Last month, fashion designer Misha Nonoo got married, and her guest list included her old friend Meghan Markle, Prince Harry (she apparently introduced the pair) and even Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom.
The lavish event took place in Italy and although it was all very private, Misha has now chosen to release pictures of her amazing wedding dress, and it's both stunning and unexpected.
Featuring a guipure lace bodice, long veil and elegant neckline, it was worthy of any royal wedding. The designer also opened up about the design process.
She wrote, 'Last weekend I married the love of my life in a dress I designed especially for the occasion. It was such a special process to make this one of a kind piece, particularly when I usually design with every woman in mind, the options felt endless. In the end, we selected a hand embroidered guipure lace on laser cut silk organza embroidered by a Swiss family-run mill established in 1904'.
'We finished the piece with a 10 meter long silk tulle veil. I wanted to share these images with you and thank you all for your incredibly warm wishes as we embark on married life together,' she added.
Misha previously opened up to PEOPLE about creating her dream dress, revealing, 'It was really hard. Obviously, you want your husband to think you look beautiful and you want your respective families to as well, but otherwise you can do whatever you want — you can have short sleeves, long sleeves, high neck, low neck, open back, no back. It makes it much more challenging.'
I think we can all agree the result was worth the wait.

She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).
Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.
However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.
Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
