Avril Lavigne and Nickleback frontman Chad Kroeger got married in the most romantic spot in the world — the south of France, RumorFix has confirmed.
The Canadian couple got married on Monday — almost a year after they started dating — at the Chateau de la Napoule, a medieval castle near Cannes.
The candlelight ceremony was the highlight of a three-day celebration.
“I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests,” Avril, who wore a black tulle Monique Lhuillier gown, told HELLO!
Last year, after the rockers spent a week in Paris, Chad gave Avril a 14-carat diamond ring . “It was very natural. We were friends having a good time and then it just happened,” Avril told HELLO!.
A romantic Chad said, “It felt like fate was intervening and I was just being given this wake-up call: don’t let this one get away.”
“We hope to be together forever,” Avril added. “One day down the road we’ll have a family. I look forward to growing with Chad.”
