Hannah Bagshawe Wife of Eddie Redmayne

SHE IS...

A 32-year-old financial publicist

SHE DOES...

She worked at several investment banks including Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Societe Generale, before joining media company MergerMarket, where she worked for five years.

She holds a Master's degree in English Literature and French from the University of Edinburgh.

She reportedly picks out her own red carpet outfits and also has her say when it comes to her husband's awards ceremony togs - but only because he is colour blind.

HOW THEY MET

They first met in 2000 when the 33-year-old English actor was studying at Eton College in the UK.

Together with some other schoolmates, he was invited by a nearby girls' school, where Bagshawe was then studying for a charity fashion show.

Redmayne and Bagshawe became friends at an afterparty, where he thought she was "beautiful and very funny".

They remained friends for 12 years but only went on their first date in Florence, Italy, in 2012. He was taking a short break from shooting Les Miserables and had invited her along.

HOW THEY 
TIED THE KNOT

They got hitched at Babington House in Somerset, England, last December.

The top-secret winter wonderland-themed wedding came after they announced their engagement in June last year.

It went on smoothly save for a minor hiccup.

The bride, whom Redmayne told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres on her show "has never been on time for anything in her life", arrived 30 minutes later than she was supposed to.

They took off for their honeymoon in the Alps shortly after, but cut it short to attend the Golden Globe Awards in Los Angeles, where he took home Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama for his role in The Theory of Everything.

WHAT HE HAS SAID ABOUT HER

Famous or otherwise, Redmayne is not spared mundane husband duties.

He told E! News: "There was a moment yesterday where I was in rehearsal and my wife was calling me because our dishwasher broke down. So in the process of trying to focus on my craft, I was dealing with the blocked pipes."
