Ben Gillies getting married Silverchair drummer ties the knot Silverchair drummer Ben Gillies married Jakica Ivancevic in Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle last weekend Drummer Ben Gillies, providing the backbeat for Silverchair, married Jakica Ivancevic in Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle last weekend.

Silverchair lead vocalist Daniel Johns, accustomed to sharing the stage with his band mate, stood by the groom as one of two best men during the afternoon ceremony.

The service was conducted in the presence of family and friends, including fellow group member Chris Joannon.

The couple, who originally met at age 14 at TAFE, reconnected in July 2009. The drummer reportedly proposed by covering Jakica's bed with love notes and frangipani petals.

The couple is expected to honeymoon in Puerto Rice before Ben Gillies returns to Sydney to record Silverchair's sixth album.
