After all, there’s nothing romantic about strategically-placed paparazzi or helicopters humming loudly above your reception venue. From Mariah and Nick to Miranda and Orlando, these celeb spouses prove that you don’t need a fussy affair in order to live happily ever after.

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green
Mega-star Fox and her actor husband chose to keep things small in a private ceremony on Hawaii’s Big Island in 2010.

Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom
Only a month after they confirmed their engagement, the ridiculously good-looking duo quietly married in the summer of 2010.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski
Two years after making things official with husband John Krasinski, actress Emily Blunt recently described her marriage to Manhattan magazine: “All I can say is that it’s an effing blast. It’s just great and I’m so happy.”

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Carey and Cannon shocked fans in 2008 when they married unexpectedly after only six weeks of dating. Since then, the new parents have renewed their vows each year — most recently in Paris.

Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart
After more than eight years together, this super-secret couple wed at the Governor’s Mansion in Santa Fe, NM in the summer of 2010.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos
Ripa and Consuelos prove that the couple that works together, stays together. The actor joined the cast of All My Children in 1995 alongside his on-screen lover and soon-to-be wife. The two instantly connected, leading them to wed in Vegas only a year later.

Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz
The Oscar-winning pair exchanged vows in a small ceremony in the Bahamas during July of 2010.

My husband and I eloped and have been married 11 years!

They lasted?!!  Most of the marriages mentioned here have only been since 2010.  Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos being married in 1995 should be given some due, but most of the others haven't proven much of anything lasting in just 3 years.  I wish them all well, but I just don't think 3 years is long enough to call these "lasting" marriages.
