Pulling off a secret wedding might come quite easy for upcoming entertainers but not the A-listers. With paparazzi right behind them, it's a big feat for famous people who try to tie the knot secretly. The press doesn't make it any easier for these celebrity couples either. Once the news of engagement goes out, the Great Wedding Watch starts. Nevertheless, some couples in Hollywood have managed to awe the world with their 'top secret' wedding.
Stars who secretly got married include some of the most famous in film, TV, and music. Are you in doubt? We can give you 30 examples in our sleep. In April 2008, two of the greatest musical minds in Hollywood's history came together in marital bliss when Jay-Z and Beyonce became man and wife, in secret. It was until a couple of months later that the world got its first glance at Queen Bey's astonishing wedding ring. This power couple and many others successfully pulled off a secret wedding.
Some celebs seem thoroughly versed at pulling off top-secret weddings. Believe it; they might be better at arranging such secret nuptials than they are on the silver screen. Well, that was on a lighter note. Example, you say? 'Deadpool' actor Ryan Reynolds secretly married co-actor Scarlett Johansson in 2008 in a Canadian district of fewer than 2000 residents. Approximately four years later, Reynolds did it again; he wedded Blake Lively in a private ceremony in South Carolina.
You might be wondering if all the couples who had secret weddings would stay together living the 'happy ever after.' Does the fact that it was a private wedding make the bliss last longer? Well, not all of them stay together forever. Some former couples have their names on celebrity breakups lists, and some are already showing potentials of being on those lists. That being said, it is feasible that many of the famous couples on our list of those who married in secret would see their union stand the test of time. So, keep reading to see the topnotch secret weddings in Hollywood history.
1. Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin
First on the list is Justin Bieber, not because his wedding is the most discreet of all but because it happened only a few weeks ago. Justin's marriage is excellent news for many but not the ladies who were constantly wishing to have him to themselves. That's not surprising. We all know the story of how pretty ladies scream till they lose their voices when the Canadian singer gets on stage. A particular tween girl fainted during his performance at a concert. Fortunately and unfortunately, the 'Sorry' hitmaker is officially married to 21-year-old model Hailey Baldwin.
Reports have it that the couple tied the knot at a courthouse in New York on September 13. However, Stephen Baldwin's daughter was quick to debunk the news of her being legal to Bieber when the news got out.
Hailey said on a Twitter post, 'I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I'm not married yet!' Sources close to the couple claim that the Hilfiger model 'feels a civil ceremony and their 'real' wedding are two separate things.' The sources added that 'what happened at the courthouse is a courthouse thing - a legal thing. But marriage is two people making a vow before God and the people they love.' Nevertheless, the pair seems so in love that they couldn't even wait for the lawyer to prepare a prenuptial agreement before they became man and wife. A preacher and a friend witnessed the private ceremony.
