Lily Allen, Sam Cooper

Even the fact that people knew about it beforehand couldn't stop Lily Allen from smiling on her big day.

The 26-year-old songbird swapped vows with Sam Cooper at St. James the Great Church in Gloucestershire, England, on Saturday, according to People. Dad Keith Allen walked her down the aisle. But that wasn't the only big news for the couple...

Carrying a bouquet of white roses, Allen said her I-dos in a gown by French designer Delphine Manivet that boasted three-quarter lace sleeves and an intricately detailed skirt.

Cooper popped the question on Christmas Day last year during a romantic vacay, a bright ray of winter sunshine in the face of a tragic loss some weeks before.

Allen had been excitedly tweeting with fans and friends about her upcoming nuptials.

When one fan asked how she was doing, she wrote, "I'm GREAT, I'm getting MARRIED EEEEEK !!!!!". She left it to her new hubby to spill the rest of the happy news, which he did to the 100 close family and friends who attended the wedding, according to the U.K. Telegraph.

No word whether the "winds of 275 mph in Gloucestershire" that she read about ("please tell me they're lying," she tweeted) ever materialized, but things otherwise went off without a hitch (luckily she lanced the—thank you, Twitter—"huge spot" on her nose beforehand). Congrats to the newlyweds!
