Suranne Jones 'ties the knot in secret'

Suranne Jones has married in a small and intimate ceremony, it's been reported.

The 36-year-old actress became engaged to magazine editor Laurence Akers last year, following a whirlwind six-week relationship. It's now been claimed they have made it official with a small and private ceremony at Islington Town Hall in London.

"Suranne is very private and not the type of person to have her wedding in the magazines or on social media," an insider told British newspaper The Sun

“The nuptials were very hastily arranged with nothing too fancy.

“But it was intimate and romantic, and both the bride and groom were very happy."

Laurence is ten years older than Surrane and works at Nikon Pro Magazine. The pair are understood to have met at a friend's wedding, with the news of her engagement coming now long after the former Coronation Street actress had spoken about finding love.

"I’m still single. You don’t want to be single for ever," she said.

"But also, once you have your own life, your partner has to be someone very special because life is so busy. If that person isn’t right for you, don’t settle for second best."

Prior to that Suranne had been in a three-year relationship with plumber Lorenzo Giove, who she'd been good friends with for ten years before taking things to the next level.

"There is no one else involved, but unfortunately the relationship has just run its course. It just wasn't meant to be. Deciding to end a relationship is never easy but we both felt this was for the best," she said at the time.

Suranne found fame playing Karen McDonald in Coronation Street and has also appeared in shows such as The Crimson Field, A Touch of Cloth and Scott & Bailey.
