U2’s Adam Clayton left the bachelor life behind this morning when he married Brazilian model girlfriend, Mariana de Carvalho, in a low key ceremony.

The 53-year-old bassist proposed to Mariana at Carnival in Brazil earlier this year and the couple were expected to wed in the south of France.

However they stole a march on everyone by tying the knot this morning in Dublin.

“Adam is delighted to confirm that he married Mariana de Carvalho today in Dublin," a publicist said this afternoon.

There was no sign of Bono, or drummer Larry Mullen at their nuptials which took place at a top secret location in Dublin city-centre at 11am this morning.

However the Edge, accompanied by his wife Morleigh Steinberg, did attend congratulating the couple after they took their vows.

The couple had been dating for four years.

On Monday, they attended the funeral of poets laureate Seamus Heaney together in Donnybrook Church.

Adam, 53, proposed to former model Mariana, earlier this year at the Carnival in Brazil.

Adam from Malahide, was once engaged to supermodel Naomi Campbell for a few brief months in 1994 but their relationship ended that same year.

In 2006, he was again engaged to Suzie Smith, a former assistant to band manger Paul McGuinness, but they split up in February 2007.

It is not known where the couple plan to honeymoon.

The couple are celebrating at a reception for 150 guests at a secret location.
