Benedict Cumberbatch officiating friend's wedding in Ibiza

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be celebrating his birthday and Emmy Award nomination in Spain this weekend (19-21Jul13) after he was invited to officiate his friend's wedding in Ibiza.

The Star Trek Into Darkness hunk turned 37 on Friday (19Jul13), one day after he was nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his period drama Parade's End, and now he is capping off his eventful week by conducting his pal's civil ceremony off the coast of Valencia on Saturday (20Jul13).

He tells New York Magazine, "It's a very private, lovely thing to be asked to do. Of course, I'm going to make a joke after it, 'I do weddings. Next will be children's parties and bat mitzvahs,' if it goes well. It's a mainly Jewish and gay audience, so hopefully they will be lenient towards me."
