We love the relaxed romantic style of Bond girl, Gemma Arterton, who married Italian Stefano Catelli in Spain this weekend. Her vintage style wedding ideas are worth noting, even if you can’t find castle ruins for the ceremony, or rely on the British weather to hold out!

Bedroom eyes – Gemma’s inspiration for finding the perfect dress was based on the fact that her finace loves her most when she wakes up first thing in the morning wrapped up in the bedsheets… If you don’t know where to start when choosing your dress, visit a Worn Once wedding dress showroom to try a selection of new or nearly new dresses for bargain prices.

Red carpet hair – Gemma’s vintage style wedding hair is pulled back into a loose chignon, a favourite with hollywood’s leading ladies – and finished with a long veil clipped low in her hair.

Play with light – Keep the colour scheme light and breezy to compliment the Mediterranean heat – displays of white and green are simple but effective, whilst hydrangeas create large dsiplays with just a few blooms.

Keep your cool – Help guests shelter from the sun at an outdoor wedding by providing paper parasols. If you have some white umbrellas to hand they will do come rain or shine!

We love that Gemma kept her wedding a personal family affair and was inspired by things personal to her and Stefano when designing her look. You can see photo’s of Gemma and Stefano’s wedding here

Not all celebrities want the huge weddings with hundreds of other stars in attendance. This weekend Milla Jovovich married her long time partner director Paul Anderson in an intimate affair in the back garden of their home Beverly Hills.

Dress: Milla walked down the aisle in a full length retro-inspired white gown which she had designed, taking inspiration from the 1960’s & Grecian. For Grecian influenced gowns, try the Lorelei dress wear-again style from Motasem

Flowers: A hand tied white orchid bouquet mixed with roses is a classic bridal design. If you are concerned about the milage, ask your florist to source locally grown, or you may want to consider white flowers that are seasonal to the date of your wedding.

Hair: Milla let her hair loose in an ethereal style, with headband of twisted leaves with a medieval influence. Remember to consider your face shape when choosing your hairstyle, and how it will work with the dress. It was a pity you couldn’t see the detail on Milla’s dress as her hair covered the beaded panels…

To go with their Spanish-style house, Milla & Paul had a latin style occasion with a Spanish flamenco guitarist during the cocktail reception, then a Cuban band afterwards.

However worth the wait, I’m not sure I would have coped with a six year engagement.
