Carey Mulligan & Marcus Mumford Got Hitched!


Congrats are in order for actress Carey Mulligan and musician Marcus Mumford because … the pair got themselevs hitched in an intimate English wedding yesterday. In front of a reported group of 100 guests (including Jake Gyllenhaal, Sienna Miller and more), Carey and Marcus said their I Dos in Somerset, England. The pair got themselves engaged to be married 5 months after they started dating last year and then decided to get married just 8 months after that. Click below to find out all the reported deets about Carey and Marcus’s nuptials.

Carey Mulligan is a married woman! The Drive actress wed Marcus Mumford at a farm in Somerset, England in front of approximately 100 guests, including family and celeb pals, Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal, on Saturday, Us Weekly has confirmed. After just five months together, the Mumford & Sons singer, 24, popped the question to the British star, 26, in August 2011. “They’re a great couple,” a pal told Us of the duo who were childhood pen pals in London. “Very sweet.” Things first got serious when Mulligan and Gyllenhaal caught a secret Mumford & Sons show in Nashville, Tenn. February 2011 at the home of band members from The Apache Relay. “At the end of the night there were just the musicians, Jake, Carey, and the Mumford boys,” an insider told Us at the time. “We had some pizza, and just played music. Jake picked up a guitar and Carey joined in on ‘Amazing Grace.’ Marcus and Carey seemed really friendly.”

Wow! This relationship … wow, it really just took off didn’t it? If you may recall, we learned back in February of 2011 that Carey and Marcus were first introduced to one another by their mutual friend Jake Gyllenhaal at a house party in Nashville, TN. At the time, I assumed it was Jake and Carey who were hooking up … turns out, Jake was just playing matchmaker. It’s only fitting that he was invited to the wedding ceremony yesterday. Honestly, it feels like Carey and Marcus *just* met — and now they’re husband and wife … I mean, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that Carey was dating Shia LaBeouf. But, when love strikes … love strikes hard. Let’s send our love and congrats to the happy couple! May they live happily ever after … or something.


  • TBH I thought she was still single from her breakup with Shia. She moves fast. Hope Shia isn’t too crushed lol!

    I just read another article saying that “they’ve known each other since childhood” I thought that was cool that they reconnected but now I don’t know what’s true or not, lol

    • @Lena — Oh yeah, there’s some story going around that they were pen pals as kids and only reconnected after they both got famous? I dunno.

  • Carmen

    Congrats! And it does seem like she was JUST dating Shia!
    And some other gossip website (i think it was People) said they were penpals years ago… I don’t know….

    Continuing from last comment:
    “Mulligan, 26, and Mumford, 25, were childhood pen pals in London and reconnected as adults.”
