As it turns out, Sir Ian McKellan officiated Patrick Stewart’s wedding. McKellan was on hand to marry the actor (and his pal) to his longtime girlfriend Sunny Ozell.

But McKellan was also the reason anyone knew about the wedding. “We have Ian to thank for letting the cat out of the bag in the first place,” Stewart told New York magazine. Clearly, the couple was trying to keep their ceremony a secret. However, Magneto made up for it by putting the media on the wrong scent. “I like to imagine hordes of paparazzi scouring Massachusetts and having a really miserable afternoon looking for signs of a wedding,” he explained. Luckily the paps didn’t find out the actual location of the ceremony, which took play at Lake Tahoe, and spoil the moment.

We are happy to see that everyone looks delighted and overjoyed to be a part of the service. And we are happy for Stewart and Ozell as well. Congrats!
