It’s been the subject of speculation for months, but it seems as though actors Jamie Bell and Evan Rachel Wood are indeed married.
Congratulations are in order for the couple, who quietly wed Tuesday in California, reports MSN. Bell and Wood’s nuptials were confirmed by the latter’s rep, who said in a statement:
“Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell were married on October 30 in California. The bride wore a custom dress by Carolina Herrera. It was a small ceremony with close family and friends.”
The intimate ceremony followed early speculation this week that the two had married, reports The San Francisco Gate. Wood met the Billy Elliot star back in 2005 when they filmed a music video for Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends.”
An impending wedding for Bell and Wood has been rumored since January of this year after the British actor had reportedly proposed to her. They have both been photographed wearing wedding bands throughout the year despite the fact that they only seemed to marry earlier this week.
Wood herself seemed to confirm her marriage to Bell via Twitter on Wednesday, writing:
Words cannot describe the happiness i am feeling. Overwhelming.

Actor and friend Max Minghella also confirmed the ceremony:
Yesterday I got to see my best friend exchange vows with the love of his life. Still coming down from high… #TrueRomance

The 25-year-old actress and 26-year-old Bell have had a long road to their wedding day. Their initial romance in 2005 fizzled after a year, after which Wood entered a romance with shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, which also culminated in engagement and eventual breakup in 2010.
Wood and Bell then reconnected in 2011.
During their initial romance, the couple got tattoos together, celebrating their love. Wood got a “J” tattooed on her ankle, while Bell had an “E” inked on his arm. While it’s pretty much never a good idea to get a tattoo with your significant other, Wood and Bell got a freebie on this one.
Congratulations from IQ to Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell on their wedding!
