Avril Lavigne is no longer the girlfriend of Brody Jenner — she is officially the wife of rocker Chad Kroeger! The former X Factor guest performer purposefully scheduled her wedding to take place on Canada Day and we have all the juicy details surrounding the ceremony and the whimsical pre-wedding party!
Despite her status as an international star, Avril Lavigne remains proud of her Canadian roots — and she made that quite clear during the wedding planning process. Earlier this year, Avril told Chelsea Handler, “[Chad Kroeger is] Canadian, and I’m Canadian, and we have a lot in common.”
To capitalize on this Canadian theme, Avril chose to decorate the wedding venue in the nation’s official colors (red and white) and set the festivities for July 1st — otherwise known as Canada Day. Interestingly enough, the ceremony itself did not take place in Canada. Instead, Avril and Chad decided to book a wedding in Cannes, France. It is believed to be a very private affair, with just family members and close friends attending the ceremony.
The festivities may be private, but fans of Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger will have the opportunity to enjoy the couple’s wedding song in the near future. The two wrote and recorded the track together and plan to release it soon. This is not their first time working together, but it will likely be viewed as one of their more memorable collaborations. Further evidence of their joining of musical forces will be available come September, when the release of Avril’s new album (with co-writer Chad Kroeger) takes place. Until then, we’re sure the musical pair will be busy enjoying life as a newly married couple!
