‘Star Trek’ Star Alice Eve Marries High School Sweetheart in London

The New Year is considered the time for people to turn the page into a new chapter of their lives as they say goodbye to the previous year. For Alice Eve, she celebrated New Year with a wedding ring set on her finger.

In a quiet ceremony on New Year’s Eve, the “Star Trek” actress married her high school sweetheart Alex Cowper-Smith at the Brompton Oratory in London. Photos of the wedding showed Eve wearing a white lace wedding dress with a white fur-trimmed hooded cape. Cowper-Smith, on the other hand, looked dashing in his black tuxedo with matching bow tie.


After their wedding ceremony, the newlyweds headed to their reception at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park. As per regular Londoners, the couple opted to ride in a white cab.

Though the wedding is deemed to be “relatively low-key,” the guest list is still quite amazing. Among them is ‘60s model and close family friend Twiggy, who was accompanied by her husband Leigh Lawson and some of their relatives. Also included in the guest list is businessman and advertising tycoon Charles Saatchi, who was with his girlfriend, fashion designer Trinny Woodall.

Eve and Cowper-Smith met and dated as teenagers while they were in Westminster School in London. They split up briefly, and Eve started dating a classmate in Oxford — British poet Adam O’Riordan. After her break up with O’Riordan in 2012, Eve eventually got back with Cowper-Smith. In August 2014, the couple announced their engagement.

Aside from casting Carol in “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the eldest and only daughter of actors Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan also starred in “Sex and the City 2” and “She’s Out of My League” in 2010. She also appeared in “Stage Beauty” (2004) and “Men in Black 3” (2012). For 2015, Eve will be starring in the film “Criminal” with Kevin Costner, Ryan Reynolds and Tommy Lee Jones.
