Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn kept the wedding small and quiet

According to a report from The Sun’s Dan Wootton, Sheeran and Seaborn were married at their home in Suffolk, England in front of 40 friends and family members.

According to The Sun: “Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet — just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest. He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them — just a tiny winter wedding… Neither of them were that fussed about making a big deal about it.”

Sheeran has yet to comment on the marriage, nor are any details yet known about the guests in attendance, though many wonder if his One Direction pals or Taylor Swift were present.

The couple are reportedly planning a summer celebration that will include a larger guest list.

How long have Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn dated?

Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn have a long history, as they met in school when the singer was just 11 years old. They didn’t begin dating until 2015, when they reconnected. Their first date was at Swift’s Fourth of July party that year.

Sheeran had told PEOPLE at the time: “I went to Taylor’s 4th of July party. I was texting [Seaborn], and she was like, ‘I’m in Rhode Island at a 4th of July party,’ and I was like, ‘So am I.’ I kinda said to Taylor, ‘Can I invite one of my old schoolmates?’ The rest is history.”

Sheeran was smitten… and ‘inspired’

In 2017, Sheeran explained to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 Radio: “This has been the first time I’ve actually had the time to fall in love properly. I’ve probably had three days apart from her in the last year… but we’re very, very strong. I’ve never been happier. I’ve never been more comfortable. I’ve never been more inspired. I feel like everything’s fallen into place.”

In 2018, Sheeran revealed that the two were engaged, sharing on Instagram: “Got myself a fiancée just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well xx.”

Are Sheeran and Seaborn having kids soon?

The newlyweds plan to have children, but probably not so soon, as Sheeran explained in 2017: “I actually think the meaning of life is to start a family and pass on knowledge to them and be loved and be loving, so that is definitely on the cards.”

He added, “But not any time soon.”
