Keira Knightley Marries Rocker James Righton In South Of France
Keira Knightley is a married woman.
The English actress and her beau of more than two years James Righton tied the knot on Saturday in the south of France.
The Daily Mail is reporting that some 11 friends and family members, including Knightley’s mother Sharman MacDonald, attended the low-key ceremony, held at the town hall in Mazan.
The bride, 28, donned a strapless off-white tulle dress and a cropped Chanel jacket while her groom, 29, looked dapper in a navy blue suit and baby blue tie.
“It was a very moving ceremony. Keira looked extremely moved by the whole thing — there were certainly tears of happiness,” an onlooker told The Daily Mail.
A bigger gathering is expected to take place at the mother-of-the-bride’s country home near Provence.
The day before, Knightley and Righton, a member of the British rock group the Klaxons, were spotted entertaining guests at the multi-million dollar estate.
Knightley, who was previously linked to actor Rupert Friend, confirmed her engagement to Righton in May 2012 after more than one year of dating.
This is the first marriage for both.
