Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford finally set the marriage rumors to rest, and were married yesterday in Somerset, England. The two were married on a farm, in front of family and friends (and some celebrities too!).
Carey Mulligan is a married woman! The Drive actress wed Marcus Mumford at a farm in Somerset, England in front of approximately 100 guests, including family and celeb pals, Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal, on Saturday, Us Weekly has confirmed.
After just five months together, the Mumford & Sons singer, 24, popped the question to the British star, 26, in August 2011.
“They’re a great couple,” a pal told Us of the duo who were childhood pen pals in London. “Very sweet.”
Things first got serious when Mulligan and Gyllenhaal caught a secret Mumford & Sons show in Nashville, Tenn. February 2011 at the home of band members from The Apache Relay.
“At the end of the night there were just the musicians, Jake, Carey, and the Mumford boys,” an insider told Us at the time. “We had some pizza, and just played music. Jake picked up a guitar and Carey joined in on ‘Amazing Grace.’ Marcus and Carey seemed really friendly.”
A few days later, Mulligan and Mumford caught a secret Arcade Fire show in NYC before hitting up a private members only club, a second insider told Us.
Oscar-nominated Mulligan split with longtime beau Shia LaBeouf back in October 2010; Mumford broke up with singer Laura Marling in late 2010.
Rumor has it Adele performed at their reception, and if that’s true – can you imagine!! How amazing would that be!
Apparently Carey and Marcus have known each other for years.
