Life imitates art for Owain Yeoman!

The actor, whose Mentalist character is set to tie the knot this month, married Gigi Yallouz on Sept. 7 in Malibu, Calif., People reports.

Yeoman and Yallouz, a jewelry designer, exchanged “I do’s” at a private estate in front of about 100 guests, including his Mentalist costar Amanda Righetti. Yeoman and Righetti’s characters, Wayne Rigsby and Grace Van Pelt, will wed in the Oct. 13 episode of the CBS drama. “There I was with Gigi on one side and Amanda on the other,” Yeoman said about having “two weddings in the span of two weeks.”

The couple, who got engaged a year ago, honeymooned in Bora Bora.

“Gigi is my perfect partner. She’s my best friend. She’s the most fun of anyone I know and she’s also the kindest and most tolerant person,” Yeoman told the magazine. “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.”

This is the second marriage for Yeoman, who was previously married to Shaun of the Dead actress Lucy Davis for five years.
