Eddie Redmayne's winter wonderland wedding

Eddie Redmayne's wife-to-be Hannah Bagshawe wants a winter wonderland theme at their nuptials.

The 32-year-old's engagement to Hannah Bagshawe was announced in May this year and they are planning a December ceremony.

Hannah has high hopes for a winter wonderland theme and hopes her actor beau can pull a few strings to make her dream come true.

"Hannah’s like: 'Well, you work at Pinewood studios - can’t you fix up some fake snow?'" he laughed to Mail Online.

It might seem a strange time of year to get married, but Eddie explained why they have picked the coldest season.

"Because Hannah and I and Hannah’s dad and my mom are all fans of the hymn In the Bleak Midwinter and wanted an excuse to sing that at a wedding," he smiled.

My Week with Marilyn star Eddie has landed the role of a lifetime as Stephen Hawking in biographical drama The Theory of Everything.

It means he could well score an Oscar nomination, and the star opened up about why the 72-year-old physicist inspires him so much.

"I love that he’s an icon of cool. His essence is complicated to distil because he has an extraordinary joy of life. He has a formidable brain obviously, but he’s also deeply human," Eddie gushed.

"There are moments of stubbornness; he’s not a saint either. Also, for me, above and beyond, he’s one of the funniest men I’ve ever met. He’s naughty and witty.

"Because we project so much onto him, he’s taken on a mythical, almost god-like quality that is iconic."
