Crack open the champagne - Hollywood A-List couple Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have tied the knot.

The pair, who have been engaged for three years, are believed to have exchanged vows at a secret wedding ceremony on the grounds of their Bel Air estate on Wednesday.

Around 70 people attended the ceremony.

It seems to have been a star-studded affair, with Jennifer's former Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow, TV presenter Chelsea Handler, Ellen DeGeneres, star of the US Office John Krasinski and his wife, and British actress Emily Blunt all attending.

The wedding comes days before Theroux's 44th birthday, the date on which he proposed back in 2012.

Elegant

Aniston and Theroux were introduced by their mutual friend, Ben Stiller, but became romantically involved when working on comedy Wanderlust in 2010.

For the big day, the couple transformed the grounds of their home into an elegant secret garden - complete with delicate fairy lights and plush ottoman benches. A large deck and a bar area were also erected in the back garden for guests.

Before the ceremony, a large tiered wedding cake complete with a his 'n' hers Muppets cake topper was spotted being carried into the house. A pastor was also seen entering the house holding a bible.

Both Jennifer and Justin have been secretive about their nuptials, with pal, Ellen DeGeneres, joking she was scared to go on summer holidays in case she missed the big day.

Admitted

A year into their engagement Aniston admitted she already felt like a married couple. And earlier this year she spoke about their plans for the big day.

"There's a big discussion in our house right now," she told InStyle magazine.

"Do you just do it and say screw it? Or do you try desperately to get away with (a secret ceremony) where you don't have any fun because you're hiding in a cave somewhere?"

Aniston was previously married to Brad Pitt for five years from 2000 to 2005.

They announced their split in January 2005 and Pitt went on to marry actress Angelina Jolie in August 2014.

Theroux asked Jennifer to be his wife with an eight-carat radiant cut diamond ring worth over €500,000.
