British actress Kate Winslet and film-maker Sam Mendes have secretly wed.

A statement released on the couple's behalf yesterday (09JUN03) says they exchanged vows last month (MAY03) during a holiday in the West Indies.

Only Winslet's two-year-old daughter Mia and three close friends attended the private ceremony.

It's the second marriage for TITANIC beauty and the first for 37-year-old Road To Perdition director Mendes.

Winslet, 27, split from first husband JIM THREAPLETON in 2001 after three years of marriage.
