LOS ANGELES (AFP) - Actress Natalie Portman has married French dancer Benjamin Millepied, her partner of two years and the father of her 14-month-old son, People magazine reported on Monday.

The traditional Jewish wedding was held on Saturday evening in the Big Sur coastal resort, some 390km north-west of Los Angeles, according to the magazine.

Photos leaked on microblogging site Twitter showed a grinning Portman in a tea-length, A-line dress with a sheer overlay that covered her arms and shoulders, and a long veil, in keeping with Jewish custom.

The dress was designed by Rodarte, a label run by two of Portman's longtime friends, and the company behind her purple Grecian-style Oscars gown in 2010. Millepied wore a blue tuxedo, People reported.
