Stephen Fry Lives Out Married Life on Twitter

Screen Shot 2015-01-22 at 10.08.33Although the unconventional couple have encouraged many to pass comment on the age gap between Stephen Fry (57) and partner and Elliot Spencer (27), it seems that they are getting along with married life just fine, posting a series of intimate images and tweets.

This is what we love about Twitter, with the social platform giving us access to our beloved stars. Where many years ago we felt very much detached from such celebrities we are now provided with a window, seeing directly into their personal lives.

Marrying just 10 days after announcing their engagement the couple understandably wanted to share every moment with their followers, ensuring we were not left out of anything during this incredible juncture in their lives.

It seems that Twitter has played a big part in the couples relationship, with Stephen Fry in particular giving us a step-by-step update of their life as a married couple. Moments after the ceremony Fry tweeted the following:

“Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.”

Although very sweet we wonder how Elliot felt about Stephen being on his phone during the reception. The star also tweeted an image of the two signing the marriage certificate, accompanied by a doll of Oscar Wilde. With Fry having such an affinity with Wilde and his troubles as a gay man we felt the unusual witness to be a great touch.


The couple were congratulated by thousands over Twitter, with many famous faces illustrating their happiness for the QI quizmaster.

What do you think, were the series of tweets a bit too much?
