  • Description

    Heart transplant surgeon, Professor Christian Barnard, left Johannesburg today (Saturday) on a round the world honeymoon with his bride, 19 year old Barbara Zoellner. The couple was married during a closed ceremony in Johannesburg yesterday.

    Newsmen were forbidden from the ceremony. Only ten relatives and a dozen guests were on hand to see the surgeon and his teenage bride married.

    The ceremony was held at the home of the bride's father.... a wealthy Johannesburg industrialist. The wedding took place at midnight local time. At one o'clock the couple walked hand in hand in the gardens surrounding the house.

    A large crowd of wishers turned up at the airport to see the couple leave on their honeymoon. After spending a few days in Rome the couple will visit the United States, Norway, Lebanon and Switzerland before returning to South Africa next month to settle in Cape Town.
