When the stars align
WHEN rock stars aren’t marrying models, they’re walking actors down the aisle. Marcus Mumford married The Great Gatsby/ An Education star Carey Mulligan ( both pictured) inside a barn in Somerset, in April. Guests included Sienna Miller, Jake Gyllenhaal and Colin Firth. Mumford politely declines to talk about his private life, but admits his rapid dive into the celebrity world has been ‘‘ mixed’’ and says, ‘‘ It’s not as bad as people think.’’
