Guests were not even told the location Arterton, 24, and Stefano Catelli, 37, planned to marry when they answered their invitations, but in the hills of southern Spain the elaborate planning paid off. Clutching a bouquet of white roses, the English beauty wore a cream gown and a veil in her auburn hair as she wed in Zuheros in Andalucia June 5, PEOPLE has confirmed.
Witnesses told the Daily Mail that the actress stroked her new husband's cheek "as they made their vows." And pictures in the British newspaper show the couple embracing after they said their 'I dos' and leaving the open-air ceremony in a vintage convertible.
Catelli, a sales manager for a fashion company, proposed last summer at a music festival in England.
Arterton's rep would not comment on the wedding, but last month, Arterton described her planned wedding dress to InStyle, saying, "There's this beautiful scene in [Franco] Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet where she runs out of the bedroom after a night with Romeo, and she's wrapped up in a sheet. She looks so gorgeous. My wedding gown is kind of like that."
