    PRISCILLA MARY WHITE, BETTER KNOWN AS CILLA BLACK, THE 25-YEAR-OLD LIVERPOOL POP STAR, WAS MARRIED TO HER MANAGER BOBBY WILLIS TODAY (SATURDAY) IN A QUIET CEREMONY AT MARYLEBONE REGISTER OFFICE, LONDON.

    AUBURN-HAIRED CILLA ARRIVED AT THE REGISTER OFFICE THIS MORNING WEARING A RED VELVET DRESS. SHE CARRIED A POSY OF ANEMONES, AND SMILED AT THE CROWD OF WELL-WISHERS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS GATHERED OUTSIDE THE BUILDING.

    THE COUPLE MET SEVEN YEARS AGO, WHEN CILLA WAS WORKING AT A COFFEE BAR AND BOBBY WILLIS A BAKER. CILLA, NOW 25, SAID THEY HAD BEEN TRYING TO GET MARRIED FOR THE PAST YEAR BUT WORK KEPT INTERVENING.

    A SECOND WEDDING ON AN ELABORATE SCALE WITH OVER 100 GUESTS HAD BEEN PLANNED IN FIVE WEEKS TIME AT ST. MARY'S ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN GATEWAY, LIVERPOOL. HOWEVER, CANON EDWARD MURPHY, PARISH PRIEST AT ST. MARY'S, HAS SAID THAT HE CANNOT MARRY THE COUPLE.

    EVEN IF IT DID TAKE PLACE HE SAID, THE MARRIAGE WOULD REQUIRE SPECIAL ECCLESIASTICAL DISPENSATION.
