Fistful of Mercy’s Dhani Harrison Gets Married in Secret Ceremony
Dhani Harrison, the son of late Beatles legend George Harrison and member of rock supergroup Fistful of Mercy, tied the knot to Icelandic former model Sólveig “Sola” Káradóttir during a secret ceremony over the weekend at Friar Park, his family’s estate in Henley-on-Thames, England, about 40 miles west of London.
A-listers on hand included surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr and actors Tom Hanks and Clive Owen. It is not known if any of Dhani’s Fistful of Mercy bandmates — including Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur — were in attendance.
While the wedding was considered a secret, rumors of the ceremony had been circulating on the Internet, with friends alluding to plans via various comments on Facebook.
The 33-year-old Harrison also plays in the band thenewno2s. The bride, who has retired from modeling, is now a psychologist. Her father is Kári Stefánsson, co-founder of the Icelandic pharmaceutical company deCODE Genetics.
The couple has been engaged since January and, perhaps not so surprisingly, the bride wore a dress created by Paul McCartney’s designer daughter, Stella. They currently reside in Los Angeles.
Fistful of Mercy’s only album, ‘As I Call You Down,’ was released in 2010. Thenewno2s plan to release their second album, ‘The Fear of Missing Out,’ later this year.
