Hong Kong actor Tony Leung has married long term partner Carina Lau in a Buddhist-inspired ceremony in Bhutan, according to reports.

The couple's wedding was attended by royalty from the Himalayan country as well as prize-winning art-house director Wong Kar-Wai.

Leung won a best actor gong at Cannes in 2000 for In The Mood for Love and starred with Lau in Infernal Affairs.

Hong Kong's Apple Daily newspaper said local monks presided over the wedding.

Infernal Affairs was Hong Kong's biggest box office hit in 2002 and scooped best film, best director and best actor at the Hong Kong Film Awards the following year.

The film was remade by Martin Scorsese in 2006 as four-times Oscar-winner The Departed.

Leung has also starred in Ang Lee's controversial drama Lust, Caution, while Lau has appeared in Ashes of Time and 2046.
