The COVID-19 pandemic has changed several things, one of them being weddings. And although these special events may look a bit different these days, it doesn’t mean that they’re not still happening. In fact, even celebrities are still having their dream weddings. If you’re planning your own wedding, you can draw inspiration from some of these real-life celebrity weddings in bringing your own vision to life.

It took place in a low-key manner in July at The Royal Chapel of All Saints at Windsor Great Park in Berkshire, England. The couple was originally set to wed in May. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip (the bride’s grandparents) were proud onlookers on the big day, despite the fact that it was a small affair.
