25th April 2009 - Venice
The Serenissima is renowned as one of the most romantic destinations of all for weddings in Italy, so it is no surprise that Salma Hayek and her husband decided to renew their vows here in a star-studded celebration after their small, intimate wedding in Paris in 2008.
Keeping in theme with their Venetian surroundings, the couple celebrated a masked ball rehearsal dinner on Friday 24th April in an old Venetian custom house, with invitees such as Charlize Theron, Bono, Penelope Cruz and even former French president Jacques Chirac to be seen wandering the streets of Venice before and after the event. According to People magazine, for the wedding itself, which took place on Saturday 25th April, the bride wore a stunning Balenciaga wedding gown with a long veil and carried a simple white bouquet of orchids and stephanotis with crystals. The charms of this beautiful, watery city made for a beautiful celebrity wedding, and we are sure that Venice is a wonderful place for all kinds of weddings, and a stunning honeymoon destination.
