How did Caspar Jopling and Ellie Goulding meet?

Far from crossing paths on the celebrity-studded dating app Raya, Ellie and Caspar were actually introduced by a mutual friend (rumoured to be Princess Eugenie) in 2016.

Speaking of the first time they met, Ellie said, “It's not a particularly exciting story, sadly. It wasn't a love at first sight thing at all. We didn't fancy each other at all. We were just sat next to each other at dinner.”

In May of that year, the couple appeared to go Instagram official when Caspar posted some pictures of their romantic weekend, captioning the post, “Weekend of art, Ricky Gervais and stodgy mushroom pate.”

“I get to spend the rest of my life with this truly extraordinary and beautiful, beautiful person. No one has ever made me feel more full of life, knowledge, happiness, or love.

“Hope, passion, confidence, and more love. There is no one I have ever been more complete with and there is no one I will ever feel more complete with. I look forward to a lifetime of exploring the world together, crying with laughter at stupid jokes, chatting into the early hours of the morning about art, music, the world, and the future. I love you Elena.”

They were married just over a year later at a lavish ceremony at York Minster, attended by the likes of Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, their mother Sarah Ferguson, Sienna Miller, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, James Blunt and Sophie Wellesley and Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas.

Talk about posh, eh?

Who is Caspar Jopling related to?

It’s not what you know, but who you know, right? His uncle is well-known art dealer Jay Jopling, who founded the achingly cool White Cube Gallery in London’s Bermondsey. His immediate family all have double barrelled names – universal code for being well fancy. Mum Jayne Warde-Aldam remarried Charles Andrew Warde-Aldam in 1997, and his dad, the Hon Nicholas Jopling sits in the House of Lords as a member of the Conservative Party, like his father before him (and Caspar’s granddad, Thomas Michael Jopling).

Despite the fact they’re, well, proper rich, the Jopling’s are not quite royalty, although with British nobility, you never really know, do you? His parents have aristocratic ties and his mum and stepdad live in a Grade II listed building in Yorkshire called Frickley Hall, built around 1750.

They’re also in the same circles as a number of royals, including the aforementioned Beatrice and Eugenie, and Ellie performed at the wedding of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in 2011.
