The happy couple tied the knot last month in a ceremony both dressed in suits, which Newton shared on Instagram. In the snap, Gemma held her bouquet over her stomach.
The pop singer, popular for his music in the 2000s, is returning to Glastonbury Festival 2023 Acoustic Stage. He is also set to perform at a stately home at Melbourne Hall this summer.
Unusually for a rootsy singer-songwriter, Newton has a stage school background. After primary school, he attended the Italia Conti Academy in London before moving to The Academy Of Contemporary Music in Guildford.

His emergence in 2007 was a word-of-mouth phenomenon as he was famous for his wry asides and impromptu cover versions – anything from the SpongeBob SquarePants theme to Bohemian Rhapsody.
He spent 18 months on the road promoting his debut and intends to do the same for Rebuilt By Humans, beginning next month.
He said in 2009: ‘When people see me live, they understand what I’m trying to do,’ he says. ‘Once I’d signed a major record deal, I went on the road with James Morrison and Paolo Nutini, and those gigs paved the way for my first album…
‘Now I’m looking forward to doing it all again. It’s going to be me on stage by myself, but the show will be more visual this time. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve.’
