Something in the way she moves...led them to the altar.

Dhani Harrison, the 33-year-old son of late Beatle George Harrison and George's second wife, Olivia, secretly tied the knot with Icelandic former model Sólveig Káradóttir over the weekend in his native Southern England.

And wouldn't you know it, Stella McCartney designed her dress!

Per the UK's Henley Standard, Harrison and his longtime girlfriend got hitched at Friar Park, the family's estate in Henley-on-Thames, which is approximately 40 miles west of London. Among the celebrity guests at the nuptials were surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr along with Tom Hanks and Clive Owen.

The bride reportedly wore a gown especially created for her by Sir Paul's fashion designer daughter, Stella.

After Harrison died in 2001 from lung cancer, Dhani helped finish his father's final album, Brainwashed, before striking out on his own as a musician, collaborating with the likes of Jakob Dylan and forming his own band thenewno2 and more recently Fistful of Mercy with Ben Harper.

Sólveig, who goes by "Sola," started modeling as a teenager before becoming a psychologist. She's the daughter of Kári Stefánsson, one of the founders of Icelandic biopharmaceutical firm, deCODE Genetics.

As it happens, Sólveig and her future mother-in-law also attended McCartney's wedding last October to Nancy Shevell.

She and Dhani currently reside in Los Angeles.
