“Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one,” Fry says on his Twitter feed. “Amazing.”

Well-wishers tweeted their congratulations on Sunday.

Fry announced his plans earlier this month to wed 27-year-old Spencer at the register office in Dereham, eastern England.

One of Britain‘s best known presenters, Fry first gained fame in the 1980s in a comedy duo with Hugh Laurie. He has also written novels and appeared in the film, “The Hobbit.”
