Elizabeth Taylor and Eddie Fisher had a whirlwind romance that began in 1958 and ended in a scandalous wedding in 1959. The celebrity couple caused quite a stir, as it ended Debbie Reynolds’ marriage to Eddie. Reynolds also happened to be best friends with Elizabeth Taylor. So there is no denying that there was drama galore in this little corner of Hollywood.
However, that doesn’t seem to have affected the young couple’s joy while walking through the streets of St. Tropez on their honeymoon. They traveled through the Mediterranean on a friend’s yacht for several weeks. Unfortunately, their marriage only lasted five years.
Frances Dee and Joel McCrea
Frances Dee and Joel McCrea, both very successful actors in the 1930s, spent their honeymoon on the gorgeous beaches of Southern California in 1934. Dee was known for her roles in films such as "I Walked With a Zombie" and "Little Women," while McCrea was recognized for his performances in "Sullivan's Travels" and "Foreign Correspondent."
The couple's honeymoon was a romantic getaway to the sun and sands of California and a much-needed break from the hectic pace of Hollywood. The photo above shows the happy and blissful newlyweds in Santa Monica, California, after eloping for their wedding. They even got to play some sports while they were out there.
Sean Connery and Diane Cilento
Regardless of how many actors have played the legendary James Bond over the years, there has been no one like Scottish gentleman Sean Connery. After his first portrayal of Bond in 1962’s “Dr. No,” Connery rose to fame, but before becoming a worldwide celebrity, he starred in “Another Time, Another Place,” where he met actress Diane Cilento.
The couple married in 1962, in a secret wedding in Gibraltar, and then jetted off to beautiful Marbella for their honeymoon. They had a child together, actor Jason Joseph, but sadly, it wasn't a forever match, and the two decided to call it quits in 1973.
Jean-Pierre Aumont and Marisa Pavan
Jean-Pierre Aumont was a famous French actor that made his name after starring in big films like “Les Miserables” and “The Red Balloon.” He met gorgeous Italian actress Marisa Pavan in the early 50s, and as they say, the rest was history. The couple would end up getting married in 1956.
In the photo above, we can see the joyous newlyweds enjoying a private moment together while on their honeymoon in Ischia, Italy. The couple stayed together until 1963, were apart for six years, and then remarried in 1969. And it was a case of second time's a charm because they remained married until Aumont's passing in 2001.

Famous British actress Glynis Johns is captured on camera in a UK airport alongside her new husband David Foster as they return from a romantic honeymoon in 1952. Johns rose to fame for her roles in movies like “Mary Poppins” and “The Court Jester.”
Foster, on his part, was an accomplished American composer and arranger who worked with artists of the topmost caliber like Barbra Streisand and Michael Jackson. Foster was her second husband, and unfortunately, their union only lasted four years. But based on this photo alone, it looks like the newlyweds were pretty excited to get their marriage started.
