BACKLESS, beaded and beautiful. Aoife Cogan's wedding dress was a €5,000 gown by leading British designer Amanda Wakeley.

The ivory, silk, georgette, halterneck dress is called Cleopatra, but the former Miss Ireland styled her wedding look in a distinctly Indian style, wearing a dramatic 'Maangtika' pearl chain on her head.

The dress was bought at Myrtle Ivory in Anne's Lane, Dublin, where Amy Huberman went to buy her wedding dress two years ago. However, the two dresses couldn't have been more different; Amy's voluminous and traditional, Aoife's boho and revealing.

The groom, Gordon D'Arcy, gave a nod to the Leinster kit by wearing a navy blue tux by Hackett.

The dress, with its dramatic cutaway sides, wouldn't suit most brides, but the ultra-slim model wore it with confidence.

Just as she walked up the aisle, a bouquet of flowers arrived at Myrtle Ivory for the owners, sisters Marina and Suzanne, to thank them for their help.

"Aoife was an absolute treasure and totally gorgeous to work with," said Marina O'Riordan.

Early guests displayed different styles with the rugby WAGs all opting for short dresses -- from Suzi Amy accompanying boyfriend Rob Kearney to Leo Cullen's wife Dairine.

However, the Assets model girls from Aoife's agency nearly all opted for long, and arrived in a mesmerising array of colours -- Karen Fitzpatrick in red satin, Ruth Griffin in silver satin, Sarah McGovern in electric blue, Kelly O'Byrne in a black column dress and Jenny Lee Masterson in gold beads.
