Singer Katie Melua has married former World Superbike champion James Toseland, it has been revealed.
The couple started dating last April after meeting at one of Melua's concerts and announced their engagement at the beginning of the year.
They tied the knot at the weekend in the Nash Conservatory at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, west London in front of wedding guests including music producer William Orbit and songwriter and producer Mike Batt.
The 27-year-old bride, who found fame as a teenager with her debut single The Closest Thing To Crazy, wore an off-white, embroidered and beaded dress by bridal designer Claire Pettibone, her spokeswoman said.
Georgian-born Melua was spotted by composer Batt in 2002 while studying at the Brit School for Performing Arts – where Adele, Jessie J and Amy Winehouse also began their music careers.
The Nine Million Bicycles singer's 2003 debut album Call Off The Search shot to the top of the album charts and she became one of the biggest-selling British female artist of all time.
The singer revealed she was engaged in February when she unveiled her ring during a gig. Toseland also announced their happy news on his Facebook page.
He wrote: "I asked Katie to marry me and she said yes. As you can imagine, I am a very happy man right now!"
Toseland has spoken of Melua's support after he broke both his wrists in an accident last year that ended his racing career. He has since been making a name for himself as a pianist.
He said: "Katie has been great. She had no interest in me whatsoever because I was a motorcycle racer. She hadn’t heard of me. She wouldn’t even know what Valentino Rossi looked like."
