The former frontman for influential punk-mod act the Jam got engaged to Andrews, nearly 30 years his junior, in April this year, as reported by Spinner. The couple tied the knot in a low-key gathering with just a handful of guests, the Sun reported.
"Paul didn't want a public wedding," a source was quoted by the paper. "He and Hannah agreed to just invite a select few family and friends. They didn't want to make a big deal about it."
A backing singer, Andrews performed on Weller's 2008 album '22 Dreams' and his subsequent tour. His previous relationship, with partner Samantha Stock, ended just before Christmas 2008. Last month, Weller told the Sunday Times that he did not feel he had to defend the age gap.
Quoted at the Post Chronicle website, Weller said, "As far as I'm concerned, she could have been 34 or 44 -- I haven't got a thing about young chicks. I like all women. What can I say? I'm in love and that's that. We work, we're in love, and we compliment each other. She just fills a part of me. I've been in love before, but I've never felt as fulfilled as this."
Weller's 10th studio album, 'Wake Up the Nation,' was released in April and nominated for the 2010 Mercury Prize.
