In the past, she used to work for one of the most respected antique dealers in the business, but she has since set up her own business so she can be more in control of her schedule and able to spend time with her loved ones as needed.
She Is Married to Eddie Redmayne
Many women are head over heels for The Theory of Everything star, but Bagshawe is the lucky woman who gets to go home to him every day.

Their wedding had a winter wonderland theme and took place on December 15, 2014. Interestingly, Hannah was late to the wedding, causing guests to worry that something had gone wrong. However, Redmayne claims he wasn’t troubled or surprised because he knows she was always late to everything.

During the afterparty, they began talking and soon realized that they had a lot of things in common. They became friends and kept in touch even after they went off to different universities. Hannah also served as his publicist. Given how much time they spent in each other’s company, it’s no surprise that the flames of romantic love sparked between them.
How Did They Become Lovers?

Yeah, it wasn’t “love at first sight” for this couple as they decided to take things a step further after being friends for over a decade.
