Sir Ringo Starr’s son Zak Starkey has married his longtime partner Sharna Liguz.
The newlyweds, who have been together for almost two decades, walked down the aisle in a small ceremony attended by family and close friends at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood on Monday.
Beatles legend Sir Ringo, 81, is said to have given away 56-year-old Zak, also a drummer, while Sharna’s father did the same for her.
Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder and The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr were the best men, with the latter performing via Zoom.
The couple chose March 21 for their wedding because it fell on their daughter Luna Lee Lightnin’s first birthday.
The loving couple told US publication People: “After 18 years together, Luna’s umbilical cord has kind of tied the knot, but we wanted to make it official and share it with our friends and family in the US before doing the same in Jamaica and the UK do .’
Sharna, 37, stunned guests in a gorgeous Alexander McQueen dress, while Zak wore a summery yellow suit with a contrasting bold red shirt.
On Instagram, Zak thanked his guests for sharing their special day and experiencing “true party endurance.”
He captioned a picture of an invite: “Great to be with the tallest girl in the world. And to celebrate Luna’s #1 birthday. Thanks to everyone who came from near, far, far, abstract and online.
“Our dearest friends in the US – great to see you at our wedding and experience true party endurance. It feels great to be married to the woman I’ve loved for 18 years. (she)”
Sharna, an Australian artist and part of the musical duo Sshh with her new husband, wrote on her own page: “This super little affair happened to our next sweetheart on the day our beloved daughter was born.
“A double celebration of love life with all the blessings bestowed on us. So thankful for our family. Locked and loaded, ready to roll with love.’
Zak, the son of Maureen Starkey, Sir Ringo’s first wife, has been performing and recording with The Who since 1996 and was a member of Oasis between 2004 and 2008.
Sir Ringo, who attended the wedding with his wife Barbara Bach, also has son Jason, 54, and daughter Lee, 51, with Maureen.
