Wearing a blue suit jacket, Michael was navigating a trolley weighed down with two huge suitcases and several large bags as Alicia followed behind, carrying just a miniature handbag.

Alien: Covenant star Michael, 40, proposed to his Ex Machina star girlfriend, 29, last month.

And the pair were flying out for their extravagant wedding celebrations, for which the entire group of guests are being put up in a five-star hotel at the groom’s expense.

The photogenic couple were first linked while shooting their romantic drama The Light Between Oceans.

Speaking about her excitement of playing the video game heroine, Alicia told Vanity Fair: “When I was asked to take on this role I got really excited—Lara Croft is a truly iconic character.

“She’s trying to carve out her place in the world and connect her future with her past. She also has a fantastic mix of traits—tough, smart, vulnerable, plus she’s kick ass!

“She is also uniquely different to other characters I have taken on previously. It’s a lot of fun trying to get into Lara’s head and the challenge of getting to grips with such a physical role is an element of this project that I find an absolute thrill,” she added.
