Stephen Fry, an English actor, married Elliot Spencer in a private wedding on January 17, 2015. Fry and Spencer married in a private ceremony in Dereham, Norfolk, that was meticulously prepared.
The Wilde actor explained why they chose Dereham as their wedding location: “We chose it because it’s a tiny market town,” he said.
What made news, though, was the fact that the actor’s husband is 30 years his junior. Given their large age difference, the couple’s marriage was widely publicized. Stephen Fry and Elliott Spencer during a pre-Bafta event For the first time as a married pair

The couple desired a private wedding with no media attention or leaks. To that end, they purposefully leaked erroneous wedding information and a date in order to keep the reporters at bay.
The British comedian admitted to planning a covert wedding and deceiving the press with false information.
Linda, the amazing (registrar), programmed a bogus date onto the computer in case it was hacked or if the borough had a mole. It meant Elliot and I could be joined without the presence of photographers or journalists, which was fantastic.
The actor says the couple met at a friend’s house when he first realized Spencer was the one for him. Fry went on to say that he knew right away that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Spencer.
Because of the 30-year gap, their marriage and relationship have received a lot of criticism and contempt. This, however, is unimportant to the couple, who are much in love with one another.

For the first time in 2015, Spencer summed out his relationship with the Bafta presenter. He admitted, “I don’t care what other people think.” Stephen is my life’s love, and he is the light of my life. It’s been fantastic. We met three years ago at a house party after being introduced by mutual friends. After that, the rest is history.
Humor, according to the comic writer, is the key to their successful relationship. Fry’s significant other stated how happy they were to get married. He also stated that he intends to give up comedy in order to focus on his marriage and photography.
Despite their low-key approach to their relationship, the couple appears to make public appearances and share the occasional beautiful moment on social media. The actor and his husband attended Princess Eugenie’s royal wedding on October 12, 2018. Furthermore, the 63-year-old actor wished his wife a happy anniversary, referring to him as “the most marvelous and magical husband.”
Fry wished his partner a happy birthday on Twitter on May 1, 2020, with a cake adorned on a plate. According to the caption, Fry made the cake himself for the auspicious occasion.
