HONG KONG - "Lust, Caution" star Tang Wei found legendary director Ingmar Bergman's island home to be the perfect scene for a wedding.

The Chinese actress and South Korean director Kim Tae-yong wed in a small ceremony July 12 at Bergman's home on the Swedish island of Faro.

The couple had announced their engagement earlier this month. Tang's management sent out a statement on Thursday night saying the couple visited the Bergman home to pay their respects to the late film director and the wedding was a spur-of-the-moment decision.

At a public appearance in Shanghai on Tuesday, Tang was asked about her engagement and replied that when a woman comes across a "life-changing opportunity," she shouldn't let it pass her by.

Tang and Kim met on the set of his romance drama "Late Autumn" in 2010.

She received rave reviews for her big-screen debut in Ang Lee's 2007 spy thriller, but the politically sensitive role of a traitor reportedly landed her on Chinese film officials' blacklist for three years. Her other films include "Crossing Hennessy," ''Wu Xia" and "Finding Mr. Right."

She will be making her Hollywood debut in director Michael Mann's new thriller "Cyber" in 2015.

Kim made his directorial debut with the coming-of-age film "Free to Fly" in 1997. His other writing and directing credits include "Memento Mori" and "Family Ties."

This is the first marriage for Tang and second for Kim.

Faro was Bergman's home for decades and the setting of some of his best films. The director of "Through a Glass Darkly," ''Scenes from a Marriage" and "Wild Strawberries" died in 2007.
