The 'Next To Me' singer, who has been dating Adam for seven years, plans to enjoy a "proper honeymoon" with her new husband.

The couple wed in a traditional ceremony in the Eastern European country on Saturday.

A source told the Daily Record newspaper: "It was a fairly traditional service in the evening. Emeli looked beautiful in a designer dress. Her fiance wore a lounge suit.

"There will be more celebrations before everyone heads home but Emeli now has some time off so will get to enjoy a proper honeymoon."

She also plans to take his surname, and become professionally known as Emeli Sande Gouraguine and take a Montenegrin passport.

Speaking on Montenegrin TV, she said: "I want to be the part of his life and his family, so I want to add his surname.

"I would also love to have a Montenegrin passport. I want to be part of his tradition.

"I grew up in a family of two different cultural backgrounds, so I embraced both."

Emeli has previously claimed she struggled to deal with her bi-racial background.

She said: "Apart from my sister, Lucy, there was nobody else there who looked like me...

"People knew you in the village. But any surrounding place you'd go to, you became a spectacle. People would stare, and it felt like a big thing."
