Bijou Phillips, Danny Masterson marry in Ireland, not Iceland

Bijou Phillips and Danny Masterson are married

This post has been corrected, as detailed below.

Actors Bijou Phillips and Danny Masterson have finally tied the knot, after an eight-year courtship.

In the lush Irish countryside, the couple wed before friends and family in a castle with the landscape of Tipperary behind them, says People.

Masterson and Phillips got engaged in 2009, but as we told you last year, the couple hit a roadblock: Volcano Eyjafjallajokull. You heard us: That massive volcanic ash cloud that grounded flights and kept journalists tongue-tied also put the kibosh on the couple's planned nuptials in Iceland.

"I was going to get married in Iceland, but then it blew up. That volcano! We have to kind of postpone everything ... " Phillips told us at the time."It's hard for two actors to set a date, because a movie will come up or something, but it's harder not to date another actor. He totally gets it; he's like, 'I'll see you in a few months.' "

Eighteen months later and they're finally man and wife.

Masterson, of "That '70s Show" fame, had brother Chris as his best man. The bride wore a custom Zac Posen gown while her beloved went for a suit designed by Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes, part of a capsule collection for Masterson's Los Feliz boutique Confederacy.

Additional guests included actors Chris Mena and Ben Foster.

[For the record, 6 p.m. Oct. 20: This post originally gave designer Albert Hammond Jr.'s first name incorrectly as Alfred. Thanks to those who flagged it in comments.]
