After melting our hearts as Sam in the 2003 cult-classic film Love Actually, Thomas Brodie-Sangster endeared himself to film fans across the globe. 

Following his appearance as Newt in The Maze Runner trilogy, Thomas quickly rose to Hollywood heartthrob status alongside his co-star Dylan O’Brien. As his group of fans continued to grow, many Thomas fans (including us) quickly became invested in the 34-year-old’s life off-screen, with many keeping a close eye on his romantic life. 

While they may have first crossed paths and on-screen love interests in Pistol, Thomas and St Trinian’s star Talulah Riley’s romance continued to blossom away from the set, with the pair celebrating their wedding in June 2024.

As the couple celebrate their life as newlyweds, we take a closer look at Thomas and Talulah’s love story.

Is Thomas Brodie-Sangster married? 

Thomas Brodie-Sangster is currently married to St Trinian’s star Talulah Riley. 

Celebrating their wedding in June 2024, the couple tied the knot in a charming ceremony at St George’s Church in Buntingford, England, surrounded by family and friends.

Commemorating their nuptials with a series of adorable photos, Talulah walked down the aisle in a satin Philipa Lepley gown and floor-length veil, while Thomas opted for a classic navy blazer, grey trousers, floral waistcoat, and white cravat.

News of the couple’s marriage comes less than one year after Thomas and Talulah confirmed their engagement, with Thomas simply captioning the announcement, “Love is all around.”

Thomas and Talulah first crossed paths in early 2021 after being cast as real-life couple Malcolm McLaren and Vivienne Westwood in the Sex Pistols biopic series Pistol. 

Shortly after filming began, the duo began to spark romance rumours after they were photographed strolling hand in hand around London in August 2021.

Despite keeping their romance on the down-low, the snaps of the couple together continued to get fans talking, with Thomas’ new romance seemingly confirming his rumoured split from ex-girlfriend Gzi Wisdom after two years together. 

While Thomas and Talulah kept the early days of their relationship out of the public eye, the pair were photographed heading to a romantic dinner date at London’s upscale KOL restaurant almost one year after their first on-set meeting – confirming that their romance was still going strong. 

One month later, Thomas and Talulah delighted fans when they made their red carpet debut together at the 2022 British Academy Film Awards Gala Dinner. Shortly after their first official outing together, Thomas and Talulah were frequently spotted sharing affectionate moments on multiple red carpets throughout the Pistol press tour.

Speaking on their relationship for the first time, Talulah told The Times, “We hadn’t really acknowledged each other as a romantic possibility or potential until the moment that we both did, and it was that same moment a number of months later after having worked together and been good friends.” 

Following the release of Pistol, Talulah made her romance with Thomas Instagram official, sharing a collection of the couple’s behind-the-scenes snaps with the caption, “bts w tbs 🖤🧷” 

After confirming their relationship, the couple was spotted at a number of red-carpet events, however, it was Thomas and Talulah’s appearance at the 2022 Wimbledon Tennis Tournament that quickly made headlines. 

“I usually describe myself as ‘stoic,’ but having seen these images I’m quite sure I can no longer make that claim,” Talulah wrote to Instagram, sharing a collection of hilarious candid paparazzi photos, adding, “In a previous era, these [photos] might also be titled: ‘Why not to take your girlfriend to a sporting event’.”
