British actress Keira Knightley married singer James Righton in a discreet ceremony in the southern French village of Mazan on Saturday, according to the mayor.

Mayor Aime Navello told AFP the small civil ceremony was attended by "about 15 people", mostly family.

The parents of the 28-year-old actress, known for her role in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" films, own a house in Mazan, a town of about 5,000 people near the medieval town of Avignon in Provence.

Her husband is part of the band The Klaxons.

Knightley is also known for her roles in "Love Actually" (2003), "Pride and Prejudice" (2005), "The Duchess" (2008) and "Anna Karenina" (2012).
