The couple become husband and wife

Natalie Portman married choreographer Benjamin Millepied in a small Jewish ceremony over the weekend.

The couple’s evening nuptials took place in the grounds of a private home in Big Sur, California and were reportedly witnessed by celebrity guests including Ivanka Trump and Macaulay Culkin.

‘It’s one of Natalie‘s favourite places – whenever she needs a break from LA she goes there,’ a friend told In Touch magazine earlier this year.

‘This wedding is for their closest friends and family. It will be a very relaxed affair. They’re not sending out invites. Natalie may not even buy a new dress!’

Natalie, 31, met 35-year-old Benjamin on the set of hit ballet movie Black Swan in 2009, for which she won the Best Actress Oscar last year.

They welcomed their baby boy Aleph in June 2011.
