Actor James Van Der Beek has married his pregnant fiancée at a Kabbalah ceremony in Israel.

The star, who shot to fame as a Steven Spielberg-worshipping teenager on the 1990s series Dawson’s Creek, was married by "Rabbi" Yehuda Berg in Tel Aviv.

Mr Berg also officiated over the nuptials of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher in 2005.

The bride, model Kimberly Brook, wore a black dress while Mr Van Der Beek, 33, chose a white Armani tuxedo. The pair, who met in Israel last year, are expecting their first child in the autumn.

Friends were flown to the event, which took place near Dizengoff Square, on a private plane.

A statement said the couple had "a small spiritual ceremony surrounded by a few close friends and teachers".

After the wedding the actor, who also starred in the film The Rules of Attraction, wrote on Twitter: “The woman I love did me the honour of becoming my wife today.

“I look forward to earning her for the rest of my life.”
