Beyoncé was banned from performing

Beyoncé's mother banned her from performing at her recent wedding.

Tina Knowles, who tied the knot with 'Poltergeist' actor Richard Lawson on a yacht in Newport Beach, California last week, admits she didn't want the 'Pretty Hurts' hitmaker and rapper husband Jay Z "to work" on her special day.

She said: "We didn't want them to work. We wanted them to enjoy the day and not have the pressure of it."

But the couple's three-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, was involved in the festivities, as she was Tina's only flower girl.

The 61-year-old stylist was thrilled to have her famous family, including her other daughter Solange Knowles, around her and the wedding "couldn't have been more perfect."

She told PEOPLE magazine: "To walk down the aisle and see all my friends and family and to see my handsome man standing there, and to know that at 61 you can still find love and have a magical day like that ... it was really beautiful."

Tina didn't think she would ever find love again after she and ex-husband Matthew Knowles got divorced in 2011.

She explained: "There was a time when I doubted if I would find love again. But I was determined to be happy."

Tina and Richard, 68, started dating 18 months ago, but knew within four months that they wanted to spend their rest of their lives together, as they have been friends for three decades.

She added: "You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it."
