A source close to the Shape of You singer told The Sun: ‘It was very quiet – just Ed’s oldest school pals, limited family and the priest. There were only 40 people – so no Taylor Swift, record company executives or any royals or pop star pals.

‘He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them – just a tiny winter wedding.’

Although Ed hasn’t made an official announcement on his social media his fans have been quick to offer their congratulations.
