Adam Clayton - U2 star Adam Clayton weds

Rocker Adam Clayton married his long-term girlfriend Mariana Teixeira De Carvalho on Wednesday (04.09.13).
The U2 bassist, 53, tied the knot with the Brazilian model in a low-key ceremony at a registry office in Dublin, Ireland, at 11am.
Just 18 guests, including his fellow band member The Edge and his wife Morleigh Steinberg, attended the civil ceremony but Bono and drummer Larry Mullen were not present.
A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the news and told the Irish Independent newspaper: ''Adam is delighted to confirm that he married Mariana de Carvalho today in Dublin.''
Adam, who was briefly engaged to supermodel Naomi Campbell in 1994, popped the question to his girlfriend of four years during Carnival in Brazil in February and the couple are planning to celebrate their nuptials with a second ceremony and lavish reception in the south of France this weekend.
A source told the BBC that they would host a three-day party with more than 150 close friends and family.
Last year Adam's former personal assistant was sentenced to seven years in prison for the embezzlement of €2.8 million (£2.2 million) of his money.
Carol Hawkins was convicted on 181 counts of theft from the bassist's bank accounts over a four-year period.
