Wedding movie ceremonies can be an absolute dream. Behind the big screen lies years of hard work, teams of elite stylists and yes, lots of money. What better way to get some killer inspiration than to check out the most iconic wedding looks on the big screen to date? This wedding season we’ve complied our favourite cinematic hair and makeup visions that’ll have you snuggled up on your sofa for a movie marathon in your wedding dress – ice cream optional.

Two brides are better than one. Marilyn and Jane look like a dreamy (double) vision in short pin curls paired with a lace netting headband. This classic 50’s wedding hair style is perfect inspo for a vintage wedding. 

Vasundhara pulls off this stunning Indian wedding look with her bridal hair plaited up and adorned with jewels. And jewels are certainly not in shortage here with dozens of gold embellishments on her body and saree alike. Check out the beautiful Maang Tikka – a piece of pendant jewellery typically worn by Indian brides on their forehead. They are said to give the bride power, will and wisdom for her new journey in life.

If we can tear our eyes away from Jennifer’s eccentrically beautiful wedding dress for one second… Her character, Katniss Everdeen, wears her hair in a braided bun embellished with pearly, leaf-like accessories. Coupled with a smoky, bejewelled eye and shimmering lip, this look is one that’ll truly take your breath away.

Twilight’s Kristan Stewart wears her wedding hair in a classical romantic look: two plaits braided into a low plaited bun. A dreamy veil flows behind her attached to a diamond studded hair accessory. Kristan’s makeup is smoky and gothic, perfectly synchronising with her vampire husband.

Amanda Seyfried in Mamma Mia, 2008

Amanda flaunts a perfect beach wedding hair style, with gorgeous golden waves that tumble down her lacy tiered dress. A delicate, golden floral tiara sits on her head allowing her veil to fall perfectly around her beachy locks. If you’re lucky enough to be getting married somewhere warm, try hair extensions to recreate this sun-kissed look.

It may not be Christmas - yet - but it’s never too early to watch this classic flick for some 90’s wedding inspiration. Kiera wears her hair up in a feathered bun with wavy, face-framing hair strands. This understated look goes perfectly with a natural, soft makeup and subtle pink blush. Blushing brides are always beautiful!

From the classic Italian mob film, this traditional Sicilian wedding look has us begging for more. Simonetta wears her hair in intricate curls with an ornate, pearled veil on her head. Although this is undoubtedly a vintage look, this heavily laced ensemble will be inspiring for generations to come.
