66-year old Bryan Ferry has a brand new 29-year old bride.
Ferry has decided to give marriage another shot, marrying Amanda Sheppard on January 4 at the beach resort of Amanyara on the Turks and Caicos Islands.
This is the second marriage for Ferry and the first for Sheppard. The pair have been dating since 2009 after he was introduced to the former fashion PR person by his son, Isaac. An insider told the Daily Telegraph that the relationship was kept hushed for quite awhile. “She used to date Isaac about five years ago. It was a fling rather than a full-on relationship and that would have been when she first met his dad, which is a little strange for Isaac I suppose. It’s a bit weird because there is such a huge age difference, but Amanda seems really happy with Bryan.
Bryan is aware and sensitive of the age gap but recently said “You never meet people your own age who aren’t married. Unless they are divorcees knocking about, that sort of thing.”
Ferry had been married to Lucy Helmore for 21 years. They have four sons together, Otis (29), Isaac (26), Tara (21) and Merlin (20).
