Avril Lavigne has married a fellow Canadian musician.

Lavigne married Deryck Whibley, guitarist and frontman for Sum 41, on Saturday, at a private estate near Santa Barbara, People magazine reported on its Web site.

The young rockers had a mostly traditional ceremony, the magazine said.

Lavigne wore a Vera Wang gown, carried white roses and was walked down the aisle by her father as Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March” played.

Lavigne, 21, and Whibley, 26, exchanged vows under an awning covered in white flowers.

Messages left by The Associated Press for Lavigne’s management company, Nettwerk Management, were not immediately returned Sunday.

The pair began dating in early 2004; they bought a house in Los Angeles later that year. They became engaged in Venice in 2005 while Lavigne was on a European tour.

The singer is working on her third album. She recently voiced the possum Heather in the movie “Over the Hedge.”
