Phoenix frontman Thomas Mars marries director Sofia Coppola

The couple have two children together

Thomas Mars, frontman of Phoenix, has married Sofia Coppola at a private ceremony at Plazzo Margherita, a villa in Bernalda, Italy owned by the Coppola family.

The pair have two children together, Romy, 5, and Cosima, 1 and first met when Coppola was working on the soundtrack to her 1999 film The Virgin Suicides.

Coppola was previously married to fellow director Spike Jonze, but they divorced in 2003. Jonze went on to have a relationship with Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Coppola was walked down the aisle and given away by her father Francis Ford Coppola, who directed The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. It’s rumoured that Coppola’s cousins, the actors Nicolas Cage and Jason Schwartzman were in attendance at the ceremony, alongside Johnny Depp and Star Wars head honcho George Lucas, reports People.

Coppola wore a lavender coloured dress for the ceremony, which was officiated by the mayor of Bernalda, Leonardo Chiruzzi.
