This year seems to be dedicated to celebrity weddings, as so far several of the most popular stars have decided it is time to take their love stories to the next level. Thus, joining Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, Johnny Weir and Victor Voronov, come Amanda Sheppard and Bryan Ferry who tied the knot earlier this month.
Although all celebrity couples have their own “je ne sais quoi”, there’s something about Amanda Sheppard and Bryan Ferry that sets them apart. Perhaps it has something to do with the not so small age discrepancy. Singer Bryan Ferry is 67 year – old with a ladies’ man reputation that precedes him by much. At the same time, his new lovely wife, Amanda Sheppard is just 29 year – old.
But, the two think that the age discrepancy won’t be an issue, in fact Bryan Ferry stated: “You never meet people your own age who aren’t married. Unless they are divorcees knocking about, that sort of thing”.
Amanda and Bryan tied the knot earlier this month, on January 4th at the exclusive Amanyara romantic hideaway resort in the Caribbean Islands of Turks and Caicos. Although a spokesman for Bryan Ferry, the Roxy Music star, mentioned the event was a “simple private ceremony”, some details leaked. For instance, Amanda Sheppard wore a white wedding dress by Lanvin, while the groom wore a dark blue suit from Anderson & Sheppard.
Another interesting aspect about these two is that they met back in 2009 through one of Bryan Ferry’s sons. In fact, the son said that Amanda was an ex-girlfriend. But Bryan feels lucky he met and managed to get such a younger girlfriend.
When they first started to go out together, back in 2009, a source declared: “They are a really lovely couple, but there’s not talk of marriage just yet. I don’t think Bryan’s that keen on getting married again”.
For Bryan Ferry the marriage with Amanda isn’t his first. He has previously been married with Lucy Helmore, for 21 years but they divorced in 2003. The musician also has four kids: Merlin, Tara, Isaac and Otis.
