Anya Taylor-Joy is sharing a glimpse of her vampiric wedding cakes.

To celebrate two years of marriage with her musician husband, Malcolm McRae, the Dune: Part Two star, 27, posted intimate photos and video from her secret 2022 nuptials.

"Two years ago, on April Fools, I secretly married my best friend in New Orleans. The magic of that day is ingrained in every cell of my being, forever," she wrote on Instagram, before giving a sweet shout-out to McRae, 29. "Happy second ( first ) anniversary my love…you’re the coolest🫀."

"N.B yes, those are anatomically correct heart cakes. Yes, I am the vampire Lestat," she joked, referring to a photo featuring two small heart-like cakes displayed on a white plate on either side of a pool of blood-red-colored fruit syrup.

On her Instagram Story, Taylor-Joy shared a clip of herself and McRae crossing arms with each other as they took their first bite of the cakes.

Also within her grid carousel, the Peaky Blinders star included a photo of herself walking through an old cathedral in a tan wedding dress embellished with flowers and birds and a long, floor-sweeping veil. "???? beautifully embroidered with our love story by @dior," she noted of her bridal look in her Instagram caption.

Another image showed Taylor-Joy sitting on a couch alongside McRae, Cara Delevingne and another wedding guest, with the four playfully enshrouded in her veil. A short video clip also captured the bride showing off her dress in the candlelit church.

McRae marked the couple's wedding anniversary with an Instagram post of his own. "I love you now and somehow I always have and somehow it will never end. Happy two year anniversary (yesterday), beautiful," he wrote, alongside a pair of wedding photos and a clip of himself and Taylor-Joy chatting and kissing.

Following their quiet New Orleans nuptials, the couple s -

aid "I do" all over again on a grander scale with a second celebration at the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta in Venice last October. In photos obtained by theDaily Mail at the time, Taylor-Joy could be seen standing on a balcony at the venue wearing her custom Dior gown.

Among the celebrity guests who attended the wedding were Delevingne, Evan Ross, Miles Teller, Nicholas Hoult and Julia Garner.

To cap off the weekend-long affair, a source told PEOPLE that Taylor-Joy and McRae enjoyed a terrace brunch on Sunday at the St. Regis hotel, with sweeping views of the Grand Canal.

The pair first met at the March 2021 premiere of Taylor-Joy's acclaimed Netflix series The Queen's Gambit. Just days after, a clearly smitten McRae — who is a member of the band More — wrote an original song for The Menu star and shared clips of himself performing it onInstagram.

“I wrote this song for Anya two days after meeting her," he wrote in the post's caption. "It’s called ‘Really Want to See You Again.’ "

A year later, in March 2022, the two made one of their first public appearances together at the CAA Pre-Oscar Party in Los Angeles.

In an April 2023 interview withBritish Vogue, Taylor-Joy opened up about how she found her perfect match in McRae.

“I've finally found someone who will happily sit in silence with me reading," she 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," she continued. "We're basically 80 years old and 7 at the same time, and it works really well."
