British actress Keira Knightley tied the knot last Saturday with singer James Righton, member of the rock band – The Klaxons. The couple who were engaged for over a year before their big day said “Oui!” to each other in a small ceremony in Southern France.
A little over a month ago, in an interview with Marie Claire magazine, Keira Knightley revealed that when she marries her fiancé James Righton, a low key affair is what both would prefer over a lavish wedding. And it seems like that dream came true for the couple with a simple and intimate ceremony in Mazen, a picturesque village in Southern France.
The wedding ceremony was celebrated in French. Keira Knightley and James Righton stood before ten to fifteen people from their respective families and Righton’s band as they said both, “Oui!” and “Yes!” to each other.
Keira Knightley’s simple and low-key wedding seemingly involved “something old.” Her wedding dress appeared to be strikingly similar to a white dress that she first wore in 2008 while on her way to attend the BAFTA awards.
However, a spokesperson from Chanel confirmed that everything Keira donned on her wedding day was specially created for her by Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel. That seems like a fitting treatment for the face of Chanel.
Whether her dress was old or new, Keira didn’t fail to mesmerize. Her short white dress paired with an ivory white jacket made Keira look like a blushing doll. With minimal jewelry and white ballet flats and a simple crown over her head, Keira was all set to begin a new phase of life as Mrs. Righton.
The groom, James Righton, on the other hand, decided to go with “something blue” in a navy blue suit with a baby blue neck tie.
The charming bride had tears of joy in her eyes at the end of the ceremony. As told by Mayor Aime Navello, the ceremony was indeed a very moving celebration that touched everyone gathered there.
The Knightley’s own a farmhouse in Mazen, where the rest of the wedding celebrations continued. The reception witnessed about 50 guests, among whom Karl Lagerfeld and Keira’s best friend, actress Sienna Miller were in attendance.
We really loved Keira’s effortless style and her desire for “the simple life”. We wish the couple a lifetime of happiness and never-ending love.
