Ever since we heard surprising news that Kate Winslet had secretly married Ned Rocknroll, the nephew of Richard Branson, we've been dying to know every possible detail about their ceremony. Up until now, the only information that had been released was by Winslet's rep.
"I can confirm that Kate Winslet married Ned Rocknroll in NY earlier this month in a private ceremony attended by her two children and a very few friends and family. The couple had been engaged since the summer," the rep said.
Fortunately, we now have some new details to add to that. Perhaps the most "aww"-worthy of the bunch is the fact that Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly walked Winslet down the aisle. Winslet and DiCaprio have been friends since they filmed Titanic together (and they teamed up again for 2008's Revolutionary Road), so it's adorable that he was one of the few in attendance at the intimate ceremony.
Also there were Winslet's children Joe and Mia, as well as Rocknroll's brother Jack, who acted as his best man. The Sun reports that the newlyweds shared the news of their marriage with the rest of Rocknroll's family on Dec. 26 over Skype. "Ned rang [his stepbrothers Otto and Ludo] on Skype late that night and said, 'Would you like to speak to my wife?' and pulled a beaming, giggling Kate into the shot," a source reveals. "It was very sweet and they're happy."
The ceremony took place in the Catskill mountains, The Daily Mail has learned. Following in the footsteps of couples like Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds and David Cross and Amber Tamblyn, Winslet 37, and Rocknroll, 34, went the rustic route and were married in a heated barn. The venue was reportedly filled with colored lanterns and wild flowers put in jam jars.
As for their wedding bands, the couple reportedly exchanged platinum, diamond-encrusted rings during the ceremony.
"They had them specially made to order when they were in Hong Kong," a source tells The Sun. "Ned says a baby is definitely the plan for them next -- and they've had a lot of fun practicing."
