Former X-Files star Gillian Anderson is a married woman, after quietly tying the knot with her filmmaker boyfriend Julian Ozanne in Africa.

The couple exchanged vows on December 29 on Lamu's Shella Island, off Kenya's Indian Ocean coast.

Anderson, 36, and Ozanne, 42, were married in a civil ceremony by the local district officer and their union was blessed by a Kenyan priest, reports People magazine.

The event was attended only by Anderson's immediate family--who had flown over from the United States--and a handful of close friends in the gardens of London socialite Kate Barker's Moroccan-style beach house. A Kenyan choir sang hymns in Swahili, and the bridesmaid was Gillian's 10-year-old daughter, Piper, from her previous marriage to movie art director Clyde Klotz.

After the ceremony, the couple hosted a dinner of fresh lobsters, crab, and king-size prawns, and fireworks and a fire dancer provided the backdrop.
