Kate Middleton’s wedding shoe designer has finally been revealed six years after she tied the knot.

Just when you thought you knew every detail about the wedding of the century, eh? The Duchess of Cambridge wore a stunning Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress when she married Prince William in a lavish ceremony at Westminster Abbey in 2011 and still after all these years, her wedding remains the most inspiring of the decade.

The dress - featuring delicate lace sleeves and a large train - kept the 35 year-old’s shoes firmly covered. Now, the exact pair she wore on the big day have finally been revealed.

Kate opted for another Alexander McQueen design for her shoes, made from ivory duchesse satin and hand-embroidered with lace by the Royal School of Needlework. The shoes are now on display alongside the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress at Buckingham Palace.

Meanwhile, Kate’s bridesmaids had their shoes made by the Rainbow Club, which hand-dyes wedding shoes. Last month, it was also revealed that Kate wore a second bridal gown for the reception which was kept firmly under wraps.

Her other dress, worn for one of their many receptions at Clarence House, was a little more low-key than her Princess Grace inspired number walking up the aisle at Westminster Abbey. It was a simpler, silk gown with sweetheart neckline, embellished waistline and an angora cardigan to adhere to the conversation royal standards.

Her hair fell looser and more in keeping with the signature hair style she has embraced since then and like most brides, looked absolutely delighted on her big day. The after-party was as exclusive as it gets - the wedding itself had 1,900 guests in attendance, including Amy Huberman attending on her and Brian O'Driscoll's behalf and Victoria and David Beckham.
