It was a first union for the British actress, while Giovanni was previously married to Mariah O'Brien, with whom he has a 17-year-old daughter named Lucia.

After being discovered working in a Lancashire chip shop, Agyness was for a number of years one of the world's most sought after models. She became a muse for Henry Holland and featured on magazine covers around the world.

Then, around the time of her marriage she swapped the catwalk for acting. The 31-year-old has just finished filming the period drama Sunset Song in which she plays Chris Guthrie, the daughter of a Scottish farmer who comes of age in the early 1900s.

Her first notable role was as a stripper in Pusher. Speaking about acting she said: "When I did Pusher it was like: this is what I'm supposed to be doing,I just loved it so much."

One of the disadvantages of her new career choice was being away for long periods of time. For her last film Electricity, she spent several months in New Zealand.

Giovanni is best known for starring in Saving Private Ryan. He has also recently appeared in Selma, A Million Ways to Die in the West and Ted.
