After five years of dating Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel finally tie the knot

On Wednesday, the 150-strong wedding party went to the beach to enjoy live music and fireworks.

The following day, guests sat around open fires

and feasted on local cheese, olives and wine.

‘It’s great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends,’ Justin, 31, and Jessica, 30, told Now’s sister site People.com in a statement.

The pair kept their guests guessing about where they’d exchange vows, even suggesting that they were heading to Germany forthe nuptials, before revealing the romantic location.

Justin and his new bridebriefly split in March 2011 and vowed to stay friends, but were reconciled.

The SexyBack singer realised Jessica is ‘a really, really, really special person’.
