Joanne Froggatt - Downton Abbey's Joanne Froggatt weds

'Downton Abbey' star Joanne Froggatt has married.

The 31-year-old actress - who plays housemaid Anna Bates in the period drama - wed her long-term partner James Cannon last Saturday (06.10.12).

The church ceremony was attended by several cast members from Julian Fellowes' award-winning show.

The blonde beauty is also a married woman on-screen and is constantly trying to prove her husband, valet John Bates - played by Brendan Coyle - didn't murder his first wife.

Joanne will be taking a short break from her role as Anna, to settle in with her IT director husband and enjoy a relaxing honeymoon.

The actress previously admitted she was struggling to find time to plan her wedding while juggling filming commitments.

She told People magazine: ''This is what you hope for, really - you've just got to take these times and enjoy them and grasp them by the horns and go with it because there will be quiet times again in the future. But I'm enjoying every minute of it at the moment.''

Joanne also revealed the 'Downton' cast get on brilliantly behind the scenes, and enjoy going for nights out together when filming is wrapped.

She joked: ''We get along like a house on fire. There's definitely been a few nights on the town with a bit of dancing involved.''

The actress will next star as a policewoman in new film 'Filth' opposite James McAvoy.
