Wedding bells and confetti brought happiness and joy throughout 2023 as HELLO! proudly shared with you the biggest exclusives from the best day of our favourite celebrities’ lives.

Our coverage of royal weddings is second to none and in June we took you behind the scenes of the regal nuptials of Crown Prince Al Hussein of Jordan and his bride Princess Rajwa, with a beautiful photo album of the royal couple’s special day at the magnificent Zahran Palace in Amman.

The Prince and Princess of Wales were among the many royals from around the world welcomed by the groom’s proud parents, King Abdullah II and Queen Rania, to witness the historic celebration.
