Late last month Anya Taylor-Joy made a dramatic entrance to Australia by sparking engagement rumours when she stepped off a plane in Sydney to flash a ring to paparazzi from that finger. It seems we were all mistaken in assuming it was just an engagement ring with new reports suggesting she actually married her beau Malcolm McRae before she travelled.

“She bounded off the plane and then seemed to flash the ring at her driver before getting in the car,” an eyewitness told the Daily Mail at the time. “She was either showing off the ring or doing a dance move. Either way, she looked ecstatic.”

According to a report from Page Sixthe couple married in a courthouse ceremony in the United States. They reportedly plan to have a bigger wedding celebration when Taylor-Joy returns from Australia. Given she is an ambassador for Dior, we can’t wait to see the dress.

The award-winning actress is currently between Broken Hill in New South Wales where she is filming the next Mad Max film Furiosa and Sydney where she was captured walking the streets with McRae arm in arm at the weekend. The low-key couple layered up for the cold winter weather. Taylor-Joy wore a turtleneck sweater and jeans while her rockstar boyfriend paired a sweatshirt with a leather jacket (see the photo here).

The private couple have been dating for just over 12 months. They didn’t go ‘Instagram official’ until October last year and made their red carpet debut in February at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty.

They’re not the only couple to elope and have a second celebration. Just this week Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck also had a surprise wedding in Las Vegas with plans for a bigger reception in Georgia.

More to come.
