Rupert Friend is married

Rupert Friend secretly got married last month.

The 'Homeland' actor has revealed on Instagram he tied the knot with former Paralympic athlete Aimee Mullins on May 1 and the couple couldn't be happier together.

Sharing a photo or himself embracing his spouse on their wedding day on Instagram earlier this week, he wrote: "Today is the one-month anniversary of being happily married to @AimeeMullins #ilovemywife (sic)"

Aimee, 39, also shared a number of pictures from their big day, showcasing her stunning cap-sleeved Olivier Theyskens ivory gown.

On one picture she wrote: "Celebrating one beautiful month of being married to my best Friend! The 1st of May was a gorgeous rainy day with (The Most Reverend!) @eatkinsdiet as our Officiant (The Most Divine) @betonyvernon as our elopement in the field got moved into the compost shed. Our kind of magical day.(sic)"

Another was captioned: "Our rainy day wedding in a magical hobbit-y compost shed...vintage silk and muddy booties, a bespoke suit for Rupert with a vibrant blue-purple lining, and champagne all around"

Another picture, a close-up shot of them about to kiss, was simply captioned: Bliss. Officially."

And it seems the couple - who got engaged in December 2014 - had planned their wedding at short notice.

Aimee wrote: "Yayyyy for the marital compost shed!! And to having a gorgeous dress sent from the inimitable @oliviertheyskens on basically no notice. #elopement (sic)"

Despite being an intimate wedding attended by just a few people, things didn't go without a hitch.

Aimee - a double amputee and former champion sprinter - shared a picture of her stunning bouquet but admitted: "Wedding bouquet being made the night before at my favorite corner flower stand...too bad I forgot to bring it with me to the actual wedding. #nerves (sic)"

After the wedding, Rupert, 34, and Aimee enjoyed a honeymoon "hideaway" at an undisclosed location.

The actress posted a picture of a tortoise on Instagram and wrote: "This was the first guy to greet us at our honeymoon hideaway. We named him Carbonara."
