The 32-year-old singer married her longtime boyfriend, art dealer Caspar Jopling, a few months ago in North Yorkshire, England.

The ‘Love Me Like You Do’ hit-maker admitted that while she has always wondered what her wedding day would be like, she had also become disillusioned with the idea of marriage because of her own parents’ breakup.

“I had quite a few outfits because I was really shameless for my wedding. Since I was a girl, I would draw pictures of girls in wedding dresses, in ball gowns. I always said to myself, if I ever get married — which I was really cynical about for a long time because my parents divorced. A lot of my childhood friends’ parents divorced also — so I was never really a big fan of it," she says on the ‘Table Manners’ podcast.

The star admitted she had to kiss a few frogs before finding Caspar.
