Ronnie Wood, 65, weds Sally Humphreys, 34, in secret ceremony… with Rod Stewart as best man

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

They had promised it would be a low-key affair – and Ronnie Wood and Sally Humphreys were true to their word as they married yesterday.

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 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 accessorised 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 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.

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

Rod was accompanied by his wife Penny Lancaster, while Leah Wood, 34, Ronnie’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 8.30pm 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 for several years, Sally 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.  She 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 has been married twice before, firstly to Krissy Findlay – the mother of his son Jesse – from 1971 to 1978.  Wood 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. His divorce from Jo, to whom he was married for 24 years, was finalised last year. In the candid interview with the Evening Standard earlier this year, Sally 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, Humphreys said that she believes the gap of three decades will serve them well.
