7 Beautiful and Unique Celebrity Engagement Rings

Celebrity engagement rings aren’t known for being understated. When it comes to wedding jewelry, Hollywood’s biggest stars like to go big!

From Katy Perry’s flower-shaped ring, to Lea Michele’s 4-carat showstopper, we’ve selected a few of our favourites and delved into the finer details.

So, take a browse of some of the most glamorous, bedazzling and unique celebrity engagement rings of recent years…

Katy Perry’s engagement ring

Katy Perry’s engagement to Orlando Bloom is one of the most recent celebrity engagements to make headlines. Bloom proposed on Valentine’s Day, and the award-winning singer took to her Instagram page to share the news.

Opting for a unique flower-shaped engagement ring, Perry captioned the photo with the words ‘full bloom’, a fitting reference to her husband’s last name.

Experts have estimated a range of possible values for the ring, dependent on its beautiful pink centre stone. So far, estimates have ranged from $25,000 to $5 million!

Emily Ratajowski’s engagement ring

Without a doubt one of the most impressive celebrity engagement rings, Sebastian Bear McClard proposed to model and actress Emily Rataowski with a sparkling two-stone ring.

Emily’s ring is a bespoke Alison Lon design, uniquely pairing a princess and pear-cut diamond side by side. Speaking exclusively to Vogue, Emily shared:

‘We liked the idea of two stones instead of one and spent a long time looking at rings with multiple stones for inspiration. At one point it included a ruby as the second stone, but ultimately we loved the idea of the femininity of the pear contrasted with the architecture of the princess.’

Hailey Bieber’s engagement ring

Justin Bieber is of course, one of the richest stars in the world. So, it’s no surprise that when it came to choosing an engagement ring, Bieber went above and beyond. Following a whirlwind romance, the pop star proposed to model and long-term friend, Hailey Bieber with an impressive engagement ring, said to be between 6 and 10 carets.

Hailey’s breathtaking ring was picked out from Solow  & Co and is estimated to be have been purchased for upwards of $500,000. A renowned private jeweler, Solow spoke to People magazine about the thoughtfully chosen ring:

‘Justin wanted something that would gracefully accentuate Hailey’s beautifully shaped hands. We settled on an oval stone that was just exceptional in its length and grace.’

Miranda Kerr’s engagement ring

Following the news of Katy Perry’s engagement, fans were quick to compare Perry’s ring to the ring Miranda Kerr received from ex-husband Orlando Bloom. And though there may be a resemblance, it’s safe to say that the Australian model has officially moved on from the The Lord of the Rings actor.

A post shared by Miranda (@mirandakerr) on

Kerr confirmed the news of her engagement to CEO of Snapchat Evan Spiegel in 2016, posting a stunning black and white photograph of her diamond ring. One of the most traditional celebrity engagement rings, Kerr’s ring features a round-cut solitaire and classic tapered baguettes. Of course, Miranda gave the photograph a personalised touch by adding a custom Snapchat cartoon to mark the occasion!

Lea Michele’s engagement ring

Lea Michele is another star to send Instagram into overdrive with news of her engagement. Zandy Reich proposed to Michele in 2018, and it’s safe to say fans were dazzled by her 4-carat diamond.

A post shared by Lea Michele (@leamichele) on

Jeweler Greg Kwiat spoke to The Knot to offer his expertise:

‘Michele’s stone weighs in at four carats, and is classified as a rectangular radiant cut. The piece itself includes a diamond halo and is set on a single, pave diamond band. A ring [of this caliber] would likely have a value in the range of $100,000 to $150,000. While it has its roots in antique and vintage jewelry designs, it continues to have a timeless allure.’

Margot Robbie’s engagement ring

Oscar-nominated actress Margot Robbie marked her engagement by sharing a fun photograph with fans. And though the first image released to the public was a little blurry, experts have since had a chance to weigh in on the finer details of the stunning ring.

