The 36-year-old actress wore a John Galliano dress for the ceremony. A representative for the couple has confirmed the marriage. Their romance began on the sets of

in 2007, but the couple tried to keep their relationship out of the spotlight, denying repeated rumours of their engagement.

Bardem, 41, made a public declaration of his love for the brunette beauty earlier this year as he collected his Best Actor award at the Cannes Film Festival. After accepting the trophy, he told the audience, “I share this joy with my friend, my companion, my love: Penelope, I owe you a lot and I love you so much.”

Cruz and Bardem have been friends for nearly 20 years, after working together on the Spanish film

, when the actress was just 19. Bardem recently finished filming

while Cruz is working on

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
