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.
Brigitte Bardot and Jacques Charrier
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.
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.
Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd
The iconic Elizabeth Taylor was known for her looks, her talent, and her long list of husbands. Her third beau was theater producer Mike Todd, whom she married in 1957. Below we see the gorgeous actress in a classic black bathing suit while on her honeymoon with Todd in Acapulco, Mexico.
Despite the beautiful wedding and romantic honeymoon to exciting Mexico, the couple only lasted a year, when Todd sadly passed away in a plane crash in 1958. Taylor didn’t spend too much time as a bachelorette, marrying Eddie Fisher in 1959. In fact, she was married a whopping eight times.
Arlene Dahl and Fernando Lamas
They say that good things come to those who wait, and that was most certainly the case as far as famous classic Hollywood actors Arlene Dahl and Fernando Lamas were concerned. This newlywed couple had to wait two years after their wedding to finally enjoy their honeymoon. They flew off to Rome to celebrate their union in 1956.
Above, we see the smiling couple enjoying the Roman sun by a beautiful Church. Since they had to wait two long years to go on their honeymoon due to work contracts holding them back, they took an especially long holiday through Italy. Good for them!
