Cameron Diaz Confirms Wedding
CAMERON DIAZ married Benji Madden last night in a sunset ceremony in the garden of their home. The service was attended by a Hollywood who's who, including Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Drew Barrymore.
"We couldn't be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends," the couple - who began dating in May and got engaged just before Christmas - told People last night.

Rumours of the impending nuptials had emerged in recent weeks, with Diaz celebrating with her friends at an LA hotel before the couple were joined by their family at local restaurant Il Cielo on Saturday night for what appeared to be a celebratory dinner. A tent was erected in the garden of the gated property where they both live on Sunday, and yesterday flowers and candles were added ahead of the ceremony.
More than 90 guests attended the wedding, which took place inside the property before moving outside for the reception, with Nicole Richie - wife of Madden's twin brother Joel - and Drew Barrymore acting as bridesmaids.
"It was a big wedding, but they still managed to make it feel very personal. Only their families and very special friends attended," a source told People. "It all felt very down-to-earth and sweet. Guests arrived smiling and almost seemed giddy. Everyone was excited to be a part of the wedding. Getting married is the next step when you are totally in love and comfortable with someone. Cameron has found true happiness."
