We love a good wedding. And 2014 really came through for us, doling up a myriad of celebrity nuptials to pour over. 

From ceremonies abroad such as Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's £7 million extravaganza in Italy, or Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's small family affair in France, to Elton John and David Furnish's recent registry office marriage, we take a look at the best and most incredible A-list nuptials of the year.

    Kim's bridesmaids included all of her sisters; Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie. However, brother Rob decided not to attend in the end as it was thought he didn't want to be photographed. Overall the wedding is thought to have cost around $12 million (£7 million), with Kim's wedding dress alone costing $500,000 (£320,000).  

  • Poppy Delevingne and James Cook's wedding

    MAY: When you can count Karl Lagerfeld as a close family friend, you know that you can call on him to rejig one of his dresses for your wedding. Which is exactly what model Poppy Delevingne did when she married long-term love James Cook in London on May 16. The Chanel gown had originally been worn by none other than Blake Lively on the red carpet back in 2011 but Poppy chose to wear it for her nuptials in May of this year.
