British actress-turned-photographer Amanda de Cadenet and Strokes guitar player Nick Valensi have wed and are expecting twins, PEOPLE has confirmed.

De Cadenet, 34, and Valensi, 25, were married on a beach in the Bahamas during a break from the Strokes’ current world tour.

“The two of us went quite alone to Harbour Island in the Bahamas,” de Cadenet tells the U.K.’s Hello! magazine. “I’m really pleased it was just me and Nick at our wedding, because I cried the whole time.”

The couple, who met five years ago on an MTV shoot, are expecting twins in November. The marriage and children are the first for Valensi. De Cadenet has a daughter, Atlanta, 14, from her previous marriage to Duran Duran’s John Taylor.

De Cadenet once co-hosted the British late-night show The Word and had small roles in such films as 1995’s Four Rooms and 1999’s Brokedown Palace. She is now a photographer for magazines including Vanity Fair, Vogue and Jane. The French-Tunisian Valensi joined the Strokes while still in high school, and is the band’s youngest member.
