LONDON - British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has married his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn in a "tiny winter wedding", The Sun newspaper reported on Thursday.

"Ed got married a few days before Christmas. It was very quiet - just Ed's oldest school pals, limited family and the priest," an unnamed source told the tabloid.

The 28-year-old, one of the best-selling artists in the world, has known Seaborn since his childhood in Suffolk, eastern England.

They have reportedly been dating since 2015.

_The Sun _reported that there were only about 40 people at the ceremony at his estate in Suffolk.

"He wanted no fuss and he wanted it to be something entirely for them - a tiny winter wedding," the source said.

However, the couple are said to be planning a "festival-style party" in the summer.

Sheeran announced his engagement on Instagram in January 2018, saying: "We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well."

Sheeran's record label did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
