1. Beyonce and Jay-Z

Beyonce loves a surprise album drop, and she took the same approach to her wedding. In 2008, the Single Ladies hitmaker was single no more when she wed rapper Jay in an intimate ceremony held at a penthouse in New York, with guests including Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. Fans only got a sneak peek of the ceremony when they aired video footage of the event during their On the Run concert six years later.

2. Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer

Trainwreck star Amy is never one to abide by convention. But she still managed to shock her fans by marrying her chef boyfriend of only a couple of months, Chris Fischer, in a ceremony held on 13 February 2018 in Malibu, California. Amy walked down the aisle in a white Monique Lhuillier dress, the first she had tried on, while Chris donned a classic suit. Celebrity guests at the nuptials included Jennifer Lawrence and Chelsea Handler.

3. Margot Robbie and Tom Ackerley

The I, Tonya star met her guy Tom in 2013 on a film set. And in keeping with their low-key relationship, they slipped off to her native Australia for a secret wedding with family and close friends, away from the prying eyes of Hollywood in 2016. Details of Margot's Byron Bay wedding later emerged, and one photo showed the actress posing in a bohemian-style wedding gown.

4. Emily Ratajkowski and Sebastian Bear-McClard

Gone Girl actress Emily Ratajkowski surprised us all this weekend when she tied the knot with her boyfriend of just weeks in a surprise courthouse wedding in New York City. Eschewing a classic white dress for a mustard suit and black veiled hat, the model had a very modern ceremony, with Internet sensation Josh Ostrovsky was in attendance as a witness. The couple haven't been dating for long. They were first linked to one and other earlier this month, after they were spotted kissing ahead of Valentine's Day in Los Angeles.

5. Allison Williams and Ricky Van Veen

The Girls star's openness in the hit TV show doesn't extend to her personal life, and the first the world learned of her September 2015 wedding to CollegeHumor co-founder Ricky Van Veen was when the brunette beauty posted an Instagram photo of herself hand-in-hand with her groom in a gorgeous custom Oscar de la Renta gown. In a random twist, the ceremony was officiated by Hollywood great Tom Hanks. Now that's BIG!

6. Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

The former That '70s Show co-stars began dating in 2012 and became engaged two years later. The A-list pair secretly married in July 2015 with a ceremony held in Oak Glen, California. And Ashton previously revealing that they made a "ninja effort" to keep their nuptials private, because they didn't want to scream their vows over the noise of helicopters circling them above.

7. Tyrese Gibson and Samantha Lee

Not only was Tyrese Gibson’s Valentine’s Day wedding in 2017 a shock, he also kept his new wife’s identity under wraps. However, TMZ reporters were quick to track down the lucky lady, revealing it was social worker Samantha Lee. The marriage came less than a year after Fast and Furious star Tyrese made a public plea for a "smart, confident, educated, self-sufficient" woman to come into his life.
