Actor Keira Knightley has married Klaxons star James Righton, in a ceremony held in the south of France, reported BBC. The couple, who have been dating since 2011, wed in front of about 10 people in Mazan, Provence, close to where the bride’s family has a holiday home.
The short service was followed by a reception for family and friends, reported to have included Righton’s band mates and actor Sienna Miller.
“Keira was a charming bride, very modest and simple in her attitude, and so was James as a groom,” Mayor Aime Navello told the Daily Mail. “I got the impression that it was a very moving experience for both of them.”
The actor, who was Oscar-nominated for her performance in 2005’s Pride and Prejudice, is the daughter of playwright Sharman Macdonald and actor Will Knightley.
She rose to fame with the hit British movie Bend it like Beckham, becoming an international star in films including Love Actually and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
