She is considered to be Hollywood's hottest property at the moment, but Blake Lively could be surrendering it all for domestic bliss.

It has been reported that the Gossip Girl actress, just 25, is now a married lady after saying 'I do' to partner Ryan Reynolds.

The couple have only been dating for a year, a rather long stretch by Tinseltown's consideration.

Blake is believed to have walked down the aisle at a private ceremony this evening at Boone Hall Plantation in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston, reports People.

The US publication states that the reception
took place in a white tent, with good friend and chart-topper Florence
Welch performing three songs before a DJ took over to spin decks at the
party.

It was also confirmed that a cake had been driven down from Virginia for the event.

Despite high-profile romances with Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley – whom she dated for three years – and a brief flirtation with Leonardo DiCaprio, it is the first time Blake has been married.

Meanwhile, 35-year-old Ryan has already tried his hand at domestic bliss with Scarlett Johansson.

The Proposal heartthrob tied the knot to The Prestige beauty in September 2008, before separating just two years later when he filed for divorce in December 2010.

In July, Blake and Ryan sparked speculation that they had already married after a blundering law enforcer made an error while filling paperwork on a police report.

According to TMZ, the document was made after an officer attended their posh $2m New York home on July 8, following a complaint by Ryan that he was being followed by a photographer.

The report stated: 'Upon arrival, I
spoke to Ryan Reynolds and his wife,' with the name of the individual in
question blanked out.

In
addition, it read: 'They explained that this (blank) coloured vehicle
was observed outside their residence, and proceeded to follow their
vehicle in an erratic manner.

'They believed that this individual was a photographer attempting to obtain pictures of them.

'Mr. Reynolds and his wife were advised to contact police should any persons enter their property.'

The couple are believed to have grown
close while shooting box office bomb Green Lantern together in the
spring of 2010, in which Blake starred as his love interest.

Before the big day, Blake hinted on her Twitter page that her romance was 'the dream of a lifetime'.

The Teen Choice Award-winner wrote:
'You are living in a dream of your own creation.

'Let it be the dream of a
lifetime, for that is exactly what it is.'

She later added: 'Just because you're not the prettiest girl around doesn't mean you're not worth it, doesn't mean you're not beautiful. #BECAUSEYOUARE.'

While Blake was initially the lesser known star, largely due to being 10 years Ryan's junior and only just carving out a career for herself, her notoriety has soared over the last year.

After starring in The Town in 2010, alongside Ben Affleck, it seems film bosses started taking notice of the pretty blonde and realised she wasn't just a one-trick pony destined for teenage TV dramas.

She was soon snapped up by the
infamous Oliver Stone, for gritty thriller Savages, promoting it
relentlessly this summer with appearances on all the major television
sofas.

Ryan's popularity
has wavered over the years, with his performance high back in 2009's The
Proposal opposite Sandra Bullock, which became the highest grossing
romantic comedy of that year.

He
has since guest-starred in Ted with Mila Kunis and Mark Wahlberg, as
well as loaning his vocals to animated film Turbo, and taking centre
stage in 2013 release R.I.P.D.

MailOnline is currently awaiting comment from both Blake and Ryan's representatives.
