Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell tie the knot

Suspicions were raised when they appeared at LAX airport wearing what looked to be matching wedding bands – now Evan Rachel Wood and Billy Elliot star Jamie Bell have confirmed the happy news that they are in fact man and wife.

The True Blood actress shared her joy on her Twitter page, writing: “Words cannot describe the happiness i am feeling. Overwhelming.” In another tweet, she added: “Song of the day “(today I met) the boy I”m gonna marry”.”

Evan and Jamie, who have tattoos of each other”s initials, tied the knot on Tuesday during a small ceremony in California with only family and friends present. The bride wore a gown by Carolina Herrera.

The couple were rumoured to have got engaged in January, though they never confirmed this. Jamie, who hails from County Durham in the North East of England, was spotted last December shopping for rings.

Their paths first crossed in 2005, when they filmed a music video together for Green Day”s Wake Me Up When September Ends. They dated for a while, but split – then Evan went on to date rocker Marilyn Manson, getting engaged to him in 2010. It was not meant to be, however – the pair split and 25-year-old Evan reconciled with Jamie.
