The 28-year-old singer will tie the knot with Nickleback singer in the south of France, according to the CEO of the talent company that reps her, Mike Heller.

Heller Tweeted a message: “I’m in south of France about to see my little Rok star #avril get married I am so happy to be part of this special celebration.”

He later added: “No pictures will be sent since this is #avril wedding but I will tell you everyone is so excited.”

Previous reports stated that the wedding ceremony had already taken place, however it appeared to be a wedding party, which was held on June 29 in Cannes.

In reality, rock princess will cap off her lavish “wedding weekend” getaway with the exchange of vows only on Monday evening, after spending three days in the south of France celebrating her union to Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger.

According to an insider of the couple the wedding is going to be “extremely intimate, just close friends and family.”

During a Nylon Magazine event on June 11, the 28-year-old told Us that their wedding song would be a new track that they wrote together. “We’ll have to release it after,” she explained.

As for wedding planning, the “Here’s To Never Growing Up” singer said she was the one taking control — which her fellow Canadian beau, 38, didn’t mind at all.

“I’ve been doing it, I’m the girl,” she laughed. “I’m the one who has the crazy vision and he’s letting me be me. It’s a lot and I just want to make sure I really enjoy this amazing time.”

She added, “I want all the guests who come to have this once in a lifetime experience and I want everyone to say ‘Wow!’ and for it to be special for everyone, not just us.”

This will be Lavigne’s second marriage after her arriage to Sum 41 lead singer, Deryck Whibley, and the first marriage for the Nickelback rocker. She filed for divorce from Deryck Whibley in October 2009 after three years of marriage.

She met Kroeger, 38, whilst recording her new fifth album and the pair began dating with him proposing with a 14-carat diamond ring just a month afterwards in August last year, after just one month of dating.

She said: “I had been making this scrapbook of my time in the studio. I walk over and he had taken a photo of himself holding the ring box and put the Polaroid in my scrapbook. Because I had stickers everywhere he put in ‘Will you marry me?’ It was really romantic and kind of made sense.”

“Sk8er Boi” Avril revealed her connection with the “Rockstar” singer: “I feel most beautiful when I’m around Chad.I’m not one who really dresses up that much. I’m usually in the studio in regular, comfy clothes. I wear some pretty out-there designs. He likes my style – he thinks I’m cute.”

Chad revealed he was very nervous beforehand.

He explained: “You can travel the world and sing songs to thousands of people and not have your heartbeat raised at all. You get down on one knee and commit yourself to a woman for the rest of your life. I was very nervous!”

The ‘How You Remind Me’ growly-voiced guitarist confessed he never expected to get married but meeting Avril changed his mind, reports the Daily Mail.
