For these celebrity couples who eloped, a big wedding wasn't that important. With hectic lives, sometimes celebrities in love just want a simple ceremony without all the fuss. While it's hard to imagine celebrities not having multi-million dollar weddings, these celebrity couples who eloped hardly spent anything.
Janet Jackson and her honey are a perfect example of celebrity couples who eloped. They had one of the most secretive elopements. Though they married in 2012, it was almost a year before they publicly announced it. It made for a wonderful year long honeymoon without being bombarded with relationship questions.
While James Bond may not mind being the center of attention, Daniel Craig married Rachel Weisz in a super simple, quiet ceremony. The two friends finally realized how they felt about each other and asked their four closest friends to stand as witnesses. Everyone else had to wait until they broke the news later on.
Neither of these celebrities are known for being exactly low key. Even years after their secret ceremony, they're constantly in the spotlight. Actually, their annual vow renewals tend to be more extravagant and public than their original marriage.
While many thought Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green wouldn't last due to a 12 year age difference, the two have proven they have what it takes to last. After a quick elopement in 2010, the two settled down and started their family. Both now seem happier than ever.
When you think of eloping, Las Vegas may be your first thought. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos thought the same thing. They had a true spur of the moment wedding in the middle of Sin City.

Though many doubted the couple would ever marry, Calista Flockhart and Harrison Ford opted for an ultra private wedding after eight years together. A short, quiet ceremony at the New Mexico governor's mansion was all they needed to exchange their vows. Turns out big stars don't always need overdone weddings.
Unlike many celebrity couples, Leighton Meester and Adam Brody didn't wait long to get married. They surprised everyone by getting hitched several months after announcing their engagement. What was even more surprising was their decision to elope instead of planning a large wedding.
It's a true fairytale romance with Ginnifer Goodwin and Josh Dallas. Not only are they in love onscreen in “Once Upon a Time,” they're happily married in real life too. They decided to keep their actual marriage a secret, eloping less than a year after getting engaged.
Of all the celebrity elopements, Simon Halls and Matt Bomer probably kept their secret best. It was approximately three years before the public knew about the marriage. It actually wasn't until someone saw them and their children together that Bomer officially confirmed their marriage.
Despite having most of their married life televised on reality shows, Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott's wedding was actually quick, simple and private. They spent many seemingly happy years together before splitting up. At least they have their own reality TV show as a reminder of their time together.
Jessica Alba and Cash Warren's wedding was more of a shotgun wedding than anything. The two quickly eloped at a Beverly Hills courthouse before their child was born just a few weeks later. Turns out the quick wedding was perfect as the two are still going strong and even had a second child.
Despite always living in the spotlight, these couples somehow managed to make one of the most important moments in their life private. Whether they just wanted peace or made a spur of the moment decision, they're just as happy as their more flamboyant celebrity counterparts. As a celebrity, would you prefer a massive wedding or an elopement?
