Marc & June were married 45 years ago today!



"Just five close friends were invited along - Mickey Finn and his girlfriend Sue Worth, Jeff Dexter (in a three-quarter length fur coat), and witnesses Alice Ormsby-Gore and Pete Sanders. After posing outside for a few photographs, Marc impishly delighted and with his hair flecked with confetti, June, vaguely art deco in her crocheted cloche hat, and the revellers celebrated with a meal and too many drinks. Sid and Phyllis Feld found out about Marcs marriage some time later, but theyd long known that their second son had a habit of doing things very much his own way."
From Bolan: The Rise and Fall of a 20th Century Superstar by Mark Paytress
