Emily Blunt marries in Italy

EMILY Blunt has married The Office star John Krasinski.

The British actress and the US star - who began dating in 2008 - held an intimate ceremony at Italy's Lake Como, with celebrity guests including George Clooney and Elisabetta Canalis.

The pair had been staying at George's estate on Lake Como for the last week leading up to the wedding on Saturday, July 10.

A source at the event revealed: "It was an outdoor ceremony and absolutely beautiful. It was an official ceremony. They are husband and wife.

"Emily didn't want a big fuss or a Hollywood wedding. It was a case of the smaller the better - they flew all the wedding party out."

The pair became engaged after a year of dating, when 30-year-old Krasinski got down on one knee with a 3-carat Edwardian diamond and platinum ring, rumoured to have cost around $100,000.

The actors were not the only Hollywood pair to marry yesterday - country music star Carrie Underwood and Canadian sportsman Mike Fisher invited showbiz friends including Simon Cowell, Faith Hill and Garth Brooks to their nuptials at a hotel - which they had hired out especially - in Greensboro, Georgia.
