Celebrities love their privacy, and some prefer to keep even the most public events under wraps. From the 1990s to this past September, here are 12 couples who shockingly tied the knot in private, according to Us Weekly. We have to admit, however, some of these couples have called it quits since the hush-hush occasions.

Hailey and Justin are the newest couple to tie the knot with a secret ceremony. The two were married in New York in September after being engaged for two months.

2. Beyoncé and Jay-Z
