Celebrity couple Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are celebrating a decade of marriage and have published a touching video to mark the occasion.

The pair tied the knot in 2008 after first getting together in 2004 and are now giving fans an intimate look at the ceremony with the video, which has been shared on the official YouTube channel of Ellen's TV show.

Comments on the video show fans are getting emotional watching the private footage, with user PS stating simply: "I'm crying".

Ellen and Portia were wed after the California Supreme Court struck down two state laws that had effectively banned same-sex marriages in 2008.

Just a day after the court ruling, Ellen announced her wedding plans on TV.

"Yesterday, if you haven't heard, the California Supreme Court overturned a ban on gay marriage. So I would like to say right now for the first time, I am announcing I am getting married," she told her studio audience, which included a teary de Rossi.

"I'm so excited, and if I'm this emotional now I can't imagine how that's going to be. But it's something that we've wanted to do, and we wanted it to be legal, and we're very, very excited."

The wedding anniversary comes just months after Portia moved Ellen to tears on TV with a special 60th birthday gift.
