Goth-themed wedding for Lavigne

Hampshire Chronicle: Avril Lavigne has married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger Avril Lavigne has married Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger

Chart star Avril Lavigne poses with a bouquet of black roses as she marries rocker Chad Kroeger at their goth-themed wedding.

The pair tied the knot at a chateau near Cannes in southern France, with Avril wearing a black Monique Lhuillier gown for the big day.

The Complicated singer - marrying for the second time - 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."

Avril was previously married to Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley for three years until she found love with Nickelback singer Chad.

She told the magazine: "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."

She said of the dark theme: "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."

Chad - who was marrying for the first time - proposed to Avril only 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."
