Cameron Diaz is officially off the market, after she married rocker Benji Madden at their home in LA on Monday night.

Cameron has long been something of an icon for single women, but Benji put a ring on it, the actress was spotted wearing an engagement ring over Christmas, and last night the pair tied the knot in an intimate ceremony after dating for 8 months.

The couple told People magazine: “We couldn’t be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends.”

Their representative said the couple “were married (Monday) evening in an intimate ceremony at their home in Los Angeles”.

Nicole Richie, who is married to Madden’s twin brother Joel, played cupid in the romance and she reportedly was bridesmaid during the nuptials along with Diaz’s close friend Drew Barrymore.

Nicole and Joel’s 5-year-old son Sparrow acted as ring bearer during the ceremony too.

Other wedding guests included Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherpoon and Samantha Ronson, according to reports.

Diaz has previously told how she has never felt any pressure to marry, despite consistent media questions, saying that it’s not natural to be monogamous.

She told InStyle magazine: “A lot of people chase after it because they’ve been told ‘This equals happiness’. They chase it, they get it, and they find out ‘Why did I think this was going to make me happy? I’m miserable!’

“I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it’s been ingrained in us to do these things.”

So it would seem that Madden, 35 is the one for the 42 year old.

Rumours were fuelled they were planning to wed when a rehearsal dinner was staged on Sunday, January 4.

The intimate affair saw only a small group of people attend, according to Us Weekly, guests were offered drinks as they waited for their meal, which began at roughly 7.30pm. The group stayed at the venue for three hours before retiring for the evening.

Wedding planner Yifat Oren, who planned ceremonies for Reese, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman and Barrymore, was seen hanging around the mansion in the morning.

Cameron and Benji have known each for over a decade, but only began dating last summer.

The question just remains what was her dress like? Who did she wear and did the actress opt for something Princess-like or a look that’s a little more modern?
