Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay tied the knot with actor Ziggy Heath in a surprise ceremony on September 12. The actress, best known for playing Lady Sybil Crawley in the popular period drama, took to Instagram to share her excitement over the big day by posting a loved up picture of the two in a tight embrace.

She captioned the photo: “[Heart emoji] wins every time. A weekend of dreams. Small celebrations felt HUGE. And now what a birthday! X I love you.”

The actress looked breathtaking in a high-neck lace wedding dress that showed off a delicately embroidered bodice and elbow-length sleeves as well as a sweeping tulle skirt and matching veil. She topped it off with a stunning jewelled headband that held her hair up in a low bun. The black and white photo also saw her new-husband Ziggy in a patterned waistcoat and black trousers.

Commenters shared their excitement for the pair with one saying: “Congratulations on your wedding, beautiful gown, stunning bride”, while another gushed: “Goodness! Huge congratulations! You both look so lovely”.

Jessica also shared several photos from the day to her Instagram story adding the caption: “We did it 12.09.20”. The photos showed the newly weds in another sweet embrace inside the church where they presumably tied the knot as well as another where the pair were enjoying a kiss while standing on the platform of a classic red London bus.

And if the dress wasn’t enough to impress, then the elaborate wedding cakes definitely would have done with job with Jessica sharing a photo of the two pastel green and pink desserts on her story with the caption: “Our cake was devoured in seconds!! We are beyond happy!!” As it was her birthday as well, there were two cakes, one with two tiers and one with three.

The loved up pair met in 2017 on the set of BBC series Harlots and have been dating ever since. The show was another period piece where Jessica took on the role of Charlotte Wells and Ziggy played Sam Holland.
