Carey Mulligan 'ties the knot'

Carey Mulligan reportedly tied the knot in an intimate farm ceremony today.

The actress and Marcus Mumford, frontman of folk group Mumford & Sons, wed in front of approximately 100 guests at a farm in Somerset, England.

According to US Weekly, the couple - who got engaged in August of last year - welcomed celebrity friends including Sienna Miller, Colin Firth and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Carey and Marcus have kept details of their nuptials closely guarded, although it was reported earlier today that the couple enlisted British songstress Adele to perform at their special day.

British newspaper The Sun revealed that the chart-topping singer would be guest of honour at the event.

"Carey and Marcus are both huge fans of Adele and there will be millions of couples jealous that she is singing for them," a source told the publication.

"Adele has always wanted to work with Mumford & Sons so when Marcus asked her to play at his wedding she said yes. Adele has not been able to perform much at all since her throat op so it's a rare gig.

"It was meant to be a secret but the couple were so excited they've let it slip."

Carey and Marcus first met in Nashville, where Mumford & Sons were performing last year. Carey had only recently split from Hollywood star Shia LaBeouf.

It was previously reported the pair are eager to set up their marital home in a farmhouse in the southwest of England. Carey recently admitted she would happily give up her Hollywood career and become a housewife if she ever feels disillusioned with Hollywood.

"I'm not going to work for the sake of working," she said in an interview. "I'll work, if I'm extraordinarily lucky enough to continue having the same opportunities, but it will be based on whatever is there. If there's nothing around, then I'll go home and make carrot cake for a while."
