English native, Pete Doherty did not waste any time making Katia De Vidas his beloved wife. The couple reportedly tied the knot only two days after their engagement.
The Sun reported Pete Doherty and Katia De Vidas celebrated their nuptials last week. The pair said their "I dos" in front of friends and family in France.
Their ceremony was held at a church in Normandy. The pair were later pictured exiting the chapel looking over the moon that they were finally wed.
Doherty, 42, dressed up for the first time in years in his stage-favored garb of a suit and a skinny black tie while his bride donned a white cocktail strapless dress with white chiffon layers.
De Vidas wore a garland of white flowers in her hair and clutched a bouquet while her groom tucked a matching boutonniere into the lapel of his jacket.
The outlet revealed Doherty had asked his bandmate to marry him only last week. Katia was spotted flaunting her sparkling engagement ring in an Instagram post on Tuesday, September 28.
Doherty’s publicist had confirmed the pair were planning on walking down the aisle that same week. The film editor and Doherty have been together since 2012 and now, the lovebirds upped and moved to Normandy, northern France, and tied the knot.
DEALING WITH ADDICTION
The news of the couple’s marriage comes after Doherty revealed to BBC Scotland’s The Seven program recently that he has been remained clean from heroin for more than two years, saying:
“I’m in recovery, I suppose. I’m two-and-a-half years clean of heroin, which is a big deal for me. And yeah, I’m ticking along. I’m writing music, still writing music, yeah.”
During the interview, the artist also got candid about his own experience in prison and a joint art program he is involved in with fellow inmates that helps rehabilitate them.
The poet shared the program entails prisoners getting out of their cell and being given pens and papers and all the tools needed to draw.
When asked how he came up with the program, Doherty referenced his own experience of being an inmate and said being locked up is difficult for anyone, especially a creative who needs to function.
The actor divulged that when he was in prison, he never had the opportunity to do anything creative, so now that he has a chance to bring the art project to other inmates, he hopes to inspire them.
