PARIS: A French mayor says Oscar-nominated actress Keira Knightley has said “oui” to rocker James Righton in a small wedding ceremony in southern France.

Aime Navello said on Sunday that the couple followed French tradition when he married them at the Mazan town hall Saturday. Navello read the service in French and the couple responded in French and English. He said about 10 people were present.

Righton is the keyboard player for rock group Klaxons. He and Knightley got engaged a year ago.

Knightley first won notice for her role as a soccer-playing teenager in ''Bend It Like Beckham''.

She went on to star in the first three ''Pirates of the Caribbean'' movies and was nominated for an Oscar for playing Elizabeth Bennet in an adaptation of Jane Austen's ''Pride and Prejudice''.
