Cumberbatch, 38, who has been nominated for his depiction of World War II codebreaker Alan Turing in "The Imitation Game", wed theatre director Hunter, 36, at a ceremony attended by close friends and family on the Isle of Wight, off the south coast of England, according the Daily Telegraph.

Other guests at St Peter & St Paul Church were reported to include actors Tom Hiddleston and Martin Freeman.

Photographers snapped the couple leaving the ceremony in a classic Jaguar car, but many fans were left disappointed after waiting in the rain for a glimpse of the newlyweds.

The couple announced their engagement in The Times newspaper's births, deaths and marriages in November.

Cumberbatch is currently working on a new series of BBC's popular Sherlock adaptation.