One of our favourite celebrity engagement rings, Margot’s ring is an elegant solitaire pear cut, complemented by a yellow gold pavé band. The shimmering piece is a unique choice, making it a fantastic option for those in search of something a little different. The total cost of the ring has been debated by experts, but is likely to fall between $11,900 and $18,500.

Lauren Conrad’s engagement ring

After turbulent years of dating on The Hills, the original queen of reality TV found happiness with law student and musician William Tell, following a blind date arranged by friends. To the delight of fans, Tell proposed in 2013 and Conrad shared her timeless, elegant ring on social media.

Best surprise ever.

A post shared by Lauren Conrad (@laurenconrad) on


One of the most classic celebrity engagement rings that we’ve seen, Conrad’s 2-carat diamond is a round cut design by Sydney Evan. Experts have suggested the ring is worth as much as $40,000. But since her engagement, the TV star turned designer released her own line of affordable engagement rings at Kohl’s.

15 Wedding Readings to Make Guests Laugh & Cry

Wedding readings are a wonderful way to celebrate with friends and family. Whether you opt for a romantic extract from classic literature, one of the best wedding readings from films, or draw inspiration from a witty poem, we’ve found something special for everyone.

You may want to choose a wedding reading that complements the theme of your wedding or your venue. So, take a read of our selection of the best wedding readings and start planning for a day that guests will remember…

Les Misérables

written by Victor Hugo 

“The future belongs to hearts even more than it does to minds. Love, that is the only thing that can occupy and fill eternity. In the infinite, the inexhaustible is requisite.

Love participates of the soul itself. It is of the same nature. Like it, it is the divine spark; like it, it is incorruptible, indivisible, imperishable. It is a point of fire that exists within us, which is immortal and infinite, which nothing can confine, and which nothing can extinguish. We feel it burning even to the very marrow of our bones, and we see it beaming in the very depths of heaven.”

The Notebook

written by Nicholas Sparks

A famous tearjerker, The Notebook was originally a Nicholas Sparks novel. And it’s safe to say his beautiful words are still a strong choice for wedding readings.

“I am nothing special, of this I am sure. I am a common man with common thoughts and I’ve led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten, but I’ve loved another with all my heart and soul, and to me, this has always been enough.”

Everything I Know About Love

written by Dolly Alderton

“I know that love can be loud and jubilant…I also know that love is a pretty quiet thing. It’s lying on the sofa together drinking coffee, talking about where you’re going to go that morning to drink more coffee. It’s folding down pages of books you think they’d find interesting

It’s saying ‘You’re safer here than in a car’ as they hyperventilate on an EasyJet flight to Dublin. It’s the texts: ‘Hope your day goes well’, ‘How did today go?’, ‘Thinking of you today’ and ‘Picked up loo roll’.

Love is a quiet, reassuring, relaxing, pottering, pedantic, harmonious hum of a thing; something you can easily reach forget is there, even though its palms are outstretched beneath you in case you fall.”

*edited extract

Up (2009)

“You and me… we’re in a club now. And you will always be my greatest adventure.”

best wedding readings

Jane Eyre

written by Charlotte Bronte

“I have for the first time found what I can truly love — I have found you. You are my sympathy — my better self — my good angel — I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my center and spring of life, wraps my existence about you — and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one. It was because I felt and knew this, that I resolved to marry you.”

When Harry Met Sally (1989)

screenplay by Nora Ephron

This classic rom-com is known for some fantastically witty and romantic words, perfect for crafting wedding readings that you’ll never forget.

best wedding readings

The Lord of the Rings

written by J.R.R. Tolkien

“When Winter comes, and singing ends, when darkness falls at last; When broken is the barren bough, and light and labour past; I’ll look for thee, and wait for thee, until we meet again; Together we will take the road beneath the bitter rain. Together we will take the road that leads into the West; And far away will find a land where both our hearts may rest.”

