Anne Hathaway, famed for The Dark Knight Rises and The Princess Diaries franchise has tied the knot in Big Sur, California to her now husband, actor Adam Shulman.

Hathaway and Schulman were photographed in the sunset looking joyous, in her stunning tulle VALENTINO wedding gown. The designer, a close friend of the actress, let the world know earlier this month that he had created the dress for her. She also wore a dress of his at last year's Oscars which she hosted alongside James Franco, and thus knew that Valentino was the right man for the job. Anne Hathaway’s wedding bucked the trend, by starting in the evening – the couple married around 5pm.

Perez Hilton reports that they wed in front of 180 guests in a beautiful ceremony at sunset, taking place at a private estate in Big Sur, California. Vogue reports that the couple hired Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove to plan the wedding, and was allegedly 'inspired by nature'.

After the ceremony the guests and the happy couple were shuttled to the venue for the continued celebrations and were entertained by the jazz band American Social Club, who, it has been reported, had no idea who they were performing for until just half an hour before going on stage.

Anne Hathaway and Adam Schulman had been engaged since last November. The couple had been dating since 2008 after the breakdown of her previous relationship with shamed real estate developer Raffaello Follieri who was jailed for fraud. The ring that Hathaway hopes to wear for the rest of her life was designed by Schulman himself.
