Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser have secretly married.

The couple first met when former Gilmore Girls actress Bledel guest starred on Mad Men in 2012 as his mistress. Kartheiser plays Pete Campbell in the hit 1960s series and their on-screen chemistry soon developed behind the cameras.

The lovebirds announced their engagement in March last year but on Wednesday it was confirmed they had tied the knot quietly two months ago.

"The two exchanged I do's during a hush-hush ceremony in California back in June," People magazine said after confirmation came through from Bledel's rep.

Unconfirmed reports state that the 32-year-old wore a floor-length gown, while her 35-year-old beau looked smart in a grey suit. Kartheiser even supposedly cried when he saw his wife walk down the aisle. Guests included his Mad Men co-star Jon Hamm. It is the first marriage for both actors.

The newlyweds didn't get together straightaway after meeting on the show.

"We were completely professional," Kartheiser previously revealed. "We never saw each other out. We never - it was nothing, it was just work."

The former Angel actor didn't leave all the wedding details to his other half either. Alexis told Us Weekly soon after their engagement was announced they were working as a team.

"We're doing it together," she smiled at the time, before adding that her fiancé had chosen her engagement ring by himself.

Bledel has dated a co-star in the past, having been in a relationship with her Gilmore Girls love interest Milo Ventimiglia for more than three years before they split in 2006. Meanwhile Vincent dated his The Hairy Bird co-star Rachael Leigh Cook for four months in 1998.
