Keira Knightley and James Righton

Keira Knightley was a "charming bride" when she got married to James Righton.

The couple - who got engaged a year ago - held a low-key ceremony in Provence yesterday (04.05.13), and the local mayor who conducted the wedding spoke highly of the stars.

Aime Navello revealed the marriage act was read out in French, with the 'Anna Karenina' star and Klaxons musician saying "oui" instead of "I do".

He told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "Keira was a charming bride, very modest and simple in her attitude, as was James.

"I got the impression that it was a very moving experience for both of them ... We had a translator as I read out the marriage act in French ... as we posed the question in both French and English, they both replied with a 'oui' and a 'yes'."

Aime admitted he hadn't heard of the star couple before their special day, but he was told of the importance of keeping it a secret.

The former headmaster said: "The first I heard of the marriage was a couple of days ago when someone in my town hall who knew Keira took a message which asked for complete secrecy.

"I kept my word and didn't even inform any of my 27 town councillors. Normally I know most of the couples I marry. Many of them are children I used to teach, but I haven't heard of Keira, nor for that matter James."
