Benedict Cumberbatch's Low-Key Valentine's Day Wedding

19 Feb 2015

The Sherlock star tied the knot

We thought they looked awkward together at the BAFTAs, but if their top secret Valentine’s Day wedding was anything to go by, Benedict Cumberbatch and his pregnant partner Sophie Hunter just don’t like being in the spotlight. Only 40 guests were said to be invited to their ceremony, and the bride’s arrival was strategically blocked from photographers by a white van. Cumberbatch tried other Sherlock-style tactics to keep his big day in the little village of Mottistone on the Isle of Wight under wraps, but local councillor Chris Whitehouse let the cat out of the bag, tweeting: ‘Isle of Wight’s gone mad with Benedict Cumberbatch marriage fever this morning.” Foiled again!
