Pirates of the Caribbean actor Keira Knightley finally got married on Saturday with Klaxons keyboardist James Righton. Following their footsteps Shake It Up actor Brandon Johnson also got married on the same day with Ariel Fox, while socialite Paris Hilton and Johnny Depp have expressed their wish to get married soon to their dates
 
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY married Klaxons musician James Righton in the South of France on May 4. The bride wore a tulle, pale pink, strapless, full-skirted dress that came to the knee, accessorised with a white, Chanel tweed jacket, ballet pumps and a floral garland which sat on top of her loose hair. The low-key ceremony — which was held in front of just 11 guests — took place at a town hall in Mazan, 12 miles from Marseille.

With so many lavish, star-studded nuptials, her quiet ceremony comes as a refreshing surprise. Most celebrities get hitched in lavish, six-figure fetes that are just too over-the-top to believe.

In the afternoon, the reception was hosted at the holiday home of Knightley’s mother, playwright Sharman MacDonald, in a marquee erected in the garden. The Vogue cover girl announced news of her engagement in May 2012 and was soon after seen wearing a brilliant-cut solitaire diamond ring. Knightley recently described wedding planning as “terrifying”, telling US talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in November that she had turned to the internet for help. Rumours about her wedding dress have been circulating since August 2012, when Karl Lagerfeld reportedly offered to design her bridal gown. Knightley didn’t confirm or deny the speculation, telling us in September 2012  that “it would be pretty generous of him”.

The 28-year-old actor started dating her now-husband just over two years ago, after they were reportedly introduced by mutual friend Alexa Chung.

Knightley is known for her roles in Love Actually (2003), Pride and Prejudice (2005), The Duchess (2008) and Anna Karenina (2012).

Meanwhile, Brandon Johnson just stepped into his favourite role yet: husband! On May 4, the Shake It Up actor and One Life to Live alum said “I do” to fiancee Ariel Fox, his rep confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

The star and his interior designer bride wed at Wayfarers Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, California, the rep tells. Johnson wore a tux handmade by Chris Chollet of Alexander 1922, and both he and Fox wrote their own vows. Among those in attendance to witness the happy occasion? Swingers actor Alex Desert and 42 actor Alan Tudyk.

Following the ceremony, the newly minted husband and wife moved on to the Terranea Resort to celebrate with their guests. The theme of their reception — which featured peonies, candles, and white-sequin-dressed tables — was “Rat Pack Under the Stars.”

Johnson, whose show 72 Hours premieres on June 6 on TNT and TBS, proposed to Fox on June 12, 2012, at Capella Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas. They’ve been together for four years — a very blissful four years, the groom says. “My life expanded on every level when she came into it,” Johnson tells Us of his new wife. “We lift each other up. Two special souls have now become one.”

Meanwhile, socialite Paris Hilton wants to get married and have children with her 21-year-old Spanish boyfriend River Viiperi. The 32-year-old, jailed in 2007 after being caught driving with a suspended license while on probation for driving under the influence of liquor, says she is no longer a party girl, reports contactmusiccom.

“I’m staying out of trouble. I’ve grown up,” Hilton told The Wendy Williams Show.

Asked if she was ready to start a family, she said: “I think that’s every woman’s dream. I think that’s the meaning of life to have children and have a family one day. I am so in love.

“I feel so lucky to have met him. He’s one of the kindest, most loyal men I’ve ever met in my entire life, and he treats me like a princess. He’s the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen in my life,” she added.

However, actor Johnny Depp has reportedly told girlfriend Amber Heard that he wants to marry her. The couple has been dating for over six months and had parted ways briefly. But they have now reconciled. Depp, who has two children — Rose and Jack — with ex-girlfriend Vanessa Paradis, has introduced Heard to his family.

“Johnny’s told Amber he wants to marry her and have children after introducing her to his kids Lily Rose and Jack,” thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

“Johnny’s told her he is so in love with her that he wants to marry her one day,” the source added.

The couple have moved in the same house with the children.

“They’re going to stay with the kids at his house in Plan de la Tour in the south of France, so it’s full steam ahead again,” the source said.
