Annie Lennox has tied the knot for a third time after vowing she
would never wed again following two failed marriages.
The Scots singer wed South African charity boss Dr Mitch Besser in an intimate ceremony in London on Saturday.
The couple celebrated with 150 family members and friends, including celebrity guests actor Colin Firth and comedienne Ruby Wax, at a boat party on the River Thames.
The singer marked the occasion by posting a photograph of her wedding flowers on Twitter on Sunday, saying: "Wedding flowers: 15th September 2012".
Her management, XIX management, then confirmed the nuptials yesterday on behalf of the newlyweds. A spokesperson said: "On Saturday, 15th September, 2012, Annie Lennox and Dr Mitch Besser were married in London in a private ceremony with friends and family present."
Lennox met Dr Besser in 2009 after becoming involved in his charity Mothers2Mothers, which helps children and single mothers with Aids.
The charity worker was married with two teenage sons at the time and his ex-wife, Debra Jackson, filed for divorce last year after pictures emerged of him walking hand-in-hand with Lennox. However, it is understood that their marriage was experiencing difficulties before this.
Lennox's first marriage was to German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Ramen in 1984, which ended a year later.
In 1988, she married Israeli film and record producer Uri Frutmann and had two daughters with him - Lola and Tali. The marriage lasted 12 years and ended in 2000.
Following her second divorce, she vowed never to marry again.
