Ashton, 27, and Demi, 42, married last month after dating for two years and their wedding was one of Hollywood's best kept secrets. The couple decided to tie the knot in early September and it took them just a couple of weeks to organise their wedding day. They treated it like a top-secret operation and enlisted the help of their most trusted friends and a crack team of experts.

They married on 24 September 2005 in a traditional Kabbalah evening ceremony at their Beverly Hills Estate in California. The ceremony began with first Ashton and his father walking down the aisle of their living room, closely followed at approximately 9pm by Demi and her 3 daughters. The couple chose a delicate blend of ivory, cream and white for their wedding's colour scheme.

The guests in attendance were 45 of their close family and friends and included Demi's 3 daughters and ex-husband Bruce Willis. Their guest list included celebrities Lucy Liu, James Van Der Beek, Wilmer Valderrama and Danny Masterson. The guests enjoyed a mixture of soft jazz piano music and classical guiter music during Ashton and Demi's fairy tale wedding.

After the formalities were over the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a romantic celebratory dinner party in their magically decorated backyard which was transformed with candlelit glass votives, ivory dahlias, white cymbidium orchids hanging from birch branches and small bags filled with water and wrapped in silver thread.

The catering was courtesy of a Beverly Hills firm who provided mouth-watering appetisers including spicy tuna tartar served on wontons, wasabi caviar with creme fraiche on purple potatoes and seared beef and quince paste with mint served on crostini. The menu for the sit-down dinner included rib-eye roast with red wine shallot sauce, grilled halibut and chicken curry, yukon and sweet potato mash, grilled white and green asparagus, roasted broccoli rabe, sauteed corn and arugula with olive oil, lemon and sea salt. After dinner the guests gathered to watch as Demi and Ashton cut into their huge vanilla cream gateau decorated with chocolate painted circles.

Their low-key intimate and truly elegant wedding went without a hitch.
