With the big day over there was opportunity for the national newspapers to snap the first photos of the newly-wed couple as they left via the back door, which appear in today’s newspapers. Both Cumberbatch and Hunter left in a blacked-out Land Rover whilst crowds looked on, followed by a high performance Mercedes-Benz.

It is unclear if the A-listers will be staying on the Island for their honeymoon or jet setting off to America. It is believed Cumberbatch has been on the Isle of Wight since at least Thursday.

It has been confirmed over the weekend that local firm Island Foods supplied the meat for the big day.

The marriage has been confirmed by agents, who said it was a ‘magical day’.
