Benedict Cumberbatch has married his fiancée Sophie Hunter in a ceremony on the Isle of Wight.

The Sherlock actor tied the knot at a small parish church with close friends, family and co-stars from the BBC show in attendance, including Martin Freeman who plays Dr John Watson, and Andrew Scott, who plays Sherlock Holmes's arch-nemesis Moriarty.

In November, the 38-year-old actor announced his engagement to Hunter by posting an announcement in the classified section of The Times.

The announcement read: “The engagement is announced between Benedict, son of Wanda and Timothy Cumberbatch of London, and Sophie, daughter of Katharine Hunter of Edinburgh and Charles Hunter of London.”

Hunter is an actor and director who received the Samuel Beckett Award for writing and directing the avant-garde play The Terrific Electric in 2007.

Cumberbatch was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his role as the Second World War codebreaker Alan Turing in The Imitation Game.

The pair first met when they both appeared in the 2009 film Burlesque Fairytales.
