Marry Like a Princess, Honeymoon Like a Queen
You don’t need to inherit a throne, have your own TV show or have slept in the White House to travel to a celeb-worthy destination. You just need to know where to look.
We're here to help with this round-up of luxurious destination wedding and honeymoon properties, the ultimate in locales frequented by the world's chicest newlyweds, from royals to rock stars.
Can't shake Will and Kate fever? Marrying at Westminster Abbey may be out of the question, but hosting a wedding event at The Goring Hotel, the century-old property that the Middleton clan commandeered before the royal nups, is decidedly doable. The 71-room hotel, just yards from Buckingham Palace, was also recently updated to prepare for the future Duchess of Cambridge's bridal party.
Or, take your royal watch one step further and honeymoon where the future King of England took his bride: the Seychelles, an archipelago of islands off the coast of Kenya. While their exact locale in Seychelles is still a palace secret, it's not hard to imagine them at the luxurious Banyan Tree Seychelles, a property truly fit for royalty.
If a fashionable destination wedding in the spirit of "Mosstock," the unofficial label given to the three-day affair that Kate Moss and new hubby James Hince hosted at her estimated $3 million home in the rolling hills near Gloucestershire, England, is your speed, then consider renting one of many darling cottages in the Cotswolds available on HomeAway.com, a trusted vacation home rental site.
Don't let the lack of luxury hotels in the area fool you. The verdant region is filled with celebrity neighbors like Stella McCartney, Damien Hirst, Kate Winslet and J. K. Rowling, who all call the Cotswolds home.
Then, take off on a honeymoon that follows Moss and Hince's jetsetting ways. Don't have a pal like Top Shop owner Sir Philip Green to lend you a yacht? Book your own intimate luxury yacht tour of the Mediterranean, including Corsica, with Variety Cruises.
