Keira Knightley and her new husband James Righton are enjoying a romantic honeymoon in Corsica.

The actress and her musician spouse have taken to the French island in the Mediterranean Sea after getting married on May 4.

The pair were spotted holding hands across a wooden table as they dined al fresco in the sun.

Keira, 28, and her Klaxons keyboardist beau both remained low-key in sunglasses and casual clothing during their holiday.

Sipping on wine and water, the thespian held her partner's hand close to her cheek and they soaked up life as newlyweds.

People magazine reports that the couple also spent some time sun bathing on the beach with the English rose donning a tiny bikini.

It comes after they tied the knot in Mazan, a small village in Provence, France.

The couple wed at a tiny town hall near the Atonement star's farmhouse in front of just 11 guests.

They both wore sunglasses and skipped out of the town hall after the ceremony, using a Renault Clio to transport them to the reception.

The bride reportedly received an olive tree as a wedding gift from her man.

The Sun reports James presented the star with the 100-year-old plant on their big day.

He apparently gave his gift an extra romantic touch by having their initials and the date of the wedding carved into the back.

Keira and James are said to have been introduced by TV presenter Alexa Chung in 2011. They got engaged just a year after in May 2012.
