Prince Albert II of Monaco, 53, married former South African Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock, 33, on Saturday, following a week of intrigue and rumor.

On the occasion of her religious wedding, Princess Charlene turned serene in a dazing Giorgio Armani gown studded in crystal and pearl.

According to the palace, an Italian designer's team took 2,500 hours to prepare Princess Charlene's gown. For the embroidery, they took another 700 hours. The palace announced that the gown also had 40,000 Swarovski crystals, 20,000 mother of pearl tear drops and 30,000 stones in gold shades.

On the other hand the groom, Prince Albert II, came out in the cream summer uniform of Monaco's palace guards. Its sleeves were decorated with oak and olive leave and the front was glazed with monogrammed golden buttons.

While his chest was carrying medals representing the Order of Saint Charles, the Order of Grimaldi and France's Legion of Honour, a rosette at the top of his firm fabric cap was representing the Crown of Monaco.

After the religious function, the newlywed couple hosted a reception, at which Princess Charlene wore another stunning off-white Armani outfit with a broad décolletage.
