Avril Lavigne and Nickelback's Chad Kroeger Get Married

Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger tied the knot in the South of France yesterday.

E! News has learned that the pair exchanged their "I dos" at the 14th century castle named Château de la Napoule in the town of Mandelieu.

The two singers were surrounded by 50 of their closest friends and family for the destination wedding. Lavigne and Kroeger said they vows just outside of the castle, in a courtyard that had stunning views of the coastline.

In keeping with their rock star style, the reception went all through the night. Fireworks over the sea set the party off at midnight, while a DJ spun tunes until 6 a.m.

And for those who managed to stay up for the duration of the special affair, a wedding brunch was hosted at the château early Tuesday morning.

It appears that couple wanted to keep details about their wedding ceremony as secretive as possible. Guests of the nuptials were not told about the wedding location initially, and were driven to the venue privately.

Last month, the bride told E! News she and her hubby-to-be wanted their wedding to be very intimate.

"We want it to be unique and special and we it to be a very big event but at the same time it's small and it's just close friends and close family," Lavigne said
