Former British soap opera star Michelle Keegan’s wedding gown has finally been revealed as a bespoke ivory gown, designed by Galia Lahav at Browns Bride. The brunette beauty designed her outfit herself, and it showed off her perfectly toned figure as she posed in the first official snaps on Hello magazine's website. Michelle previously revealed that she took inspiration from Amal Clooney’s custom-made Oscar de la Renta gown, which she wore when she married George Clooney last year.
“That was the one that stood out for me. I couldn’t find one that I really liked so instead I took inspiration from various aspects of dresses I loved and it's been made for me,” Keegan said about Clooney’s wedding gown.
The stunning backless ivory gown featured a fishtail skirt, made of French lace and decorated with Swarovski crystals. It complimented her figure. But the piece de resistance was the Italian veil from Peter Langer. Keegan paid tribute to her late grandmother Beth by ensuring that her gown had fine lace around the edges, which was a nod to Spain as her grandma was from Gibraltar.
The actress added glamour to her ensemble in a pair of silver python platform heels, which had her new initials "MW" in diamante on the soles. In keeping with tradition Michelle had something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. The blue was the perfume Blue by Oscar De La Renta. The old was her mom’s blue garter from her wedding day. The new was her wedding dress and the borrowed were diamond earrings from Amrapali.
The former “Coronation Street” star married "The Only Way Is Essex" star Mark Wright in a star-studded ceremony in Bury St. Edmunds on May 24. The first snaps from their big day showed the pair posing on the cover of Hello! The couple described the ceremony as “the day our dreams came true.” The magazine also shared the picture on its official Instagram page after a week, according to Mirror UK.
The cover snap shows the pair smiling happily together as husband and wife, with Michelle showing her back to the camera as she leans into her man’s arms. Wearing her long hair wavy, she’s half clipped it back. Another smaller photo shows them at the alter, staring lovingly into each other's eyes as Michelle reveals the front of that gown for the first time.
Mark looked dapper in a classic black tuxedo and bow tie by Stephen Williams. He admitted in that he wasn’t sure whether to go for black or blue but he reveals in Hello that Michelle told him to pick black. While Mark gave Michelle a gold Rolex, the actress gifted her husband a selection of gifts -- including a gold buckled Cartier belt engraved with “I do today and forever 24 May 2015”.
