In the age of social media, it can seem that every celebrity is happy to live their life through Instagram and other platforms; sharing everything from the most mundane moments of their lives to the most intimate and special. However, not all Hollywood celebrities choose to document their lives for the world to see. In fact, some celebrities go to great lengths to stay out of the public eye.
In every celebrity’s life, there are certain events which draw more attention than others. Two of the most significant events are engagement announcements and weddings. For any celebrity selling their story, it can mean big dollars. But for some of the more private celebrities, who prefer to shun the attention, no figure is enough to sell their most intimate moments. Sometimes it can be hard to believe that this is true with the likes of the Kardashians and other stars, but it is comforting to know that there are still celebrities who value their privacy.
Let’s take a look at 8 celebrities who have gone to great lengths to keep their engagement or weddings under wraps:
Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley
This Australian celebrity wanted her wedding so private and intimate that even their modest guest list of 50 did not even know the location. Mobile phones and cameras were also banned from the event.
Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher
The couple from That 70’s Show must have gone to great efforts to ensure their wedding was kept a secret. To this day, no photos have emerged and it wasn’t until a few months later that their marriage was confirmed by Kunis.
Beyonce and Jay-Z
Although perhaps the most famous couple in the world, Beyonce and Jay-Z are notoriously private. In 2008 they secretly got married in Jay-Z’s apartment.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Lively’s engagement ring might be one of the most famous in recent years but little is known about their engagement or wedding in 2012.
Leighton Meister and Adam Brody
Fans of The OC and Gossip Girl got a huge surprise when Meister and Brody got married in 2012.
Mary Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy
Fashion icon Olsen married long term partner Sarkozy in the private Thanksgiving ceremony in 2016. Still, no images have emerged of what the stylish young bride wore.
Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish
In 2012, Kate Bosworth accidentally let it slip that she was engaged to Polish; unsurprisingly they later got married in secret.
Amy Winehouse and Reg Traviss
It was only following the tragic death of Winehouse that it was revealed that she and Traviss had only got engaged a few weeks prior to her death.
