The New York Post reports that the newlyweds said "I do" in an intimate ceremony that will be followed by a larger reception.

Pick, 35, who is of Israeli decent, has been celebrating since the weekend, according to her Instagram highlights, where she shared multiple images from her bridal shower.

Pick began her singing career in the early 2000s as a duo with her sister Sharona. They were best known for their single Hello, Hello, which they sang at a qualifying round of a national Eurovision song contest in 2005.

After the sister act broke up the following year, Pick found solo success with songs including More or Less and Love Me.

The couple met eight years ago when Tarantino was in Israel to promote his 2009 film Inglourious Basterds. However, they only started dating in 2016 and became engaged last year.

"THANK YOU FOR ALL THE LOVE," the model wrote at the time on Instagram. "we're so excited and happy to celebrate our engagement here in ISRAEL. Thanks for your kind wishes. We feel truly blessed."

The guest list included Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Harvey Keitel, Diane Kruger, Eli Roth, Maya Rudolph and Kill Bill star Uma Thurman, who accused him of nearly killing her on the set of their hit movie during a stunt gone wrong.

But Thurman clearly meant it earlier this year when she said she had forgiven him.

"We've had our fights over the years," Thurman said. "When you know someone for as long as I've known him, 25 years of creative collaboration, yes, did we have some tragedies take place? Sure. But you can't reduce that type of history and legacy. It would have been reduced to my car accident if I died."

Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is in post-production, but the newlyweds may be keeping busy, as a source revealed to the New York Post last year that Pick was ready to have children.

"Her family is pressuring her because her sister has children and she has to catch up," we're told. "She tells Quentin her clock is ticking."

Tarantino has famously said he will do 10 feature films and then quit directing, which means he has two left.

In 2009, Tarantino explained why he has never married before: "When I'm doing a movie, I'm not doing anything else. It's all about the movie. I don't have a wife. I don't have a kid. Nothing can get in my way."

According to USA Today, Tarantino wore a white shirt beneath a black suit and accessorised with a tie. Pick wore a strapless, white A-line gown with sheen and a veil.

For their wedding reception, Pick ditched her veil and changed into a slip dress with sparkling spaghetti straps. She arrived carrying a bouquet of off-white roses. The newlyweds held hands as they were snapped by photographers.
