance to hold an event there for the night.
Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany, Italy
Both Kate Upton and Caroline Wozniacki held their weddings at Castiglion del Bosco in Tuscany. The estate and vineyard, owned by the Ferragamo family, hosts the five-star Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco hotel on its grounds. A bonus with this reception location? You know the wine will be excellent.
