Wow! Looks like this X Factor UK star got hitched on Monday, judging from a recent Instagram photo! No, it’s not Simon Cowell, who’s expecting his first child with girlfriend Lauren Silverman, but it is someone he helped make famous: former contestant Cher Lloyd!

Cher, who’s become a British pop sensation despite placing fourth in her season of X Factor UK, posted a photo of herself with long-time fiancé Craig Monk, and they certainly look bridal. The “Want U Back” singer is clasping a bouquet of white roses in a strapless gown with a scalloped lace trim matching her veil. Meanwhile, her groom, who works as a hair stylist, is wearing a dark suit with a coordinating boutonniere on the lapel. Handsome couple, don’t you think?

The happy bride and groom got engaged in January 2012. While Cher initially said she wanted a short engagement, touring seemed to get in the way of her and the altar. With her soon to embark on a tour as a supporting act to X Factor judge Demi Lovato (along with X Factor USA alums Fifth Harmony), it looks like Cher found a break in her busy schedule to finally make it official.

Congrats to Cher and Craig!
