In one video, she twirls for the camera and the person filming says: “Oooh! Someone's getting married!”

It seems the wedding was an impromptu decision. According to People magazine, the couple flew to the desert city in Nevada and wed at a chapel late on Saturday.

A marriage licence dated Saturday, July 16, was obtained in their name from Clark County, according to details posted by the county clerk's office.

A second video, shot by Affleck and shared by Lopez, was filmed in a small public toilet. After panning the room, he focuses on himself in the mirror and says: “This was my wedding changing area.”

The pair, widely known as “Bennifer”, have married 20 years after they first started dating in 2002. They were engaged but broke up in 2004. In the years after, they both married other partners.

The newsletter was signed “Mrs Jennifer Lynn Affleck,” suggesting that she is changing her name.

In a photo posted to Instagram, Lopez is wearing a silver band on her wedding finger. The image is captioned “Sadie! #iykyk”. Sadie references Funny Girl's Sadie, Sadie lyrics: “I'm Sadie, Sadie, married lady”.
