What is our fascination with celebrity weddings? Is it their money? The glamour? Is it the sneak peek into someone else's high-profile life on what is traditionally an emotional and private day? Or is it that we're interested in anyone's wedding? I think it's that.

Be honest, we love the chance to smirk and silently judge. I can't believe she wore that. Can you? So unflattering, so 90s. They totally stole that vintage plate idea from Pinterest. Get some originality, you bourgeois, meringue-wearing ditz.

However, even though you know for a fact you'd never have done a traditional rose archway for a beach wedding, there is a little part of you that can't help break through the cynicism and just be happy that another couple are starting their lives together.

At least until a women's magazine buys the rights to the divorce story.
