15 A-List Stars Who Had Secret Weddings
Many of our favorite celebrities choose to share their big day with us, often showing off the glitz and the glam. But some stars prefer to keep their walk down the aisle intimate and out of the limelight. You'll be surprised by some of these A-Listers who said their "I Dos" away from the cameras...
15. Mary-Kate Olsen and Oliver Sarkozy
Mary Kate has had a long career in the public eye. She did make her debut when she was still a toddler! But the star has been known to keep her life private over the years and even decided to bow out of the acting industry. It makes sense that her and long time boyfriend, Oliver, would keep their nuptials intimate.
The happy couple has been together since 2010 and finally took the big step in 2016. Their private Hamptons wedding happened over Thanksgiving weekend. There have been no images or details circulated about the special day but we're sure, twin sister Ashley was in attendance.
14. Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux
A backyard wedding might not sound ideal to you but it was the perfect setting for Jen. As one of the highest-paid actresses, Jennifer Aniston could've had any wedding she wanted but opted for a private affair. She and Justin Theroux said their beautiful wedding vows in 2015.
The couple was joined by a party of 70 family and friends. The star must have a pretty big backyard to host all 70 of them! While very few details surrounding the special moment were shared, it has been rumored that the hit songstress, Sia attended the wedding and sang a song!
13. Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner
Toward the end of 2018, the press got wind of a very special affair that was being planned. The star from Game of Thrones and a beloved Jonas Brother was getting hitched! Joe and Sophie were set to have a lavish French wedding in 2019 but soon changed their big plans.
The celeb couple was wed in Las Vegas in May 2019! Be it because of their busy schedules or for privacy, they said their special words in front of an Elvis Impersonator instead. While the two may still choose to venture to France for some sort of celebration, their wedding was pretty small.
12. Heidi Klum and Tom Kaulitz
While Heidi Klum had a long marriage with the hit musician, Seal, she's since moved on and seems pretty happy these days. The model and TV personality tied the knot with another music man, Tom Kaulitz, in 2019. They only began a relationship in 2018 but immediately hit it off despite the big age gap.
11. Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth
The duo met on the set of The Last Song and then had an on-and-off relationship for a decade. They were married the day before Christmas in 2018! Both stars shared pictures of the intimate event on their Instagram pages. It took place at home with dad Billy Ray Cyrus there too!
The former teen star, Hannah Montana, has been candid about her "modern-day" marriage to fellow celebrity, Liam Hemsworth. Over the years they have carved out their own unique relationship. After they tied the knot she shared this comment:
"My relationship is unique. And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it."
Say It Ain't So: Miley And Liam Are In Splitsville
Sadly the pair split less than a year into their marriage. Many fans were devasted by the news! Their representative shared a short statement that they will be focusing on themselves and their careers. They also added that they will remain friendly and co-pet parents. They said:
"[we will stay] dedicated parents to all of the animals [we] share.”
10. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt
