Neil Young and Daryl Hannah banned smartphones from their wedding.

The couple wanted to tie the knot in complete privacy and so decided to ask people to leave their devices at home so no pictures could leak of the big day.

A wedding planner reportedly advised guests that ''everyone will be asked to leave their phones and cameras at the hotel'' whilst the pair also picked a venue in San Luis Obispo, California - a three-to-four drive from Los Angeles - so that the paparazzi wouldn't be able to attend, the New York Post's Page Six column reports.

Guests - which included Joni Mitchell and Stephen Stills - were given a list of nearby hotels, but were told, ''Please note the hotels do not have information about the event, so please only contact them to book a room (and do not mention anything about this event).''

The 72-year-old singer songwriter is believed to have gotten married to actress and activist Daryl during a small ceremony in California over the weekend.

Guitarist Mark Miller appeared to confirm the news when he took to Facebook to congratulate the couple, writing: ''Congratulations to Daryl Hannah and Neil Young on their wedding today. May they have a long and happy relationship.''

The musician later admitted he hadn't attended the ceremony - which is believed to have taken place on Saturday (25.08.18) in Atascadero - in a second post which read: ''I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page.''

Daryl, 57, and Neil's marriage was also seemingly confirmed on the Buffalo Springfield star's unofficial news blog, where fans discussed the rumours, and the administrator claimed ''several attendees'' had confirmed the news.

They wrote: ''Congrats N & D. No word on first dance song, but it probably wasn't the Bluenotes 'Married Man'.

''Several attendees at [the] reception yesterday in central CA area have confirmed. Described as a 'shindig'. (sic)''
