Hilary Duff has shared the first photos from her wedding to Matthew Koma – and it's what dreams are made of. The Lizzie McGuire star married her long-term partner in the garden at their home on Saturday 21 December, with the bride wearing a bespoke gown by Jenny Packham, who has long been one of the Duchess of Cambridge's favourite fashion designers.

The elegant wedding dress was entirely custom-made for Hilary in London, and features a streamlined silhouette with cape-like sleeves that form a train with 100 buttons down the back. "There's a very modern shoulder. When we were coming up with the design, it was important to me that it was striking but simple. I couldn't imagine wearing a big fluffy dress," Hilary told Vogue at her wedding dress fitting, revealing that she asked for her and Matthew's initials to be embroidered on the inside of the dress's skirt.

The bride admitted that not only had she considered what she wanted to feel like on her big day when developing the dress, but she also wanted to "honour" her fiancé Matthew's taste too. "Matthew is very simple, and I really wanted to honour that," she said. "I really want to feel like myself, but also how I envisioned he would see me. The end result of what we came up with, with Jenny, is exactly how I wanted him to see me. I think it’s how he would envision what I would look like as a bride. It’s really special."
