Foster and her photographer girlfriend, Alexandra Hedison, tied the knot over the weekend ... Jodie's rep confirms to TMZ. The pair had been dating for about a year.

Foster has never addressed her sexual orientation directly ... her speech at last year's Golden Globes -- where she said she did her "coming out 1,000 years ago" -- was really as close as she ever came. 

Fact is ... it's pretty clear she's never felt a need or obligation to make a public declaration, and by getting married she's merely living her life and not screaming from the rafters.

Just one note ... remember how hard it was following that Golden Globes speech ... let's hope Foster and Hedison didn't write their own vows.
