Singer Adele Adkins and fiancé Simon Konecki did marry in secret, it has been confirmed by a source close to the star on Thursday.
A guest at the wedding confirmed it was a ‘fabulous occasion’ and that the bride was dressed in ‘classic attire’.
The source told Mail Online: ‘They did get married, and I was present. It was a fabulous occasion.
‘Adele was dressed in a classic attire and Simon looked very smart and joyous.’
No further details have been released by the star who was pictured wearing a wedding band in London in July.
But it appears that the 24-year-old star was keen to seal her union to bearded Old Etonian Simon, 38, following a whirlwind romance with the divorcee.
It is the second marriage for entrepreneur Konecki who married fashion stylist Clary Fisher in 2004. The former couple have a daughter.
When he married Clary, a London College of Fashion graduate, he was a director of the EBS group, an investment holding company. He now runs his own eco-company White, hence the nickname ‘Swampy’ given to him by friends.
Grammy award-winning Adele was introduced to her new husband by singer Ed Sheeran during a difficult period, when she was recovering from surgery on her vocal cords.
Their backgrounds could not be more different. While Adele was raised by her single mother and went to an inner-city primary in Tottenham, Konecki was sent to Eton, where contemporaries included Tom Parker Bowles and Bear Grylls.
Konecki’s parents live in a £1 million waterfront house in Florida, and his sisters went to public school Roedean.
News of the star’s secret nuptials was first reported by U.S. magazine Life&Style who pictured the star on its cover wearing a black maxi dress revealing her baby bump in London last month with Simon.
‘She’s an old-fashioned girl and can’t wait to be part of a family unit. She just wants to focus on the baby and the man she loves.’
The pictures of Adele seen on the magazine cover are the first seen of the star since announcing her pregnancy in June via her website. There has been no updates to the site since then.
The 24-year-old enjoyed one of her last nights out before giving birth by having a quiet dinner at Eight Over Eight and window-shopping at Fulham Road’s antiques shops and bookstores.
‘Adele was relaxed and calm, and she and Simon looked really great together,’ an eyewitness tells Life & Style.
‘She seemed very, very happy. She absolutely does have a pregnancy glow.
Adele’s spokesman has not responded to MailOnline’s request for comment.
