Benedict's co-star Martin Freeman and Avengers actor Tom Hiddleston are thought to have been among the guests.

He and Sophie, who are expecting a baby together later this year, met when they starred alongside each other in the 2009 film Burlesque Fairytales but weren't romantically linked until September 2014.

Their engagement was announced in the social section of The Times on November 5.

Just two months later, they confirmed that they were expecting their first child.

It's looking like an exciting year for Benedict as he is shortlisted for a best actor Oscar for his role as Alan Turing in Imitation Games.

While many will be delighted to hear of Benedict's fabulous wedding news, some will be heartbroken... His army of female fans call themselves the "Cumberb*tches" and were possibly hoping to marry him themselves!

A huge congratulations to Benedict and Sophie!
