Owain Yeoman, best known for his role on "The Mentalist," revealed his recent wedding this week.

The 35-year-old Welsh actor portrays Agent Wayne Rigsby on CBS' police procedural television series.

Although he waited almost a month to reveal his nuptials, Yeoman said that he married jewelry designer Gigi Yallouz on Sept. 7, according to People magazine.

The couple married at a private estate in Malibu, Calif.

"Gigi is my perfect partner, she's my best friend," Yeoman gushed to the magazine. "She's the most fun of anyone I know and she's also the kindest and most tolerant person. I work in a business of extremes, so when you are with someone who is very calm and logical, it's a great kind of balance to have. She really is my soulmate."

It is Yeoman's second marriage; the actor was married to Lucy Davis from 2006 to 2011.

When it comes to his career, Yeoman's wedding to Yallouz paralleled his onscreen wedding to "The Mentalist" character Grace Van Pelt, portrayed by actress Amanda Righetti.

"There I was with Gigi on one side and Amanda on the other," said Yeoman of participating in "two weddings in the span of two weeks," according to People.

The wedding episode of "The Mentalist" will air on CBS on Oct. 13.

Meanwhile, the actor stars on "The Mentalist" alongside Simon Baker, Robin Tunney and Tim Kang. Yeoman also appeared in HBO's "Generation Kill" in 2008.

As for other newlyweds in Hollywood, Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez not only tied the knot recently, but the couple just welcomed their son Maceo Robert Martinez on Oct. 5.

"They chose it because it means gift from God," said a source at E! News. "Olivier wanted to give a nod to his Spanish roots. They picked the name awhile ago and they love it."
