Jamie Dornan’s proposal to wife Amelia Warner as fans gush over wedding photograph

Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner returned to the city where their romance started as fans gush over a photograph of their stunning wedding.

The heartthrob star of Belfast and his film composer wife are in LA because they have a rule not to spend more than three weeks apart when working away from home.

But it is sure to bring back special memories for Amelia and the Fifty Shades of Gray star who married at Babington House in Somerset.

For LA is where their romance started and where Jamie proposed.

And new images on social media sites show the couple looking young and happy during the early days of their romance and on their wedding day, with Amelia wearing a vintage style dress and full-length veil.

Asked about how he and Amelia hooked up in 2010, Jamie explained the whole story to James Corden on the Late Late Show last year.

“I knew who she was as an actor,” he said about Amelia who starred in Lorna Doone before switching to music.

“I always fancied her and we were doing karaoke and a friend of ours came in and said ‘listen Amelia Warner is in a house party and she’s single’.

“I literally dropped the mic and was like, you know, run for the hills.”

That was the start of the romance and they became engaged in 2012 and married in 2013 after moving back to London.

“We met, we instantly got on great and chatted all night,” he explained.

“She was sat on the step of our friends’ house, not my friends by the way, they became very good friends, but at that time I didn’t know them.

“I just rocked up at this house and two and half, three years later, I proposed to her on the very steps that we met. Which was lovely.”

Jamie has always been clear that although he is a heartthrob with a legion of female fans after starring in Fifty Shades of Grey, he only has eyes for Amelia who was spotted on a beach with a large diamond engagement ring soon after he proposed.

At the time they met he and his famous friends, Eddie Redmayne, Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield, and Charlie Cox, were trying to break into Hollywood and he admits it was a pretty messy lifestyle.

But now they are both 39 and he has settled down with Amelia and their three daughters, Dulcie, Elva and Alberta, in the Cotswolds.

It’s a million miles away from Sunset Boulevard where Jamie recently posted a picture of his name in lights. Amelia has posted images from LACMA, Los Angeles County Museum of Art.

Speaking about his wife, Jamie says he tells her he loves her 10 times a day and previously told the Belfast Telegraph: “I was smitten with her from the start, I really was. I’m more in love with her today than I was at the start.”

But despite their strong marriage, both have been involved in other marriage proposals.

A young Amelia married Ballykissangel’s Colin Farrell in a non-legal ceremony in 2002 – but they ended the relationship four months later before he became a Hollywood star.

Jamie had a much-publicized romance with Keira Knightley which ended in 2005 and in 2015 he proposed to a fan on her boyfriend’s behalf during an appearance on Capital Breakfast radio.

A caller named Tom told Jamie his girlfriend of three years was a massive Fifty Shades of Gray fan and said: “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get the actor who plays Christian Gray to pop the question for me, if you wouldn’t mind?”

When Jamie asked the fan to be Tom’s wife she was so overwhelmed by the proposals she forgot to say yes until prompted.
