Los Angeles - Natalie Portman has married Benjamin Millepied.

The Black Swan actress and her French-born choreographer fiance tied the knot in a Jewish ceremony at a private home near Big Sur in California at 20:00 on Saturday, according to Us Weekly.

The simple ceremony was held under a chuppah in front of just 60 guests.

Natalie, 31, and Benjamin met on the set of Black Swan and welcomed their first child, son Aleph, into the world 13 months ago.

It was previously revealed that the couple would marry in Big Sur as the place is special to the actress.

A friend said: "Natalie and Ben will marry in Big Sur. It's one of Natalie's favourite places - whenever she needs a break from LA she goes there.

"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!"

When Natalie won the Best Actress Oscar for Black Swan in 2011, she paid tribute to Benjamin, calling him her "beautiful love" and thanked him for giving her the "most important role of my life".

At this year's Academy Awards there was speculation they had already tied the knot as they both wore bands on their wedding ring fingers.
