The 33-year-old, who plays Lady Mae Loxley in the hit series aired on UTV, didn't inform her family about the wedding; instead telling them she was just going on holiday with her Australian boyfriend Ryan Clark.
Speaking about the ceremony at the Little Church of the West in Las Vegas, she said: "I love going to other people's weddings but I have never desired a big white wedding for myself and it has never been put on me as a pressure, an expectation."
The former Coronation Street actress married Clark on Monday 20 August.
"The day was everything we hoped it would be - no fuss, low-key, sunshine and just us," she said.
"We wanted to enjoy the day without all the usual planning and pressure. We just wanted to let it roll, so it had an on-the-run feel to it.
"We'd been laughing and joking all day and then suddenly everything seemed to stop and we tried to get the words 'I do' out without becoming emotional wrecks. It was awesome. I'll never forget that moment for the rest of my life.
"So many people say you have to remember to grab hold of your bride or groom and spend time with them. I think if we had done a traditional wedding we would have been doing it for everyone else but this was about the two of us."
