London: Actor Matthew Mcconaughey, who wed Brazilian model and designer Camila Alves earlier this month, was not nervous but a little bit overcame with emotion while waiting for his bride.

The couple wed June 12, in Austin, Texas.

"I was not nervous. There was no regret. I remember leaning my head back and sort of just thinking and praying, and I had gone through 42 years of my life and looking forward to getting married one day," quoted him as saying.

"Then I went through 29 years of her life and it hit me that, `Here`s this woman that was once a young girl and this is every girl`s dream to find their prince.` To have that fairy tale that a young girl has, and then it hit me, `I`m that man!.` As soon as my head came down, the music cued and she walked in and I lost it. It was beautiful," he said.
