Keira Knightley is set to wed in a romantic ceremony in the south of France this weekend, according to reports.
Just a year after announcing her engagement, the Jack Ryan actress and her rockstar fiancée James Righton are planning to tie the knot in a private affair in Provence, with just 100 friends and family.
The English rose and her Klaxons” keyboard player beau have been keeping the wedding plans close to their chest – guests only found out about the date recently. A source said: “It”s all been a massively covert operation – her friends and family were only told recently about the ceremony.
“They”ve all been told not to travel in big groups, to arrive separately and to all spread out where they”re staying so as not to draw attention to the wedding party.”
It”s no surprise that their French nuptials are top secret as the couple have kept their romance under wraps since they started dating. Earlier this month Keira, 28, said: “We”re not big wedding types. I don”t need to have all that, I”m just trying to enjoy the engagement bit.”
But it seems they are ready to take the next step and have chosen the south of France for the intimate ceremony, which will be held close to their £1.9million holiday home where they often take time out together.
James, 29, popped the question to the Anna Kerenina actress last May after more than a year together. The loved-up couple were introduced by mutual friend, fashionista Alexa Chung following the actress” five-year relationship with her Pride and Prejudice co-star Rupert Friend.
Keira, who is the face of Chanel”s Coco Mademoiselle fragrance, has another reason to be over the moon – she was featured in this year”s Sunday Times Rich List which stated she is worth a whopping £30million.
