She has seduced James Bond and romanced the Prince Of Persia.

But actress Gemma Arterton married her real-life hero, fiance Stefano Catelli, in a private ceremony tucked away in a sun-soaked Spanish village.

The 24-year-old former Bond girl looked stunning as she arrived for the hill-top wedding yesterday in a strapless, flowing cream gown, with a long veil pinned into her auburn hair and carrying a bouquet of trailing white roses.

Miss Arterton gently stroked her new husband’s cheek as they made their vows before the newlyweds shared 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.

Mr Catelli, an Italian sales manager who works for a British fashion company, proposed at the Download music festival last summer.

And Miss 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.

Speaking about their love, Miss Arterton who starred in Bond film Quantum of Solace, said: ‘It was absolutely instant.

‘I remember going home the night after I met him and writing in my diary that I’d met the man I’m going to marry.

‘I gave that diary entry to him for his birthday two weeks later. But it didn’t freak him out, because he was thinking the same thing.

‘I just really want to spend the rest of my life with him. He’s an amazing man.’

It has been a whirlwind romance for Mr Catelli and Miss Arterton, who was previously linked to Spanish stuntman Eduardo Munoz, who taught her to ride horses for Prince of Persia.

Last month, she even detailed her search for the perfect wedding gown, saying: ‘My fiancé loves me most when I wake up in the morning wrapped up in the bedsheets.

‘My wedding gown is kind of like that.’

The low-key wedding amid the white-washed walls and under the Mediterranean sky was still a far cry for Miss Arterton, a down-to-earth girl from a working-class, single-parent family in Gravesend, Kent.

She admitted that was astonished to find herself walking down the aisle, saying: ‘It takes you by surprise.

‘I always thought I was going to end up an old spinster, with my cats and fur coats.’

Miss Arterton also revealed how her husband soothed her and told her she was beautiful after she was left hurt over criticism she had put on weight. She said: ‘I went to a designer the other day — who will remain nameless — and he said to me: ‘I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.’

Her reply was to tell the designer: ‘I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.’

A spokesman for Miss Arterton yesterday refused to comment on the wedding.
