Pete looked smart in a suit with a floral corsage in his pocket, while film editor Katia wowed in a strapless dress.

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

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

Obviously, 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.

Musician Jacqueline’s mother – herself an ex-Lance-Corporal in Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps – and sister Amy were also on hand to watch him marry Katia.

Located just 500 meters from the beach, Domaine Saint Clair features a heated outdoor swimming pool, a library and a covered terrace with a wood-burning stove.

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

In a recent conversation with BBC Scotland, he said: ‘I am recovering, I suppose I am off heroin for two and a half years which is a big deal for me and yes I will continue to write music, and still writing music.’

Pete rose to fame in the mid-2000s fronting the indie band The Libertines, but gained national attention when he dated supermodel Kate Moss.

The pair met at her 31st birthday party in January 2005, and he stated shortly afterwards that he had “really found love.”

Their turbulent romance ended briefly when Pete failed to complete a stint in rehab in Arizona, US, with Kate saying she has “several personal issues I need to address.”

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

Pete then called her a “nasty old rag” in an interview with Metro after they broke up for good in 2007, some months after he proposed to her.

Pete has a son, Astile, 18, from his relationship with Lisa Moorish, and in 2009 it was reported that the singer was once banned from seeing his son due to his drug addiction.

Happily: Pete, who has previously battled drug addiction, has taken a closer look at his lifestyle and has lived a much quieter life in France with Katia

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

Lisa told Metro in 2009: “Peter has occasional problems with his recovery, so it was a very difficult decision to make.

“But when he came out of rehab last year and started to get his life together, I thought the time was right. I want Astile to have a father.”

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