Justin Timberlake - Jessica Biel And Justin Timberlake Exchanged Handwritten Vows

Actor/singer Justin Timberlake and new bride Jessica Biel wrote their own wedding vows to keep the ceremony light and personal.

The couple was married by Hollywood director Bill Purple on Friday (19Oct12) in Savelletri di Fasano, Italy in front of family and friends including U.S. funnyman Jimmy Fallon, music producer Timbaland, and Biel's former 7th Heaven co-star Beverley Mitchell.

But despite being surrounded by their celebrity pals, the SexyBack singer and the actress kept the nuptials as intimate as possible by exchanging handwritten vows by candlelight.

Timberlake tells People magazine, "(It was) very personal. (They were) filled with our love for each other and what this means for us. I can't let more than 10 minutes go by without some moments of comedy so they were funny and heartwarming."

Biel agreed with her groom, adding, "It was a mixture of laughter and tears during the ceremony. It was a rollercoaster."

The actress wed in a petal-pink Giambattista Valli couture gown while Timberlake sported a Tom Ford tuxedo he helped design.

It also emerged the bride walked down the aisle as her husband-to-be played guitar and performed a song he had penned especially for her.

Timberlake says, "It was an original piece I wrote specifically for the evening and for her... I figured if there was something I was going to be able to offer, it would be to sing her down the aisle. Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad."

After the ceremony, guests sat down at two large banquet tables, decorated with local flowers, for a four-course meal including steak, sea bass, affogato, an Italian ice cream treat, and almond and coconut cake.

The newlyweds then shared their first dance to Donny Hathaway's A Song for You, and guests rocked the night away to tunes spun by The Roots star ?uestlove.

Biel joked, "We were the last ones on the dance floor, which we felt was pretty appropriate."
