Ronnie Wood found the perfect way to round of one heck of a year: by marrying his girlfriend of six-months, Sally Humphreys.
The Rolling Stones guitarist wed Humphreys yesterday (21 December 2012) at an intimate civil ceremony at London's Dorchester Hotel. The wedding was attended by a few close friends and family, with Beatles (and now Nirvana) legend Paul McCartney and Rod Stewart turning up with their respective partners. Rod, who is Ronnie's former Faces bandmate, served as the best man for the occasion.
The couple went against more than one tradition during the nuptials, beginning when the newlyweds arrived at the Dorchester together in a black Mercedes, and continuing with Ronnie's choice of suit: a blue one. Also, hotels don't usually act as the most traditional of settings for a wedding either. However some traditions were met, particularly with Humphreys' white dress, which she had previously said belonged to her mother. "For anyone interested, I’m wearing my mum’s wedding dress," she said.
Sally had also said in the past that she wished there was less of an age gap between the couple, with a whopping 31 years separating them, but went on to add that it does not affect their relationship. "There is an age gap. I would prefer it if there wasn’t, but there is," she told The Daily Record, "but maybe I’m a bit older and he’s a bit younger at heart."
