In 1950, Hollywood stars Clark Gable and Sylvia Ashley took a magical honeymoon to Hawaii. For Clark Gable, it was his fifth wedding, but the first time he married an actress. Sylvia was a talented actress who had worked opposite stars such as Cary Grant and Errol Flynn during her career.
Above we see the relaxed couple looking as tropical as can be while enjoying a beautiful beach in Hawaii. What better way to spend a honeymoon than on white sandy beaches with perfect weather year-round? Despite the incredible setting, Gable and Ashley would only last three years before eventually going their separate ways.
Diana Barrymore and Robert Wilcox
In 1950, actors Diana Barrymore and Robert Wilcox married at a church in New York City just one month before their honeymoon in Florida. The two stayed at the lavish Sherry-Frontenac Hotel in sunny Miami Beach for their honeymoon.
Barrymore was an actress and prominent society figure, having starred on Broadway in the early 1940s. Wilcox was an actor and producer who had appeared on screen since the early 1930s. They even starred in a play while on their honeymoon! But what we need to point out from this photo is just how genuinely happy these two looked during their romantic getaway.
Elvis and Priscilla Presley
It should come as no surprise that Elvis Presley knew how to handle his relationships in the most romantic way imaginable. When King of Rock 'n' Roll and Priscilla Beaulieu tied the knot in 1967, they jet-setted off to Palm Springs for their honeymoon. The singer of songs like "Hound Dog" and "Suspicious Minds," along with his beautiful bride, had an unforgettable time.
They stayed at the iconic House of Tomorrow, a futuristic house and architectural marvel. Above, we see Elvis and Priscilla about to board a private jet, loaned by Frank Sinatra, towards their unforgettable honeymoon in California. They got married at the Aladdin Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Elizabeth Taylor and Conrad Nicholson "Nicky" Hilton Jr.
Below we see a young and beautiful Elizabeth Taylor celebrating her honeymoon with hotel heir Nicky Hilton on board the luxurious SS Queen Mary. They tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in 1950 and went on to have one of the most extravagant honeymoons of all time, taking a cruise around Europe.
The Academy Award-winning actress had risen to fame with popular films like “National Velvet,” “Father of the Bride,” and “A Place in the Sun.” Conrad Nicholson Hilton Jr. was a wealthy hotelier who had inherited his fortune from his father's business empire. And the Hilton name still lives strong until this very day.
Roger Moore and Luisa Mattioli
Roger Moore and Luisa Mattioli were very famous actors of the 1960s, making them the ultimate celebrity couple after tying the knot in 1969. The English actor and his gorgeous Italian wife celebrated their honeymoon around France during the summer of 1969.
They were both established actors, with Roger having played the leading role in the “James Bond” movies, and Mattioli starring in films like "No Man's Land" and "The Lovely Lola." She must've felt like a real Bond girl during that honeymoon. Together, the glamorous couple toured France in style, as can be seen above, showing them enjoying a day in the sun at the beach in Cannes.
