Kevin Costner has tied the knot with his pretty fiancée in a lavish Wild West-themed ceremony. The Oscar-winning star walked down the aisle with Christine Baumgartner at his ranch in Colorado on Saturday.

More than 500 guests were there to see the actor when he arrived in a horse-drawn wagon. And his 30-year-old bride, who wore a strapless white gown, made an equally memorable entrance in a green Chevy pick-up truck.

Once the pair had made their vows, the groom's favourite song, Brown Sugar by the Rolling Stones, blared from the speakers. The Waterworld star then showed off his boating skills, by taking his new bride for a romantic ride in a canoe.

Kevin and Christine, who announced their engagement last summer, are planning to honeymoon in Scotland. But they had quite a bit of entertaining to do before setting off, with the wedding celebrations scheduled to last four days. Among the big names who came along to offer their congratulations were Bruce Willis, Tim Allen and director Oliver Stone.

Saturday's ceremony was Kevin's second trip down the aisle: he was previously married to Cindy Silva. They decided to go their separate ways in 1994, in a high-profile divorce which cost the 49-year-old an estimated £60 million.
