Man Utd star Harry Maguire gets married to Fern Hawkins in surprise low-key wedding

By Jeremy Armstrong

England star Harry Maguire was marrying his long term partner in a hush hush ceremony today.

The Manchester United captain left training at the club's Carrington training ground shortly after midday to head straight to the Registry Office ceremony, where fiancee Fern Hawkins was waiting for him.

It is understood guests were told the venue of Crewe Registry Office in a text message earlier today.

The couple, who met while they were teenagers more than 10 years ago, kept the details secret from all but their closest family and friends.

They will take their marriage vows again in France this summer at a romantic ceremony held at a chateau.

Only a small group of loved ones attended the ceremony this afternoon.

Maguire looked smart as he arrived shortly before 3pm.

He was joined by his parents, Zoe and Alan, who travelled from their home near Sheffield for the ceremony.

"It was a closely guarded secret to all but their closest family and friends," said a source.

"They wanted to be officially married in the UK before they head to France.

"That will be a fairytale wedding day for Fern." Harry's sister Daisy, 21, will be bridesmaid at the ceremony in Burgundy.

Harry's brothers Laurence, 25, and Joe, 30, will be there along with his England team mate Jordan Pickford, and Jordan's wife Megan Davison, who is also a bridesmaid.

Harry and Fern, both 29, met when they were just 18. He was part of Sheffield United's youth team.

Fern, who has a first-class degree in science and physiotherapy, later became a student and graduated in 2017.

The happy couple, engaged since 2018, are parents to Lillie Saint, three, and Piper Rose, born in May 2020.

Man Utd made Maguire the most expensive defender in the world when they signed him from Leicester City for £80m in 2019.
