Beatrice Borromeo channels Greek goddess on wedding day

She wore three different dresses at her civil ceremony last week, so it comes as no surprise that Beatrice Borromeo had a stunning outfit change at her religious wedding on Saturday. The Italian aristocrat, who married Princess Caroline of Monaco's son Pierre Casiraghi for the second time on 1 August, opted for two show-stopping gowns.

At last week's ceremony the bride looked beautiful in a pale pink Valentino gown, but for the religious affair on her family-owned Borromean Islands in Italy, Beatrice chose even more spectacular dresses.

The 29-year-old once again turned to her home country and chose Italian designer Giorgio Armani for her big day.

She walked down the aisle in a bespoke ivory wedding dress from the label's Privé collection, wowing in the lace creation. The gown showed off Beatrice's svelte figure and featured a demure high neckline and three-quarter length sleeves.

To complete her bridal look, the journalist swept her blonde hair into a neat bun and pinned a flowing veil into her sophisticated 'do. Beatrice's new husband Pierre, 27, looked dapper in a grey three-piece suit and had a flower pinned into his lapel.

The Italian fashion house proudly confirmed the dress was theirs, by sharing an Instagram photo of the newlyweds and captioning it: "Beatrice Borromeo wore a custom-made ivory #GiorgioArmani Privé gown to her wedding with Pierre Casiraghi held earlier today in northern Italy."

While the religious ceremony was strictly for family and friends on the private Isolino di San Giovanni in Lake Maggiore, lucky residents and tourists were able to catch a glimpse of Beatrice and Pierre as they headed to their reception at nearby Rocca d'Angera.

The castle, which houses a museum, botanical gardens, two towers and no less than five historical halls, is normally open to the public but on the weekend of Pierre and Beatrice's wedding, it was closed for the couple's reception.

Shortly after the sun set on the picturesque fortress, the bride and groom were spotted arriving, walking hand-in-hand. Beatrice had changed into a glamorous silk tulle evening dress, again designed by Giorgio Armani, and perfectly epitomised a Greek goddess with her hair tied up into a braided bun.

The blushing bride, who has been with Pierre for seven years after meeting him at university, beamed from ear to ear as she was helped off the boat by her gallant prince.

Guests, who included Princess Caroline, Princess Stephanie and Caroline's children Andrea and Charlotte Casiraghi and Princess Alexandra, enjoyed a sit-down dinner at the reception, followed by a night of dancing and toasting to the newlyweds.
