Ronnie Wood marries Sally Humphreys in secret ceremony
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.
