Celebrity Nuptials Kept Under Wraps

This article originally appeared on Hollywood Life and is syndicated by Cheapism.

With so much of celebrities’ lives out there for public consumption, there are some elements they would rather keep private. While a number of stars love to share every aspect of their day, or even milestone moments, with their fans, there are certain celebrations that they keep close to their hearts. As such, a number of stars have had private wedding ceremonies over the years. 

Some stars eventually share the news that they got married by chatting about it in an interview, or even making a fun social media post. But others prefer to keep things quiet. We’ve rounded up a number of celebrities, their partners, and even celebrity couples, who chose to keep their 'I Do's totally under wraps. From Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson and so many more, take a look at the gallery to see more stars who had private wedding ceremonies.


Anna Faris & Michael Barrett

After Michael Barrett was spotted wearing a wedding band on his finger to a dinner in July 2021, Anna Faris shared the news: She and her fiancé quietly tied the knot when no one was looking. “Yes, we eloped. I’m sorry, honey. I just blurted that out, but it just feels [like] I can’t say fiancé anymore,” she said on an episode of her podcast. “Thank you, it was awesome. It feels great.”
