DEF LEPPARD Bassist Ties The Knot

Sheffield Today is reporting that two members of multi-million-selling Sheffield band DEF LEPPARD have gotten hitched in a matter of weeks.

Bass player Rick Savage was the latest to get married — the bells having barely stopped ringing after band frontman Joe Elliott married his girlfriend Kristine at a star-studded bash in a castle in Ireland.

Decked out all in black, Rick, aged 43, tied the knot with 34-year-old Paige Zelazney in a more intimate register office ceremony at Sheffield Town Hall.

The couple followed that with a reception dinner at the London-born bride's favourite restaurant, the Blue Room Brasserie, in Woodseats.

LEPPARD guitarist Phil Collen flew in from his home in Los Angeles, with wife Anita, to give Paige away.

Today proud mum Sally Savage said Paige looked stunning in a black and silver dress and long silver train.

"We've got to be different, haven't we. We're not the ordinary run of the mill," she joked.

"It was a lovely ceremony. Everything went great. There were one or two personal friends there - it was not a big wedding."

She said the couple's sons Tyler, four, and Scott, two, were decked out in brown trousers and brown striped shirts. And Paige's 10-year-old daughter Jordan "was dressed to kill".

LEPPARD singer Joe flew in from Dublin with wife Christine, while band drummer Rick Allen was represented by his Stannington-based parents Jim and Cath Daly. Read more.
