Wedding season means weddings everywhere and celebrities aren’t excluded!
Our Australian (and international) celebrities have had some beautiful weddings this year- we thought we’d show some on Polka Dot Bride!

First up, a not so real wedding- the wedding of Peter Baker and Amanda Vale on Home and Away aired last night on Channel 7.
Holly Brisley who plays Amanda looked stunning in her Pallas Bridal gown covered with crystals. She wore no veil, instead wearing earrings from Nikki Kovesi were a feature. She wed Peter in a garden ceremony surrounded by family and friends.
Her bridesmaids were dressed in blush pink gowns by Messina (02 9698 5099), and finished with crystal jewelery and matching shoes.
The processional was by Katie Noonan and is called ‘Love’s My Song’. A beautiful ceremony- but in true Home and Away style was ruined by a sordid plan to make Amanda suffer (devised by her sister!)

Onto real life weddings, Getaway host Natalie Gruzlewski and Surfer Luke Egan wed on Australia’s Gold Coast, I love how Natalie stayed true to her beach girl look!
Ada Nicodemu, star of Channel 7’s Home and Away wed Chris Xipolitas in a huge 400 guest wedding in a Sydney Greek ceremony.
Ada wore a J’aton Couture gown rumoured to have cost $60,000 (most of that being the antique diamond and pearl brooch worn on the dress. Her bridesmaids were dressed in oyster coloured gowns. Ada was walked down the aisle by her mother and carried gardenias which held special significance to her.
Ada and Chris had a black, white and red ‘mad hatter’ style wedding cake as a nod to Chris’ support of football team the Sydney Swans. Their reception involved plenty of Greek dancing and eating at Sydney’s Shangri-La hotel.
Erica Heynatz (star of various Aussie TV shows such as It Takes Two, Australia’s Next Top Model, The Hothouse and more) wed Andrew Kingston in a small ceremony at Jonah’s overlooking Sydney’s Whale beach.
Erica wore two Alex Perry designed gowns- which he gifted to her, one a sleek fitted dress was worn for the ceremony, and a shorter, fun dress was worn for the reception. Erica and Andrew filled the reception with white flowers and danced the night away (in her sparkly Terry Biviano shoes!).
Finally, an international touch, Liz Hurley wed Arun Nayar.
Elton John walked Liz down the aisle of the celebrity filled ceremony in a castle at The Cotswalds, The couple then flew to India for a traditional Indian celebration.
Liz walked down the aisle to Vivaldi’s Gloria in a chapel filled with white blooms in a dress of micro pleats and shredded chiffon and tulle. Her bridal party consisted of her son Damian and other small members such as Elle Macpherson’s son, Cy.
Liz and Arun danced to ‘Can you feel the love tonight’ sung by Elton John as their first dance.
