The couple tied the knot on England's Isle of Wight on Valentine's Day.

Benedict Cumberbatch had a very happy Valentine's Day. 

The 38-year-old Imitation Game star married theater director Sophie Hunter at St. Peter and St. Paul's Church on England's Isle of Wight on Saturday, The Telegraph reports.

The couple celebrated afterward with a reception at Mottistone Manor.

The pair had announced their engagement in a decidedly old-fashioned way, posting a classified ad in British newspaper The Times in November 2014. News broke in January that they are expecting their first child.

Cumberbatch and Hunter, 36, had been dating for a year prior to their engagement. This is the first marriage for both and is likely to disappoint the Oscar-nominated actor's legions of female fans.
