The spotlight is usually on him, but Jake Gyllenhaal had to take a back seat as he attended his father’s wedding.

Sister Maggie, who is also a Hollywood star, took a sidestep so their old man was centre of attention on his big day.

The informal ceremony took place on the beach in front of just 30 guests.

Film director Stephen Gyllenhaal tied the knot on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii with film maker and professor Kathleen Man.

Man is a Hawaii native who graduated from the Punahou School, where President Obama went to high school, in 1992.

He split from Naomi Foner nearly three years ago after 32 years. Jake and Maggie’s mother Naomi is also in the showbiz industry.

The American screenwriter even earned herself an Oscar nomination and won a Golden Globe for River Phoenix screenplay Running On Empty.

Stephen and his new bride were both dressed in white, feeling the water between their toes as they walked barefoot on the sand.

The ushers were all dressed casually in loose-fitted khaki trousers and brown shirts – also complete with foliage around their neck.

Donnie Darko star Jake was sporting a shaved head, which he had to buzz cut for his upcoming police drama End of Watch.

While he has never said ‘I do’ himself, Jake has had several high-profile relationships.

In 2002, he dated actress Kirsten Dunst for nearly two years, before joining forces with Rendition co-star Reese Witherspoon in 2007.

Maggie, who married actor Peter Sarsgaard in a small Italian wedding two years ago, wore a long floral dress with a garland draped around her.

She looked happy and at ease, having made minimal effort by simply scraping her hair back into a bun.
