After tying the knot in the beautiful church of Santa Francesca Romana in Rome, Hollywood actors Linda Christian and Tyrone Power celebrated their honeymoon in Cervinia. In case you didn’t know – this is the northwestern part of Italy and is a very popular winter location for tourists. Below we see the glamorous couple posing in front of a majestic snowcapped mountain.
The handsome actor and his gorgeous Mexican movie-star bride had met whilst filming the Technicolor epic “Captain from Castile” in 1947 and fell for each other almost instantly. They stayed together up until 1956 and had two children.
Lana Turner and Henry J. "Bob" Topping
In 1948, Lana Turner and Henry J. “Bob” Topping tied the knot — and what better way to kick off their blissful union than with a dream honeymoon? The newlyweds flew off on an exotic trip around the world, with stops in London, Madrid, Rome, and Paris. Below we can see the gleaming couple arriving in London.
Turner was already a bonafide Hollywood star before her marriage to Topping, having appeared in films such as “Ziegfeld Girl” and “The Postman Always Rings Twice.” Meanwhile, Topping had made his fortune as president of the American League's New York Yankees from 1945 until 1947.
Rocio Durcal and Antonio "Junior" Morales Barretto
Rocio Durcal and Antonio "Junior" Morales Barretto had the trip of a lifetime when they decided to honeymoon in Paris in 1970. Rocio was only 21 but already a well-known singer in both Latin America and Spain. Antonio, her husband, was known as a songwriter, producer, and guitarist who wrote some of Rocio's most beloved songs.
Together they were two of the most successful musical couples of their era, so why not celebrate with a fairytale wedding in Paris? Above, we see the young lovebirds taking in the sights with a beautiful backdrop of the Arc du Triomphe. If that doesn't set the tone for your marriage, we don't know what will.
John Lennon and Yoko Ono
Leave it to rockstar couple John Lennon and Yoko Ono to have a very unconventional honeymoon. After getting married in 1969, the Beatles and the avant-garde artist staged a weeklong 'Bed-In for Peace' — a publicity stunt intended to promote worldwide understanding, love, and peace.
With reporters present and cameras rolling, they turned the event into a media circus that made headlines around the world. We imagine it mustn’t be so hard for a newlywed couple to stay in bed for seven days while in the Presidential Suite of the Hilton Hotel in Amsterdam. This might be the most iconic celebrity honeymoon of all time.
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.
