Ed and Cherry have been together for the past two years, however, they met way back at Thomas Mills High School in Framlingham.
According to Heatworld, it’s believed that Ed always had a thing for Cherry but when she left to go to university in the US, his passion for her died down a tad.
Last year Ed was asked if he thought his relationship with Cherry was marriage-worthy. He replied: ‘I’m pretty…yeah I feel pretty good about it’.
Oh, and Ed’s already admitted to ‘being inspired’ to write many of his songs by Cherry, such as Perfect. Bit cheesy.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
