Mick Jagger Marries Bianca Macias

On May 12th, 1971, Mick Jagger and Bianca Macias tie the knot in a Roman Catholic ceremony at St. Anne’s Church in St. Tropez in the south of France.

Mick had been studying Catholicism with the pastor of St. Anne’s, Abbe Lucien Baud so they could have an altar wedding after the civil ceremony. With the sun shining on the Cote d’Azur, it all looked like everything was set for the perfect wedding, but this was The Rolling Stones…

In 1970, he began a relationship with Bianca De Macias, whom he married on 12 May 1971, in a Catholic ceremony in Saint-Tropez, France. In May 1978, she filed for divorce on the grounds of his adultery. Bianca later said "My marriage ended on my wedding day."

Bianca, his wife at the time, said they paid illicit visits to London, crawling around their Chelsea house on their hands and knees in an effort not to be spotted.

She later said in court papers during their 1980 divorce: "Throughout our married life, he and I literally lived out of a suitcase in a nomadic journey from one place to another in his quest to avoid income taxes.
