Congratulations are due to Cameron Diaz, who has welcomed in the New Year by becoming a Mrs., after tying the knot with her rocker boyfriend Benji Madden.

The Charlie's Angels actress, 42, and Good Charlotte musician partner, 35, said "I Do" in a candlelit ceremony at their home in Beverly Hills last night. 

They "were married [Monday] evening in an intimate ceremony at their home in Los Angeles," a rep for the pair told People

"We couldn't be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends," the couple said in a statement.

Benji and Cameron have been dating since last May and got engaged just before Christmas, after an introduction by Nicole Richie, who is married to Benji's twin brother Joel Madden.

Both Nicole and Joel attended the wedding, along with celebrity guests including Gwyneth Paltrow, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron's long-time Hollywood pal, and Charlie's Angels co-star, Drew Barrymore - who had a lead role as bridesmaid.

Celebrity wedding planners Yifat Oren and Stefanie Cove, who have overseen the nuptials of Anne Hathaway and Natalie Portman, were in charge of proceedings. 

It's not yet known what Cameron wore for her big day but it seems the theme was low-key and stylish. The event is said to have taken place inside the couple's LA home, with a reception on the lawn, in a tent decorated with bunches of white flowers and candles.

Around 90 guests attended the party and Benji's six-year-old nephew Sparrow (Nicole and Joel's son) was ring-bearer.

"It was a big wedding, but they still managed to make it feel very personal. Only their families and very special friends attended," the source said.

Cameron has previously dated Justin Timberlake, Jared Leto and baseball star Alex Rodriguez, while Benji has been linked to Paris Hilton and was once engaged to Australian actress Sophie Monk.

Asked why she had never got married in an interview in 2012, Cameron replied, "It's hard to say. It just wasn't the thing I was drawn to... I certainly didn't want it in my 20s. Or my 30s."

On the topic of children, she added,  "I don't need to have the children in my life be a part of my literal flesh. And anyway, there's still a possibility of that, I ain't that old."
