Since weddings are becoming outrageously popular, we thought you might be interested to see some celebrity couples from the golden years on their wedding days. While you can catch a glimpse of old school wedding ceremonies, you can also explore the stunning dresses worn by the brides of the yesteryear. Let’s start!
Brigitte Bardot & Roger Vadim, 1952
During the ’50s and ’60s, Brigitte Bardot was a popular feminine symbol. She is a French actress and singer who is now in her mid-80s, enjoying her retirement. However, she continues to fight for animal rights. At only 18 years of age, the And God Created Woman star married Roger Vadim.
Vadim was a French screenwriter and filmmaker, who was known for winning the hearts of gorgeous actresses during his time. For their wedding held during the Christmas month, Bardot wore a stunning, fully covered white dress created by Madame Ogive, the dressmaker on the Rue de Passy. After his five-year-long marriage to Bardot ended, Vadim married four other women.
Jane Fonda & Roger Vadim, 1965
Jane Fonda is now an 82-year-old actress who’d won many awards over the course of her career. During her adolescence, Fonda was so beautiful that it opened up the opportunity for her to become a model. In the late ’60s, following her portrayal of the title character in Barbarella, she became a feminine symbol.
During this time, Fonda was already married to the French film director Roger Vadim. Their wedding took place at the Dunes Hotel in Las Vegas on August 14, 1965. Fonda gave birth to a daughter before the couple split in 1973.
Elizabeth Taylor & Michael Wilding, 1952
Here we have another one of Elizabeth Taylor’s many husbands, Michael Wilding. He was a British actor who had a career as an extra and playing support roles until the lead role in Dear Octopus gave him the breakthrough he was longing for.
Contrary to her first wedding, Taylor’s wedding with Wilding was only a small ceremony held at Caxton Hall in 1952. They had two sons together, but since Wilding was 20 years older, as the years went by, Taylor lost her interest in her second husband. After announcing their separation in 1956, the two divorced a year later.
