Hollywood legend Robert Redford walked down the aisle with German artist Sibylle Szaggars in a ceremony in Hamburg at the weekend. It was his second marriage.

A German church confirmed its pastor presided over the wedding between the 72-year-old actor and 51-year-old Sibylle, who have been in a relationship since 1996.

Local news reports say the bride – an abstract painter whose work has been exhibited internationally - wore a champagne-hued gown, and the groom a white suit. Around 30 friends and family members attended the ceremony.

Robert and Sibylle, who have lived together at his 5,500-acre eco-friendly ranch in Utah for over ten years - announced their engagement in May last year.

The Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid actor's first marriage was to Lola Van Wagenen. They divorced in 1985. The pair  have a son Jamie, 46, and two daughters, Shauna, 48, and Amy, 38. They lost son Scott to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in 1959.
