Congratulations are in order for Aly Michalka! The former Disney star has married her film producer fiancé Stephen Ringer in a romantic ceremony in Italy.

The couple, who got engaged almost a year ago, flew to the charming village of Portofino to hold their celebrations at the Belmond Hotel Splendido.

Aly looked gorgeous in a lavender wedding dress, defying tradition and adding a splash of colour to her bridal look. She matched the beaded, embellished gown with a dainty headband and completed her outfit with a cascading veil.

The bride and groom had asked friends and family to share their pictures and videos online, using the hashtag "Put a ringer on it" as a play on Stephen's name.

In one short clip Aly, 26, was seen blowing a kiss to her friend before she walked down the petal-strewn aisle to meet her future husband. The actress had one flower girl who matched her in a lavender dress, while her best friend Raymond Braun acted as a "proud bridesmaid".

After the ceremony the newlyweds had a photoshoot overlooking the port, before dining alfresco and cutting their cake by the hotel swimming pool.

Aly and Stephen, 30, met in 2012 on the set of Sequoia, the film in which the pretty brunette played the lead role and Stephen was in charge of cinematography. The couple got engaged in Big Sur, California in July of last year.

At the time Aly announced the happy news with an Instagram photo of her vintage-inspired, square cut diamond ring. "So this happened.....7/8," she captioned it, with the date of her engagement.
