Washington, May 9 : In order to keep her marriage plans secret, American pop singer Mariah Carey had told pals that wedding with rapper beau Nick Cannon was just a video shoot.
The 38-year-old singer convinced everyone the couple were just shooting extra scenes for the video Bye Bye, when they went off to her Windermere home with just four pals.
"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," Contactmusic quoted Carey as telling People.
"Only about four people knew we were going down there to get married," she added.
The couple also took with them boxes of Maine lobster and cases of Dom Perignon champagne over to the island, with Carey reportedly picking up the wedding cake herself.
Carey and Cannon exchanged vows on 30 April (08).
