    Your booking is complete! (UK railway)

    I was booking a ticket on the UK railway website and when I finished, the statement 'your booking is complete' caught me by surprise. Shouldn't it be your booking is completed? I know that complete can be an adjective but is it possible to use in this way? Is it natural?

    Thanks

    It sounds more natural to me than Your booking is completed.
