    Background: POP STAR LULU CHOSE TO MARRY MAURICE GIBBS OF THE BEE GEES TODAY (18 FEBRUARY) IN THE PARISH CHURCH OF ST JAMES, GERRARD'S CROSS BECAUSE SHE WANTED A QUIET WEDDING BUT A THOUSAND FANS TURNED UP TO MAKE IT A NOISY AFFAIRS.

    THE BRIDEGROOM ARRIVED EARLY WITH HIS BROTHER, ROBIN, A FELLOW BEE GEE, WHO WAS BEST MAN. THEN CAME FOUR CHILDREN, TWO PAGES AND TWO BRIDESMAIDS, IN TRADITIONAL SCOTTISH DRESS.

    WHEN LULU'S ROLLS ROYCE APPEARED 20 MINUTES LATE, THE CROWD'S CHEERS SHOWED THEY DIDN'T MIND WAITING. SHE WORE A WHITE FULL-LENGTH MOIRE COAT WITH ATTRACTIVE FROG-FASTENING AND A MINK-TRIMMED HOOD WITH A MATCHING MINI-DRESS AND BOOTS. THE GROOM WORE WHITE, TOO; WITH HIS WHITE SUIT AND BOOTS, HE WORE A DARK BLUE SHIRT AND TIE.

    POLICEMEN STRUGGLED CHEERFULLY TO KEEP BACK THE CROWD; THE INGENUITY OF MANY CAMERAMEN WAS TESTED AS THEY TRIED TO FILM THE SURROUNDED BRIDE AND GROOM WHO WERE HURRIED TO THE ROLLS ROYCE. LATER, THERE WAS A WEDDING RECEPTION IN LONDON JUST THE FAMILIES OF MR AND MRS MAURICE GIBBS; LULU WAS FORMERLY MARIE MCDONALD MCLAUGHLIN LAWRIE. THEY WILL ONLY HAVE A ONE-DAY HONEYMOON AS LULU CONTINUES HER TELEVISION SERIES AND PREPARATIONS FOR THE EUROVISION SONG CONTEST.
