Amy Winehouse may sing that "love is a losing game," but she's emerged a winner.

The singer, who married Blake Fielder-Civil last week, raved about her new husband Thursday at Britain's Ivor Novello songwriting awards, where she scored a best contemporary song trophy for her hit "Rehab."

"I had a lovely dress and he looked very handsome," she told reporters of her Miami wedding. "We're not planning a honeymoon. Every day is a honeymoon – I've married the best man in the world."

She admitted the wedding was sudden – she and Fielder-Civil, who inspired some of the songs on her album Back to Black after they temporarily broke up, had been engaged for less than a month – but she said, "that's the way I am."

Fielder-Civil, 23, a music-video assistant, and Winehouse, 23, first began dating two years ago and had only recently resumed their courtship.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the singer introduced "Rehab" on a recent radio appearance by saying: "Here is a song I wrote when he left me a couple years ago. I wrote the whole album about it, really. We went on our little separate ways, and then realized that we loved each other. Life's too short."
