London: Singer turned songwriter Amelia Warner said her brief `marriage` to Hollywood actor Colin Farrell was not legally binding.

The 29-year-old musician, who records under the name Slow Moving Millie, was reported to have married the Irishman in Tahiti in 2001 when she was just 19, but the couple split several months later, Daily Express reported.

"We didn`t actually get married - it`s not actually true. I think we`ve been too polite to deny it. We had a ceremony on a beach in Tahiti that was by no means legal and we knew it wasn`t. It was just a thing we did on holiday. We went shark feeding and then we did that. We booked them both on the activities desk at the hotel.

"It really wasn`t this secret wedding that no one was invited to. It was lovely, it was silly, it was sweet but by no means was it a serious thing and I think my mum thought it was quite funny," she said.

Warner also said she was devastated when the relationship came to an end.

"It was a very intense and passionate relationship. It was heartbreaking when it ended," she added.
