Good Charlotte singer Benji Madden has married Hollywood actress Cameron Diaz in an intimate ceremony at the couple's home in Los Angeles. The pair told People Magazine "We couldn't be happier to begin our new journey together surrounded by our closest family and friends."
42 year old Diaz has been quite outspoken in the past on the subject of marriage. Only last May she told "A lot of people chase after it because they’ve been told ‘This equals happiness’. They chase it, they get it and they find out, ‘Why did I think this was going to make me happy? I’m miserable!'."
She also has been known to question whether human beings can ever truly be monogamous making the statement "I don’t know if anyone is really naturally monogamous. We all have the same instincts as animals. But we live in a society where it’s been ingrained in us to do these things." Diaz later went back on that statement saying she believed monogamy "is a very important part of relationships working".
Diaz and 35 year old Madden had been dating for about 8 months when they announced their engagement very recently in November. The ceremony was held in their home with the reception being hosted in a tent in their garden afterwards.
Guests at the wedding included Drew Barrymore, who joined Diaz's sister as a bridesmaid, Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow,Samantha Ronson and Nicole Ritchie who is married to Madden's twin brother Joel. Ritchie also acted as bridesmaid while her son Sparrow was the Ring Bearer to add even more intimacy to the occasion.
