Source: The Sun

Date: January 1980


Pop star Gilbert O'Sullivan hugs his Norwegian bride Aase Synnove...just for The Sun.


Only six guests attended the couple's marriage.  But now our millions of readers can share exclusively in their happy moment.


Gilbert, whose hits include "Matrimony" and "Alone Again (Naturally)", met air hostess Aase seven years ago at London's Heathrow Airport.


But the singer and songwriterdid not pop the question until New Year's Day.  The couple both 34 - wed on Wednesday at All Saints Roman Catholic Church at Hersham, Surrey, a few miles from Gilbert's 200,000 home in Weybridge.


His mum, Mrs. May Harknett, did not know about the marriage until an hour before the ceremony.


And there was no time for a honeymoon.  Aase was airborne again today in a Pan-Am jet heading for Los Angeles.


But the blonde bride intends to settle down as Mrs. O'Sullivan in a few months.
