Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s surprise wedding on Aug. 5 isn’t the first time a celebrity couple has escaped the curious eyes of the public on their special day. Some of Hollywood’s hottest couples have said ‘I do’ in secret, only to reveal their wedded bliss at a later date.
Unlike the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who exchanged vows in front of a global audience of more than 1 billion, lovebirds like Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively and Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher managed to keep their weddings under the radar.
A-list actress Scarlett Johansson managed to keep her 2014 marriage to Romain Dauriac a secret for more than two months as did new mom Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin opted to go all out with their festivities, holding a very public three-day affair in September 2014. Their Italian nuptials were much different from that of George’s From Tusk Till Dawn co-star Salma Hayek, who married French businessman Francois-Henri Pinault in civil ceremony on Valentine’s Day in 2009.
Here, Hello! rounds up 23 celebrity couples that tied the knot in secret.
