KEIRA Knightley's husband says their "beautiful wedding" was filled with love.

Klaxons keyboardist James Righton tied the knot with the "amazing" 28-year-old 'Anna Karenina' star in the south of France on May 4 and isn't worried that their marriage might change how people view him or his band.

The 29-year-old rocker told NME magazine: "I just fell in love with someone who happens to be amazing.

"We had a beautiful wedding and there was a lot of love. The music is the music. That thing is going to be there because of who she is, but I'd say we're a pretty established band."

James' bandmate Jamie Reynolds also said the couple's low-key wedding in the town hall in Mazan was the "greatest day ever".

He said: "It was the greatest day ever, it was fantastic. We're still high from it. It was about two weeks ago, it was a big party."

The couple tied the knot in front of just 11 guests before speeding back to her family's nearby $5 million vineyard for a 50-guest reception in a silver Renault Clio.

It was recently revealed that Keira's wedding band used to belong to James' grandmother.

A source said: "The ring he gave her was a family heirloom. He really did think it all through.

"It was an amazing wedding, the whole thing was really sweet and down to earth."
