Update 2: People magazine reports that Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger officially wed on Monday in the South of France. Although the ceremony took place in France, the couple chose to marry on Canada Day, July 1, in honour of their native country. Avril wore a black wedding dress.
Well, that was quick! After getting engaged less than a year ago after a whirlwind romance, it seems pop-rock singers Avril Lavinge, 28, and Chad Kroeger, 38, have tied the knot! A source reportedly confirmed to US Weeklythat the couple were married in Cannes, France yesterday, in an intimate affair that included celebrity guests like L.A. Reid.
Lavigne wore a custom-made wedding dress by Australian designer Johanna Johnson, and the couple had their first dance to a song they wrote together, which they now plan on releasing as a single. This is Kroeger's first marriage, and Lavigne's second — she was married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley from 2006 to 2009.
