Everyone’s favourite pouty actress, Keira Knightley has tied the knot with her long term rocker boyfriend James Righton in the Hotel de Ville in the village Mazan in Provence. The British duo kept the service ultra low-key with only 11 guests present in the village town hall, including James' Klaxons bandmates. Opting for a simple strapless dress in a blush tulle and teaming it with a classic cream Chanel boucle jacket, Knightley was the very antithesis of an over-styled celebrity bride.

Keeping with the relaxed, bohemian vibe, Keira finished her look with peach coloured leather ballerinas and a simple garland of flowers in her hair. Dark shades added some glamour, but the chilled out, rock ‘n’ roll ceremony – some guests were dressed in jeans – has made us fall in love with the new Mrs Righton all over again. As for James he wore a navy suit and pale blue tie with some shades.
She was chauffered to the ceremony in a black Renault Clio and then after the 'I dos' she was spotted skipping hand in hand with her hubby. In contrast to the lavish, choreographed extravaganzas that we have become used to (hello, Kim Kardashian), Keira has provided a role model for brides who don’t go in for the bridezilla madness.
In the evening the newlyweds, who met through Ms Alexa Chung, continued the party at Keira’s Provencal retreat as suspected - the peaked roofs of a large marquee were photographed in her grounds. The farmhouse wedding reception is said to have been for 50 guests, including Sienna Miller and Mr Karl Lagerfeld. And while we can presume Keira will be making a costume change for the soiree (perhaps the Chanel jacket points to Karl Lagerfeld’s design involvement…), it may be her carefree look for her simple wedding that will provide the most enduring inspiration for brides to be.
Congratulations again to Keira and James! Check out the Daily Mail for pictures of the newly married couple, which we're not allowed to use here (boo) - and admire KK's style in the look below...
