Actress Carey Mulligan has tied the knot with Marcus Mumford, from folk band Mumford & Sons, in an intimate farm ceremony the Daily Mail reports.

The pair wed in front of approximately 100 guests, including Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal, at a farm in Somerset, England, on Saturday, according to US Weekly.

Mulligan and Mumford have kept details of their nuptials closely guarded, although British newspaper The Sun reported that the couple enlisted British songstress Adele to perform at their special day.

"Carey and Marcus are both huge fans of Adele and there will be millions of couples jealous that she is singing for them," a source told the publication.

"Adele has always wanted to work with Mumford & Sons so when Marcus asked her to play at his wedding she said yes. Adele has not been able to perform much at all since her throat op so it's a rare gig.

"It was meant to be a secret but the couple were so excited they've let it slip," the source said.

The couple met in Nashville, where Mumford & Sons were performing last year. Mulligan had only recently split from Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf.

It was previously reported the pair are eager to set up their marital home in a farmhouse in the southwest of England. Mulligan recently admitted she would happily give up her Hollywood career and become a housewife if she ever feels disillusioned with Hollywood.

"I'm not going to work for the sake of working," she said in an interview. "I'll work, if I'm extraordinarily lucky enough to continue having the same opportunities, but it will be based on whatever is there. If there's nothing around, then I'll go home and make carrot cake for a while."

  • Disaster looms large on the horizon. She is way out of his league, she just been seduced by the music. Musical seduction is only good for about 3 years. Oh well, at least she's in good company with this all to common judgement flaw. Love is indeed blind.

    • 3 years is very generous Jessica. I was going to say 18 months and then we read about how conflicting work schedules meant they had drifted apart and have parted amicably.

      • Mulligan and Mumford were actually childhood pen pals. Jessica, you may not want to be so judgemental.

      • Why do so many celebrities, especially women, get married so quickly and so young? Is it because they are an attractive proposition for the spouse and the spouse thus proposes quickly? Is it because they can easily afford the wedding? Is it because they long for affection and stability in an industry full of superficiality and instability? Have studies been done on this phenomenon? I thought Mulligan was more sensible... sigh

        • @ frau:

          I'd say a mixture of all the reasons you mentioned, plus I'll bet she is really keen to have babies. If it makes her happy, why not? Personally, I love listening to Mumford and Sons. Their songs are deep, so although he's a bit chubby-cheeked, I don't think Marcus is bad looking and he is probably not as shallow as a lot of celebrities. Good luck to them!

        • 27yrs old is to young to be married? From what she has said in interviews, she would be one of the few hollywood actors I would rate as sensible...

      • The Quantocks in Somerset are a truly beautiful and very unspoilt part of Somerset, next to wild forest, no motorways and very 'local'. The organic farm and apple orchard is probably the seductive factor then in this marriage. Good choice methinks. Good luck guys.
