In the age of the paparazzi, celebs go to great lengths to keep their wedding day a private affair. Some keep the wedding a secret from guests, while others fly to private islands. Is there a Pinterest board for that?
In 2015, notoriously secretive stars got hitched with few details released to the press. On the flipside, we also had a refreshing number of nuptials made public for fans. Check out how some of our favourite couples of 2015 said ‘I do’.
Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden, January 5
In a first wedding for the actress and rocker, Cameron Diaz became Nicole Richie’s sister in law and married Good Charlotte frontman Benji Madden during a private ceremony in their Beverly Hills home. The two were introduced by Richie and engaged for 17 days before saying ‘I do’. Rock and roll!
Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter, February 14
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch married girlfriend Sophie Hunter this past February in an English church dating back to the 12th century. Famous Brits in attendance for the wedding included Tom Hiddleston and Andrew Scott.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, February 3
The two actors celebrated their marriage twice, first in a private ceremony at the couple’s Hollywood home, then partying with friends and family over a weekend on Depp’s private island. You know, just a typical wedding backdrop.
Tina Knowles and Richard Lawson, April 12
Beyonce and Solange’s mom tied the knot in April with her daughters and Kelly Rowland by her side. Also a bridesmaid? Lawson’s daughter, the ageless actress Bianca Lawson.
Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed, April 26
The two vampires were friends for years while Somerhalder was dating his Vampire Diaries co-star Nina Dobrev and Twilight star Reed was married to her first husband Paul McDonald. The two ended their relationships around the same time and dated for nine months before getting married in a lavish, fairytale-inspired wedding.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux, August 5
The notoriously private couple held a surprise wedding at their Bel Air home in what guests thought was a birthday party for Theroux. The small guest list was made up of big names, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jason Bateman, Howard Stern, Lisa Kudrow, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, and Chelsea Handler.
Allison Williams and Ricky Van Ween, September 19
Girls actress Allison Williams wed her longtime boyfriend and College Humor founder Ricky Van Week in a beautiful ranch ceremony.
Whitney Port and Tim Rosenman, November 7
The Hills star and fashion designer Whitney Port looked runway ready during her wedding to Tim Rosenman when the two wed in Palm Springs.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, November 28
The Magic Mike star and Modern Family actress did the unthinkable in Hollywood when they said ‘I do’ in front of friends and family in a large and lavish Florida ceremony this November – they used social media like the rest of us. Rather than waiting for million dollar offers from magazines, Vergara was a typical (and relateable) bride, posting pics of her dress, the flowers, the cake, and the reception on her Instagram page. How refreshing.
