Avril Lavigne & Chad Kroeger To Marry In France

'Girlfriend' singer Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger are to be married in the idyllic south of France and have already begun to celebrate this weekend with a Cannes wedding party on Saturday. Initial reports stated the wedding had taken place on Saturday due to a tweet from Mike Heller, CEO of the talent company that reps the 28 year-old star: "I'm in south of France about to see my little Rok star #avril get married I am so happy to be part of this special celebration." This was taken to mean that the knot had already been tied but a source even closer to the couple refutes the rumours, saying they're "not technically married yet" and that Heller's tweets were in anticipation of Monday's ceremony.

Chad & Avril Have Been Dating Since Last August.

This will be Lavigne's second marriage after her three year marriage to Sum 41 lead singer, Deryck Whibley. She met Kroeger, 38, whilst recording her new fifth album and the pair began dating with him proposing just a month afterwards in August last year. 'Sk8er Boi' Avril revealed her connection with the 'Rockstar' singer: "I feel most beautiful when I'm around Chad.I'm not one who really dresses up that much. I'm usually in the studio in regular, comfy clothes. I wear some pretty out-there designs. He likes my style - he thinks I'm cute."

The 'How You Remind Me' growly-voiced guitarist confessed his nerves when he proposed after just one month: "You can travel the world and sing songs to thousands of people and not have your heartbeat raised at all. You get down on one knee and commit yourself to a woman for the rest of your life. I was very nervous!...I thought I would never get married.I'm just lucky she said yes."

The Couple Are Set To Release A Track Together.

Canadian Avril's father is French so she has a right to French citizenship which she claimed in 2011, devoting herself to the French lifestyle by moving to Paris and taking French lessons. The location of the wedding reflects her heritage and the beauty of the surroundings will help make the "intimate" occasion as lavish as possible. According to The Daily Mail, Avril said: "I just want to make sure I really enjoy this amazing time and I want all the guests who come to have this once in a lifetime experience. I want everyone to say, 'Wow!' and for it to be special for everyone, not just us." Avril and Chad have a special wedding song planned for their ceremony, reports US Weekly, as the musical duo collaborate on a unique wedding track that they'll release to the public afterwards.
