Blake Lively has returned to work following her surprise wedding to Ryan Reynolds.

The 25-year-old actress - who tied the knot with the Hollywood heartthrob on September 9 in a secret ceremony - turned up on the set of her TV show 'Gossip Girl' this morning (17.09.12) in New York and looked excited to be reprising her role of Serena van der Woodsen.

Blake was very casual in a black jacket as she chatted on her phone and she managed to keep her wedding ring under wraps.

Blake and Ryan - who met on the set of 'Green Lantern' and have been dating for around a year - wed in front of 60 of their closest friends and family in Charleston, South Carolina, and after the nuptials they spent a few days in the area.

Their wedding planner Tara Guerard revealed the couple were closely involved in every aspect of the planning the day and wanted a ''fun'' and laid back wedding.

She said: ''Ryan and Blake wanted the event to look and feel like home. We created the charm, elegance and magic of times past. It was a truly elegant celebration.''
