London: Ronnie Wood married theatre producer Sally Humphreys, who is 31 years his junior, in a hush-hush ceremony with old pal and former bandmate Rod Stewart as his best man.
When asked beforehand how he was feeling, the 65-year-old Rolling Stone guitarist replied by saying: “Fantastic. It’s a great day.”
Humphreys, who has been dating the guitarist for just six months, said: “I’m really excited.”
“And for anyone interested I’m wearing my mum’s wedding dress,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
Close family and friends were all sworn to secrecy about the ceremony at the swanky Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, central London.
Humphreys, 34, looked radiant in her traditional white gown clutching a bouquet of pale roses, while Wood opted for a blue suit as they arrived in a black Mercedes at 3.30pm.
Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell were among the guests.
Humphreys had previously said that she and Wood had intended to wed early next year.
The rocker asked Humphreys’ parents for permission before he popped the question.
