Sam recently said that he and Briony ‘liked the idea of a big family,’ but not yet as ‘neither of them felt ready’ for children.

He told OK!: ‘We want to enjoy being married for a while first and do some more travelling.’ 

Sam exchanged vows with Briony in front of friends and family members at the lavish Cheshire venue Stock Farm.

The soap star recently admitted that despite their idyllic marriage, he actually ‘ended’ his relationship with the stunning yoga teacher when he was a teenager because he felt they were ‘too young’ to be together.

He told the Mirror in July: ‘Briony and I met when I was about 15 or 16. We talked through MSN messenger and then went on a date. We got together, but we were very young. I ended it – which she always likes to bring up.’ 

Sharing how years later they rekindled their romance, the star revealed that Briony was helping out at a drama workshop where he taught. 

Sam revealed: ‘We went for a meal that night at a country pub and that was it. We’ve been together ever since.’
