Start thinking of a cute couple name—Neryl? Youngah? (The options are not exactly limitless.)
It’s being reported that Neil Young and his girlfriend of many years, Daryl Hannah, married in a small ceremony in California over the weekend. Per The Guardian, the couple are said to have tied the knot surrounded by a select group of friends and family members in Atascadero, reportedly after another ceremony on Young’s yacht near the San Juan Islands, off the coast of Washington state, earlier in the week.
The notoriously private couple have yet to comment on their apparent wedded bliss, with the only source of insider confirmation coming from Mark Miller, a guitarist who’s frequently worked with Young in the past. “Congratulations to Daryl Hannah and Neil Young on their wedding today. May they have a long and happy relationship,” he wrote on Facebook, before clarifying he didn’t actually attend either ceremony. “I only knew about it because one of my friends attended the ceremony in Atascadero and announced it on his page.” As for Hannah, perhaps the cryptic Instagram of an owl she posted a few days ago can serve as some sort of pseudo-confirmation: “Someone’s watching over us .... love & only love,” she captioned it.
Despite dating for more than four years, neither Young nor Hannah have divulged much about their relationship. But Young recently sung the praises of his lady during an interview with Yahoo!, saying how much they enjoy the banalities of doing Pilates and water exercises together. (Awwww!) “We’re very lucky to have found each other,” he said at the time. “I’m eternally thankful for the opportunity to share my life with her, and she feels the same.”
No word yet if Young’s “Harvest Moon,” one of the most popular first-dance wedding songs, was played at either ceremony.
