Amid a sea of thinly-veiled April Fools you may have missed some real news: Anya Taylor-Joy revealed that she has been married for two years.

The 27-year-old and her partner Malcolm McRae chose the day in 2022 for a secret courthouse ceremony in New Orleans, before having a much-larger celebration in Venice, Italy last year.

Taylor-Joy shared a post to Instagram writing, “Two years ago, on April Fools, I secretly married my best friend in New Orleans. The magic of that day is ingrained in every cell of my being, forever. Happy second ( first ) anniversary my love… you’re the coolest N.B yes, those are anatomically correct heart cakes. Yes, I am the vampire Lestat.”

Alongside the caption she posted four photos from the event. The first of her walking through a rustic venue in her wedding gown, another of her flailing her arms to show off her long white veil, a shot of her and McRae under the veil with guest Cara Delevingne and then a close-up of the hyper-real heart-shaped cakes she mentions in her caption.

And in case you’re wondering, Lestat de Lioncourt is a fictional character from Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles, who is played by Tom Cruise in the on-screen version.

Meanwhile, McRae seconded his wife’s announcement with a post at the same time which reads, “I love you now and somehow I always have and somehow it will never end. Happy two year anniversary (yesterday), beautiful.”

He shared two different shots of the couple on the day, one where Taylor-Joy’s full hummingbird and crystal embroidered Dior gown, which features a square neckline and A-line skirt, can be seen in full, as well as video of the two.

Taylor-Joy has been a global ambassador for Dior, with its fashion designed by women’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri, and its makeup, led by image director of makeup Peter Philips, since October 2021. It came after she debuted several colourful looks from the house while promoting her thriller Last Night in Soho. No doubt the dress was the result of a close collaboration between herself and Grazia Chiuri.

The wedding announcement means the pair have been married much longer than was previously thought. In October last year, photos were released of a mega celebration in Italy that outlets purported to be their official wedding at the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta on Venice’s Grand Canal.

Taylor-Joy wore the very same taupe tulle gown and 150 guests were said to have descended on the day in Venice, including Delevingne, as well as Julia Garner, Aimee Carrero, Keleigh and Miles Teller and Nicholas Hoult.

The Dune: Part Two actor and fellow film star and more* band frontman McRae have been linked since May 2021. They are said to have met in New York, though Taylor-Joy resides largely in London, while he continues to live on the East Coast.

In March 2022 — just a month after they secretly married — Taylor-Joy spoke to British Vogue about being in a long-distance relationship. “Yes, it is [hard], but it’s also kind of great because when you’re together you’re really valuing the time that you have. Everyday mundane activities are so full of joy. I love going to the petrol station with him and filling up.”

The couple have been known to attend more glamorous events together however, such as the Golden Globes and are regulars on the Dior front row — naturally.

It seems there really is still such a thing as a well-kept secret in the age of social media.