Letters

written by Lemony Snicket

‘I will love you as a drawer loves a secret compartment, and as a secret compartment loves a secret, and as a secret loves to make a person gasp, and as a gasping person loves a glass of brandy to calm their nerves, and as a glass of brandy loves to shatter on the floor, and as the noise of glass shattering loves to make someone else gasp, and as someone else gasping loves a nearby desk to lean against, even if leaning against it presses a lever that loves to open a drawer and reveal a secret compartment. I will love you until all such compartments are discovered and opened, and until all the secrets have gone gasping into the world.’

Sleepless in Seattle (1993)

screenplay by Nora Ephron

“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home … only to no home I’d ever known … I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.”

Be My Wife

by David Bowie

“Sometimes you get so lonely, Sometimes you get nowhere
I’ve lived all over the world, I’ve left every place

Please be mine, Share my life
Stay with me, Be my wife”

Winnie the Pooh

written by A.A Milne

One of the most beautiful wedding readings is taken from none other than Winnie the Pooh! This sentimental extract is sure to pull at some heartstrings.

The Wedding Singer (1998)

screenplay by Tim Herlihy

“I want to make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All I want to do is grow old with you
I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you
I’ll miss you, Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you, Feed you
Even let you hold the remote control
So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed if you’ve had too much to drink
I could be the man who grows old with you
I want to grow old with you.”

Juno (2007)

screenplay by Diablo Cody

The One

poem by Rupi Kaur

“They should feel like home

a place that grounds your life

where you go to take the day off”

Yes I’ll Marry You

poem by Pam Ayres

“Yes, I’ll marry you, my dear, And here’s the reason why;

So I can push you out of bed, When the baby starts to cry,

And if we hear a knocking, And it’s creepy and it’s late,

I hand you the torch, you see, And you investigate.

Yes I’ll marry you, my dear, You may not apprehend it,

But when the tumble-drier goes, It’s you that has to mend it,

You have to face the neighbour, Should our labrador attack him,

And if a drunkard fondles me It’s you that has to whack him.

Yes, I’ll marry you, You’re virile and you’re lean,

My house is like a pigsty You can help to keep it clean.

That sexy little dinner, Which you served by candlelight,

As I do chipolatas, You can cook it every night!

It’s you who has to work the drill and put up curtain track,

And when I’ve got PMT it’s you who gets the flak,

I do see great advantages, But none of them for you,

And so before you see the light,

I do, I do, I do!.”

As your dream day gets closer and closer, the finer details of your wedding are sharply coming into focus. It’s time to start choosing favours or picking one of the millions of wedding table centrepiece ideas you’ve saved to your wedding Pinterest boards.wedding table centrepiece ideas

But how do you narrow your choices down?

Will your budget stretch to having life-size swan ice sculptures on every table, or would you prefer to whip out the crafting kit and start recycling used mason jars and empty wine bottles?

We’ve got a long list of wedding table centrepiece ideas for every bride’s budget, ready for those who want to save and others who have cash to burn.

The Rustic Look

Perfect for those who love the outdoors, the rustic wedding theme is a popular one, allowing the beauty of nature to set the tone of your wedding day.

Here are some ways you can transform even the simplest, everyday items into stunning and creative wedding table centrepieces.

Log Slices

Take a slice of a fallen log and give it a makeover by piling it high with tea lights, pine leaves or small glass jars filled with the sweetest smelling meadow fauna.

Log Wedding table centrepiece ideas

Log slices can be stacked on top of each other at juxtaposing angles, with trinkets balanced on each tier.

An intricate golden photo frame next to a fallen pine cone or a naked pillar candle with a twine collar are just a few of the wedding table centrepiece ideas you can create from a slice of a fallen tree log.

Terracotta Potted Plants

In keeping with the rustic and humble theme, the terracotta plant pot is something we see every day, in gardens and homes all over the world.

