Kate Winslet managed to get married to husband #3 right under the noses of almost everyone— including, reportedly, their own parents. When the news broke Thursday that the 37-year-old Oscar winner had married boyfriend Ned Rocknroll, little was known besides the fact that her two-time co-star Leonardo Dicaprio was the one to give her away.

And as more gushy details sprout up, it’s clear that the quaint ceremony was as precious as it was secret.

The couple, who had been dating for more than a year, were married earlier this month in New York’s Catskill Mountains in what sources told U.K.’s The Daily Mail was a “hippyish, country-chic” ceremony. They exchanged vows in a heated barn, which sources say was decorated with lanterns and jars filled with wildflowers. (Maybe they took cues from the equally hip, canoe-and-mason-jar nuptials of Amber Tamblyn and David Cross.)

The lucky dozen in attendance included Ned’s brother Jack, who was his best man, and Winslet’s two children, Joe and Mia. And even though their parents, nor Rocknroll’s uncle Richard Branson, were reportedly in attendance, the newlyweds broke the news on Skype, a source added.

And as if custom-made rings by British jeweler Charles Goode wasn’t enough, the bride and groom will have a little extra something to look forward to: a trip to space. According to The Telegraph, Richard Branson gifted the couple with two tickets aboard Virgin Galactic, to thank Winslet for rescuing his mother from a burning building during a 2011 vacation with the family on Necker Island.

The couple will be with some A-list company on the flight, including comedian Russell Brand and Ashton Kutcher.
