Despite their grandiose lifestyle, some celebrities do in fact seek a low-key, drama-free event. Here we list 10 spur-of-the-moment A-list nuptials of all time, that surprised the world.
1. Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll
For her third marriage, Kate, 39, opted for a private ceremony. Although the wedding was kept well under wraps, it wasn't without a star-studded guest list. Her Titanic co-star and close friend Leonardo DiCaprio not only attended, but also walked her down the aisle.
2. Anne Hathaway and Adam Shulman
A Valentino clad Anne, 32, wed her beau Adam in a secret ceremony in Big Sur. It's not surprising that the nuptials were kept hush-hush as she used the same wedding planner as Natalie Portman, who also wed her partner, Benjamin Millepied, in private.
3. Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
Although their marriage was short-lived, the supermodel and her actor boyfriend wed in an intimate ceremony, just one month after they announced their engagement.
4. Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
This sexy Spanish pairing wed in 2010 at a friend's private house in the Caribbean. While it was an intimate affair, it didn't lack in decor set amongst a beautiful beach backdrop.
5. Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
These A-list actors seem to hide their personal lives well away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi. The under-the-radar ceremony took place in South Carolina, and were just as low-key as Ryan's nuptials to ex-wife Scarlett Johansson.
6. Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig
The guest list for the British thespians was limited to just four, including Daniel's daughter and Rachel's son.
7. Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford
While the pair met at the 2002 Golden Globes, Calista, 50 and Harrison, 73, decided to wed in a less public affair. After 8 years of dating, they tied the knot in Santa Fe by then-Governor Bill Richardson.
8. Kerry Washington and Nnamdi Asomugha
The Scandal star and NFL player only invited a select group of friends and family to attend the secret ceremony in Hailey, Idaho.
9. Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock
Kelly, 33 wed her music manager partner Brandon, 38, at Blackberry Farm in Tennessee. The American Idol winner wore a long-sleeved lace gown to the intimate event.
10. Kristen Bell and Dax Sheppard
The couple who share daughter Lincoln, decided to get hitched on the spot when they went to the county clerk's office to collect a marriage licence.
