Celebrities Who’ve Officiated Weddings
When Kelly Clarkson announced she and her fiance were eloping, that left the role of their planned officiant, Blake Shelton, up in the air. The country star would’ve become the latest celeb to perform a wedding, but here are more (ordained through various means) who’ve done it already.
The ‘Survivor’ host has been officiating weddings since the 1990s, but the 2010 nuptials he performed for ‘The Office’ star Jenna Fischer (a longtime pal) are probably the most famous.
Mother Monster became ordained in 2011 so she could oversee her yoga instructor’s same-sex wedding in New York.
In 2011, Conan officiated a same-sex wedding between costume designer Scott Cronick and his partner David Gorshein at NYC’s Beacon Theatre.
It’s only fitting that the actress oversaw the November 2012 union between her publicist Holly Shakoor and her ‘Gangster Squad’ director Ruben Fleischer — after all, she introduced them.
Some celebrities have performed gay marriages, but Garber — a gay actor — was the officiant and only guest at his ‘Alias’ co-star Jennifer Garner’s tropical wedding to Ben Affleck in 2005. (Garber is also godfather to the couple’s daughter Violet.)
McKellan’s presided over weddings before, but the one he did in September for pal Patrick Stewart was particularly special — not only to him, but to the rest of us as well.
