Sofia Coppola ties the knot

Sofia Coppola has married Thomas Mars.

The 'Lost in Translation' director was wearing a custom-made lavender bridal gown as she tied the knot with the musician in Italy yesterday on her dad Francis Ford Coppola's estate in Bernalda in front of around 80 guests, including Johnny Depp and George Lucas.

Village mayor Leonardo Chiruzzi, who performed the ceremony, explained the occasion "went well".

He said: "Everything went well. It was simple, calm, in the garden. If they wanted to do a Hollywood wedding, they wouldn't have done it here. They chose to do it here because it's here - it's here that is beautiful."

'Godfather' director Francis was previously said to be renovating his property for the nuptials, with the ceremony set to mark the end of his rebuilding.

His great-nephew Gaetano Russo explained: "The ceremony will mark the end of renovations at the palace, which will soon be inaugurated as a resort, open to the public."

Sophia - who has two children, Roma, four, and 15-month-old Cosima with Thomas - used to be married to 'Being John Malkovich' helmer Spike Jonze between 1999 and 2003.
