Leading Irish designer Paul Costelloe has revealed what it took to create the stunning, plunging satin wedding dress a pregnant Vogue Williams wore on her wedding day - and according to the couturier it was nothing but a pleasure.

Costelloe, whom the model has walked for on several occasions, said that the dress took a mere seven days to complete, but was 'a full team effort'.

"She was, as always, a joy to work with," Costelloe said of the former DJ.

"She's a beautiful woman, a credit to her generation and to Ireland."

Howth-native Vogue tied the knot with fiancé Spencer Matthews in Scotland, where guests enjoyed a 'simple and intimate' outdoor ceremony.

The couple exchanged vows in front of a handful of family - including Spencer's brother James and his wife Pippa Middleton - on the banks of a beautiful loch, which is situated on his family's impressive 30,000-acre estate.

The groom wore a custom midnight blue suit by Tony Lutwyche, while their wedding rings - rose gold for him, diamond for her - were designed by the former 'Made In Chelsea' star.

Readings were given by Spencer's brother-in-law James Middleton and half-sister Nina Mackie, and Vogue's sister Amber, while music was kept traditional with bagpipes blaring as guests sat before the ceremony.

The menu featured local Scottish produce, and a local baker chipped in with a three-tier pink sponge cake topped with fresh raspberries, vanilla cream buttercream frosting.

"It has gone down by many as the best wedding they’ve ever been to,” groom Spencer Matthews told Hello magazine on the day, before gushing about his new wife: “I can’t imagine life without Vogue at this point. People say, what’s changed? What’s different?

“But it’s just part of growing up, meeting your soulmate and moving on with life.”

The couple are due a baby boy and have said they are already planning for more kids in the future. “We would like to have at least three, in an ideal world,”  Spencer said.
