Love Bites? Well, not for Def Leppard lead guitarist Phil Collen.
The British rocker married costume designer Helen L. Simmons on the beach at Florida's Ritz-Carlton, Palm Beach resort in a sunset ceremony Friday.
"We've been looking for each other our entire lifetime," Collen tells PEOPLE. "To say we're ecstatic this day has finally come is putting it mildly. It could only be us for each other."
Guests included Collen's Def Leppard bandmates Rick Savage and Vivian Campbell, as well as Muay Thai champion and trainer Jean Carrillo, who served as best man.
