Love is truly in the air for actress Keira Knightley, as she recently received an 100-year-old olive tree from her new hubby, James Righton, as a wedding gift.

A source told The Sun, the tree cost Righton over $4,000 and he even had their initials carved into it, “James had it planted in the back garden of her home in France on the day of the wedding. He had carved their initials in a heart and showed her in front of everyone. She collapsed into fits of giggles, it was very sweet.”

Last Saturday, the couple tied the knot at the town hall in Mazan, a city in France. It was a small ceremony with Knightley’s parents as witnesses. Siblings and other family members were also in attendance.

After the ceremony, the newlyweds, along with family and friends, celebrated at Knightley’s family-owned $5 million vineyard.

Knightley met Righton, a musician with The Klaxons, about a year ago.

Righton seems to be very sentimental, as he also gave Knightley his grandmother’s ring – a family heirloom – for her wedding band.
