The X-Men star, Alan Cumming (who played Nightcrawler in the hit movie trilogy) has announced his that he, and boyfriend Grant Shaffer, were declared Civil Partners at a ceremony in London at the weekend.


Alan, who also starred as Boris Grishenko in the Bond-movie Goldeneye, was married at the Old Royal Naval College at Greenwich. The wedding was attended by nearly 150 guests, and included notable celebrities Neve Campbell, Sir Ian McKellen and Geri Halliwell.


Alan and Grant arrived at the ceremony by boat, with Alan wearing an oatmeal kilt to complement Grant's black pinstripe suit. Following the service, the couple skating on a nearby ice rink accompanied by the Queen classic, 'You're My Best Friend'.


We'd like to wish Alan and Grant all the best for the future.
