Bond girl Gemma Arterton has tied the knot with her Italian fiance, Stefano Catelli, in a private ceremony tucked away in a sun-soaked Spanish village.
The 24-year-old who shot to global fame playing the seductive agent Strawberry Fields opposite Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace has enjoyed a low-profile romance with Catelli and the wedding was free of any celebrity trappings, reported Daily Mail online.
The British actress wore a strapless, flowing cream gown, with a long veil pinned into her auburn hair and carried a bouquet of trailing white roses for her wedding yesterday.
Arterton gently stroked her new husband's cheek as they made their vows before sharing an intimate embrace.
They were then driven away in a vintage open top car that had been bedecked with cream ribbons for the occasion.
The newlyweds, who have been engaged for a year, chose to marry with only a small crowd of friends and family in attendance in the picturesque village of Zuheros in Andalucia.
Catelli, an Italian sales manager who works for a British fashion company, proposed at the Download music festival last summer.
Arterton, who most recently appeared in the blockbuster Prince of Persia alongside Hollywood heartthrob Jake Gyllenhal, has been turning down work so she can enjoy a break with her new husband for a few months.
It has been a whirlwind romance for Catelli and Arterton, who was previously linked to Spanish stuntman Eduardo Munoz, who taught her to ride horses for Prince of Persia.
