A source told the publication at the time: 'Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet – just Ed's oldest school pals, limited family and the priest.

'There were only 40 people – so no Taylor Swift, record company executives or any royals or pop star pals. He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them – just a tiny winter wedding.'

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.'
