Avril Lavigne has spoken about getting married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger in a goth-themed wedding.
The pair tied the knot at a chateau near Cannes in the south of France. Lavigne wore a black Monique Lhuillier gown for the day and posed for pictures with a bouquet of black roses.
The 28-year-old singer told Hello! Magazine: "I had goosebumps from head to toe and my eyes filled with tears. It's a moment I will never forget as long as I live. My body was overtaken by emotion, I saw him and he was so calm and happy."
"He had a tear coming down and he wiped it away. I felt so good walking to him. It made me feel like a complete woman.
"I wanted it to be over the top. I'm obsessed with castles and I love French decor and goth. I found this castle and it was perfect.
"I also wanted to make sure it was a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests."
Canadian Chad Kroeger proposed to Lavigne a month into their relationship.
He said: "It felt like the stars had aligned. It felt like fate was intervening and I was being given this wake-up call, 'Don't let this one get away.'
"And I think she felt the same way and that's why I proposed in such a short time span, because we wanted to start our lives together."
