Most celebrity couples opt for a star-studded ceremony in a lavish destination when it comes to tying the knot, but over the years some have chosen to have much more low-key affairs.

A select few famous pairings have even opted to elope rather than host a huge wedding, having chosen privacy over publicity when it comes to exchanging vows.

Couples such as Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher headed to abroad to tie the knot in the secret, while others such as Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas fled to Las Vegas for their nuptials.

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker headed to Las Vegas following the 2022 Grammy Awards earlier this year.

The mum-of-three, 43, and Blink-182 rocker Travis, 46, didn't obtain a marriage license however, so the wedding wasn't official, but they treated it as a warm-up for their big day.

Kravis shared a series of loved-up snaps on Instagram of their Vegas elopement, with Kourtney writing: “Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect."

Kourtney and Travis officially tied the knot on 15 May in Santa Barbara, in an intimate ceremony with only a handful of guests present.

The newly weds are reportedly planning a second wedding in Italy, which is said to be taking place in a matter of days with all of their loved ones in attendance.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Back in 2003, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin fled to California to tie the knot in secret, before heading to Mexico on a lavish honeymoon.

Coldplay frontman Chris, 45, and actress Gwyneth, 49, exchanged vows in a ceremony at a hotel in Southern California while Gwyneth was pregnant with the couple's first child.

The pair went on to welcome daughter Apple in 2004 and son Moses in 2006, before parting ways in 2016.

Gwyneth and Chris remain close friends, with the actress now being married to Brad Falchuk while Chris is in a relationship with Dakota Johnson.

Lily Allen and David Harbour

In 2020, Lily Allen and David Harbour headed to Las Vegas to secretly get married.

Singer Lily, 37, and Stranger Things actor David, 47, started dating in 2019 and rumours had started circulating that they had gotten engaged just before they announced they'd tied the knot.

The loved-up pair obtained their marriage license and a day later they exchanged vows in a ceremony that was officiated by an Elvis impersonator.

They shared their happy news on social media with a string of snaps from their big day, including one of Lily and David tucking into fast food after their nuptials with the singer's two daughters, Ethel and Marnie in tow.

Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas

Game Of Thrones star Sophie Turner and Jonas Brothers frontman Joe Jonas also fled to Vegas to tie the knot.

The couple, who are expecting their second child together, headed straight to the Sin City following the 2019 Billboard Music Awards.

Joe's bandmates and brothers, Nick and Kevin, attended the low-key ceremony, and Sophie, 26, and Joe, 32, exchanged ring pop sweets instead of traditional wedding bands.

Shortly after their first wedding, the couple hosted a lavish second ceremony in France surrounded by their friends and family.

Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski

Amanda Seyfried and Thomas Sadoski got married back in 2017, and they revealed that they eloped during an interview shortly afterwards.

Amanda, 36, and Thomas, 45, had a super low-key ceremony in the US, with none of their friends or family present.

Speaking on The Late Late Show with James Cordon, Thomas revealed the happy news, saying: "We eloped. We just took off into the country with an officiant and just the two of us, and we did our thing."

Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher got engaged in 2004 andm six years later, they headed off to Paris to tie the knot in secret.

The 50 year old comedian and actress Isla, 46, wed in a low-key Jewish ceremony in the French capital, following the birth of their first child Olive in 2007.

Their second daughter, Elula was born shortly after the ceremony in 2010, and the pair then welcomed a son, Montgomery, in 2015.

Sacha and Isla's romance has continued to go from strength to strength, and after previously living between London and Los Angeles, the couple and their three kids now reside in Sydney, Australia.
