Benedict Cumberbatch Is Gay Wedding Officiant [Photos]
Benedict Cumberbatch officiated the gay wedding ceremony of his friends Seth Cummings and Rob Rinder in Ibiza last weekend.
Ivan Massow, who also attended the nuptials, posted a few photographs of the outdoor ceremony on Facebook. "The marriage of Seth Cummings to Rob Rinder conducted by the recently ordained Benedict Cumberbatch at the Hacienda Hotel Ibiza," Massow wrote.
Another picture the entrepreneur posted to his social media page over the wedding weekend featured the 37-year-old British actor out to lunch at El Chiringuito beach. Along with a few other members of the wedding party, Benedict posed in the center in just his bathing suit.
Cumberbatch, who donned a black suit with a simple white button down for his part in the wedding, previously joked about being an officiate. “It's a very private, lovely thing to be asked to do," he told The Sun. "Of course, I'm going to make a joke after it, 'I do weddings. Next will be children's parties and bat mitzvahs,' if it goes well. It's a mainly Jewish and gay audience, so hopefully they will be lenient towards me."
Benedict was recently nominated for and Emmy for his role in the BBC’s Parade’s End. He's currently filming the third season on Sherlock and will next be seen on the big screen in 12 Years a Slave with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender.
