Take That Howard ties knot in private
OF HOME SS TOPLE S BABE
TAKE That hunk Howard Donald has married girlfriend Katie Halil in a private ceremony.
The 46-year-old chart topper has been dating the illustrator since 2010, but they are said to have met two years earlier while the band filmed their Christmas TV ad for Marks & Spencer.
The couple married on Friday in the grounds of a country house in Oxfordshire.
Donald’s two current bandmates Gary Barlow and Mark Owen are already married.
And former colleague Jason Orange – who left Take That last year – was also among the guests.
A spokesman for the band confirmed the wedding, adding: “Howard married Katie at a private ceremony for close family on January 2.”
Halil, who graduated in graphic art and design, has worked with Donald’s pals from the group by producing artwork for Owen’s solo releases and animating the video for Barlow’s Since I Saw You Last.
Donald was snapped in a purple jacket after the ceremony, which took place at Aynhoe Park – set in 250 acres of gardens designed by Capability Brown.
