Washington: Carey Mulligan tied the knot with folk rock singer Marcus Mumford in Somerset, England on Saturday. The bride, 26, who bagged an Oscar nomination and a BAFTA for her role in ‘An Education’, exchanged vows with the ‘Mumford ‘n’ Sons’ frontman in a rustic-themed ceremony in the middle of the Somerset countryside.
Mumford’s father John, a vicar, conducted the service inside a barn at Stream Farm in Bridgwater. The newlyweds, who have been engaged for a year, were joined by family and friends at the venue adorned with hay bales, a leading daily has reported.
Eight bridesmaids attended Carey and were clad in turquoise knee-length prom dresses with matching blue high-heels. Mulligan looked radiant in a full-length ivory plain backless dress with V-straps, believed to be a Versace design.
Earlier, the groom, 25, was seen sporting Ray-Ban sunglasses driving himself to the venue before a helicopter, said to be carrying his father, landed in a close by field. Nealry 100 guests, including family and celeb pals, Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal were present for the occasion, Us Weekly reported.
Bentley’s Entertainment, the London-based firm behind Petra Ecclestone’s lavish wedding in Italy last year, organised the party.
