Mumford & Sons singer Marcus Mumford tied the knot with actress Carey Mulligan (Drive, An Education) on a farm in Somerset England on Saturday, Us Weekly reports. The celebration included family and celebrity friends like Sienna Miller, Colin Firth, and Jake Gyllenhaal.  

The two got engaged last August after dating for just five months, although they had been childhood pen pals in London. Their reunion was cemented over pizza and music at a secret Mumford & Sons show in Nashville, Tennessee in February 2011.

The Daily Mail reports that they were married by Mumford's father, who is a vicar.

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
