Former child star Mary Kate Olsen marries her French boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy in a secret ceremony.

Page Six is reporting that the couple exchanged vows at an intimate ceremony in New York City on Friday night.

The reception was reportedly held at a private residence in Manhattan where all 50 guests were served cocktails in a rear garden before dining indoors.

Reportedly the couple - who share a 17-year age difference - told guests not to bring mobile phones but had bowls of cigarettes scattered around for people to smoke all night.

The couple have been engaged since March 2014, when Olivier proposed during a romantic getaway together in Jamaica.

Sarkozy, 46 presented Olsen, 29, with a 4-carat vintage Cartier diamond ring after she accepted what was believed to be his second proposal.

And the former child star - who is known for her fashion sense - revealed earlier this year she was considering designing her own wedding dress.

She told Women's Wear Daily: "'I'm like not even there yet.

"I think it may be a matter of getting five or six or making two or three and being stressed out. That seems kind of far away. We’ll take one step at a time."

It was originally believed that the couple - who live in a $13.5 million apartment in New York - were planning a 2016 wedding in the Hamptons.

Her new husband comes from an impressive family -- he is the half brother of the former President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy.

This is the first marriage for Mary Kate -- Sarkozy was previously married to Charlotte Bernard and  fathers two children, Julien, 13, and Margo, 11, it is understood his children approve of the marriage to Mary Kate.