Use their simplicity as inspiration for some of the most beautifully rustic wedding table centrepiece ideas perfect for your most special day.

Teracotta Pot Wedding table Centrepeices

Fill one large pot up with a variety of bright flowering plants or choose a different type of flower per table.

You could even gather a selection of different sized pots together and arrange them in irregular groups, filling them with succulents, sweet smelling herbs or the blossom of the season.

Bring a touch of English garden style to your wedding day celebrations, using the humble terracotta potted plant.

Foraged

Some of the most stunning things in life can be found in nature, so why not use them to make imaginative wedding table centrepieces and let your special day stand apart from the rest.

Go on the hunt in the woods nearest your home and pick up bits of fallen evergreen, pine cones, weathered branches and moss to form the most impressive wedding table centrepieces.

Or perhaps forage on a nearby beach collecting driftwood, shells, sea glass and wave-worn pebbles to create a stunning seaside centrepiece.

Stand out among the crowds and give your special day that rustic touch, showing off your creativity and love for the natural world.

Teapots and China

Thanks to oodles of charity shops and ways to buy online second hand there are some fantastic examples of China-esque tea sets available to buy for buttons.

Tea set wedding table centrepiece ideas

For an elegant wedding table centrepiece, why not get your hands on a few sets, one for each table, and fill them up with your choice of flowering foliage.

British flowers look the best with sprigs of lavender, roses in full bloom, daisies, forget-me-nots, baby’s breath and fern leaves all reaching out from delicate cups and pots.

Fabulous Florals

It may seem fairly obvious but, thanks to the pioneering work of botanical artists, florals can be so much more than bouquets these days.

We’ve rounded up a selection of the best ways to put your favourite florals together to form some of the most fabulous wedding table centrepiece ideas.

All of which would look simply stunning in our Garden of Eden Rooftop Wedding venue.

Bouquets

Okay, so we said there was more to florals than bouquets, but you can still utilise the idea of a bouquet and really make it your own.

Flower bouquet wedding table centrepiece ideas

Choose between spherical arrangements that sit prettily perched upon thinly stemmed vases and larger bouquets that spill out over the tops of elegant crystal chalices.

Or give your bouquet a modern twist by adding in non-flowering elements such as baubles, jewels, brooches and buttons lending tidbits of your personality to your choice of floral décor.

Garlands

For long seating arrangements, make it seem as though your flowers are growing from the table itself by creating a meandering chain of blooms and greenery that snakes along the entire length of the table.

Alternatively, for round place settings, gather a mass of your favourite blooms and arrange them in a mound to form the central focus of each guests table.

Both these wedding table centrepiece ideas give you the freedom to place your arrangements in a more natural manner, doing away with the difficult choice of what to use as a flower holder.

Birdcages

Pick up some decorative birdcages, get rid of the birds, and fill them with all sorts of flowering arrangements, decorated with strings of pearls, ribbons or fairy lights.

Wedding table centrepiece idedas cages

Whether you wind your flowers, vine-like around the intricate bars or stuff them in until they push through the gaps, the delicate birdcage is an interesting way to display your choice of floral centrepiece and are so easy to embellish.

Afternoon Tea Tiers

A charming wedding table centrepiece idea, and one that is so simple to achieve, the afternoon tea tier filled with flowers and trinkets.

Simply place piles of pretty flowers on each tier balanced next to delicately painted china cups, pastel coloured macarons and specially decorated cupcakes.

This will serve as an attractive wedding table centrepiece and something for your guests to nibble at after dinner.

DIY & Handmade

Sometimes, when you want something doing right you have to do it yourself, and no matter how many times you’ve scoured the internet for the perfect centrepiece, you know it’d just be better if you made it yourself.

Use all the wonderful wedding centrepiece ideas you’ve gathered since the day you got engaged and get to work creating your own self-made centrepiece.

Succulents

Easy, pretty and so good for the budget, the succulent is the perfect wedding table centrepiece to add an evergreen chic to any reception.

