Nineties boyband star reveals he’s married partner 23 years after string of hit singles | The Sun
NINETIES pop fans will be thrilled to hear that boyband star Paul Marazzi has tied the knot with his long-term partner.
The A1 singer has been in a relationship with Nathalie for more than a decade and last weekend they became man and wife.
Paul – who found fame in the boyband alongside bandmates Ben Adams, Mark Read and Christian Ingebrigtsen – opted for a quiet ceremony with Nathalie.
In pictures shared on social media, the couple, who have two daughters, can be seen inside a registry office with just a small number of guests.
Nathalie looked stunning in a white, off-the-shoulder, long-sleeved dress and she carried a bouquet of pretty spring flowers.
Paul, meanwhile, kept it cool in a checked jacket, black trousers and an open-necked white shirt.

Paul's A1 bandmate Mark also chimed in, saying: "Congrats to u both, great pictures, thinking of u all on your special day xxx."
Christian wrote: "Congratulations!"
And the official A1 account also posted an emoji of champagne glasses, adding to the flurry of messages: "Best wishes!"
A1, a British-Norwegian pop group, formed in 1998.
But following a string of UK No1s and huge chart success in South East Asia, Paul quit the band in 2002.
The previous year, the group had experienced utter tragedy when four fans were trampled to death at a gig and signing in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.
Christian later said: "I think Paul stopped caring that much and withdrew a little bit more."
Speaking of the moment he discovered Paul had quit, Ben told viewers of The Big Reunion in 2014: "All I got was a text saying Paul had quit, it just seemed rude, we were great friends and brothers, it seemed like I know you need me, but f*** off.
"Paul leaving was the catalyst for breaking up, when Paul left that left shockwaves through everything."
A1 reunited for The Big Reunion – an ITV2 show that saw 90s pop groups reunite years after they had split.
But Paul declined to take part.
"He doesn't want to meet up to discuss it all, it's bizarre… it's odd," Ben added.
In 2017, however, Paul had a change of heart and decided to reunite with his bandmates for a 20th anniversary tour.
He said at a press conference: "It was something I was a little bit scared about before I met them and started working with them again.
"I was thinking about how much we have all changed.
"But it was just like riding a bike. Straight back in there. The songs were all there, the lyrics were there, the harmonies took a little bit of work but they're all there.
"It's been nice. It really has been nice."
