Rock superstar Tina Turner said her life was "a wonderful place to be" after marrying her German music producer boyfriend after 27 years.

The 73-year-old singer tied the knot with Erwin Bach in a ceremony on the banks of Lake Zurich in Switzerland last weekend.

She told Hello! Magazine: "It's that happiness that people talk about, when you wish for nothing, when you can finally take a deep breath and say, 'Everything is good'.

"It's a wonderful place to be."

The star, who is a practising Buddhist, said she chose to have a wedding that was in "the American tradition I grew up with, tailoring it a little bit to me".

She had picked out her wedding dress, a green and black silk Armani creation embellished with Swarovski crystals, after seeing it on a catwalk in Beijing.

"I thought, 'I gotta have that, even if I never wear it'," she said.

"Then I thought, 'I know, that will be my wedding dress'."

Turner, who asked that all her female guests wear white whilst the men wore black tie, was joined on the day by friends including Oprah Winfrey and Bryan Adams before a honeymoon in Italy.
