It's not easy for celebrities and musicians to keep their personal lives under wraps, but country singer Sarah Darling managed to do just that.

Darling revealed that she secretly married English fiance James Muriel back in April. The catch? The formerly long-distance couple also got engaged that same weekend, so to say that they moved quickly would be an understatement.

Things happened so fast that Muriel, 30, didn't even have an engagement ring for his bride, 31, but better late than never, since he is currently custom designing one.

Darling shared a photo of her big day on her Instagarm seven months later, writing:

It's official everyone! This past April I married the love of my life in a private ceremony on the beach. It was absolutely the best day of my life! We thank you for all the best wishes! James and I are planning a bigger wedding for all our family and friends In the Spring!#oceansizelove.

Since it was her big day, Darling was totally within her rights to keep the details of her beachside nuptials in Key West, Fla. (and her marital status) close to the vest until she was ready to share them.

"We had dated long-distance for more than a year, so when he moved to Nashville, we knew right away we wanted to be together as husband and wife," Darling told PEOPLE about the rush to the altar. "We just decided very spontaneously to get married. Saying our vows beside the Atlantic had special meaning because it was what separated us, and now we came together beside it."

The couple will have a formal ceremony in Nashville on May 30 of next year.

Below is the picture of the happy couple on their first wedding day.
