Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Italy.

The couple confirmed the news on Friday in a statement, following days of mounting speculation about their nuptials.

Their statement to People.com read: "It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends."

Security was tight, and guests were, according to E!, required to sign a nondisclosure agreement to protect the privacy of the nuptials.

The guest list included Jimmy Fallon, Timbaland, Andy Samberg and Beverly Mitchell.

The couple began dating in 2007 and Timberlake proposed to Biel in December, months after reuniting following a brief, three-month split.
