Tracey Edmonds - Eddie MurphySuperstar Eddie Murphy married his girlfriend, film producer Tracey Edmonds on New Year’s Day in a small ceremony on a private island off Bora Bora. The couple said their vows in front of a small group of friends and family on the beautiful French Polynesian island.

The romantic ceremony began at sunset. The bride wore a Sugia Nazel and Jill Baracci wedding gown and the groom wore a matching cream suit.

Edmonds gave her bridesmaid earrings from XIV Karats in Beverly Hills, while Murphy gave his groomsmen D.Atlantis watches. Murphy’s best man was Johnny Gill from New Edition.

The ceremony took place on the beach under a special gazebo created by event designer Colin Cowie. The gazebo was made out of 6,000 shells.

The couple began dating last year and were engaged in July.

Though Murphy has been in the news in recent months about paternity issues with Spice Girl Melanie Brown, his wedding was picture perfect and without controversy.

Murphy, 46, has five children from his previous marriage to Nicole Mitchell Murphy, and a daughter with Mel B. Edmonds, 40, has two sons from her marriage to Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds. Tracey Edmonds may best be known as the producer of the film and television series “Soul Food.”

Congrats to the newlywed couple!

    It seems like there’s always some celebrity couple that gets married on New Year’s Day. I think they just want to be known for having the first high-profile wedding of the year. I do love winter weddings though, and it would be cool to have your wedding tied in with a holiday. There isn’t a good chance you’ll forget your anniversary at least!
