Rolling Stones guitarist to have three best men at forthcoming wedding
Ronnie Wood will be joined at the altar by Keith Richards and Rod Stewart when he gets married for the third time, it has been revealed.
As previously reported, Wood will marry Sally Humphreys next year. Newspaper reports suggest that The Rolling Stones guitarist will take the unusual step of having three best men on his big day with Keith Richards and Rod Stewart filling two of the three spots and one of Wood’s three sons filling the final slot.
“He has joked he wants “about five” best men but he is mainly looking at his mate Rod, bandmate Keith and one of his sons. If he can have them all, he will,” a source told the Sunday People.
The source also offered some insight into the ceremony itself, saying that a January date is looking likely. “Ronnie wants a New Year’s Day wedding. They are looking at the early days of January for what is available. He wants to start 2013 with a big party. Sally would be happy with a few close friends and family. Ronnie would love to invite everyone so they are going to have to meet somewhere in the middle. He loves a party. People are joking he’ll have 3,000 guests and she’ll have six. Sally won’t want a lot of fuss. She is hoping to wear a vintage 1950s dress with sentimental value.”
The wedding will come after Ronnie joins his Rolling Stones bandmates for two dates at the O2 Arena in London this month and two shows in New York in December. It was confirmed last week that one of the New York dates will be broadcast in the UKby Sky Box Office.
