Mariah Carey managed to keep her wedding plans a secret from even her closest friends by convincing them all her trip to the Bahamas with then-boyfriend Nick Cannon was all part of her video plans.
Cannon plays the singer's love interest in her new promo for Bye Bye and Carey convinced everyone the couple were just shooting extra scenes when they jetted off to her Windermere home with select pals.
But the couple had already decided to wed there.
Carey tells People magazine, "We only told people who had to know... If we brought a million people with us, it would've been obvious we weren't shooting a video.
"Only about four people knew we were going down there to get married."
The couple flew boxes of Maine lobster and cases of Dom Perignon champagne over to the island, and Carey reportedly picked up the wedding cake herself and discreetly carried it with her.
Carey's best pal, rapper Da Brat, helped organise a last-minute bachelorette party before the singer became Mrs. Cannon.
Carey and Cannon exchanged vows on the patio of the singer's island retreat on 30 April (08).
