After a six-year engagement, Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher’s long-awaited wedding ceremony turned out to be the most intimate of affairs: Just six guests attended the traditional Jewish ceremony on March 15 in Paris.
And those six had to move quickly. In an effort to keep the celebration quiet, the bride and groom gave their loved ones “very little notice” ahead of the nuptials, according to Australia’s WHO magazine.
In an interview a year ago, Fisher revealed her yearning for a private ceremony. “It’s very important to me to have a beautiful ritual celebrated with my family and friends,” she said. “And when you are in the public eye, to keep that private and to make it happen without it being really visible is really difficult.”

Baron Cohen, 38, and Fisher, 34, have been together for about eight years, have a 2-year-old daughter, Olive. They spent a week at the Hotel Ritz in Paris and were photographed walking around the nearby Place Vendome wearing matching berets.
They are now back in London, where Fisher is filming new movie, Burke and Hare.
