Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford were married in England on Saturday

Wow, Radar was right! So was The Mail. The British and American tabloids were all claiming that Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford’s wedding was imminent, and Radar said everything was going down this weekend – and they were right! Carey and Marcus were married yesterday, Saturday, in Somerset, England. I was right too – Kate Moss made it cool for hipsters to get married in the English countryside again. Carey and Marcus got hitched on an honest-to-God FARM. And they had some big celebrity guests 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.

Sienna Miller? Jake Gyllenhaal? I’m surprised at who did NOT show up at her wedding too – no one from The Great Gatsby, not Michael Fassbender or Shame director Steve McQueen, no Ryan Gosling. Granted, you don’t have to invite everyone you’ve ever worked with or even recently worked with, but it’s certainly interesting to think that these are the Hollywood types that Carey is close to – Jake and Sienna. And I love that Colin Firth came! I want to have a wedding just so Colin Firth will come. Carey is also supposed to be very tight with Emma Thompson – I wonder if Emma and Greg Wise were there?

More details – Marcus’s dad is a vicar, and he performed the ceremony. British sources claim Carey’s dress was Versace. Something in ivory, and backless. There’s also a rumor that Adele performed at the reception, which… if that happened, that’s cooler than having Colin Firth come to your wedding.

    They are adorable together.

  5. Tillie says:

    Love them both. Wish them the best.
    What a super nice and goodlooking couple..

  6. Mouse says:

    For what it’s worth (nothing!) I approve :) Does Mumford ever have a type though, ever see Marling with short hair?

  7. Sefa says:

    So cute, and so happy for them! I think Jake is actually from the groom’s side/bff with Mumford and met Carey that way.

  8. rtms says:

    Hmmm she’s also suppose to be tight with Keira Knightley but it doesn’t seem she was there either. Still good for them, I wonder if they danced in a barn and all. Sounds lovely.

  9. Mirella says:

    How wonderful! Congrats!

  10. polk8dot says:

    She is a wonderful actress, and seems like a very nice, sweet young lady. I know nothing about him, but they look very happy together. I love that when they are talking, their whole faces are happy – that is genuine joy of being together. None of that Hollywood, put upon for the cameras BS.
    Plus the way she smiles/laugh, it is just simply so endearing – her whole face lights up. Adorable.
    I wish them many, many happy years together. Cheers! :)

  11. Brin says:

    Congrats to them….bet it was a beautiful wedding!

  12. Jackie says:

    they look cute together, but sooo young to be getting married!

    • Iggles says:

      I don’t think they’re too young! The bride is 26! That’s not a teenager, though for guys 24 is on the younger side of the bell curve these days.

      Good luck to them both! Glad she left Shia behind – he’s such a tool ;-)

      • sullivan says:

        I agree with you. They aren’t too young to be married. They certainly seem mature enough to marry. There are people in their 30s & 40s who are old enough to marry, by anyone’s standards, but aren’t mature enough.

  13. awwww… congratulations to Sally Sparrow!

  14. ella says:

    Ahem, I’m pretty sure English people have been getting married in the English countryside for centuries. Hardly anything Kate Moss invented. Once American, French and German celebrities start flooding the English countryside to get married, perhaps then we can talk about a “trend”…

  15. Liv says:

    Congrats! Really cute couple!!

    But why is she friends with Sienna Miller? Weird.

    • Justyna says:

      Carey is friends with Tom Sturridge, Sienna’s fiance and baby-daddy and I think Sienna was just a plus-one at this wedding. Back in the 2010 there were rumours that Carey and Tom were dating because they were pictured a lot together but she was just starting the relationship with Marcus at the time and Tom is just her friend.

      @Sefa #7 – Jake is friends with both of them – he met Carey on set of the movie “Brothers” and she starred with his brother-in-law in “An Education”. He’s also friends with Marcus’s entire band. There are many pictures of them together and he talked in interviews about their friendship and his admiration for M&S’s music.

      • Liv says:

        Ah, okay, I hope you are right :-) Carey seems so nice and down to earth and Sienna seems so full of herself and attention seeking! ;-)

  16. Lila says:

    I’ve loved her ever sinnce she lived in a Best Western. Lol, she’s so adorable and real. I wish them both much happiness in the future.

  17. L says:


    And as someone who got married this year, country/rustic chic weddings are a HUGE trend right now. And have been for the last 3 or 4 years. Style me pretty is pretty much built around that aesthetic. So if anything, Kate Moss is just following the trend and just bringing it to the UK

  18. Gene Parmesan says:

    LOVE IT!!!! congrats carey And Mumford & sons guy

  19. Kayla says:

    He sings, plays guitar and the kick drum all at the same time so he is quality! She is cute. Awwww, darlings.

  20. The Original Mia says:

    Didn’t Jake & Carey attend the private concert in Nashville that brought Marcus & Carey together? I thought I remember seeing pictures of them in some house for the concert.

    Happy for both of them. They seem really happy together, and Lord knows she deserves it after putting up with Shia.

  21. Steen says:

    So much cuteness…

  22. mia girl says:

    I love this couple. Two low-key talented people. So happy for them.

  23. Reece says:

    Congrats to them!

    I couldn’t have Colin Firth at my wedding. I’d be in tears that he’s not the groom. lol

  24. Jennifer12 says:

    Extremely cool couple.

  25. Marianne says:


    Where the eff did that come from? Were they even engaged?

  26. Princess Lizabeth says:

    That’s happy news. Best wishes to them both.

  27. Adrien says:

    Uh, Ok, COngrats. I thought Marcus was still dating Laura Marling. I see he has a type. Now I’m thinking an Adele type album for Marling on the horizon.

  28. little-red says:

    I read elsewhere that they were penpals as children and reconnected as adults. So sweet!

  29. stephanie says:

    was that her wedding dress? It’s interesting. I think this girl is just gorgeous.

  30. anya says:

    You gotta read MK’s post about this on dlisted- I laughed so hard I cried!

  31. EmmaStoneWannabe says:

    “There’s also a rumor that Adele performed at the reception, which… if that happened, that’s cooler than having Colin Firth come to your wedding.” Ohh to be famous ;) Happy for them, they seem so cute.
