Kelly Clarkson & Brandon Blackstock Marry In Tennessee Ceremony

Kelly Clarkson married Brandon Blackstock yesterday (20th October) in a secret ceremony in Tennessee. The couple tied the knot at the Blackberry Farms, a luxury hotel set in 4200 acres near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The 31-year-old shared her happy news on Twitter, writing "I'm officially Mrs. Blackstock. We got married yesterday at Blackberry Farms in TN, the most beautiful place ever!" Clarkson included a photograph of the couple smiling under a rustic bridge. Clarkson looked beautiful wearing a long lace dress whilst in two photographs her new husband kissed her. In a third photograph she thanked the creators of her classic dress and ornate headdress.

The wedding appears to have been a small event as Clarkson, in an interview with Us Weekly earlier this month, stated they wanted a "small, little wedding - me and Brandon and the kids." 36-year-old Brandon has two children from a previous marriage, Savannah (aged 12) and Seth (aged 6). It appears Clarkson is keen to expand their family as, in a recent televised interview, the 'Since U Been Gone' singer announced she intends to begin trying for a baby immediately after marrying Blackstock. 

Brandon is the son of Clarkson's manager Narvel Blackstock. The couple began dating in February 2012 shortly after Brandon divorced his first wife. Clarkson announced their engagement in December 2012, also via Twitter, further revealing in August of this year their intention to elope rather than plan an elaborate ceremony. 

Clarkson is marrying into a musical family, not only is Brandon the son of her manager, he is also the step-son of country star and actress Reba McEntire. McEntire could not have been happier with the news of the couple's engagement. In an interview with Katie in February (as reported by E!), McEntire stated she was "thrilled to death, thrilled to death," about the engagement and further exclaimed "to have my buddy as my daughter-in-law, I mean, who could ask for more?"

Clarkson has recently finished working on her first ever Christmas album Wrapped in Red. The album, set to be released on 25th October, features a number of classic Christmas songs and two co-written by Clarkson.

Congratulations to the newlyweds!
