It was the most intimate celebrity wedding of the year, with the happy couple joined only by the bride's two sons.
And shortly after Darius Campbell and Natasha Henstridge exchanged vows at a ranch in Santa Barbara, California, they shared their happiness exclusively with HELLO! magazine.
The Canadian-born actress told HELLO!: "Apart from the boys, we didn’t tell anyone what we were planning - it was a very hard secret to keep!"

Thirty-six-year-old Natasha, who recently starred in US TV series Eli Stone, added: "I was like that young girl who dreams about her wedding day and I really felt it had all come true."
For Darius, 30, who suffered a near-fatal car crash last summer the day was just as special . He described the wedding as "the best day of my life".
This week's issue, number 1166, contains all the intimate photos and details of how the couple's seven-year courtship culminated in a low-key Valentine's Day wedding organised in just seven days.
