Katherine Kelly eloped to Las Vegas to marry Ryan Clark without telling even her own family
Katherine Kelly eloped to Las Vegas to marry without telling anyone.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress ran off with Ryan Clark to the US gambling capital, telling her family she was only going for a holiday, but instead they enjoyed an intimate ceremony on August 20.
She told Hello! magazine: "I love going to other people's weddings but I have never desired a big white wedding for myself and it has never been put on me as a pressure, an expectation.
"The day was everything we hoped it would be - no fuss, low-key, sunshine and just us."
Katherine - who played feisty Becky McDonald on the ITV soap and has also appeared on 'Mr. Selfridge' - preferred the low-key wedding at the Little Church of the West because it meant she got Australian digital analyst manager Ryan all to herself.
She added: "So many people say you have to remember to grab hold of your bride or groom and spend time with them. I think if we had done a traditional wedding we would have been doing it for everyone else but this was about the two of us.
"We wanted to enjoy the day without all the usual planning and pressure. We just wanted to let it roll, so it had an on-the-run feel to it."
While the couple's big day was fun, it was also extremely emotional.
Katherine explained: "We'd been laughing and joking all day and then suddenly everything seemed to stop and we tried to get the words 'I do' out without becoming emotional wrecks. It was awesome. I'll never forget that moment for the rest of my life."
