'Intimate' wedding ceremony for Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr

Pirates Of The Caribbean heart-throb Orlando Bloom has married his Australian supermodel girlfriend Miranda Kerr in an "intimate" ceremony.

The couple began dating around three years ago and confirmed their engagement last month.



They tied the knot during a low-key ceremony in Los Angeles, according to reports.



The 33-year-old British film star and his new bride, 27, are thought to be embarking on their honeymoon.



News of the nuptials slipped out after upmarket Australian department store David Jones said Kerr, who is their "fashion ambassador", would be unable to attend a spring season launch next month as she will still be on honeymoon.



"I am enormously grateful to David Jones to have been given this time to enjoy such a special moment of my life," Kerr said in the statement.



"I look forward to coming back to Australia in the near future to celebrate with family and friends.



"David Jones very graciously released me during this period so we could celebrate an intimate ceremony and honeymoon together."



Bloom is one of Britain's hottest actors, having starred in some of the biggest film franchises in recent years.



He caught the attention of audiences in Peter Jackson's award-winning Lord Of The Rings movies as well as starring alongside Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Caribbean.



Kerr's first meeting with the actor was backstage at a Victoria's Secret lingerie fashion show in New York in 2006.



David Jones spokeswoman Colette Garnsey said: "Given the exiting news that Miranda and Orlando have recently wed and will be enjoying their honeymoon together, Miranda will not be with us for the launch."



Bloom's representatives were not immediately available for comment.



Bloom's Los Angeles-based publicist later confirmed the couple were married, but said no statement was being issued.
