The wedding comes two years after Sunetra - who has also starred in Ackley Bridge and Broadchurch - revealed she would not marry "just to prove to other people" that the couple are happy. "Scott and I were friends all through college and met again by chance after we were both divorced," she said in 2016 via Belfast Telegraph. "It was like a thunderbolt for us both at that reunion and we had such a connection, we knew we'd be together forever."
She added: "I feel married, but, although I have a yearning to call Scott my husband, I don't want a wedding just to prove to other people how happy we are. Also, part of me worries it might jinx or ruin things in some way and make us take our relationship for granted." Sunetra was previously married to Nick Corfield for ten years; the former couple share a 17-year-old son together caleld Noah.
