13 Celebrities Who Decided To Say “I Do” Away From Camera Flashes

Although many paparazzi and some die-hard fans may think differently, celebrities also have a right to privacy. Sometimes they want to keep certain parts of their lives away from public scrutiny and so they celebrate certain events in their lives away from the camera flashes.

In Bright Side, we have listed several celebrities who decided to celebrate their wedding privately and secretly. Some of them were surprised when they made the announcements, and fans applauded others. The truth is that all of them look very happy and in love.

1. Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons

After 6 years of relationship since they met on the set of the series Fargo in 2016, Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons secretly married in 2022 in Jamaica. Although they already had two children, born in 2018 and 2021, they decided to marry later because Kirsten “didn’t want to be pregnant, get married, have a party and not be able to have fun with everyone,” as she told in an interview.

2. Josh Hartnett and Tamsin Egerton

Josh and Tamsin already had a decade together and 3 children. They decided to get married in November 2021, in a ceremony to which only 12 people were invited. In 2021, in an interview, Josh came clean: “What I’m most proud of is that I’m a father of three and I have a good relationship with my partner and a great family life, and I can still do good work and, as I get older, my characters have gotten more interesting.”

3. James McCavoy and Lisa Liberati

McAvoy, 42, separated from his first wife in 2016. That same year he met Lisa on the set of the film Split and they began a relationship that culminated in a modest wedding away from the media. Lisa is a native of Philadelphia, a city McAvoy has already adopted as his new home, he told a newspaper.

Freddie, famous for starring in the hit series The Good Doctor, confessed in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that he had gotten married. When the host asked him about the ring on his finger, he said, “Yes, it’s a wedding ring. Yes, I got married. It’s funny that since I’ve been wearing this ring, people have been asking me if I’m married, so I thought I should clarify.” Although he did not reveal his wife’s name, he confirmed that she is an English girl.

5. Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani met in 2014, when they were both judges on the singing show The Voice. A year later, they started dating.

7. Jennifer López and Ben Affleck

I see him reading, and it’s something I have to do. I love him because he is the same. I finally found someone who would happily sit quietly with me and read. We’re 80 and 7 at the same time, and it works well.”
