Those of you who were hoping for a big, elaborate celeb wedding for Keira Knightley and Klaxons rocker James Righton might be a little disappointed, but we’re not—how could we when they look so blissed out together? The actress and her fiancé tied the knot after a year-long engagement in an intimate ceremony this past weekend. Congratulations, you two crazy kids!
According to People, Keira and James headed to the town hall in Mazan, a small village in Provence, France on Saturday to exchange their vows. “It was not a long service,” a witness said, “and very few people”—just 11, reports the Daily Mail. It was performed by the village mayor just before noon. Keira wore a strapless tulle tea-length dress and a Chanel jacket for the occasion, finishing off the look with nude flats and a wreath of daisies in her hair. After the ceremony, about 50 guests attended an afternoon garden luncheon and an evening party in honor of the couple’s nuptials.
Why did Keira and James pick Mazan as their wedding locale? Well, besides the fact that it’s absolutely gorgeous, Keira’s family has owned a small wine-growing farm in the town since 2010. Sounds lovely!
See those white peaks on the right hand side of this gorgeous pic? Those are tents at Keira’s family’s farm.
Congratulations again to the happy couple! May you have many happy years together.
