The dress Sophie Hunter wore to marry Benedict Cumberbatch has been revealed.

The director wed the Oscar-nominated actor in February, and as expected, the pair kept a low profile before, during and after the nuptials.

But Maison Valentino shared a behind the scenes snap of designing the couture gown, before later deleting it on Instagram.

Annie Leibovitz photographed the moment for a spread in US Vogue, which may have prompted the decision to remove the picture from social media.

The couple, who had been dating for just over a year before marrying on Valentine's Day, exchanged vows on the isle of Wight, one month after announcing Sophie was pregnant.

The happy pair are said to have brought in their own flowers, cake and music with local business owners commenting they did not make anything for the big day.

Benedict is having a wonderful 2015 so far, as the British thespian was up for an Academy Award for his work in The Imitation Game.
