Pete looked dapper in a suit with a flower corsage in his pocket while film editor Katia wowed in a strapless gown.

He captioned the photo: ‘30.09.21’, alongside a love heart emoji. Katia also shared her own photo of the pair passionately kissing and simply wrote; ‘OUI’ alongside it.   

The couple wed at the Domaine Saint Clair hotel in the French city of Etretat – their home for the last three years – while The Libertines and the couple’s band Puta Madres provided music.

It’s understood Pete’s once estranged father Peter – a former Major in the Royal Signals – joined his son and The Libertines on stage for a rendition of the band’s 2002 hit What A Waster. 

The musician’s mother Jacqueline – herself an ex-Lance-Corporal in the Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps – and sister Amy were also present to  see him marry Katia.   

Situated just 550 yards from the beach, Domaine Saint Clair boasts a heated outdoor swimming pool, a library and a covered patio complete with a wood burner.

In recent years Pete, who revealed last week he’s been clean of heroin for two and a half years, has settled down with his Puta Madres bandmate Katia in France and ditched his bad boy lifestyle. 

Speaking to BBC Scotland recently, he said: ‘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 writing music, still writing music.’

Pete shot to fame in the mid-2000s as the frontman for indie band The Libertines, but found nationwide attention when he dated supermodel Kate Moss. 

The pair met at her 31st birthday bash in January 2005, and he declared soon after he’d ‘really found love.’ 

Their turbulent romance briefly ended when Pete failed to complete a stint in rehab in Arizona, USA, with Kate saying at the time she has ‘various personal issues I need to address.’

He and Kate eventually reunited and attended rehab together, but they were seen in many public rows before they finally split in July 2007 after getting engaged.

Pete then famously branded her a ‘nasty old rag’ in an interview with Metro after they split for good in 2007, which came months after he proposed to her. 

Pete has a son, Astile, 18, from his relationship with Lisa Moorish, and it was reported in 2009 that the singer was once-banned from seeing his son because of his drug habit.

But after going to rehab and getting clean, he became a much more hands-on dad.

Lisa told Metro in 2009: ‘Peter has on-and-off problems with his recovery so it was a really difficult decision to make. 

‘But when he came out of rehab last year, and started to get his life in order I thought the time was right. I want Astile to have a dad.’

Pete also has a daughter, Aisling, with model Lindi Hingston, who shared news of her daughter’s arrival a year after she was born.
