Actor set to marry fiancée in surprise Valentine’s Day ceremony


He broke our hearts three months ago when he announced that he was engaged to pregnant girlfriend Sophie Hunter, and it looks as though actor Benedict Cumberbatch’s surprises haven’t ended there!

According to reports this weekend, the couple are set to tie the knot TODAY in an intimate ceremony on the Isle of Wight.

Among those rumoured to attend the ceremony, set to be held in an exquisite period house, are Benedict’s co-stars Keira Knightley and Martin Freeman.

In possibly our favourite detail from the big day, it’s believed that Sherlock star Freeman will be Benedict’s best man. How sweet!

Commenting on the couple’s news back in January, an insider said: “The invitations have gone out already, which is very quick. It’s shocked a few people but they want their special day to happen before they have the baby.”

“The details have been sent out in an email rather than a paper invitation as time is of the essence,” the source added.

Benedict and Sophie have known each other for five years, and were reportedly dating for five months before announcing their engagement.

We hope they have a beautiful wedding – they couldn’t have picked a more romantic day for it!
