Avril Lavigne and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger have spoken about their wedding in France this week (July 1).
The pair met when they worked together on Lavigne’s forthcoming fifth album, which is set for release some time in 2013. They have been engaged since August 2012. “I wanted to make sure it’s a crazy vacation and an experience of a lifetime for our guests,” Lavigne told Hello! magazine. “I’ve been planning this wedding for a really long time.”
According to the magazine, the wedding took place on Monday and was attended by 110 people. Lavigne reportedly wore a black Monique Lhuillier dress. “When you’ve got that ring on your finger that you get to look at every single day, and you get to call that other person husband or wife, it’s a really special feeling,” Kroeger said.
Back in April, Lavigne unveiled a new track that namechecked Radiohead – scroll down to listen to it. ‘Here’s To Never Growing Up’ features the line: “Singing Radiohead at the top of our lungs, with the boombox blaring as we’re falling in love”. The track was co-written with Kroeger. At the end of last year Lavigne unveiled her cover of the ‘How You Remind Me’ by Kroeger’s band Nickelback, which will appear on the soundtrack to a new anime film One Piece Film Z.
