In November 2006, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes tied the knot in a tiny Italian town in front of A-list guests including Will Smith, Victoria Beckham and Brooke Shields.

Their Scientology wedding lasted only 15 minutes and before long the guests were chowing down on a four-course dinner that included sea bass and steak. Dessert was a five-tier white chocolate wedding cake. Somehow we don't reckon Victoria ate much of that.

Both of Britney Spears' two marriages have ended in disaster and her second one to Kevin Federline hardly sounds like a glamorous affair. The ceremony was said to last just five minutes, and it wasn't long before guests were tucking into the classy fare of chicken fingers, barbecue ribs, cheeseburgers, and crab cakes.

All whilst dressed in tracksuits that said "maids" or "pimps" on the back. Britney's wedding was also a BYO affair – bring your own bottle.

Another doomed marriage, Kerry Katona and Mark Croft didn't to anything to alter their King and Queen of chav image at their wedding.

Little is known about the food offered to guests at the marriage of Charles and Camilla, but what is known is that their wedding cake was made by a small family baking firm. During a Royal visit to a food fayre in Scotland, Prince Charles stopped and tried some of the cake that owner of the company, Etta, had baked using her mother's traditional recipe.

Charles was so impressed that he asked his aides to get the recipe. Etta refused to part with the secret. But later, when a request was made by the Queen for the Wedding reception of H.R.H Prince Charles and Camilla Parker-Bowles at Windsor Castle, Etta accepted the offer to make the royal wedding cake.

The cake is now known as 'Etta's Royal Wedding Cake'.

The couple's wedding cake was served with a nude sculpture of the couple on top.

Black Eyed Pea Fergie married Josh Duhamel in January 2009, in Malibu, California. The wedding was rumoured to cost a rumoured $1 million, which is pretty expensive when you consider the guests were asked to catch their own dinner – rainbow trout from a lake on the property.

For those who weren't too experienced with a fishing rod, the rest of the menu included winter-chopped salad, roasted tomato soup, beef tenderloin and sea bass, plus a half-banana, half-chocolate wedding cake designed to look like a castle.
