7. Nicky Hilton and James Rothschild
The glamorous hotel heiress Nicky Hilton married her knight on shining armor in July 2015. But she didn’t trade her trademark family name for just anyone, but for another heir name: James is the grandson of the third baron Rothschild. This was almost a royal wedding, and it definitely was as glamorous as one, as the nuptials took place at the Kensington Palace in London, not far from the church where every royal family takes place. Paris Hilton, the more scandalous sister, was by her sister’s side, and she performed all the duties of a bridesmaid.
As you could probably tell by the wedding photos, and the fact that James is a banker (that’s not to say they are square), the couple is very old-fashioned, and so before getting down on one knee, he traveled to the U.S to ask Nicky’s parents permission to take her hand in marriage. The combined wealth of the couple – the one an heiress of the Hilton Hotels chain, the other an heir to a European dynasty – allowed them to have the wedding of their dreams (not that we’re jealous or anything), and the outcome looks life a fairy tale.
