Yesterday's ceremony, which was attended by U2 guitarist The Edge and his wife Morleigh Steinberg, took place in a registry office in Dublin's Grand Canal Street.Neither lead singer Bono nor drummer Larry Mullen were present at the civil ceremony but Mullen was seen arriving at a small celebration with Adam and his new bride at their plush 18th Century home in Rathfarnham later on.The happy couple posed for pictures in the sunshine at the registry office before they were whisked away, along with Mariana's family, in a small convoy of black people carriers.

Larry Mullen arrived at the house at about half one accompanied by his partner of more than 30 years, Ann Acheson.

Asked about the wedding, the drummer quipped: "Yeah I think marriage is a great -- just not ready for it myself."He said he had "no idea" how many people would be attending the celebration at Clayton's home but later said that Bono was going to be there along with his wife.

However, while Ali Hewson was later spotted leaving the bash, there was no sign of the usually high-profile singer.

“I had string of failed relationships and a string of excuses as to why my life wasn’t going well and a string of excuses why I wasn’t as good a musician as I used to be".

He said that after meeting Eric Clapton, he was convinced that he needed to go to rehab to overcome his issues.
