Ronnie Wood and Sally Humphreys married on Friday in a secret ceremony.

The bride wore her mother’s simple wedding dress. For the groom, the only nod to his wild side was his bright pink socks.

The Rolling Stones guitarist, 65, made the 34-year-old theatre producer his third wife in a brief ceremony in the eighth-floor penthouse suite at the Dorchester hotel in central London.

Sally Humphreys looked every inch the blushing bride as she arrived at her wedding reception at The Dorchester on Friday in a traditional white gown with new husband Ronnie grinning in his navy suit clutching a packet of cigarettes.

The bride accessorized her three-quarter length sleeved off-white dress with a ruby red heart necklace and bright lipstick.

Her layered taffeta gown complimented her slim figure while Ronnie Wood looked dapper in his tailored suit with checked detail.

The low-key ceremony was attended by close family and friends and in a secret location.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, the couple was spotted leaving the ceremony looking blissfully happy together.

Ronnie Wood picked his former Faces bandmate Rod Stewart as his best man at the private celebration for family and friends.

Rod Stewart was accompanied by his wife Penny Lancaster, while Leah Wood, 34, Ronnie Wood’s daughter by second wife Jo was also in attendance.

Eldest son Jesse, 36, was joined by his pregnant Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton while younger son Tyrone, 29, was also there to watch his dad tie the knot.

Famous guests included Sir Paul McCartney accompanied by wife Nancy Shevell, who looked stunning in a green and fuchsia wrap around dress.

The pair left their reception around 8:30 p.m. with the bride looking demure in a salmon pink dress and tailored coat, the newlyweds treated onlookers to their first public kiss as man and wife.

After knowing Ronnie Wood for several years, Sally Humphreys has previously gushed about her romance with the Start Me Up performer.

But the pair kept everyone on their toes after telling fans they would marry in early 2013.

Sally Humphreys said: “Ronnie was married and then Ronnie wasn’t married. I have had boyfriends, then I didn’t have a boyfriend. It had to wait until everyone was clear. But I definitely feel like I have ended up in the right place.”

Ronnie Wood has been married twice before, firstly to Krissy Findlay – the mother of his son Jesse – from 1971 to 1978.

He split from his second wife Jo, 57, in 2008 after an alcohol-soaked affair with 21-year-old cocktail waitress Katia Ivanova.

Following that there was a liaison with Brazilian model Ana Araujo, with whom he split after growing tired of her obsession with fame and a short-lived fling with promotions girl Nicola Sargent, 25.

Ronnie Wood’s divorce from Jo, to whom he was married for 24 years, was finalized last year.

In the candid interview with the Evening Standard earlier this year, Sally Humphreys admitted that she’s not really a fan of the age difference between her and her husband-to-be.

She said: “There is an age gap. I would prefer it if there wasn’t but there is but maybe I’m a bit older and he’s a bit younger at heart.”

And putting the negative criticism from their naysayers to rest, Sally Humphreys said that she believes the gap of three decades will serve them well.


The Rolling Stones returned to the London stage on Sunday night in the first of five concerts to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood were joined by their original bass player Bill Wyman at the 02 Arena.

Music critics hailed the rockers’ return a success.

Reviews of the gig described the band as “still leading the pack” and “at the cutting edge of pop”.

“They have a combined age of 273, but the four Stones remain an extraordinary live proposition,” John Aizlewood wrote in the Evening Standard.

“Jagger, camp and louche, was a preening but energetic peacock; Richards was as cool as a man sporting a red hairband and turquoise jacket could possibly be; Ronnie Wood was a chirpy mascot and that ocean of serenity Charlie Watts showed the tiniest of drumkits can make the biggest noise,” he said.

Guest stars included Mick Taylor – was originally in the Stones from 1969 to 1974 – who played lead guitar on Midnight Rambler.

Mary J. Blige also duetted with Sir Mick Jagger on Give Me Shelter.

“It’s amazing that we’re still doing this, and it’s amazing that you’re still buying our records and coming to our shows,” the frontman said.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

Mick Jagger also joked about the controversial price of the concert’s tickets.

“How are you doing up in the cheap seats?” he asked fans in the upper rows.

“Except they’re not cheap seats, that’s the problem.”

The show began with a brief video tribute from stars including Sir Elton John, Iggy Pop and Johnny Depp.

The band played 23 songs including some of their rarely-played early numbers such as It’s All Over Now and their cover version of the Beatles’ I Wanna Be Your Man.

They also showed a video montage of their big influences such as Muddy Waters, Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash.

The Independent described Sir Mick Jagger as being “in good voice” and “impressively strident” in the opening song.

Reviewer Andy Gill was also positive about the guest appearances of Wyman, who he described as “stolid as ever” on It’s Only Rock’n’Roll and Honky Tonk Women, and Mick Taylor, whose “stinging lead lines” on Midnight Rambler combined well with the rest of the band.

“For seven minutes or so, the years fall away and it seems as if the group were still at the cutting edge of pop – something their two new numbers, sadly, never quite manage,” he said.

Writing in The Guardian, Alexis Petridis said the show was “liberally flecked with moments” which were “about more than mere nostalgia, where the band seems to suddenly hit its stride, when well-worn material comes alive”.

“Keith Richards’ Before They Make Me Run arrives with its screw-you swagger intact,” he added.

The band also played classics such as Paint It Black and Jumping Jack Flash, but they didn’t get to perform Satisfaction as they ran out of time.

Still, fans were happy with the performance.

“It was pretty special. It’s not very often you get to see something like that. It was incredible,” said one.

Another man who travelled from Australia for the concert said it was “amazing”.

“Mick Taylor… What a genius,” he added.

Music critic Neil McCormick said the music sounded as good as it did when he first started going to gigs in the early 1980s.

“They really did seem happy to be there,” he said.

“There were many moments when they went completely mad.”

The series of gigs marks 50 years since the band first appeared in a small London club determined to pay homage to the masters of American blues.

There will be one more concert in London on Thursday, followed by one in Brooklyn, New York, and two in Newark, New Jersey.
