Singer Ed Sheeran marries sweetheart in secret ceremony

Ed Sheeran has married childhood sweetheart Cherry Seaborn in a top-secret ceremony, it has been revealed.

The private nuptials were reportedly held at Ed's country estate shortly before Christmas.

It's understood none of Ed's celebrity pals were in attendance, with the guest-list restricted to old school friends, close family, and a priest.

A source close to the pair told how Ed, 28, and Cherry, 26, who met at school, realised their dream of having 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," they added.

Rumours had begun swirling about the pair after Ed showed off a new ring on his left hand at a concert earlier this month.

The notoriously private pair also chose to keep their engagement to themselves when Ed popped the question to his hockey player girlfriend back in December 2017.

The Shape Of You singer broke the news to fans in a very sweet Instagram post weeks after the proposal took place.

"Got myself a fiancé just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx," gushed Ed.

The happy couple have known each other since attending school in Framlingham, Suffolk.

Ed admitted he fancied her even then, but their relationship didn't survive the long distance when Cherry went to university in America.

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

While Cherry keeps herself out of the spotlight, Ed gushes about his love for her every so often.

He revealed how his No.1 hit Perfect had been inspired by his long-term girlfriend.

"I like the situation I'm in at the moment, it's pretty great," he told Radio.com in October 2017.

And, when asked if Cherry was 'the one', Ed gushed: "Undoubtedly, undoubtedly."
