Elijah Wood attends Hobbit wedding

Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan were guests at fellow hobbit Billy Boyd's wedding

Elijah Wood and Dominic Monaghan celebrated the wedding of Lord Of The Rings co-star Billy Boyd in Glasgow this week.

The 42-year-old Scottish actor, who played Pippin in Peter Jackson's trilogy married long-term partner Ali McKinnon at Oran Mor on December 29, and his Hollywood pals were among the 30 guests at the intimate ceremony.

Elijah, Dominic and Billy all became good friends playing hobbits in the hit movies, which were filmed on location in New Zealand and even got matching tattoos written in High Elvish, a language from JRR Tolkien's books, to mark their time working together.

Billy met his wife, a ballet dancer and yoga teacher, back in 2002 when the couple worked on a pantomine together. They have a four-year-old son named Jack who wore a suit to match Billy's to the wedding.

Billy will not be reprising his role in Lord Of The Rings prequel The Hobbit, but will soon be reunited with co-star Sean Astin, in The Witches Of Oz, about a grown-up Dorothy who's become a children's author.
