    After announcing their engagement last year, it looks like Gwyneth Paltrow and her fiancé Brad Falchuck have tied the knot, with reports emerging that the couple wed in a secret ceremony in LA.

    Following her A-list hen party in Mexico this month, the couple hired the Los Angeles Theatre for the night this weekend and held a black tie party – supposedly an engagement bash before their Hamptons wedding later this year.

    However, as guests entered the Los Angeles Theatre, reports emerged that the ‘engagement party’ was actually a secret wedding – especially after Gwyn’s celeb mum Blythe Danner was spotted entering the venue with a Monique Lhuillier bridal dress bag.

    But it wasn’t the venue or Gwyneth’s stunning dress that had everyone talking – it was an oxblood one-shoulder Giambattista Valli gown by the way – instead it was the star-studded guest list.

    Happy Valentine’s Day to all especially @bradfalchuk ❤️

    Gwyneth and Brad invited 400 of their closest friends to the engagement-turned-secret-wedding bash, and in terms of A-list attendees, it looks like they’ve even given Prince Harry and Meghan Markle a run for their money.

    Guests included Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore, Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler and Chelsea Handler. Even US filmmaker Steven Spielberg and his wife made an appearance.

    One person who was notably absent from the festivities was Chris Martin – ex-husband to Gwyneth and co-parent to their two children – Apple and Moses – but given the nature of the event, it makes sense.

    Congratulations to Gwyneth and Brad!
