Award-winning actress Carey Mulligan
and folk rock singer Marcus Mumford were married yesterday – by the
groom’s father in a converted barn on a working farm.

The
bride, 26, who won an Oscar nomination and a BAFTA for her role in An
Education, exchanged vows with the Mumford & Sons frontman in a
rustic-themed ceremony in the middle of the Somerset countryside.

Marcus’s father John, a vicar, conducted the service inside a barn at Stream Farm in Bridgwater.

The newlyweds, who have been engaged for a year, were joined by family and friends at the venue adorned with hay bales.

Eight bridesmaids attended Carey and were dressed in turquoise knee-length prom dresses with matching blue high-heels.

Among the 200 guests were actress Sienna Miller, Hollywood star Jake Gyllenhaal and Oscar-winner Colin Firth.

As
the couple emerged from a large marquee attached to a cowshed,
contemporary photographer Rankin fired off shots of the beaming bride.

She looked radiant in a full-length ivory plain backless dress with V-straps, thought to be a Versace design.

Earlier,
the groom, 25, was seen in Ray-Ban sunglasses driving himself to the
venue before a helicopter, believed to be carrying his father, landed in
a nearby field.

The party
was organised by Bentley’s Entertainment, the London-based firm behind
Petra Ecclestone’s lavish wedding in Italy last year.
