Lloyd, who is a tender 20 years old, and Monk, 21, got engaged back in January 2012 when the star was only 18. The "Swagger Jagger" singer hasn't been shy about her rush to become Mrs. Monk—shortly after her engagement The Daily Mail reported that the pop star said she wanted to marry her man "'as soon as possible." She also reportedly told British magazine Heat that she was part gypsy, and due to her background, should have already gotten hitched. "I'm from a Gypsy background!" the singer said. "I'm meant to be married by now. But I'm happy, really happy. I love him to pieces, more than anything in the world, but I don't want people to take that away from me."

For a gypsy girl her wedding this past Monday looks surprisingly classic. Although the former Simon Cowell protegé is known for a more colorful and edgy style, we love that she chose a sophisticated and timeless strapless lace wedding dress. Her hair, billowing half-up half-down waves, looked ultra-romantic. Her bouquet, too, was a traditional, uniform white arrangement, a pairing that will never go out of style!

We hope more details surface soon, as the affair looked so elegant and timeless. Congrats to the happy couple!
