Keira Knightley married keyboardist James Righton over the weekend in the beautiful South of France.
The pair got engaged in May 2012 after meeting through mutual pal Alexa Chung – exchanged vows shortly before midday in a low-key ceremony at the town hall in Mazan, 67 miles from Marseilles, before speeding back to her family’s nearby $5 million vineyard for their reception in a silver Renault Cli.
“It was a very moving ceremony,” an onlooker tells Us Weekly of the intimate affair, officiated by Mazan mayor Aime Navello. “Keira looked emotional during the whole thing. She cried when they exchanged their vows but was still smiling.”
Another eyewitness adds, “It was a 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, they didn’t make much noise.”
“It was amusing to see them being driven away in a battered old Renault Clio,” the onlooker continues. “The car certainly looked as though it had seen better days.”
The Anna Karenina star wore a custom-made short strapless dress, believed to have been created by Karl Lagerfeld, pale pink ballet flats, a cropped Chanel jacket and a delicate floral garland around her head.
Congrats to the happy couple!
