Actress Renee Zellweger married country music star Kenny Chesney in the Caribbean on Monday.
Renee Zellweger inspired one of Kenny Chesney's biggest hits
The Bridget Jones and Chicago actress, 36, tied the knot with US chart-topper Chesney, 37, in front of close friends and family on the US Virgin Islands.
Zellweger's publicist said it was a small ceremony on the island of St John, where Chesney lives.
The pair are reported to have met at a tsunami concert in January, soon after she split from rock star Jack White.
Zellweger, who won an Oscar for Cold Mountain last year, had also recently been linked with Irish singer-songwriter Damien Rice.
At the ceremony, she wore a dress designed by Carolina Herrera and it was the first marriage for both, publicist Nanci Ryder said.
Chesney starts a three-and-a-half month US tour on Thursday
The reception was held at Chesney's house on the north side of the island, which has a population of 5,000 and is more than two-thirds national park.
But the couple will have to wait for their honeymoon. Chesney starts a 46-date, three-and-a-half month US tour on Thursday.
He currently has two CDs in the Billboard Top 10 country albums chart and was named Country Music Association entertainer of the year in November.
His 1999 hit You Had Me From Hello was inspired by a line his new wife said to Tom Cruise in 1996 film Jerry Maguire.
Zellweger also had Oscar nominations for Bridget Jones - in which her character grumbled about smug married couples - and Chicago.
She once dated Jim Carrey, her co-star in Me, Myself and Irene.
