T’is the season to do roundups, fa la la la la la la la! We’re mid-December already, folks, which means there are barely two weeks left to say “Bye Felicia!” to 2018 and “How you doin’?” to 2019. But while we daydream over what this new year shall bring, let’s take a look back at what 2018 brought us, shall we? And I’ll tell you what it brought us—Weddings. A whole lot of weddings!
You know how one minute everything’s fine and the next minute all your friends are getting married and you’re lost, navigating so many functions and outfits? Well, that’s exactly what happened to celebs this year!
From British royals to Bollywood royalty to the India’s richest man’s daughter, so many of them tied the knot this year, drowning us in FOMO and supplying oxygen with nicely coordinated social media posts!
If you had a hard time keeping up with all the photos and videos, imagine how tough it must’ve bene for these celebs to actually be a part of them! Especially this December, where it is pretty much raining weddings!
So peeps, here’s an almost chronological roundup of celeb weddings that we hope you didn’t miss in 2018! And if you did, well, here’s a recap!
The list literally includes at least one wedding for every month of the year, except January and July! Check it out!
1. Antara Motiwala and Mohit Marwah
One of the young guns of the Kapoor brood, Mohit Marwah tied the knot with girlfriend Antara Motiwala in Ras al-Khaimah, UAE. The wedding festivities were spread over a couple of days, sangeet et al., and was a fabulous big fat Punjabi wedding to the T!
It was also one of the last times the world caught a glimpse of Sridevi, before she was taken from us.
2. Pankhuri Awasthi and Gautam Rode
OMG! Do you remember when TV heartthrob Gautam Rode and wife Pankhuri Awasthy recreated the Dil Diyaan Gallan magic for their sangeet?
Their wedding too was one big fairytale and they looked so in love!
3. Dipika Kakar and Shoaib Ibrahim
4. Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira

Designed by the peeps @devikanarainandcompany and photographed by us! As for the photo, I know these two aren't cheesy romantics at all, but how can you not melt looking at the love in their eyes. This was a real moment shot right during their jaimala on a rainy goan evening. 😍 This is Joe reporting all the way from Hyd, with the team from Goa – @sprinkledwords, @nikibhasin, @mohamedjameer, DD and @shivalichopra #gocheetagetbattata
14. Rose Leslie and Kit Harington
You know nothing if you don’t remember the beautiful wedding that Game of Thrones stars Kit Harington and Rose Leslie had this year! Jon Snow and Ygritte’s wildling on-screen romance may not have had a happy ending, but off-screen it was simply perfection! And their GOT costars where there to celebrate too!
15. Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook
Sheldon and Amy’s wedding wasn’t the only big bang that happened this year! Kaley Cuoco aka Penny from The Big Bang Theory said “I do” to boyfriend Karl Cook, and their ranch wedding was one of the most stunning things you’ll see!

Telly darlings Yuvika Chaudhary and Prince Narula’s love story had a happy beginning with their nuptials! And their sangeet and wedding ceremonies were full on dhamaal like you’d see in any Punjabi wedding!
19. Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh
We are all going to remember this year as the year jab Ram aur Leela ek ho gaye! First they gave us so much FOMO with their super private wedding ceremony in the stunning Lake Como, Italy. And then, it was like an avalanche of mehendi and wedding photos!
For DeepVeer, it has just been one epic party since their shaadi! And fans can’t get enough of their loving speeches for each other and dance videos!
20. Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber being off the market must’ve been a shocker for his fangirls, but the man is happily and sappily married to the gorgeous Hailey Baldwin! The couple continue to stack up PDA goals on Instagram!

21. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas
Jiji aur Jija ko badhaai ho badhaai! More important than perhaps even the royal wedding for the world this year was Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ fairytale wedding! The couple’s nuptials at Umaid Bhawan Palace were something out of a Hollywood princess movie!
The wedding videos pretty much made even the stone hearted shed a silent tear of joy because it was that beautiful! And that sangeet was like an awards’ night, wasn’t it?
Not to mention we had a Bollywood–Game of Thrones crossover with Sophie Turner being part of the bridal squad.
The couple held their first reception in Delhi that was attended by PM Narendra Modi amongst others.
And now NickYanka are all set to host another reception for PeeCee’s Bollywood fam in Mumbai on December 20! Cannot wait!
22. Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal
Could Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s shaadi possibly be the most expensive wedding ever? Well that $100 million price tag sure makes it look like that!
When the daughter of India’s richest man got hitched, Beyoncé performed, Bollywood stars danced and the Bachchans and Khans served food to the wedding guests! And that’s still just the tip of the iceberg!
The couple’s pre-wedding festivities were one insane party at The Oberoi Udailvilas in Udaipur. The star-studded wedding took place in Antilia, and multiple receptions were hosted at Jio Gardens in BKC, Mumbai.
I mean, invitation card dekh ke hi pata chal gaya tha that this shaadi was going to be a memorable one!
23. Ginni Chatrath and Kapil Sharma
India’s favourite comedian Kapil Sharma married girlfriend Ginni Chatrath last week in a full-to Punjabi wedding in Jalandhar! The couple too had fabulous invitations sent out and their telly friends were all there for their special day!
Kapil sure knows how to throw a party!
24. Natalie Di Luccio and Raghu Ram
When the man who asks everyone “Tu Roadie banega?” was asked “Tu husband banega?”, he said yes! Raghu Ram’s life this year has gone through a lot of changes. First, he and ex-wife Sugandha Garg threw a divorce party to announce their amicable separation. Then engagement to Canadian singer girlfriend Natalie Di Luccio happened in August. And finally, the couple tied the knot last week!
It was a gorgeous beach wedding in Goa and the pictures are so delightful!

Game, set, match! Saina Nehwal and Parupalli Kashyap were a match made on the badminton court! The score was love-love when the couple tied the knot in Hyderabad last weekend!
Their love story and impending marriage was no secret, they’d been seeing each other for almost 10 years, and watching them put a ring on it was rather beautiful!
The couple’s reception was also held at Novotel Hyderabad last night with the likes of Nagarjuna, Rakul Preet Singh and Urvashi Rautela in attendance.
Phew! Wasn’t that one heck of a year for weddings? But don’t get tired just yet, because lots of rumoured weddings, from Arjun-Malaika to Varun Dhawan and GF Natasha Dalal could suddenly become legit! And don’t forget, there’s another Ambani wedding pending! Now where’s my Sabyasachi lehenga?
