Mark Wahlberg has gotten married.

The 38-year-old actor tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend, model Rhea Durham, in an intimate ceremony yesterday (01.08.09).

A source at the Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Beverly Hills said the couple looked thrilled to be saying their vows in front of the 12 assembled guests, including their three children, five-year-old Ella Rae - who was a flower girl - Michael, three and Brendan Joseph, 10 months.

The insider added: "Rhea looked like a princess and beyond stunning. Mark looked ecstatic."

The 31-year-old bride wore a white strapless Marchesa gown with silver embroidery, with a diamond bracelet and earrings, while Mark donned a dark suit.

The day before the wedding, Mark had been seen looking "happy and relaxed" at the church, before joining friends and family for a small pre-wedding party.

Earlier this year, Mark declared his intentions to marry Rhea, who he has been dating since 2001.

He said: "We're talking about August. It will be in a Catholic church somewhere. "Catholic church, small, family only, no media."
