Surprise – Cher Lloyd is married!

The British pop singer tied the knot with hairstylist beau Craig Monk, revealing the news Wednesday when she posted a black-and white wedding snapshot on her Instagram account. The photo is simply captioned "18/11/13."

In the snapshot, the "Swagger Jagger" singer is wearing a strapless lace gown and long veil, as her new husband protectively caresses her waist.

"Thank you for all your lovely messages !! I'm so happy!!!" the singer, who got her start on The X Factor, Tweeted several hours after releasing the photo.

Lloyd, 20, and Monk, 23, began dating in 2011 after he reportedly fitted her for hair extensions. The couple confirmed their engagement about nine months later, in January 2012.

Although Lloyd was coy about the wedding, the singer has repeatedly talked about her connection with Monk and how he helped to tame her self-professed diva-ish streak.

"I feel like being with Craig has changed me a lot. I feel I'm a lot more calm, I haven't got an attitude any more," she told MTV U.K. last year, adding: "I have learned to appreciate things a lot more now I'm with him."
