Shetland’s Ashley Jensen and Vera star ‘secretly tie the knot in fun ceremony’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Shetland star Ashley Jensen is said to have married Vera star Kenny Doughty in what has been described as a “super fun and emotional” ceremony.
The 54-year-old married the fellow actress in front of a close-knit group of family and friends at Priston Mill near Bath, MailOnline reports.
Friends told the publication that the actress “hardly stopped smiling all day” and was seen wearing a stunning white dress with floral embroidery and coral platform sandals.
Kenny, 48, was dressed in a powder blue suit and matching suede loafers for the ceremony which took place on August 9.
A friend told the publication: “The day looked really beautiful. Ashley was so happy and so happy.
“She was smiling and laughing, it was just idyllic… There seemed to be so much love in that room.”
The couple were joined by Ashley’s son Francis, 14, from a previous marriage and her late husband Terence Beesley, who wore a floral tie with Kenny’s matching head.
Ashley sparked speculation she was caught after she was seen wearing a ring and trying to hide her hand while appearing on The Graham Norton Show.
The pair have been photographed together at many events and were seen holding hands in Bath in 2021.
Six years have passed since Ashley was left devastated after losing her husband Terence to suicide.
The pair were together for 18 years after meeting for the first time in 1999.
They married in 2007 in California before deciding to move back to the UK to set up home.
Ashley currently stars as DI Ruth Calder in the popular BBC drama Shetland, having taken over from Douglas Henshall who left the show after seven series.
The show features a group of detectives who investigate crime within the close-knit island community.
Meanwhile, Kenny is best known for his role as DS Aiden Healy in ITV1’s British crime drama Vera.
