Keith Richards and Mick Jagger in Saint Tropez (1971)

Pictured here are Keith Richards and Mick Jagger at Jagger's wedding with Bianca Moreno in Saint Tropez back in 1971. Bianca was Jagger's first wife, the two married whilst she was pregnant with their daughter Jade. The wedding itself was a confusing embarrassment, between four different people claiming to be the "best man" and the last minute obstacles the couple faced, it's a wonder the wedding happened when it did at all. 

They found out, that under French Law, they needed to have a civil ceremony in the town hall before they could have their church ceremony. The town hall of course, was opened to the public which reporters took full advantage of. The paparazzi invasion was so intense the priest locked the church and Mick had to bang on the doors to be let into his own wedding in front of reporters. 

They also found out last minute they had to legally declare "what property they had in common" which wasn't as much as Bianca thought and she threatened to call the wedding off. It was later described as, “the shabbiest free-for-all in the history of both rock and marriage and skin-crawlingly embarrassing for all the key participants.”

Unsurprisingly, the Jagger and Moreno ended up divorcing in 1978, after spending 7-years raising their daughter together.
