As if we couldn't be happier for Stephen Fry and his recent union, the actor has now shared a few snaps from his big day too. 

PICTURES: STEPHEN FRY'S WEDDING

The couple spent their first day as newlyweds watching the snooker, as documented by Fry via twitter, and eating cake. Sounds like a pretty great combination, in our book!

The pair were married on Saturday 17 January in Norfolk, two weeks after their engagement was revealed.

We love their non-traditional cake choice, but more so the green carnations they both wore - a nod to literary great Oscar Wilde.

Congratulations to Stephen Fry! The actor tied the knot on Saturday, making his union to his partner Elliott Spencer official. 

2015'S MOST ANTICIPATED CELEB-WEDDINGS

The 57-year-old comedian and his 27-year-old partner shared their happy news via Twitter, sharing a picture of them singing the documents, and overseen by a miniature version of Oscar Wilde:

 "Oh and @ElliottGSpencer and I had our vows witnessed by a mini Oscar Wilde. Because one should. #greencarnations," wrote Fry.

Naturally, the congratulations came flooding in.

HOW TO FAKE IT AS AN A-LIST GROOM  

Actor Hugh Laurie - Stephen's long-time friend and collaborator - was among the first to offer his congratulations.

He tweeted: "Bloody hell it's happened! @ElliottGSpencer has made an honest man of m'col. Love and happiness to all!!"

Married life seems to suit the couple, as Fry tweeted later on: "When your better half lets you watch the @bbcsnooker you know that marriage is a fine thing." Aww!

Actor and comedian Stephen Fry has announced that he is set to marry.

Rumours of his upcoming wedding to his 27-year-old lover, Elliott Spencer, made their way across a number of newspaper titles spurring on the QI presenter to turn to Twitter to confirm the news.

WHAT DOES 'GIVING NOTICE' MEAN?

"Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I'm very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance! 'Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations. Deeply touched xxx"

The couple were first pictured together in November last year, but have no doubt been together longer.

Elliott, a young stand-up comic, is credited by friends and family for bringing Fry back to life. The star suffers from bipolar disorder and revealed in 2012 just how challenging his struggle with depression has been. He even admitted to attempting to commit suicide.

CELEBRITY CIVIL PARTNERSHIPS

A spokesperson for Fry told MailOnline: "Stephen Fry is very happy and proud to say that he has set the wheels in motion for a wedding sometime in the future but no date has been set due to a busy work schedule."

The couple must have become engaged just before Christmas and have given formal notice at a registry office in Dereham, Norfolk, on December 23. Perhaps they were inspired by Sir Elton John's lovely nuptials which took place the week before that?

We couldn't be more pleased for the couple! Congratulations Stephen and Elliott!
