'We go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one': Stephen Fry is married

Like his engagement announcement, Fry told the world of the marriage through a tweet.

BRITISH ACTOR STEPHEN Fry has announced that he has married his boyfriend.

The 57-year-old, who made his name in cult television shows “Blackadder” as well as “Jeeves and Wooster”, wed 27-year-old Elliot Spencer in a register office.

Fry, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for playing writer Oscar Wilde in the 1997 movie “Wilde”, also used Twitter earlier this month to confirm his engagement.

In his message on Saturday, he wrote: “Gosh. @ElliotGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.”

A photograph of the couple showed Fry in a grey suit with a multicoloured tie and Spencer in a black suit with a blue tie, both with matching flowers in their buttonholes.

The Twitter message gave no other details, but the pair had registered their intention to marry in Dereham in Norfolk, eastern England, near where Fry grew up.

Fry, who currently hosts the BBC panel show “QI”, gave his occupation as “actor” and Spencer was listed as a “writer” in official documents.

Confirming media reports of his engagement on January 6, Fry said: “I’m very, very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!”

Same-sex marriage became legal in England and Wales in March last year, and Scotland followed suit in December.
