Isla and Sacha married at last!

The actress ties the knot with Borat’s creator, writes Katherine Chatfield.

Isla Fisher has married her long-term fiancé, comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, in a romantic sunset ceremony in Paris, Woman’s Day can reveal.

The notoriously private couple invited just a few close relatives to witness them become husband and wife in a traditional Jewish ceremony last Monday.

“We did it – we’re married!” bubbled an ecstatic Isla, 34, in an email to friends around the world the following day. “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!”

The Australian actress and Sacha, 38, became engaged in 2004, but despite having a daughter, Olive, now two years old, they postponed their wedding several times. This led to speculation they were reluctant to make their relationship official.

However, friends of the couple say they were simply waiting for the right time to get hitched.

“They were never bothered by the constant public pressure to marry and all along were just considering the venue – Australia or the US,” a friend says. “Paris was the late starter but was the best option at short notice for their families, and it won them over with romance.”

In spite of Sacha’s outrageous alter ego Borat, the UK comedian is said to be very shy in real life. It’s why the pair opted for an intimate celebration instead of a lavish affair in Hollywood with celebrity pals such as Jennifer Aniston and Naomi Watts.

Friends claim the newlyweds’ differences are what makes them a successful couple.
