The ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ star and the British filmmaker say ‘I do’ in the Cotswolds, England in a ceremony attended by Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hanks.
“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” star Felicity Jones and her director boyfriend Charles Guard have wed in a super secret summer ceremony.
The actress and her boyfriend of three years tied the knot in the Cotswolds, England on Saturday, June 30, according to reports, while sources tell The Sun the bride’s “The Theory of Everything” co-star Eddie Redmayne and Tom Hanks were among the wedding guests.
The 34 year old became Mrs. Guard at Sudeley Castle, where King Henry VIII’s sixth wife, Katherine Parr, is buried. Staff at the historic home closed the grounds early on Saturday to accommodate the wedding, but even locals had no idea a celebrity ceremony had been planned.
The wedding took place less than four months after Felicity and Eddy attended the funeral of physicist and author Stephen Hawking in March.
The actor, who won an Oscar for his portrayal of the professor in the 2014 biopic “The Theory of Everything”, and Felicity, who played Hawking’s first wife Jane, were among the celebrity guests at the memorial held at Great St. Mary’s Church in Cambridge, England.
Details of the bride’s wedding outfit remain under lock and key but it’s unlikely Jones wore a budget dress, like she did when she first attended the BAFTAs in 2011.
The British beauty was invited to the British Academy Film & Television Awards for the first time shortly after winning a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival for her work in indie movie “Like Crazy”, but she was totally unprepared for the glamorous event, and instead of breaking the bank to purchase an expensive couture gown, she sourced her dress from a second-hand store and she did her makeup in her brother’s bathroom ahead of the ceremony.
“I remember feeling anxious that I’d look like a total tourist standing next to the most famous actresses in Britain,” she told Harper’s Bazaar magazine earlier this year. “I was sharing a tiny flat in East London with three other people, so on the night of the awards I went to my brother’s place to get ready because there was a bit more room there.
“There used to be a consignment shop in Fitzrovia called Bang Bang that was fantastic for finding lovely pieces, like Yves Saint Laurent shift dresses and Victorian blouses and velvet jackets…, but on this occasion my publicist played fairy godmother and managed to conjure up a 1950s tea-length tulle number with velvet straps that somehow fit perfectly, right off the rack.
“I loved that the dress had a timeless film-star chic about it without a lot of bells and whistles. Wearing it, I didn’t feel nearly as out of place as I imagined I would. In fact, it gave me the confidence to chat up one of my childhood idols, Helena Bonham Carter.”
