The couple were first spotted together in 2015 via social media and later photographed together attending the 2016 ceremony for Jodie Foster’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
They also attended the 2017 Oscar Wilde Awards together.
Speaking to PEOPLE at the 2018 Golden Globes, where she was nominated for best performance by an actress for Outlander, Balfe revealed she was engaged.
She said: “It happened over the break. I’m very happy.”
The couple wed at St. Mary’s Church in Bruton, Somerset in August 2019.
She told The Irish Mirror: “I managed to squeeze it in on a weekend during production, but it was beautiful and I had all my close friends and family there.
“Once you are in a room full of people that you love and who love you, it’s just so special and fun. I just want to be happy and to try to stay sane.”
Balfe’s Outlander co-star, Sam Heughan attended the close-knit wedding ceremony.

Around the same weekend Balfe and McGill tied the knot, Heughan posted a photograph of himself in a very dapper grey suit with the caption “Remarkable weekend” accompanied with a wedding bell, champagne bottle and love heart emoji’s.
Fans took to the comments to gush over Heughan and share their happiness for Balfe.
One fan wrote: “Sam looks great in ANYthing ANYtime ANYwhere!!REEEEgardles.”
A second fan said: “Very dashing Sam.”
A third fan added: “Who am I to say, but I think she should have married you. You’re one in a million and so wonderful together. Keep standing tall – your passion and conviction in life (and acting) are an inspiration to so many people! Big hugs!!”
Balfe and McGill have managed to keep their relationship out of the spotlight and unfortunately, very little is known about the couple.
In a 2018 interview with Parade, Balfe addressed the Outlander fans who wanted Heughan and her to be together in real life.
She said: “There’s a small vocal group that really wanted it, which is just a testament to the characters that we portray, that the love story is so inspiring and so aspirational that people just really wanted to believe in it.
“And that’s a nice thing. But I think things are pretty clear now that I’m engaged to someone else. Everyone gets it now.”
