The Sk8er Boi singer and her Nickleback beau are now officially wed.

Reports surfaced on Saturday that Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger had tied the knot that night when in fact they didn't marry until Monday.


The Canadian rockers chose Canada Day, July 1, to celebrate their wedding in the South of France. More than being a nod to their native country, it is also the anniversary of when they started dating, so it is fitting that it be their wedding anniversary too.

The couple chose La Napoule, a medieval castle near Cannes, to host their big day. Celebrations are said to have been 'wild', carrying on into the early hours of Tuesday morning, with fireworks and plenty of music involved.

The bride, who is known for her rock'n'roll style, wore two dresses: one white and one black for the celebrations. The white gown was a billowing, boho number with a keyhole back and lace capped sleeves worn for a pre-wedding event.

Breaking with tradition, Avril wore a second dress for the ceremony, a black strapless Monique Lhuillier gown which she teamed with a sparkling jeweled headband to accessorise her long, straight hair.


Chad followed suit and wore an all black ensemble as well.

According to Hello! magazine the 'intimate and emotional candlelit ceremony' was part of 'a three-day celebration for 110 of their closes friends and family.'

Congratulations to Avril Lavigne and Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger!

The couple exchanged vows in the south of France, as revealed by Mike Heller, the CEO of the talent company that represents the Sk8er Boi singer.

Heller tweeted on Saturday morning: "I'm in the south of France about to see my little Rok star avril get married I am so happy to part of this special celebration."


He later added: 'No pictures will be sent since this is #avril wedding but I will tell you everyone is so excited.'

The 28-year-old singer previously spoken about her 'spectacular' wedding plans.

During a radio interview in America last April, the singer spoke of her desire for a themed-wedding and revealed how she would be wrapping lyrics from one of the songs she and her fiancé had written together around the wedding cake.

Chad proposed to Avril last August with a 14-carat diamond ring after just one month of dating.


This is Avril's second wedding, having previously been married to Sum 41 star Deryck Whibley, and Chad's first shot at married life.

We wish them the best!
