“Downton Abbey” star Michelle Dockery has married her partner Jasper Waller-Bridge.
The happy news comes seven years after the death of Dockery’s late fiancé, Irish publicist John Dineen, at age 34 in 2015.
In pictures shared by multiple news outlets, Dockery can be seen clutching a bouquet of wildflowers and wearing a structured white satin Emilia Wickstead Josephine gown with a square neckline and long train as she exits a church in London after the ceremony.
The 41-year-old star emerged hand-in-hand with Waller-Bridge, the younger brother of Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge, from St Nicholas church in Chiswick, North London. The couple were surrounded by friends, family and well-wishers.
Jasper Waller-Bridge, 35, a film producer and talent agent, looked handsome in a navy blue suit as guests tossed flower petal confetti around the pair.
Several celebrities attended the wedding, including “Downton Abbey” creator Julian Fellowes, Lily James, Joanne Froggatt, Elizabeth McGovern, Hugh Bonneville, Lesley Manville, and Lesley Nicol.
“Fleabag” star Phoebe Waller-Bridge was amongst the group wearing a bright coal pants-suit by Etro, attending the wedding with her longtime boyfriend, playwright and filmmaker Martin McDonagh. The writer, producer, and actress also sparked news of her own as she appeared to debut a sparkling, oval-cut diamond ring on her left ring finger.
Dockery, who played Lady Mary Crawley in the period drama, became engaged to Waller-Bridge in January 2022 after reportedly meeting through mutual friends. The reception was held at the Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham.
The couple, who the Daily Mail reported have been together since 2019, have been seen together regularly since their engagement, from the April 2022 premiere of Netflix’s Anatomy of a Scandal to a 2022 outing at Wimbledon.
Dockery’s late fiancé, Irish publicist John Dineen, passed away in 2015 after a battle with cancer.
“We were engaged, and married at heart, and so I do consider myself a widow,” the “Godless” star told the Guardian in 2017.
“I don’t have the vocabulary to describe what it felt like … I’ve never been more committed to anything in my life than him. So at the time everything just shut down. Work, everything.”
