Benedict Cumberbatch Marries on Valentine’s Day

Benedict Cumberbatch is now officially off the market after getting married today, Valentine’s Day!

Cumberbatch, 38, wed his pregnant partner Sophie Hunter, 36, at the medieval St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church in Mottistone on the Isle of Wight, off the coast of England.

The happy couple celebrated the nuptials with a reception at the nearby Mottistone Manor, where guests included the groom’s actor parents Timothy Carlton and Wanda Ventham, and Cumberbatch’s Sherlock co-star Andrew Scott.

Cumberbatch and theatre director Hunter announced their engagement in November, five years after they met on the set of thriller Burlesque Fairytales in 2009. In early January, they revealed they are expecting their first child.

The newlyweds will have to put plans for a long honeymoon on hold – Cumberbatch is expected to attend the Academy Awards in Hollywood next Sunday, when he will compete for the Best Actor Oscar.