Succulents wedding table centrepieces

Simply select a few succulents and arrange them in an elegant fashion then top with a gleaming glass cloche. Or set your succulents off with a collection of smooth grey pebbles and gleaming white candles.

The rich green of succulent plants provides an endless list of exciting wedding table centrepiece ideas, easily adapted to any and every wedding day theme.

Old Books

Turn those old, long forgotten hardback novels into the perfect wedding table centrepiece by piling them high and topping with flowers, lanterns and candles or wrapping them in vintage laces and elaborate ribbons.

Better still try your hand at book sculpting, transforming the pages of an old book into a literary masterpiece by folding down pages to create dates, words and images.

Recycled Bottles, Jars and Tins

Giving the Eco-friendly bride a chance to save the planet, and decorate her wedding table at the same time, these wedding table centrepiece ideas are budget-friendly and beautiful to look at.

Save any old jar from the recycling bin and give it a new lease of life as a wedding table centrepiece by filling it with flowers, fairy lights, coloured glass beads or decorative branches.

Jar tin and bottle wedding table centrepiece ideas

Or take an empty wine or liquor bottle, clean off the labels and use for tapered candle holders or fill with long stem flowers and such as lilies and roses.

The humble tin can, can and will still serve a purpose once the baked beans are cooked and eaten, as they make the most charming flower holders. Simply scrape off the labels and add a lace or ribbon embellishment then stuff with flowers to make a pretty and inexpensive wedding table centrepiece.

Lanterns

From intricate and vintage to up-cycled or wooden, lanterns prove to be a popular choice for wedding table centrepieces.

Fill them with flowers that delicately spill out onto the table or flickering candles, alone or in groups.

You can choose to make your lantern the star of the show or pay more attention to what’s inside. Either way, your rustic wedding theme will be perfectly complemented by a well-placed lantern centrepiece.

Umbrellas and Parasols

Got an old brolly lying around? Fab!

Simply remove the fabrics and paint the frame in your theme colours then go to town, decorating it with dangling ornaments of every variety. Paper birds and butterflies, twinkling fairy lights, beads or jewels, all will look fabulous for your big day.

Umbrella themed wedding table centrepiece ideas

You could even get yourself a few ornate parasols with intricate lace frills or embellished paper ones with stylish artwork painted on.

There’s so much you can do with an old brolly, but this wedding table centrepiece idea is strictly not for the superstitious bride.

Extra & Extravagant

It’s your special day, the most important of your life so far, so it’s your chance to be as extra and extrovert as you care to be.

Here are a few wedding table centrepiece ideas that really do push the boat out and will certainly impress all your wedding guests on your big day.

Ice Sculptures

The glistening quality of ice lends itself well as a decorative material. Tricky to work with but, in the right environment, there are plenty of wedding table centrepiece ideas involving ice.

Ice wedding table centrepieces

From huge blocks containing one frozen flower to carved champagne buckets and frosted artwork fantasies. Real ice is an impressive and elegant addition to any wedding table.

Tip: If your guests wouldn’t enjoy sitting in a freezer for your reception, consider using ice-like crystals to give the same frosty effects.

Opulent Candelabras

A more traditional choice for wedding table centrepieces, the candelabra is easily adapted to any theme of any wedding.

The stems can be as simple or opulent as you like and the material can be glistening gold, sleek in silver or beautifully black.

Add candles to the tops and leave the base bare or choose to embellish your candelabras with crystals, pearls, ivy vines or beautiful bouquets of flowers.

Hanging Ornaments

One way to make an impression upon your guests is to arrange hanging centrepieces above their tables. If you have the option, clear up some space and fix a flowered hoop to swing above your guests.

Hanging wedding table centrepieces

Other options include rope swing seats, strewn with candles, larger than life glass bubbles with industrial style lamps and strings of crystals or mini chandeliers.

