Matthew McConaughey married his long term love Camila Alves yesterday.

Matthew McConaughey married his long term love Camila Alves yesterday.

The 'Magic Mike' actor and Camila - with whom he has three-year-old son Levi and two-year-old daughter Vida – tied the knot in a special evening ceremony at their home in Austin, Texas, surrounded by just a few dozen close friends and family

According to RadarOnline the estate was turned into a makeshift campground scattered with tents for guests to sleep in.

The couple got engaged on Christmas Day but Matthew, 42, has previously said he had felt married to Camila, 30, for a long time.

He explained: "We have homes together, we have family together, we have kids, we've built a life together. So we've been living a married life this whole time.”

Along with keeping the celebrations to just close friends and family, those working at the event had to sign a nondisclosure contract.

Camila was due to be honoured at the Step Up Women's Network event in Beverly Hills on Friday but instead sent a video message so she could remain close to the wedding plans.
