Former Boyzone singer Stephen Gately has "married" his long-term partner Andy Cowles in a private civil partnership ceremony in London
Stephen Gately, the former singer of boyband Boyzone, has married long-term partner Andy Cowles Sunday March 19th, 2006 in London. The 30-year-old singer had made an official commitment to Cowles, an Internet entrepreneur, three years ago in Las Vegas.
The private civil partnership ceremony was held at the Goring Hotel and attended by fellow Boyzone stars Keith Duffy and Shane Lynch. Sadly, the band's ex-manager Louis Walsh was unable to attend the ceremony because of illness. Sir Elton John who supposedly was among the guests did not attend as well.
