Singer Michael Buble weds TV star

Canadian pop star Michael Buble has married Argentine TV actress Luisana Lopilato in a civil ceremony.

The Grammy-winning singer of Crazy Love and his sweetheart posed for a mob of fans after tying the knot at a civil registry in Buenos Aires.

She wore a lilac chiffon dress with silver high heels and Michael wore a sharp grey suit as he leaned down for a kiss.

Then Luisana, 23, tossed a bouquet of purple orchids into the crowd as some fans threw rice and red rose petals and a young woman shouted: "I love you Michael!"

Singer Michael, 35, won his Grammy last month for traditional pop vocal album, and is one of North America's top-grossing concert entertainers. Luisana made her name as a model and in Argentine sitcoms and soap operas, including Rebel Way, Little Girls, Married With Children and Pirate Soul.

The couple plan a full ceremony with 300 guests next month at a mansion outside Buenos Aires, and another wedding in Vancouver in April. They have homes in Canada, Los Angeles and Buenos Aires province.

Michael dated British actress Emily Blunt for several years before he met Luisana in 2009 during a South American concert tour. Luisana was romantically involved before with tennis player Juan Monaco.

With more than 500,000 fans and followers on Facebook and Twitter, she sent messages throughout the day, thanking her family and the media. "How beautiful it all was!" she wrote.
