Pictures that have emerged of the wedding party show Knightley, 28, leaving Mazan Town Hall holding hands with Righton, 29.

Bloom did admit that he does find shooting love scenes strange. In the July issue of , Knightley says she prefers British men. Bloom, 29, who has been linked to Kate Bosworth, Claire Danes and Sienna Miller, may have an edge over many of his actor counterparts if he ever wants to make a serious play for Keira's heart. "The only option is to get on with things."A source told the paper that Friend, 29, was particularly troubled by fame."Rupert hates the idea of being followed and photographed," the insider said.
"Keira partially had to accept it because of her rising profile.""It affected the harmony in the relationship.A source said: "Most of their friends will fly out for the wedding on Friday. So the idea that you should suddenly have tea party because you're getting married suddenly just really confused me."They've been planning it for a while but wanted something small and private. Anyway on the internet there are things like Bridal Tea Parties. So the whole thing is kind of quite confusing I think." Meanwhile, Knightley has also opened up about the time that she saw a ghost. There was a guy sitting on the sofa." The Anna Karenina star continued: "He had a burgundy shirt on and he had short black hair and I thought 'Oh, some guy has come into my room'.The actress accessorised her dress with a white tweed jacket created especially by Karl Lagerfeld, as well as Chanel pink and grey ballet pumps and a floral garland which sat on top of her loose hair.The low-key ceremony - which was held in front of just 11 guests - took place at a town hall in Mazan, 12 miles from Marseille.Knightley wore a simple, strapless tulle dress created by Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld for the occasion, which she teamed with flat pumps and a cropped Chanel jacket. The car certainly looked as though it had seen better days."The couple are thought to have celebrated later with a bigger party at Knightley's mother's home, just a few miles outside of Mazan.
