12 of the best low-key celebrity weddings

Celebrities are known for all-out weddings. Why not? They have the money to pull them off and it’s sort-of become expected. However, not everyone bought into the expectation, with some famous couples keeping it very low-key over the years.

Without the glitz and glamour, weddings often become more about the people getting married than those attending.

Here are our favourite low-key weddings to inspire you.

The ‘Perfect’ singer married his longtime love Cherry Seaborn, though no one is quite sure when. The secret ceremony is reported to have been a small affair on Sheeran’s estate though no one has ever managed to confirm an exact date or details.

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth 

This spur-of-the-moment wedding took place on Cyrus’ Nashville farmhouse after a very tumultuous relationship between the two. Sadly, the amazing Christmastime intimate ceremony didn’t end in happily ever after as the two have since divorced.

Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio

It wasn’t a long wedding, much like the ceremony. The couple wed in Judge Charles Perry’s chambers in a ceremony that was kept secret till the last minute.

This mega-star couple tied the knot at Jay Z’s New York apartment with just a couple of friends in attendance. Very little has been revealed about this intimate ceremony. In the few snippets shared by the couple since, the ceremony looked lavish, even though it was small, because that’s what low-key is when you’re Beyonce.

Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin

This couple who are not unfamiliar with the spotlight had fans confused by first denying and then confirming their courthouse wedding. They have since splashed out with a major ceremony and even a Yotube series about their big nuptuals. But first they did it all by themselves.

Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart

These two took it so low-key they didn’t even have a proper venue. They got married in a passageway of a farmhouse in Ohio.

Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig

James Bond might be lavish but the actor who plays him clearly is not. These two got married in a ceremony which only had four people in attendance. They have kept tight-lipped ever since, only announcing that the wedding had indeed happened.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

Who says you’ll regret getting married in Vegas? Again, this couple did hold a larger, more formal ceremony, but first they decided to get hitched in the City of Sin just before the Billboard Music Awards. Talk about spontaneous.

Amanda Seyfried married her husband Thomas Sadoksi with nothing but an officiant and the countryside. The two took off to elope in an extremely private ceremony. No fuss at all.

Another simple courthouse wedding. These two kept a super tight budget of $142 (around R2600) for their wedding with both in simple ensembles.

This short and quick ceremony between the iconic Frank Sinatra and angelic Mia Farrow was controversial because of their age gap, Sinatra was 30 years her senior. This could be why they opted for a private small ceremony at a friends instead of a big show.
