Celebrity couple Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck tied the knot Saturday — for the second time in just over a month — in a lavish ceremony at the Good Will Hunting star’s estate in Georgia, US media reported.

The A-list lovebirds already wed in Las Vegas in mid-July, but made it official again, this time in front of friends and family at Affleck’s 87-acre waterfront compound in the southeastern US state of Georgia.

Among the Hollywood stars in attendance at the three-day affair were longtime Affleck pal Matt Damon and director Kevin Smith, People magazine reported.

Guests wore all-white while Lopez donned a Ralph Lauren dress made in Italy, according to Fox News.

Images posted by celebrity gossip site TMZ ahead of the wedding showed dinner seating being arranged on what appeared to be a large, covered dock, with a substantial barge for pyrotechnics floating nearby.

The pair — he is 50 and she is 53 — first met on the set of the widely panned movie Gigli in 2002.

They became a media sensation when they dated but postponed their planned 2003 nuptials. In early 2004 they announced that their relationship was over.

“Bennifer” — the couple’s public nickname from their first highly publicised relationship — set the internet alight last year when photos of them together again began circulating.

Lopez and Affleck announced their engagement in April. The ‘Jenny from the Block’ singer posted a video of herself appearing emotional and admiring a green ring in her newsletter, On The JLo. US media reported that the ring was an emerald-cut pale green diamond.

The couple also secretly tied the knot in Las Vegas at a chapel, 20 years after they first got together. The news was also announced via the singer’s newsletter later through her beauty brand and close friends.
