We took a look back at our favourite Australian celebrity wedding photos. Because, why not?

There's something dreamy about celebrity weddings. 

The exorbitant shows of money, sponsorship deals and social circles stuffed to the brim with the rich and famous.

They're a guilty pleasure of ours that we just can't draw our eyes away from and, in our very humble opinion, 2021 just hasn't had enough of them.

Side note: Check out these celebrity's first wedding dance songs. Post continues below.

Zoe Foster Blake and Hamish Blake

Founder of Go-To, Zoe Foster Blake, and Australian radio host and comedian, Hamish Blake, got married back in 2012, and they remain one of our dream couples.

The pair now share two kids together, 7-year-old Sonny, and 3-year-old Rudy.

Back in 2012, Zoe wrote about the day on her blog, Zo They Say:

"‘I married the love of my life, several lives perhaps, in a very small ceremony that was genuinely the best, most fun, perfect day of both our lives. 

"People always say that about their own wedding day, and I generally assume them to be employing hyperbole in exact proportion to the amount of cash, energy and effort they spent on their day, but now, now I get it. 

"It is a very, very special day indeed."
