Secret weddings seem to be all the rage at the minute, and now The Dark Knight Rises and Inception star Tom Hardy can add his name to the list of celebrities who've got hitched in clandestine holy-matrimony.
Hardy married his girlfriend of 5 years, Charlotte Riley, during an intimate ceremony in the South of France on July 4th. The event, which took place at a picturesque 18th century castle, was a low-key affair in which only a handful of close friends and family were invited. A source at the wedding - who presumably couldn't sit on the secret any longer - explained to The Sun:
It was a beautiful, low-key day made even more special because they just had their closest friends and family around them. Tom’s son Louis played a key role during the ceremony. And they made certain to pick a stunning and private setting. There was nothing flash about the wedding, they always said they wanted it to be about the two of them and their family rather than any grand gesture.
So, even though technically Tom clearly didn't want our congratulations, let's send them his way anyway!
