Actor Steve Martin married girlfriend Anne Stringfield in a ceremony at his Los Angeles home, his publicist said.

Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey, a friend of Martin’s, presided over the ceremony, Alan Nierob said.

Lorne Michaels, creator of the US comedy show Saturday Night Live, was Martin’s best man, he said.

Most of the roughly 75 guests – including actors Tom Hanks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy and Carl Reiner – were not told that he and Stringfield would wed when they were invited to his home for a “party” last night, Nierob said.

The ensuing nuptials were a surprise to them.

Martin, 61, was previously married to actress Victoria Tennant, whom he divorced in 1994 after about eight years together.

It was the first marriage for Stringfield, 35, a writer and former staffer for The New Yorker magazine.

The two had dated for about three years.

Martin delivered his vows sporting an Inspector Clouseau moustache he has grown for for his appearance in the forthcoming sequel to 2006’s Pink Panther remake.

His other movies include Planes, Trains & Automobiles, LA Story, Parenthood and Father of the Bride.

His novel Shopgirl was made into a film in 2005 starring himself and Claire Danes.
