The happy couple apparently had an intimate ceremony before Christmas.

Ed Sheeran married his longtime girlfriend Cherry Seaborn in a top secret ceremony, it has been revealed.

The private wedding was reportedly held at Ed's country estate just before Christmas.

None of Ed's celebrity friends were in attendance, with the guest-list limited to old school friends, close family and a priest.

Who is Cherry Seaborn?

Insiders close to the pair revealed that Ed and Cherry, 26, who met at school, had a 'no fuss' winter wedding.

"There were only 40 people – so no Taylor Swift , record company executives or any royals or popstar pals.

"He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them – just a tiny winter wedding," the insider told The Sun.

"Neither of them were that fussed about making a big deal about it. Cherry just wanted to get it out of the way without any problems or intrusions."

Rumours about a wedding began earlier this month, when Ed was seen wearing a new ring on his left hand at a concert.

The private pair also kept their engagement a secret, when Ed popped the question to his hockey player girlfriend back in December 2017.

The couple have known each other since attending school in Framlingham, Suffolk. However, their relationship ended when Cherry went to university in America.

However, they rekindled their romance in 2015, and Ed's close friend Taylor Swift threw them an anniversary party a year later.
