Posted: Updated:

Keira Knightley's new husband, musician James Righton, gave her a very sweet gift when they tied the knot on Saturday.

Righton gifted his new wife a 100-year-old olive tree he planted in the backyard of their home in France, The Sun reported Thursday. He carved their initials and wedding date into the bark, and presented it to her and their guests at their wedding on Saturday.

The couple married at the town hall in Mazan, France, with just a few witnesses. About 50 to 100 guests celebrated afterwards at their vacation home near Avignon. Knightley wore a short tulle dress, Chanel jacket and ballet flats and Righton wore a navy suit.

Knightley and Righton got engaged in May 2012 after a year of dating.
