Vikings star Alexander Ludwig has married girlfriend Lauren Dear after they decided to elope.
Their big day was attended only by their dog Yam as they tied the knot ‘on a mountain top in the middle of nowhere’.
The pair hope to have another celebration with all their friends and family as soon as they are able to.
The actor shared a picture on Instagram of the couple shortly after getting married, gazing at each other with stunning snow covered peaks visible behind them.
Lauren wore a beautiful white wedding dress with a train and veil while the TV star wore a smart black suit and a white shirt.
Alexander said: ‘My wife, my best friend, the future mother of my children, my everything.
‘We decided to elope. It has been such a crazy year but it certainly put things into perspective.
‘Life is too short And I didn’t want to spend another day without calling this beautiful woman my wife.
‘Of course when things settle down we will have a proper celebration with our friends and family but for now- the love of my life, our dog yam, a yurt on a mountain top in the middle of nowhere sounded like the perfect beginning.’
Lauren shared the romantic snapshot on her Instagram and said: ‘This last year was filled with a lot of uncertainty and doubt but this was the easiest decision of my life.
‘I think we all learned in some way or another to look inside ourselves and find what truly makes us happy.
‘Thank you to 2020 for bringing this guy into my life. I will love you forever @alexanderludwig.
‘You continue to show me what life is truly about every day and how to be strong, resilient and courageous. I am a better person by your side.’
Fans congratulated the pair in the comments on Instagram, with one writing: ‘Amazing!! Many congratulations and blessings for your marriage!’
‘Yeah buddy! Nice backdrop for a wedding’ said another.
One comment read: ‘Beautiful! CONGRATULATIONS! may your lives together be blessed with Love and Laughter.’
Joking about his Vikings role, one fan posted: ‘True king of all norway bjorn ironside’.
Alexander and Lauren announced their engagement in November after going public with their relationship in September.
