New Orleans - The game is love for tennis star Serena Williams and her new husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

The couple got married at the Contemporary Arts Centre in New Orleans, according to a story and photos posted on Vogue's website on Friday night.

Vogue said the celebrity guests at Thursday's ceremony included Beyonce and Kim Kardashian West.

The 36-year-old Williams has won 23 Grand Slam singles titles, a record for the professional era.

She and Ohanian were engaged in December 2016.

Williams gave birth to a girl named Alexis Olympia Ohanian jnr on September 1, 2017.

Williams hasn't competed since winning the Australian Open last January - while pregnant.

She has said she intends to return to the WTA Tour for that same event next January.
