Congratulations are in order for Benedict Cumberbatch! The Oscar-nominated British actor tied the knot with theater director Sophie Hunter on Valentine’s Day.
His representative released a statement that confirmed the marriage, saying, “Benedict and Sophie were married yesterday surrounded by their close friends and family. It was a magical day."
According to E! News, about 100 guests attended the private ceremony that was held at St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church on the Isle of Wight in England. The reception took place at the historic Mottistone Manor, to which Hunter has family ties. Her maternal great-great-grandfather John Seely was the first Baron Mottistone, whose family purchased the property in the 1860s.
Details of the wedding are being kept under wraps, but it’s rumored that guests included Tom Hiddleston and Martin Freeman.
No word yet on where the couple plans to honeymoon, but the newlyweds are expected to be in Los Angeles to attend the Academy Awards on Sunday.
