Out actor Bryan Batt married his partner of 25 years, Tom Cianfichi, last month in a ceremony held in New Orleans.

Batt is best known for playing art director Salvatore Romano on the AMC hit series Mad Men. Other notable roles include Darius in the film Jeffrey and Tino in Kiss Me, Guido.

Batt told US Weekly that they were legally wed in New York City and held a ceremony and reception in his hometown, where he keeps a home.

“After 25 years together we tied the knot – first legally in New York City, and then in a ceremony and reception under the canopy of oaks in a beautiful Garden District courtyard in New Orleans,” he said.

“I've had some good ones, but this was the best night of my life!” said Batt of the wedding, which included a jazz quartet playing in the background as the couple exchanged vows.

In a tweet he added: “It was beautiful, profound, and more magical than I ever dreamed. I highly recommend it!”

Celebrity guests included Patricia Clarkson, Harriet Harris, Christian Le Blanc and Christina Hendricks.
