Well, here's some great news to brighten up your afternoon: the list of May-December celebrity couples just increased by one. Only a couple of weeks after English comedian/actor/writer Stephen Fry announced his engagement on Twitter by way of an off-the-cuff response to The Sun story that originally broke the news, Stephen Fry is officially a married man. In the same manner that he confirmed his upcoming nuptials, the 57-year-old took to social media to announce his marriage to 27-year-old Elliott Spencer, sharing a photo of the newlywed couple that he captioned, "Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing." 

US Weekly reports that, as expected, the lovely couple said their "I dos" in Fry's hometown of Dereham, England. No word on whether the couple were actually granted their wish of exchanging vows in a private ceremony that was devoid of paparazzi. Hopefully that's the case, but it sounds like they at least succeeded with their plans to tie the knot in a simple setting at a civil office.

The Hobbit actor's marriage to Spencer, who also works as a writer, is his first. Oh, and far be it from Fry to pass up an opportunity to have a little fun. Judging by the photos below, there was at least one celebrity guest in attendance:

Congrats to the beautiful couple!
