Cumberbatch confirms Valentine's Day marriage
Benedict Cumberbatch has confirmed his marriage to Sophie Hunter. The actor's spokeswoman told BBC the couple got married on Valentine's Day, and added that “it was a magical day”.
The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony with family and close friends on the Isle of Wight. Guests at event are said to have included Tom Hiddleston and Cumberbatch's Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman.
Sophie Hunter first met Cumberbatch when they appeared together in the 2009 film “Burlesque Fairytales”. They shunned the token celebrity Instagram post to announce their engagement in an eight-line notice in the Times newspaper in November.
The “Sherlock” star has been shortlisted for an Oscar for his role as mathematician and Second World War code breaker Alan Turing in “The Imitation Game”.
Sophie Hunter has appeared in “Torchwood” and “Midsomer Murders” in the past.
