Jessica Chastain weds

Anna Hathaway and Emily Blunt were among the celebrities who attended the Italian nuptials.

Actress Jessica Chastain has tied the knot.

The Interstellar star wed Italian fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo in his home country on Saturday (10Jun17) after a days-long lead-up to the nuptials.

According to People, guests began arriving in Treviso, Italy, which is located about an hour north of Venice, on Wednesday (07Jun17) ahead of the weekend ceremony. Family and friends went sightseeing together to bond before partying it up at a pre-wedding dinner on Friday (09Jun17).

The newlyweds exchanged their vows on Saturday at her husband's magnificent Passi de Preposulo family estate Villa Tiepolo Passi in front of their loved ones. Celebrities such as fellow actresses Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt, fashion writer Derek Blasberg and Jessica's Zero Dark Thirty co-star Edgar Ramirez were in attendance at the weekend wedding.

Guests enjoyed the gorgeous grounds at the historic palatial manor, which has been part of Gian's noble Passi de Preposulo clan since the 1800s.

The Help star began dating fashion professional Gian in 2012 before marrying him on Saturday and she has been reluctant to speak about their relationship, preferring to keep details of their love life private.

Although Chastain told U.S. news outlet Extra in 2013 she was "very, very happy" with her partner Gian, the star confessed in 2015 she had no idea if marriage was on the table.

"I'm not quite sure of what I want in my life, and who knows if marriage is a part of it," she told People at the time. "So to me, marriage is not an important thing."
