Eddie Redmayne married Hannah Bagshawe in a candlelit ceremony in England


Months before Benedict Cumberbatch SHOCKED the world by announcing his engagement to Sophie Hunter in the announcements section of The Times, Eddie Redmayne did the exact same thing. Eddie and his fiancée Hannah Bagshawe announced their engagement publicly too, and they did it through The Times and there was very little fuss about it. Mostly because Eddie and Hannah have been together for a few years, plus she had already walked several red carpets with Eddie as his girlfriend. His fans knew about her, he had talked about her in interviews, and almost everyone was really happy for him. He managed to find a balance between maintaining some privacy and publicly celebrating his love. It was lovely. And now Hannah and Eddie have gotten hitched!

Eddie Redmayne is a married man. The Theory of Everything star, 32, tied the knot with fiancée Hannah Bagshawe on Monday at Babington House in Somerset, England, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“I am happy to confirm that Hannah and Eddie married today,” the rep says in a statement. “They celebrated with a small number of close family and friends.”

Redmayne and Bagshawe were engaged over Memorial Day weekend. The actor has been nominated for both Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe awards for his portrayal of theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking as the role continues to garner Oscar buzz.

“It shows that the people seem to be responding to it,” Redmayne told PEOPLE last week. “As an actor, if you’re lucky enough to tell interesting stories about interesting people, then that’s a dream. But when they touch a nerve or connect people, that’s even better, so it does feel like an extraordinary thing. I’m just really happy right now.”

Us Weekly says that the wedding was an “evening candlelit ceremony” with a theme of “Winter Wonderland.” Us Weekly’s sources also say that Hannah was “taking the lead on everything” with the wedding planning and Eddie was “just trying to make her happy but doesn’t want it to be a huge affair.”

In case anyone wants to build some sort of Oscar campaign conspiracy theory… I don’t think there’s much there. He’s been talking about their winter wedding for months now, long before he knew that he was being shortlisted for Best Actor at every major awards show. I think Eddie and Hannah are just in love and they planned their wedding completely separate from the awards hoopla. Congrats to them! God, I hope Benedict Cumberbatch doesn’t try to pull off some “secret wedding” to Sophie before the Golden Globes.

    Congrats on the wedding. They seem really in love and just wanted to get married. Nothing to do with award season…

    Benedict pulling a secret wedding? Oh please – there is a bigger chance of Kim KaFakeians winning the mother of the year award than Benedict marrying in secret.

    He is going to make it bigger, more hollywood and extravagant than Clooney did.

    God save all of us gossip loving mortals – there will hourly threads when it finally happens.

    I think he is lovely. Congrats to them.

    • NYer says:

      He should adopt 1 or 2 more facial expressions when being photographed. This one — squinty eyes, partially open non-smiling mouth, hair just so — is really old.

  3. Mikasa says:

    Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Redmayne!
    No secret wedding for Cumby….Harvey will not allow it!!

    Awww, so sweet.

    Best wishes for much happiness for the two of them.

    Congrats to the lovely couple.

  7. Abbott says:

    These award season nuptials are awful thirsty. Good thing they’re all sponsored by Casamigos tequila.

  8. scarf girl says:

    These two are cute as buttons and make my Grinch heart grow a little before having my coffee. Congrats to them!

    Firstly, considering their backgrounds, I don’t understand why anyone is surprised, or thinks it’s a publicity stunt, that they announced their engagement in the times. It’s what everyone of their background does.

    Secondly, again using background, i’m surprised Eddie married at Babington House. That’s Soho House for the country set. He’s never struck me as the trendy soho house crowd type, but I guess I was wrong.

    I expected him to marry in a more traditional location and conform to traditional MO especially as he already did that with the wedding announcement.

    Oh well.

    that said, Mazel tov! May they live a very happy and successful marriage.

    • **sighs** says:

      Maybe she’s the one that’s trendy soho? Not that I even know what that means…

      • scarf girl says:

        It could also be availability and scheduling? Both for locations and people? Planning a wedding is like herding cats, especially around the holiday ( at least in my neck of woods).

      • **sighs** says:

        Herding cats. Love it.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      She did the wedding planning; he just showed up.

    • InvaderTak says:

      Can the very middle class American get a translation here? I’m assuming you mean they’re both posher, high class types and got married at the lastest wedding hot spot rather than at a more posher traditional locale. Care to elaborate? The British society system is fairly interesting.

      • LAK says:

        Put this way, if this were an episode of SATC, Eddie, who I see as a traditional Charlotte type, would marry as tradition dictates with all the trimmings. He doesn’t strike me as someone who is an achingly trendy and cool media type. Instead, Eddie has done what Carrie would do, which is to marry in a media trendy spot.

        I will say, Babington House has it’s own chapel in the grounds, so it’s more contained if you wanted to keep the media away whilst still having the country house experience.

    • Sunny says:

      I don’t think anyone thinks this wedding is for publicity. They have been together awhile and he seems to adore her. She seems lovely and supportive without being too into his fame.

      I’m surprised at the location but maybe she picked it? Is her background similar to Eddie’s upper crust origins?

      Congrats to them both!

    Cute couple! And he is a fabulous actor, saw “Theory of everything”.

  11. A. Key says:

    I’m so jealous!! He’s wonderful, she’s beautiful, they seem really in love, argh, curses!

    Congrats to them 😉

  12. GingerCrunch says:

    The ceremony sounds absolutely heavenly in my mind. Cheers to them!

  13. MtnRunner says:

    An evening candlelit ceremony sounds absolutely lovely. I like the way they have gone about their engagement / wedding in talking about it publicly but not too much. I hope he keeps the privacy factor intact by not selling the pictures.

    They are good looking couple. All the best to them.

  14. Lilacflowers says:

    Okay, who was on the guest list?

  15. shannon says:

    I love her style. No muss, no fuss. A real natural beauty.

  16. Green Girl says:

    Are Monday weddings typical for people like Eddie and Hannah? I am picturing the proverbial manure hitting the fan if I had wanted to get married on a Monday, when everyone I know has to work a 9 to 5 job, M-F.

    • moodgirl says:

      I would only marry on a Monday if I were trying to save some serious cash. You’re right, who could come?
