Lily Collins has tied the knot to her writer and director fiancé Charlie McDowell over Labour Day weekend in a secret ceremony in Colorado .

The Emily in Paris star shared photographs from the couple’s wedding on her Instagram account, showing off her embroidered gown and lace veil by Ralph Lauren .

The dress featured a high neck, long sleeves and a lace train, paired with a hooded, caped veil. Collins, 32, wore her hair in a simple, sleek bun with a delicate braid detail.

She wrote in the caption: “I’ve never wanted to be someone’s someone more than I do yours, and now I get to be your wife.

“On September 4th, 2021 we officially became each other’s forever. I love you beyond @charliemcdowell.”

In another post, which showed the couple kissing with a waterfall in the background, she wrote: “What started as a fairytale, is now my forever reality. I’ll never be able to properly describe how otherworldly this past weekend was, but magical is a pretty good place to start.”

McDowell, 38, shared one of the photographs on his own Instagram account and said in the caption: “I married the most generous, thoughtful and beautiful person I’ve ever known. I love you @lilyjcollins.”

A number of famous friends left messages of congratulations and celebration in the comments underneath Collins’ post, including Sarah Hyland, Reese Witherspoon, Vanessa Hudgens and Tan France.

Witherspoon said: “Oh my heart!! Love ya’ll”, while Matt Bomer left a series of heart-eyes emojis and wrote: “Congratulations!!! So happy for you both!”

The couple became engaged a year ago, with Collins announcing the engagement on Instagram. She posted a series of photographs from the proposal and her ring, and wrote: “I’ve been waiting my lifetime for you and I can’t wait to spend our lifetime together.”

The engagement ring featured a rose-cut diamond with a bezel setting and a thin gold band, designed by American jeweller Irene Neuwirth. Neuwirth thanked McDowell at the time for trusting her to design the “one-of-a-kind” diamond and described Collins as the “perfect muse”.
