    Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have finally tied the knot after a six-year engagement.

    The couple married under the chuppah in a private ceremony in Paris, with close family in attendance.

    The Borat star Mr Baron Cohen and his Australian actress fiancée Ms Fisher, had planned to marry in August 2006 but the wedding was postponed so that Ms Fisher could complete her conversion.

    Ms Fisher wrote in an email to friends this weekend: “We did it – we’re married! It was the absolute best day of my life and in so many beautiful moments I missed you all so much.

    "I thought of you as everything was happening, but Sacha and I wanted no fuss – just us!”

    Mr Baron Cohen’s Orthodox family are said to be content with Ms Fisher’s conversion, and she has taken the Hebrew name Ayala.

    In an interview this time last year, Ms Fisher said: “I love Judaism, the fact that there’s such a huge emphasis on family and, to me, family’s everything.

    “We’re quite observant, we keep Shabbat and do Friday night dinner and celebrate the holidays. I really enjoy being part of that Jewish community. I have visited Israel recently and I love it there.

    “I speak a bit of Hebrew, and they recognise me from Home And Away so it’s great.”

    Rumours that the couple were about to marry were rife when the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter Olive, sent an email to 80 guests telling them to keep February 26 free.

    But Mr Baron Cohen’s spokesman said the pair had just thrown a fancy dress Purim party that day.
