Benedict Cumberbatch and his pregnant wife Sophie Hunter are spending their first days of married life on the Isle of Wight, prompting speculation that they are enjoying a low-key honeymoon.

The couple, who married on Valentine’s Day, were spotted leaving The Sun Inn, Hulverstone on Sunday afternoon, where it is thought they enjoyed a long lunch.

Cumberbatch, 38, was dressed casually in a black leather jacket and flat cap, while Miss Hunter, 36, wore a knee-length beige coat, buttoned to the top.

Both wore dark glasses as they were escorted out of the 600-year-old pub at around 2.30pm on Sunday, the day after their wedding.

The wedding ceremony took place on Saturday at the 12th century St Peter & St Paul Church, near Brighstone, just two miles down the road from the Sun Inn.

Miss Hunter arrived at 3.20pm and was ushered into the church surrounded by security holding umbrellas, with her brown hair neatly tied up underneath her white veil.

Then, 40 minutes later, three loud cheers erupted from the church as the ceremony drew to a close, and at 4.15pm the couple left in a classic Jaguar.

The couple decided not to pose for pictures after the service, but went straight to the reception.

Among the guests was actor Andrew Scott, who plays Moriarty in Sherlock.

Fans had flocked to the island to catch a glimpse of the ceremony, but many were left disappointed.
As the couple left the church in a classic grey Jaguar, security officers parked a large white van in the way of the crowd of spectators.

This blocked the view of fans, many of whom had stood out in the rain for three hours in the hope of waving to the actor and his new wife.

Following the ceremony guests, thought to include fellow actor Tom Hiddleston, crossed the road for a reception at Mottistone Manor, a Grade II listed building owned by the National Trust.
