Stephen Fry marries fiancé Elliott Spencer: 'We go into a room as two people, sign a book – and leave as one'

The actor, 57, only announced his engagement to the 27-year-old comic 11 days ago

Stephen Fry has married his fiancé, Elliott Spencer, announcing the completed nuptials on Twitter.

"Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing," he wrote just after 5 o'clock this afternoon, while posting a picture of the pair signing the register thought to be in a registry office in Dereham, Norfolk.

His 27-year-old groom was quick to retweet the image.

TV magician and hypnotist Derren Brown was one of the first to congratulate the pair.

Fry's former longtime co-star Hugh Laurie also sent his wishes to the happy couple.

The British actor, 57, only announced his engagement to the stand-up comic on 11 days ago, on the 6 January.

 

At the time he wrote on Twitter: "Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!"

Fry had been dating Spencer since last summer, and the news of their engagement came to light after a report in the Daily Mail.

After his initial announcement he thanked his Twitter followers for their support.
