22 Celebrities Who Pulled Off Secret Weddings

You know how there are just some actresses you wish you could be friends with? There are so many things I love about Kerry Washington, I don’t know where to start. Her classiness, her career choices, her style, and the fact that she manages to have a private life while still sharing a ton of herself with the public. How many celebrities can pull of a super secret wedding to a major NFL star — a guy plenty of her fans didn’t even realize she was serious about or even dating? Actually, quite a few. More than I realized, in fact. So in addition to my girl, Kerry, here’s a slideshow of stars who also managed to keep one of the most meaningful and romantic moments to themselves. No small feat. Hey, Jennifer Aniston and Jessica Simpson… just something to think about.

    When the Scandal star married the San Francisco 49ers' cornerback in June, only immediate family members were present. Kerry's parents were there, and Nnamdi's sister performed the ceremony.

    No one saw this coming. The Green Lantern co-stars pulled off a complete and total paparazzi dodge when they married on September 9, 2012 at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.

    The long time couple married in Hawaii on June 24, 2010, with only one guest: Brian's son Kassius. They didn't scrimp on style, though. Both bride and groom wore Armani. Megan's strapless gown had a 16-foot-long train. 

  • Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll 5 of 11

    In December of 2012 a rep confirmed that Kate and Ned — who are now expecting their first child together — married earlier that month in a private ceremony. The coolest part? Leonardo DiCaprio walked her down the aisle

  • Beyonce and Jay-Z 6 of 11

    Six years after they began dating, Bey and Jay-Z got married on April 4th, 2008. But it wasn't until 2011 that we got a glimpse of her wedding gown, made by mom Tina Knowles. A shot of Beyonce trying on the dress was included in a video montage she released while pregnant with Baby Blue.

    In July 2010 the couple announced that they had married in secret. One month later, they made a second announcement that they were expecting. Baby Flynn was born on January 6, 2011.

    Four months after they welcomed son Sebastian, the couple quietly married. Wiz broke the news with a tweet that promised a future party: "Me and Amber got married today. Wedding's this fall. Thought I'd let y'all know." They married again on August 18th in Pittsburgh, PA. 

  • Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem 9 of 11

    They're one of the most glamorous couples on the planet and also one of the most private. The Oscar-winners quietly tied the knot in July 2010 at a friend's place in the Bahamas. When questioned about Javier a few years back, Penelope would not confirm the relationship but offered, "He's a friend and the best actor in the world."

  • Felicity Blunt and Stanley Tucci 10 of 11

    Stanley and Felicity (Yes, that's Emily Blunt's older sis) secretly married in August of 2012. Tucci's first wife passed away from cancer in 2009. The couple were introduced by Emily, who met Tucci when they worked together on The Devil Wears Prada. They had a second star-studded ceremony in London where Steve Buscemi served as best man and Emily was a bridesmaid. 

  • Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan 11 of 11

    A twist on the secret wedding is to invite guests to a "party," then surprise them with the real thing. Mark and Persilla invited friends over presumably to celebrate Priscilla's graduation from medical school. Instead, the couple walked down the aisle in their Palo Alto backyard. Oh, and Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong performed.
