Celebrity Weddings That Were Small and Intimate

When we think about celebrity weddings, we often think about the large, extravagant affairs. After all, who can forget Katie Price arriving at her wedding to Peter Andre in that beautiful, fairy tale Cinderella carriage, or the beautiful wedding venue that Madonna and Guy Ritchie hired in the Scottish Highlands? Whilst these celebrity couples may have long since split, there are some celebrity couples who haven’t felt the need to have a large and extravagant wedding. Some of these are below.


Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz

Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz met on the set of Dream House in 2010. They got married in a small ceremony in New York in 2011. Very little is known about their marriage, but it is believed that the only guests included Daniel’s teenage daughter, Rachel’s five year old son, and a couple of family friends. Although they are worth millions between them, they didn’t feel the need to celebrate like most Hollywood celebrities.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie

When news broke of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s secret wedding, many of their fans and followers were in shock. The secret low-key ceremony took place on August 23rd 2014, and was a ‘relaxed day full of fun and laughter’. The couple’s six children were involved, with Maddox and Pax walking Angelina down the aisle, Zahara and Vivienne acting as bridesmaids, and Shiloh and Knox bearing the rings. The children also helped to design Angelina’s wedding dress, whilst Brad is said to have just picked a suit from his closet.

Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

Supermodel Miranda Kerr, and Lord of the Rings actor Orlando Bloom got married less than one month after becoming engaged in a secret ceremony that is still private to this day. The marriage was only revealed after they returned from the Caribbean, though rumours had been circling amongst the media after Miranda cancelled an appearance at a fashion engagement. Although this couple are no longer together, they are said to be good friends, and loving parents to their son Flynn.

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon

Actor Nick Cannon, and Singer Mariah Carey married at a small intimate ceremony in the Bahamas in 2008. Only close friends and family members were invited to the wedding, and they surprisingly got married after just six weeks of dating. Although the couple have recently filed for divorce papers, they have both openly stated that they are determined to give their children a normal upbringing.

Small and Intimate Can Be Ideal

Although not all of the couples mentioned above are still together, the small and intimate ceremonies that they enjoyed were romantic, and designed to illustrate their love for each other. Most ‘real world’ couples don’t have the same stresses and strains that celebrity couples have, and the divorce rate is much lower for those outside of the celebrity spotlight. Websites like UK Wedding Savings can help you to find small and intimate wedding venues that are ideal for a low key ceremony. They can also help you to keep the costs low.
