The couple announced their engagement shortly after the New Year and they have already tied the knot. Stephen announced the news on Twitter and shared photos from the wedding ceremony. They married in the Norfolk town of Dereham, England.
Old friend and former Blackadder and A Bit of Fry & Laurie co-star, Hugh Laurie, tweeted his congratulations writing “Bloody hell it’s happened! @ElliottGSpencer has made an honest man of m’col. Love and happiness to all!!”
Stephen tweeted about the wedding “Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.” He also wrote “Oh and @ElliottGSpencer and I had our vows witnessed by a mini Oscar Wilde. Because one should. #greencarnations”. Elliot re-tweeted Stephen and Hugh’s messages.
Previously, Stephen announced the engagement on Twitter writing that he had hoped to keep it a secret. “It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!”
Friends have overlooked the age gap because Stephen, who has documented issues with mental health including depression, is so happy with his new man. Congratulations!
