Keira Knightley marries

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley and James Righton have tied the knot.

The 28-year-old actress and her musician partner James Righton tied the knot at the town hall in Mazan, which is 12 miles from Marseilles, France.

The pair are said to have cemented their love in front of 11 guests shortly before midday, with the ceremony said to have lasted around 30 minutes.

“It was not a long service," a source told People. "Keira looked beautiful. She wore a very pretty, very elegant dress."

The star is said to have wept as she and her new husband exchanged vows. She was seen skipping out of the town hall with James afterwards, with the pair using a Renault Clio to transport them to the reception.

Keira chose a simple knee-length strapless gown for the occasion, which boasted a tulle skirt. She paired it with a cropped jacket by Chanel, following reports the fashion house’s creative director Karl Lagerfeld would be creating her wedding dress. The star’s brunette locks were left loose and adorned with a headband of daises and she chose flat shoes.

“It was a very moving ceremony,” an insider told MailOnline. “Keira looked extremely moved by the whole thing - there were certainly tears of happiness.

“It was sunny day without a cloud in the sky. There were cheers of, ‘Well done, Keira,’ when she came out, but there were so few people present so they didn't make much noise.

“It was amusing to see them being driven away in a battered old Renault Clio - it certainly looked as though it had seen better days.”

The bridal party made their way to a £3 million country estate nearby, which is where the wedding will be celebrated. A marquee has been erected for the party, which will include a performance by Jamie’s band The Klaxons.

Around 50 people are thought to be gathering to attend the celebrations, among them designer Karl and actress Sienna Miller.

“It's a beautiful location for the wedding. They're very, very lucky. It's just the perfect time of year for it as well, they couldn't have picked a better weekend weather-wise,” a guest told MailOnline.

Keira and Jamie got engaged in May 2012 and it’s thought they are planning another wedding celebration in the UK.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

You'll have to make an emotional appeal to your boss. Unless things change, you might have to find another job. You're a very tolerant person, but you can't handle toxic behaviour. A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
