Brigitte Bardot and Jacques Charrier were both very famous in their own rights — Bardot was an iconic actress in the 50s, while Charrier was an acclaimed actor, producer, and artist. After getting married on June 18th, 1959, the beautiful blonde and the handsome fella left for a small seaside village in France to spend their honeymoon.
Above, we see the lovebirds looking out from their balcony in the home they stayed for several weeks on their romantic vacation. We feel like maybe, just maybe – the couple had no idea that they were having their photo taken. There’s a good chance that they were simply staring out into the sunset and the cameraman got lucky.
Vic Damone and Pier Angeli
Singer Vic Damone and Italian actress Pier Angeli had an unforgettable honeymoon in Las Vegas after their marriage in 1954, to say the very least. The two actually met through mutual friends, but their relationship really took off after Vic performed “More Than You Know” for Pier at a dinner party.
To celebrate their marriage, the couple jetted off to Las Vegas, where the photo above was taken. Apart from the casinos, the parties, and all the usual attractions, the couple chose Las Vegas because Vic was scheduled to sing at a resort on the same week of the honeymoon.
Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds
Eddie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds were one of Hollywood’s golden couples of the 50s. Eddie was a famous singer who gained international success with hit songs such as "Oh, My Papa," and Debbie was an established Broadway star that later became a beloved American actress. She rose to fame after starring in the 1950’s film “Three Little Words.”
After tying the knot in 1955, Debbie and Eddie flew off to Florida for a romantic honeymoon under the sun. Above, we see the young couple ready for a day of water skiing and beach cocktails. Of course, they would go on to have their fair share of problems later on.
Princess Ira Virginia Furstenberg and Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe-Langenburg
Wealthy Spanish businessman Prince Alfonso Hohenlohe-Langenburg was 31 years old when he married 15-year-old Princess Ira Virginia Furstenberg. Now before we say anything else, let's just stay the absolute obvious here - how can two newlyweds have such ridiculously long names?! Now that we got that out the way - below are the newlyweds honeymooning in Italy by Lake Garda.
The couple got married in Venice and then moved to Mexico to begin their lives as husband and wife. They stayed together for five years and had two children. Known for her astonishing beauty, Princess Ira also made a name for herself as an actress, jewelry designer, and PR manager for some of fashion’s most sought-after brands.
Tony Wright and Janet Munro
Both Tony Wright and Janet Munro were talented British actors. Wright starred in several French films, and Munro starred in the 50s and 60s hit films “Darby O'Gill and the Little People” and “Life for Ruth”. The couple married in 1956 and set off for the romantic city of Paris to start their new lives as husband and wife.
The happy couple spent two weeks enjoying the vibrant city before returning home. Above we see the star-crossed lovers sitting by the Seine River. It's amazing to think how many couples have had such memorable moments on this iconic river since. Sadly, their marriage only lasted three years.
