Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has had a notoriously stormy relationship in the spotlight with his brother and former bandmate Liam, further evident this weekend when Liam was "too busy" to attend the wedding of his brother to Scottish publicist Sarah MacDonald at New Forest National Park.
The rocker paid GBP60,000 for exclusive access to the luxury Lime Wood Hotel and its 16 rooms inside the park, arriving by car on Friday ahead of the Saturday ceremony, where guests were entertained by a bagpiper and comedian Russell Brand. Jazz signer Jamie Cullum and model Sophie Dahl were married at the 13th Century estate in January 2010.
Gallagher wore a light-grey suit with white shirt and black tie, while MacDonald wore a full-length white dress with long sleeves - de riguer again following the Duchess of Cambridge's long-sleeved Grace Kelly-inspired Sarah Burton creation.
Younger brother Liam, whose Valentine's Day registry office wedding to British pop star Nicole Appleton in 2008 went off without Noel's attendance, is currently touring with new band Beady Eye. Liam has admitted the brothers don't see eye to eye and prefer not to speak to one another. They haven't spoken in two years and allegedly use Twitter to communicate.
Noel was previously married to interior designer Meg Matthews, with whom he has daughter Anais, 11. Their marriage ended after he met MacDonald at a party in Ibiza, Spain in June 2000. He has sons Rory,3, and eight-month-old Sonny with MacDonald.
