Benedict Cumberbatch couldn't have picked a more romantic (or traditional) date to crush our hearts into a billion pieces get married. People reports that the Oscar-nominated actor and theater director Sophie Hunter were married in a Valentine's Day ceremony on the Isle of Wight in England. 

It is the first marriage for the two Brits, who announced their engagement in November with a notice in the Times. The couple are also expecting their first child.

Few details are known about the ceremony itself. The couple exchanged vows at the medieval St. Peter and St. Paul's Church in Mottistone (so pretty!) before heading to Mottistone Manor for a reception. They are said to have brought their own cake, flowers, and music for the occasion. 

We'll just fill in the blanks and assume that Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman was best man, and that ol' Cumberbabe photobombed everyone. At least, that's how we imagined our fantasy wedding to him going down. Sniff.
