Singer Solange Knowles has tied the knot with her longterm boyfriend Alan Ferguson.

Beyoncé Knowles’ younger sister married video director Alan Ferguson in New Orleans, Louisiana Sunday evening in front of about 200 loved ones.

The ceremony took place at the Marigny Opera House, with the bride and groom arriving on a pair of vintage bicycles painted cream and decorated with roses.

The star arrived in an elegant tailored jumpsuit by couturier Stephane Rolland.

"Beaming. Calm. They looked pretty calm, relaxed on their wedding day," a source told People magazine, adding that the atmosphere was “definitely happy”.

For the ceremony, she opted for a spectacular white gown by her close friend, Kenzo designer Humberto Leon.

The stylish star accessorised the show stopping look with gold wrist cuffs and allowed her signature afro hair do and red lip take centre stage.

The 28-year-old stated, "Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love. Everything was a labor of love.”

Official portraits of the singer and DJ were shot by fashion photographer Rog Walker. The images released show her flanked by Beyoncé and their mother Tina Knowles, as well as other members of the wedding party, all of whom wore white.

According to Vogue, the bride walked down the aisle to one of the couple’s favorite songs, a symphonic instrumental of Donny Hathaway’s, “I Love the Lord, He Heard My Cry.”

Alan (51) matched his new bride in a white suit, but negated to wear a tie.

But the rapper did accompany his wife, Beyoncé and their young daughter, Blue Ivy to the

Solange’s son from a previous marriage, Daniel Julez, was also in attendance.

Solange and Alan have been an item since 2008.

She was formerly married to her childhood sweetheart Daniel Smith.
