Bollywood actor Aftab Shivdasani married his long time girlfriend Nin Dusanj at a private ceremony attended by both their families recently.

Just when the tabloids got tired of churning out gossip stories around Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra's wedding, the duo decided to secretly tie the knot in Italy. Secret weddings have become a norm of late with actor John Abraham and singer Arijit Singh also going for clandestine nuptials.

We list out some high-profile names who chose low-key weddings.

John Abraham-Priya Runchal: He had warned us before. He had said he might get married on spur of a moment. He did exactly that when he married girlfriend Priya Runchal while holidaying in the US. The private ceremony was attended by family and close friends. The actor tweeted a few days after the wedding on January 3 this year - "Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2014! May this year bring you love, good fortune and joy. Love, John and Priya Abraham."
