Los Angeles - Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have got married.

The Veronica Mars actress the Parenthood actor tied the knot at the Beverly Hills County Clerk's Office in Los Angeles California, in a no-frills ceremony on Thursday, but it proved emotional for the blonde beauty who cried throughout.

Eye witnesses told gossip website TMZ the couple only went to the clerk office to get their marriage licence but a court employee suggested they could get hitched straight away, so they agreed and the ceremony took place at a nearby courtroom.

A photographer was said to be present at the ceremony.

An intimate wedding

The 38-year-old actor and the Forgetting Sarah Marshall star - who have seven-month-old daughter Lincoln together - first announced their engagement back in January 2010 but they decided not to tie the knot until gay marriage was legal in California.

Following the US Supreme Court's decision in June 2013 to recognise legally married same-sex couples in the state, Dax popped the question to the 33-year-old star again later that month.

Kristen has previously expressed a desire to have an intimate wedding in a courthouse.

She said: "I feel like we get enough attention in our daily lives and we just want something sort of private that involves pen and paper."
