It’s official! Cher Lloyd is now a “Mrs.” The 20-year-old British pop singer confirmed she married longtime beau Craig Monk on Monday.
The “Swagger Jagger” singer announced the news on her Instagram account, sharing with the world a black-and-white photo of the happy couple on their wedding day. The bride opted for a strapless gown covered in lace and wore her hair half down in loose curls with a long veil. Further details about their wedding day haven’t been shared yet.
Lloyd and Monk, a hairstylist, began dating in 2011 and confirmed their engagement in January 2012. In July 2012, she opened up about her relationship with him.
“I feel like being with Craig has changed me a lot. I feel I’m a lot more calm, I haven’t got an attitude any more. I had a stinking attitude, it was awful,” she told MTV U.K. “I have learned to appreciate things a lot more now that I’m with him.”
Back in September, Lloyd shared a similar sentiment with MTV News , with the “Want U Back” singer addressing her prior reputation as “a nightmare to work with.”
She continued, “I was 16 years old and I wanted everything my way and what I didn’t understand that just starting out and being in the competition you have to earn your stripes and I didn’t earn my stripes and I honestly feel that I haven’t earned all of them yet, there’s still a lot of hard work to do. I don’t want to be the person people don’t want to meet… I never want to be remembered as the girl that came in and was rude to everyone and was an absolute diva even though she ain’t got her stripes yet.”
In addition to making the time to tie the knot, Lloyd will also embark on the Neon Lights tour this February where she will open for Demi Lovato .
