Our jaws dropped when we read this story on Us Weekly. According to them, everyone’s favorite Carey Mulligan is married to Marcus Mumford, her musician beau! The couple have been dating since early last year — they met at a Mumford & Sons gig in Nashville on February — and rumors of Mulligan and Mumford being engaged took off soon after. Turns out, he popped the question in August last year after just five months of dating, but they took their time with a nice long engagement. It’s being said that that they got hitched on a farm in Somerset, England, over the weekend. The thought of it makes us sigh already because this whole Somerset farm thing is truly dreamy. It’s the perfect spot for the ideal hipster wedding. The countryside is the spot now.
Apparently, they exchanged their “I do’s” in front of some hundred guests, who included their famous friends, like Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal. That doesn’t even begin to satisfy us! We need more details — like the dress! Photographs! Something? But we are very happy for the newly married couple. Congratulations, you two!
British pixie dream girl Carey Mulligan has had her share of famous loves over the past year, including Shia ‘The Beef” LaBeouf and Tom “Crazy Beard” Sturridge. But now the Daily Mail is reporting that she is engaged to Mumford and Sons songster Marcus Mumford…after only dating for five months! Girl, back it up a step. The two met at a Mumford gig in Nashville this February, and she accompanied them on a portion of their tour across America in a vintage train. Ahh, we can’t take the throwbacky preciousness!
According to the article, the question was popped in an expensive English seaside hotel, and Carey spent the trip showing guests her massive engagement rock. “Carey looked like the cat who had got the cream,” says one guest. “She was wearing a beautiful ring and didn’t seem to mind who saw it. They were stuck to each other like glue. She was doing most of the talking and he was hanging on her every word.” If all this is true, Zooey Deschanel and Ben Gibbard have serious competition for their “Ultimate Twee-Couple” crown.
Well, color us jealous. Personally, we think Redmayne is capital-H Hot, but we’re kind of envious of Mulligan for managing to charm all three Brits with her feminine wiles. The question is, if you had to pit them all against each other, which pasty Englishman would win in a Battle Royale? Redmayne is certainly a fox with acting chops to boot, having won a Tony last year. And you also have Tom Sturridge, who’s already been snapped up by Sienna Miller and can claim to be the “be fri” to Robert Pattinson‘s “st end.” But then, how can one resist Marcus Mumford’s musical prowess? Who cares if he looks like a British version of Steve Perry from Journey just ate Ken Marino from The State? The guy can sing.
So who would you pick to be your beau? (Assuming you earned their affection and they were all fighting for you, obvs.) It’s certainly a tough competition.
