Actress Anya Taylor-Joy and her husband quietly tied the knot in a secret, candle-lit New Orleans ceremony on April Fool’s Day two years ago, the star announced on Instagram this week. 

People were under the impression that “The Queen’s Gambit” star and musician Malcolm McRae said their vows in Venice, Italy, in October 2023. 

However, Taylor-Joy took to Instagram Tuesday to wish McRae a happy second anniversary — and to reveal to fans that the couple actually held a secret ceremony in New Orleans in 2022. And she has the photos to prove it.  

Keeping the intimate details of the ceremony somewhat mysterious, Taylor-Joy shared only a select few photos from the Marigny wedding, which was held at Hotel Peter and Paul. 

In one photo, Taylor-Joy is pictured stepping forward with a bouquet in hand and a long white veil dragging down the wooden floors of the hotel’s church. She styled a Dior dress embroidered with designs of hummingbirds flying toward purple flowers. 

In another, Taylor-Joy sits on the steps of the church podium with a small group, including model Cara Delevingne, surrounded by tapered candles and flowers.

“Ethereal love,” Hotel Peter and Paul commented on Taylor-Joy’s post, “thank you for choosing our space for your special day.”

The photos also included one of the couple’s wedding cakes, two “anatomically correct” hearts in a pool of fake blood. Taylor-Joy shared a video on her Instagram story showing her and McRae biting into the hearts. 

She took the vampire-theme one step further by calling herself “the vampire Lestat,” a reference to “Interview with a Vampire” by New Orleans author Anne Rice. 

McRae also posted on Instagram Tuesday to wish his wife a happy anniversary.

“I love you now and somehow I always have and somehow it will never end,” McRae wrote in the caption. “Happy two year anniversary (yesterday), beautiful.”
