Anya Taylor-Joy and Malcolm McRae to marry during lavish Italian ceremony in front of 150 guests this weekend
The Queen’s Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy is marrying her musician fiancé Malcolm McRae in a lavish ceremony held in Italy this weekend, MailOnline can reveal.
The Netflix actress, who has also featured in dramas Peaky Blinders and Last Night In Soho, was rumoured to have tied the knot in July last year, but sources close to the couple have told they plan to wed on Sunday in front of just over 150 guests.
They were spotted looking at wedding venues in Venice earlier this year, including Palazzo Pisani-Moretta, a 15th century palace, and Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista di Venezia, a 14th century church.
Details of the ceremony have been kept under wraps, however the couple – who have been dating since May 2021 – have instructed firm The Wedding Boutique Italy to organise their nuptials.
The luxury event planners host weddings located across Italy, also including Amalfi Coast, Tuscany, Sicily and Lake Como, set in idyllic destinations including romantic castles and rustic farmhouses.

A source said: ‘Anya and Malcolm are incredibly private and wanted to ensure their wedding was kept away from prying eyes.
‘They both love Italy and always dreamed of tying the knot in a beautiful setting surrounded by their nearest and dearest.
‘There will be no expense spared and their guests are bound to have an incredible time.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for the couple for comment.
The wedding firm budgets for weddings costing over £250,000 and not only plan the nuptials but also design the entire experience.
Anya, 27, has rarely spoken about her relationship with Malcolm, 28, since they began dating, having been first spotted together in New York.
They have managed to maintain a healthy relationship despite living on opposite sides of the Atlantic, with Anya largely based in London, while Malcolm, who also acts as well as being in a band, lives in the US.
Their busy work schedules also make it difficult, as Anya spends weeks on end in filming locations, while Malcolm regularly tours for his music.

Speaking about their relationship to British Vogue in March 2022, Anya said: ‘I said to my partner the other day that he was my hobby.
‘I see reading as something that I have to do. He loved it because he’s the same.
‘I’ve finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading.
‘We’re basically 80 years old and seven at the same time and it works really well.’
Speaking about the distance, she added: ‘Yes, it is [hard], but it’s also kind of great because when you’re together you’re really valuing the time that you have.
‘Everyday mundane activities are so full of joy. I love going to the petrol station with him and filling up.’
Anya was born in Miami, Florida and moved to Buenos Aires as a toddler before relocating to London at the age of six ‘for political reasons’ with her parents, banker father Dennis – a Scot born in South America – and Spanish-English mother Jennifer who hails from Zambia.
Her role as orphaned chess prodigy Beth Harmon in the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit elevated her into one of the most in demand actresses in Hollywood, having bagged a Golden Globe for Best Actress and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie.
She received another Golden Globe nomination for her role in black comedy movie The Menu, starring alongside Nicholas Hoult and Ralph Fiennes, and is playing the lead in blockbuster action movie Furiosa, the prequel to 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.
