Penelope cruises down aisle in secret Bahamas wedding

It's a match made in Oscar heaven: Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have gotten married.

Cruz's representative Amanda Silverman confirmed the couple were married at the beginning of July at a friend's house in the Bahamas.

She said in an email that the ceremony for the 36-year-old Cruz and the 41-year-old Bardem was a small one, attended only by family members. Cruz's wedding dress was designed by a longtime friend, fashion designer John Galliano.

Cruz and Bardem are from Spain. They appeared together in the 2008 Woody Allen romantic comedy Vicky Cristina Barcelona, for which Cruz won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.

Bardem won a supporting-actor Oscar for the 2007 crime thriller No Country For Old Men.
