I don’t think I’ve done any coverage of Carey Mulligan’s relationship with Marcus Mumford. I haven’t been trying to ignore them, honestly. I really love Carey – I think she’s a wonderful actress, and a genuinely funny, pretty little thing. As for Marcus (of Mumford & Sons), well… physically, he reminds me a lot of a guy I used to date, and I associate Marcus with that d-bag. It’s not fair to Marcus. By most accounts, Marcus is a good guy, and he and Carey got loved-up really quickly. Something about how they were childhood pen pals who reconnected last year, followed by a whirlwind romance and a quick engagement, which they announced last August. I’ve been hearing rumors in the UK press that the nuptials will happen at any moment, but I didn’t really believe it. Now Radar is reporting it:
Carey Milligan is getting hitched! The 26-year-old An Education star is marrying her fiancé of nine months, Mumford and Sons singer, Marcus Mumford, this weekend in the English countryside!
“Carey and Marcus are counting down the days till they tie the knot! She is absolutely walking on air and can hardly contain her excitement,” an insider exclusively tells RadarOnline.com. “They don’t care that some of their friends think they are rushing things. They are madly in love and know they are perfect for each other.”
After her breakup with Transformers star Shia LaBeouf in late 2010 she was briefly linked to Jake Gyllenhaal before becoming engaged to Marcus last August.
“It’s going to be an amazing weekend as they will be surrounded by their closest family and friends,” the insider said. “Its a dream come true for Carey.”
I have to wonder if Kate Moss didn’t make it cool for British kids to get married in the English countryside. Ever since Kate’s wedding, it feels like there’s a renewed movement amongst Cool Britiannia to have old-fashioned country weddings. Anyway, I now think it’s on – Carey and Marcus will be married within a week! And Carey is set to co-chair this year’s Met Gala too – busy girl! That’s probably where Carey and Marcus will make their red carpet debut as a married couple, right?
