MODEL and Paralympian Aimee Mullins continued to share images of her secret marriage to Homeland actor Rupert Friend this weekend, revealing that she wore a dress by fashion designer, and rumoured Raf Simons Dior replacement, Olivier Theyskens.
The newlyweds, who got married on May 1 but waited until this weekend to tell the world their happy news, both shared images of their intimate nuptials, which were attended by only two of their closest friends and took place in a "marital compost shed", according to Mullins.
"Yayyyy for the marital compost shed!!And to having a gorgeous dress sent from the inimitable @oliviertheykens on basically no notice #elopement," Mullins shared on her Instagram account.She captioned another post, which featured herself with her new husband and guests:"Our rainy-day wedding in a magical hobbit-y compost shed... vintage silk and muddy booties, a bespoke suit for Rupert with a vibrant blue-purple lining, and champagne all round."
