The couple tied the knot in a civil ceremony on Friday and had a second celebration on Saturday. A new photo has been released of Marie wearing the first of her two wedding outfits as she made her way down the aisle with her husband. Posted on Atelier Boisanger's Instagram account, the beautiful bride looked stunning in a floor-length gown, which had been created by her sister-in-law Pauline Ducruet. What's more, the delicate Chantilly lace on the wedding dress took 300 hours to embroidery.

According to Monaco Matin, Marie walked down the aisle with her brother, and Pauline walked behind to hold her train. They walked to Just The Way You Are by John Legend, and Hallelujah was also played before the vows, which made the guests emotional. Louis explained that they chose to marry at Monaco Cathedral because he wanted to pay tribute to his grandfather Prince Rainier. Their wedding was the first at Monaco Cathedral since Rainier married Grace Kelly in 1956.
