2nd November 2021

People love taking inspiration from their favourite celebrities, whether it’s royals or popstars, actors or influencers, the UK are fascinated with celebrity culture. We love having sneak peeks into their homes for interior inspiration, following their fashion trends and being inspired by their elaborately dreamy weddings.
Here at Diamonds Factory, we were curious to learn which celebrities had the most-searched-for weddings. We also wanted to know how much their incredible weddings cost, where they got married and, of course, who designed the all-important dress. Keep reading to discover our findings.
Most-Searched-For Weddings (UK searches - ranked by average monthly searches) and Wedding Cost
From our research, we learned that the most searched for wedding in 2021 was Ant McPartlin’s wedding! He tied the knot to Anne-Marie Corbett on August 7th 2021 in front of 100 guests in Heckfield Place, Hampshire. Before they started dating, Anne-Marie was employed as Ant’s personal assistant, and her two daughters from a previous marriage played a big part as bridesmaids on their special day. As you might expect, Ant’s TV counterpart and best friend of 27 years, Declan Donnelly, was the best man for the ceremony.
Despite tying the knot on the 29th of April 2011, ‘Kate Middleton’s wedding’ is still the second most-searched wedding in the UK in 2021, with around 2,900 average searches a month. We can’t think of a better place to get wedding inspiration than a royal wedding!
Coming in at third place is Michelle Keegan who got married to her husband Mark Wright back on the 24th of May 2015. The Corrie actress and Towie star tied the knot in Hengrave Hall, Suffolk, with a lavish ceremony and reception, which still holds a place front of mind for many brides today.
Most-Searched-For Weddings - Venues in the UK
So, where exactly did the most searched-for weddings take place? Diamonds Factory has got the list of the most exclusive and sought-after wedding venues in 2021.
From Marylebone, London, to Luttrellstown Castle, Ireland, the most searched weddings took place at a variety of stunning venues across the UK. The cost of a wedding reception at these esteemed venues will vary significantly depending on the date, the number of guests and the room you choose.
Most Searched-For Wedding Dresses
Wedding dresses are a search term all of their own, and for good reason! If you’re planning your wedding, you will undoubtedly search for your favourite celebs dresses for inspiration, where they’re from and if they are affordable. Diamonds Factory has done the hard work for you and found the dress designers for the most searched wedding dresses and the hefty price tags they come with.
Unsurprisingly, Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen gown made history at the royal wedding, costing somewhere around £355,000. The price tag on Kate’s dress makes Gwen Stefani’s £25,000 gown seem reasonably priced by comparison. But, Gwen Stefani adorned not one but two gorgeous ivory Vera Wang’s for her recent wedding to Blake Shelton - quite different from the pink dress she wore to her previous wedding.
The cost of Michelle Keegan’s dress was estimated to be around £13,000 based on the usual prices of Galia Lahav’s bespoke couture dresses.
