Unsure of where to go on your honeymoon? Why not be inspired by your favourite celebrities’ choice of honeymoon to help you decide where to jet off to.
Reese Witherspoon and Jim Toth
Legally Blonde actress Reese Witherspoon followed her wedding to agent Jim Toth with a romantic Italian honeymoon.
The newlyweds chose to celebrate their marriage on Italy’s scenic Amalfi Coast. They stayed in Positano, a super-scenic town where they went on boat rides around the bay. The couple were spotted browsing local shops stocking up on Italian classic including limoncello and hand painted ceramics, as well as enjoying the local cuisine during long romantic dinners.
Other celebs who have honeymooned in Italy: Lauren Bush and David Lauren, Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, Lauren Conrad and William Tell, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend
Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
The Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine whisked his new bride, model Behati Prinsloo, on a romantic honeymoon to South Africa where they posed for selfies and played golf. It’s likely that they chose the exciting destination as it was close to Behati’s home country of Namibia.
Other celebs who chose Africa for their honeymoon: Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds, Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr
Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr honeymooned in Anguilla, a small Caribbean island which boasts 33 beaches. It’s not as well-known as other Caribbean islands, which makes it the perfect choice for couples who want a private escape.
There’s plenty to do on a Caribbean honeymoon in Anguilla, including reggae bars where you can watch the world go by over a cold beer, lobster and BBQ chicken restaurants and funky art galleries.
Other celebs who picked Aguilla for their honeymoon: Courteney Cox and David Arquette
Amal Alamuddin and George Clooney
It’s not confirmed but widely believed that after their Venice wedding, this Hollywood power couple headed to the dreamy Seychelles for their honeymoon.
They were rumoured to be kicking back on the secluded North Island, which is totally private and makes sense for one of the world’s most high profile couples, who presumably wanted to escape the limelight to celebrate each other’s company in complete seclusion.
Celebrities who also chose to honeymoon in the Seychelles: Kate Middleton and Prince William, Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade.
Adam Brody and Leighton Meester
The former Gossip Girl start Leighton Meester and her OC-alumni husband headed to the celebrity hotspot of Mexico for their honeymoon. Mexico is a popular choice of destination with lots of famous couples – it boasts white sand beaches, crystal clear seas, tacos and tequila – a winning combination. It’s also relatively close to the US, making it a prime choice for a luxurious getaway for stateside celebs, and an ideal pitstop for beach-loving couples who are looking for a twin-centre honeymoon that includes America.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
We were waiting with baited breath to find out where Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would choose to honeymoon. Would the reality TV star and her rapper husband head to their own private island? Not necessary – they chose to visit Ireland. Yes, they chose to honeymoon in Ireland. Famed for rain, Guinness and the locals’ strong capacity for drink, it seemed like an unusual choice.
The couple hired a castle to stay in, which makes it suitably fancy. However, Kanye reportedly spent three days of their honeymoon editing a single photo of the couple kissing from their wedding to bring it up to his Instagram standards – which didn’t leave much time for visiting the Guinness Factory or the Leprechaun Museum.
Anne Hathaway and Adam Schulman
We can be a bit guilty of taking France for granted in the UK as it’s so nearby, but to some rich and famous couples it’s the place they chose to begin married life together. Anne Hathaway and her husband Adam Schulman visited Paris, the city of love, on their honeymoon – a dreamy destination, especially if you also take in the French Riviera too.
