Hollywood actors Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have tied the knot at a friend's house in the Bahamas, Cruz's spokeswoman has confirmed.

Amanda Silverman told news agency The Associated Press, that Cruz, 36, wore a John Galliano dress at the ceremony, which only family members attended.

The couple, both from Spain, appeared together in Woody Allen's film Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2008.

Cruz won a supporting actress Oscar for her role in the romantic comedy.

Bardem, 41, was named best supporting actor at the 2007 Academy Awards for his role in the crime thriller No Country for Old Men.

The couple first acted together in Spanish comedy Jamon Jamon.

The movie, which won a Silver Lion award at the 1992 Venice Film Festival, also marked Cruz's debut in a feature film.
