Scarlett 'ties the knot' in secret

Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson has married actor Ryan Reynolds in a hush-hush ceremony in Canada, according to reports.

The couple were determined to keep the wedding as low-key as possible, opting for a small service in a remote wilderness resort outside Vancouver, British Columbia, on Saturday.

Guests included the bride's mother, Melanie Sloan, and her brother, Adrian Johansson, Scarlett's representative told People magazine.
The actress, 23, announced their engagement on May 5, by showing off a £16,500 three-carat diamond ring at the Met Costume Gala Ball in New York.

She started dating Reynolds, 31, at the start of last year shortly after he parted from his then fiancee, singer Alanis Morissette.

At the beginning of September, Scarlett vowed that they would not sell photos to a magazine and described lavish celebrity weddings as "awful".

"I'm a private person, so, obviously, I'm pretty sure our wedding will be as private as possible."

Johansson has also said she was excited about her upcoming wedding because she was keen to become an honorary Canadian.

It had been widely reported she planned to postpone the ceremony until after the United States presidential election, which takes place at the beginning of November.
