Mullins, a 39-year-old actress and model who is a double amputee and former champion sprinter, also posted several photos of their secret nuptials on social media. She shared that their ceremony took place on a “gorgeous rainy day,” causing the location to be changed from outdoors in a field to a “magical hobbit-y compost shed.”

“Our kind of magical day,” she wrote.

The bride wore a cap-sleeved ivory gown that fell just below her knees designed by Olivier Theyskens. She paired the dress with white booties and a lacy blusher veil.
