Former Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher married his longtime girlfriend Sara Macdonald in a luxurious ceremony on Saturday.
The pair, who met 11 years ago in a nightclub in Ibiza, cemented their union during a lavish bash at the posh Lime Wood Hotel in Hampshire, south England.

According to reports, the guitarist paid $96,000 for the exclusive use of the hotel for the ceremony, for which he donned a grey suit and black tie.

Guests included Gallagher’s funnyman pal Russell Brand, and the wedding party was serenaded by bagpipes at the reception.

However the Don’t Look Back In Anger hitmaker’s brother Liam was absent from the ceremony – the pair fell out in 2009 after Noel walked out of the band following a bust-up at a gig in France.

Gallagher and MacDonald have two children together, Donovan and Sonny. It is the star’s second marriage – he divorced Meg Mathews in 2001 after four years.
