Earlier this week, several reports surfaced about Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford who were said to be tying the knot over the weekend. The rumors were confirmed to be true and Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford got married on a farm in Somerset England.
Like many other celebrity couples today, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons didn’t wait too much before tying the knot. In fact, these two love birds have started dating in 2011 and then another five months later they announced their engagement.
According to the Daily Mail, Carey Mulligan and Marcus Mumford got married this weekend on a little farm in Somerset England, accompanied by a close party of family and friends. By close party we meant about 200 guests, a list of names that ranges from actress Sienna Miller to Oscar winner Colin Firth and star Jake Gyllenhaal.
Carey Mulligan had not one or two, but eight bridesmaids dressed in turquoise prom dresses of knee length. The actress looked stunning in a backless wedding dress with V straps in an ivory nuance. Meanwhile, Marcus, frontman for Mumford & Sons, was seen warring Ray-Ban sunglasses as he arrived at the wedding ceremony with a helicopter.
John Mumford, Marcus’ father, conducted the service in a barn. But even if a farm, a barn and hay might not be what most brides have in mind for their special day, their ceremony was a success. It couldn’t have been otherwise, since Bentley’s Entertainment took charge of the party planning committee.
A source close to the newlyweds told Us Magazine that Marcus Mumford and Carey Mulligan make “a great couple”. The truth is that their love story is very sweet. They knew each other since childhood, when they were pen pals in London. But it was nothing serious until the two found each other face to face at a Mumford & Sons gig in Nashville last year.
Back then, an insider told Us Magazine that even if it looked like they just met, “Marcus and Carey seemed really friendly”. Apparently, after the band finished the gig they spent the rest of the night playing music. At one point “Jake picked up a guitar and Carey joined in on ‘Amazing Grace’”.
