Rock superstar Tina Turner said her life was "a wonderful place to be" after marrying her German music producer boyfriend after 27 years.
The 73-year-old singer tied the knot with Erwin Bach in a ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich in Switzerland last weekend.
She told Hello! Magazine: "It's that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, 'Everything is good'.
"It's a wonderful place to be."
The star, who is a practising Buddhist, said she chose to have a wedding that was in "the American tradition I grew up with, tailoring it a little bit to me".
"I thought, 'I gotta have that, even if I never wear it'," she said.
"Then I thought, 'I know, that will be my wedding dress'."
