Congratulations are in order for British pop star Robbie Williams and the woman he credits with saving his life, his long-time love Ayda Field … because yesterday in a fairly intimate ceremony held at their mansion here in LA the couple got themselves married!! That’s right, the notorious playboy pop star finally settled down with the woman of his dreams. Robbie and Ayda got hitched, y’all!
She is the woman Robbie Williams credits with helping him conquer his well-publicised demons and ‘learn to love again’. And last night, the superstar singer reportedly confirmed his commitment to long-term girlfriend Ayda Field – who he playfully calls his ‘Swiss Army Knife’ – as they were married in an intimate ceremony in front of a handful of family and friends at his £13 million Beverly Hills mansion. Williams, 36, was so insistent on keeping the wedding venue secret that even the couple’s closest friends were uncertain of the details. In fact – there has still been no confirmation for the star’s spokespeople that the marriage has definitely went ahead, resulting is some very different reports today. While US magazine People has printed a quote from a source saying the wedding did go ahead and that it was ‘very beautiful and romantic’, The Sun claims the wedding is not actually going ahead until tomorrow. The Mirror has reported the wedding did go ahead and the celebrations were to a great extent organised by Williams’s mother. The newspaper has also claimed alcohol was banned throughout the celebrations. A friend of 31-year-old actress Ayda said: ‘The ‘save the date’ cards that went out two weeks ago only said it was a party to celebrate Robbie’s 20 years in showbusiness. ‘It was only in the last few days that news leaked out that it was going to be a wedding. Robbie is the happiest I have ever seen him. He says that until Ayda came along he didn’t know what it was like to be truly happy. He credits her with teaching him how to learn to laugh and love again.’
So much secrecy … sounds kinda unnecessary. I can appreciate that Robbie wanted to keep his wedding as quiet as possible so as not to draw too much attention but he’s not really well known here in the US at all … but he is an international pop star and, as is clearly evident, the interested media showed up to report on his nuptials none the less. After the jump, check out a couple photos of the brand new Mr. & Mrs. as they arrived at the reception portion of the evening after the couple were happily wed …
It’s funny … I never thought I’d see the day when Robbie Williams became a married man. He has been such a crazy cad for so long, I figured he was one of those guys destined to be a bachelor forever. I can’t say I’m the biggest Robbie Williams fan but I have been into his music since the very beginning. I remember the days when he was a member of the early 90′s boy band Take That and then followed his solo career which made him a HUGE international pop star. I’m so happy to hear that he finally found the woman to share his life with. Let’s send our love and congrats to Robbie and Ayda on a very happily ever after.
