Bryan Ferry tied the knot with girlfriend of two years, Amanda Sheppard Wednesday, Jan. 4. 

The 66-year-old pop singer, who is 36 years Sheppard's senior, said "I do" during a beachfront ceremony at the Amanyara resort in Turks and Caicos, the Daily Mail reports

Sheppard, who wore a white Lanvin gown during the ceremony, and Ferry (in a dark blue Anderson & Sheppard suit) began dating in 2009, after she broke up with his son, Isaac. 

"The interesting thing is -- and I don't want to say the wrong thing in case I get into trouble with my girlfriend -- you never really meet people your own age who aren't married," Ferry told the Mail On Sunday's Live magazine last year.
