Can you hear those wedding bells? Can you hear them Chiming loud as can be heralding in the nuptials of Ed Sheeran and his wife Cherry Seaborn? But hey can you also hear that other sound? Yes, it is the choking tears of countless fans who really thought maybe they might be able to sway his interest. I'll tell you right now those fans are cray because if you look at the relationship timeline of Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn you will see love has been waiting for this pair for quite some time.
Reports that the pair were secretly married in a super small and intimate family wedding over Christmas have set the internet alight. Ugh could you just imagine the cute AF acoustic music vibes going on at this event? Anyhow, the wedding allegedly took place in Seaborn and Sheeran's hometown, Suffolk, according to The Sun. Although it's not known precisely where the wedding took place, it is known that last year planning permission for a chapel on the grounds was denied, which scuppered any dreams of getting married in a tiny church of their very own. But planners be damned, it looks like the happy couple may well have got the low key event of their dreams — and it was a long time coming.
2002 (approx): The Pair Met
OK, so in true romance style, the pair met back in school at a super young age. Speaking to People, Sheeran explained: "I've known Cherry since I was 11". Ugh so Cupid basically drew back his bow right there and then, right? Well not so much, it was a while before musician Sheeran and the Wall-Street-working, hockey-playing Seaborn became an item.
2015: Taylor Swift's July 4 Party
So it was back in 2015 that the stars properly aligned. Basically Seaborn was busy earning crust working on Wall Street and Sheeran decided to ask his BFF Taylor Swift if he could ask Seaborn to her famous annual July 4 celebration. Sheeran spilled the beans to People:
"She worked on Wall Street in New York, and I had like six shows. It was around then, and we reconnected. I went on tour again, and then I went to Taylor's 4th of July party. I was texting, and she was like, 'I'm in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,' and I was like, 'So am I.' I kinda said to Taylor, 'Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?' The rest is history."
