Cressida has previously spoken of her desire for a reserved wedding, and it appears that her wish has been granted.
A maximum of 30 people are currently allowed to attend weddings in England. It is not known how many guests were invited to the ceremony, but both come from large families that would quickly make up the numbers.

Who is Cressida Bona's new husband Harry Wentworth-Stanley?
Harry Wentworth-Stanley, deputy director of Savills Real Estate, is the son of Nick Wentworth-Stanley, a Debonair Old Etonian, and Clare, now the Marquiseur of Milford Haven, who won the title after their second marriage to Harry's stepfather, the Marquess of Milford Haven.
Before his relationship with his current wife became official, Harry, handsome and 6 feet 4 inches tall, was considered one of the most suitable bachelors in London.
He inherited his looks from his mother Clare, a beauty who is still stunning at 54. There was a brother, James, four years older than him, and a younger sister, Louisa. When Harry was a child, his mother and father divorced. In 1997, Clare George married Marquess of Milford Haven, a queen cousin who was divorced herself with two children.
The family settled in Great Trippetts, a 1,000 acre estate in the Sussex Downs. For a while life was perfect. Clare had good relationships with her former husband Nick Wentworth-Stanley, who married Dutch beauty Millie Brenninkmeyer, with whom he had three other children.
Shortly before Christmas 2006, the Marquess and Marchioness and their children stayed with Nick and his wife in Worcestershire. James, Harry's older brother, was recovering from a relatively minor surgery. The operation was a success, but James became very concerned in the days that followed.
One evening the family was gathered in the house when they heard a shot. They hurried outside and found James lying dead.
The family was shaken by the tragedy.
Clare was overwhelmed by her son's suicide. It was touching the then 17-year-old Harry who helped her. In an interview 18 months after James' death, she said: “For the sake of the other children, you have to set an example. If you are strong, it gives you permission to be strong. If you fall into pieces, they will.
The day after James' death, his brother Harry said his greatest fear was that it would destroy me and destroy everything else. I suddenly felt how important I was. "
The couple had a serious relationship when they were both students at Leeds University. The couple were known to their crowd – for reasons that are not entirely clear – as "watercress". The romance waned when he left for Argentina in 2011 after graduating for a year abroad.
Friends have previously said that Cressida wasn't all over Harry when another Harry – Prince Harry himself – chased her in the summer of 2012 and started a romance. There were concerts, rugby matches, ski trips and cozy nights at Kensington Palace.
However, the couple separated in 2014 after three years together.
The following year, Harry Wentworth-Stanley and Cressida were photographed on Valentine's Day, although their relationship became public and official in 2017.
In August last year, Harry suggested during a trip to the U.S. and the couple's smile in the Instagram announcement told followers everything they needed to know about their love for each other.
His father had three more children with his second wife, Mille Brenninkmeyer, while his mother, now Marchioness of Milford Haven, inherited two stepchildren in their marriage to the Queen's cousin, George Mountbatten.
Cressida, who appeared in this year's ITV drama White House Farm, announced her engagement to real estate agent Harry in August 2019. The couple met for the first time while studying at the university before reviving their romance in 2017.
In May, she hinted that her original wedding had to be postponed due to the current crisis and published a snapshot when she and Harry posed in costumes in front of an & # 39; Auto-Wed & # 39; machine.
Cressida shared the photo on Instagram and wished her boyfriend a happy birthday before commenting, "Well, if everything else fails, there's always Auto Wed …!" Happy birthday my heart. #One day. & # 39;
