Chart star Avril Lavigne poses with a bouquet of black roses as she marries rocker Chad Kroeger at their goth-themed wedding.

The pair tied the knot at a chateau near Cannes in southern France, with Avril wearing a black Monique Lhuillier gown for the big day.

The Complicated singer - marrying for the second time - told Hello! magazine: "I had goosebumps from head to toe and my eyes filled with tears. It's a moment I will never forget as long as I live."

Avril was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley for three years until she found love with Nickelback singer Chad.

She told the magazine: "My body was overtaken by emotion. I saw him and he was so calm and happy. He had a tear coming down and he wiped it away. I felt so good walking to him. It made me feel like a complete woman."

She said of the dark theme: "I wanted it to be over the top. I'm obsessed with castles and I love French decor and goth. I found this castle and it was perfect. I also wanted to make sure it was a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests."

Chad - who was marrying for the first time - proposed to Avril only a month into their relationship.

He said: "It felt like the stars had aligned. It felt like fate was intervening and I was being given this wake-up call: don't let this one get away. And I think she felt the same way and that's why I proposed in such a short time span - because we wanted to start our lives together."

More money for luxuries will become available. You may want to keep your good fortune a secret. Friends and relatives who are down on their luck could be resentful. Take this opportunity to go shopping for clothes, furniture and artwork. Go ahead and spend more money than usual. You've earned some indulgences. If you're looking for work, you could find it at a government agency, university or hospital. Being employed by a big bureaucracy will have unexpected benefits.More
