Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, has married her American boyfriend in a Las Vegas ceremony.

The 19-year-old's publicist issued a statement saying the TV presenter and DJ had wed singer Max Drummey, 23, of indie band Chester French, last week.

Geldof, whose mother was the late Paula Yates, said the marriage had the "full support of their family".

The relationship is reported to have developed in July when Drummey played at a festival Geldof presented.

However, the pair said they first met two years ago.

'No publicity'

Geldof married Drummey, a Harvard anthropology graduate, in a low-key ceremony in Las Vegas while they were on holiday in the US.

Chester French played at the ITV iTunes festival in London this summer, which Geldof co-presented.

"Peaches and Max did not want unnecessary publicity, but following growing media speculation, have decided to set out the facts," a statement issued by Geldof's publicist said.

It added that Geldof's father had been told of the wedding shortly before it took place and had given the union his blessing despite not being able to walk his daughter down the aisle.
