The couple wed on a beach in the Virgin Islands
Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger has released a photograph of her surprise beach wedding to country singer Kenny Chesney.

The pair wed on the Virgin Island of St John, where Chesney lives, in front of close friends and family on Monday.

Zellweger, 36, and Chesney, 37, reportedly met in January at a tsunami benefit concert.

The Bridget Jones actress wore a strapless off-white dress from designer Carolina Herrera.

Chesney walked barefoot on the private beach and wore his trademark Stetson hat, which he wears when he performs.

The couple held their wedding reception at Chesney's gated mansion.

Chesney is one of the US' biggest country stars, with two albums in the country top 10 chart.

His 1999 hit You Had Me From Hello was inspired by a line uttered by Zellweger in her breakthrough film Jerry Maguire.

Among the prophetic lyrics were "and you were in my future as far as I could see" and "You completely stole my heart".

This is the first marriage for both Zellweger and Chesney.
