Vicky McClure let her hair down during her wedding reception on Friday while partying with her Line of Duty co-stars after secretly marrying fiancé Jonny Owen.
The actress, 40, had earlier walked down the aisle with her film director boyfriend, 54, at a romantic ceremony in Nottingham, before announcing the news on BBC Wales’s show Jonny’s daughter , Katie Owen.
And Vicky was certainly off-duty during the evening’s festivities as she drank cans of Red Stripe Beer with co-stars Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar, as well as Line of Duty creator Jed Mercurio.
The group looked in high spirits as they happily posed for photos together, with Vicky grabbing her drink to take the photo.
Then things took a comedic turn when Martin, who plays DI Steve Arnott in the police drama, and Jed Mercurio donned police hats alongside actor Craig Parkinson, who plays DI Matthew ‘Dot’ Cottan.

Captioning his selection of hilarious photos, Martin wrote on Instagram: ‘Amazing day in Notts celebrating the best of @vicky.mcclure and @jonathanowen71 nuptials.
“The first dance with the dementia choir was just beautiful and it says everything about the two sharing their moment with the dementia team ❤️ afterwards there were some shandies.”
Meanwhile, Vicky also reached out to her new husband at one point during the party, with the newlyweds grabbing a glass of soda in the middle of the booze party.
Jonny also shared a lovely snap with his daughter Katie Owens, who looked gorgeous in a fringed green dress, before she had to rush off to host her 10pm radio show.
The couple later announced their nuptials on his show, with Vicky sharing live on air: “We had the most amazing special day and we’re heartbroken you had to come back but we’re so proud of you.”

He added: “I remember we were walking down the Southbank (in London) on a weekend off from filming and we were going to the Tate Modern and she turned to me and asked if I’d like to go to the pub instead.
‘And I was like, well, yeah! I thought: “What a girl.”
‘I think almost simultaneously we both said, “I like you!” She just fell from there and we haven’t been apart since.
“I was going through a divorce at the time and had been separated for seven or eight months. I think we went from “I like you” in the pub to “I love you” in about 10 seconds.
