'X Factor' star Cher uploaded a snap of her big day on Instagram, captioning it with a simple love heart.

Her spokesman confirmed the happy news to MailOnline saying: "Cher and Craig are married but all other details are private."

The 'Want You Back' singer kept it classic and simple on her big day, wearing a stunning strapless, white, lace gown, which she matched with a bouquet of white roses.

The 20-year-old - who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2010, got engaged to hairdresser Craig in 2011.

Last year, she told The Mirror: "I'm engaged and want to get married as soon as possible. I can't wait.

"I love Craig and he makes me happy. I know I am going to spend the rest of my life with him."

Cheryl Cole, who mentored Cher on 'The X Factor', was one of the first to congratulate her.

"Wow!! Heard your good news. Congratulations @CherLloyd I hope you have many more happy years and memories to come. Cheryl x," she tweeted.

We second that!
