She’s kept everyone guessing about her marital status since she was spotted wearing a silver band under her engagement ring earlier this year, but it looks like Natalie Portman has finally tied the knot this weekend!

The Oscar-winning actress wed fiancé Benjamin Millepied in the picture-perfect town of Big Sur, a stunning coastal resort in California.

The romantic wedding, staged at twilight, is believed to have taken place at 8pm in the grounds of a private estate and the couple opted for a traditional Jewish ceremony. Just 60 guests were reported to have been invited to witness the marriage and celebrate with the newlyweds in relaxed style at the reception.

Natalie looked gorgeous in a tea-length Rodarte dress with long sheer chiffon sleeves embellished at the shoulders with pretty fabric flowers. She completed her look with a circlet of flowers in her hair, long veil and ballet pump-style shoes.

After getting engaged in December 2010, the pair originally sparked rumours that they had tied the knot in secret back in February 2011 when they walked the red carpet together at the Academy Awards wearing his and hers bands on their third fingers. They also have a one-year-old son together named Aleph.
