The Vikings actor continued: ‘Of course when things settle down we will have a proper celebration with our friends and family but for now – the love of my life, our dog yam, a yurt on a mountain top in the middle of nowhere sounded like the perfect beginning.

Ludwig, who played the role of Cato in The Hunger Games, called his new bride, ‘My wife, my best friend, the future mother of my children, my everything.’ 

Dear also took an introspective tone when speaking on their decision to tie the knot to open the new year.

‘This last year was filled with a lot of uncertainty and doubt but this was the easiest decision of my life. I think we all learned in some way or another to look inside ourselves and find what truly makes us happy,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you to 2020 for bringing this guy into my life. I will love you forever @alexanderludwig.

He added: ‘We’re over the moon… it’s been the one light at the end of this pretty crazy tunnel we’ve all been in. But it definitely does put things into perspective and makes it really easy to pull the trigger on something like this when you find that person that you just know is going to support you through and through.’
