If these reports are true, Benedict Cumberbatch will never have an excuse to forget his wedding anniversary because it will be Valentine’s Day.

Us Weekly reports that “The Imitation Game” star and his fiancee, Sophie Hunter, will get married on Saturday.

Sources tell the magazine that the two will tie the knot on the Isle of Wight in England. The actor and theater director announced their engagement in November with a notice in the Times of London.

The 38-year-old Cumberbatch, nominated for Best Actor for “Imitation Game,” told Us Weekly last year that he and Hunter planned a “private” wedding.

London’s Daily Mail reports that the wedding will take place in front of close friends and family on the sprawling grounds of a “period property.”

The Mirror in London reports that workmen were seen this week installing tents and a marquee on the grounds where the wedding will take place.

The two are also expecting their first child together.