Give your guests more table space and your wedding the wow factor by using these unique wedding table centrepiece ideas.

Decorative Trees

The delicacy of a blossom tree adds a gentle beauty to any wedding reception.

Imagine them sprouting up from the centre of your wedding reception table, dotted with cherry blossoms, dripping with crystals or draped in baubles and hanging candles.

Better still, this is one of our wedding table centrepiece ideas that can be as big as you’d like as guests will be able to chat around the trunk and beneath the decorative branches.

Personal Touches

When brides and grooms add their own personal style and flair to their wedding day, you instantly know they’re going to cherish the day’s memories for a lifetime.

These are some unique and unforgettable wedding table centrepiece ideas that really say something about the happy couple.

Vinyl LP’s

“If Music be the food of love, play on”

Shakespeare

Couples who adore music will certainly share a favourite track or two, a special song that reminds them of a moment in their relationship.

Vinyl wedding table centrepieces

What better way to share their love of music, and each other, with their wedding guests than by using LP’s of their favourite tracks to make the most memorable wedding centrepieces?

Each record or its sleeve would sit proudly among smaller flower arrangements, or cluster of candles, the record itself having a special memory or meaning associated with it, privy to the bride and groom alone.

Photos of the Bride/Groom

Some guests may have known the bride and groom for years, since birth in some cases, but others might only know them as a couple.

Placing pictures of their younger selves on guest tables allows everyone in attendance to see the journey the couple have been on, before making it to this, the most special day of their lives.

A great way to add something unique to any wedding day and a real conversation starter among guests.

Movie Memorabilia

For some, it’s music for others its movies, and at any film fanatics wedding expect to see table centrepieces based on some of their all-time favourite movie moments.

Movie themed wedding table centrepiece ideas

Whether it’s Disney quotes or Spielberg’s biggest blockbusters, every movie can be an inspiration for some of the most brilliant wedding table centrepiece ideas.

Quirky

There’s something bold about doing things differently, standing out from the crowd and making a statement about who you are as people, and as a couple.

These are the sort of weddings where you wonder how the couple came up with such remarkable wedding table centrepiece ideas.

Hats

Not just for the head, in this case, the most decorative hat can also double up as a whimsical wedding table centrepiece, if you really put your mind to it.

Use elaborate top hats with flowers and feathers stuck in the brim or straw hats decorated like bonnets filled with meadow fauna.

Hat themed wedding table centrepiece ideas

Cowboy hats are great for western themed weddings and eccentric feather headdresses can adorn a Gatsby themed wedding reception.

The possibilities are endless when using hats to inspire your wedding table centrepiece ideas, hats off to those bold enough to use them.

Skulls

A tad macabre for some perhaps, but for others, the skull can represent something extremely beautiful. Take the decorative day of the dead ornaments used in Mexico or the glittering or artist Damien Hirst’s stunning diamond-studded skulls, both frighteningly fabulous and beautiful in their own way.

Alma de Cuba would be the perfect Liverpool wedding venue and setting to host a marvellous mysterious wedding day, the perfect backdrop for quirky skull centrepieces to shine.

Used as candle holders, decorated with diamonds or stuffed with flowers, human or animal skulls are a popular choice for the quirkier wedding table centrepieces.

Balloons

Whimsical and nostalgic, balloons remind us of childish simplicity, giving us a feeling we could be carried away above the clouds on a string.

Add this sense of whimsy and wonder to your wedding day with bunches of brightly coloured balloons, or transparent spheres filled with glitter.

Balloon themed wedding table centrepiece ideas

Chose balloons that spell out words of love to float above your guests’ tables or add baskets of flowers and string nets to create hot air balloons.

The most magical and inventive wedding table centrepiece ideas come from the heart and, after all, who doesn’t love a big bouncing balloon.

No matter what you budget our guide to the best wedding table centrepiece ideas should get those cogs turning and inspire you to bring something truly special to the table on your wedding day.
