Firstly, she wore a lace-sleeved gown and the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress has since become renowned for its lace sleeves. Secondly, Katey decided to wear her hair in a loose half-up, half-down style with tousled curls – looking strikingly similar to the hairdo Kate Middleton wore on her big day. Katey also sported an impressive sweeping veil which finished off her regal ensemble.

Jed and Katey got engaged earlier this year

Many fans of the show were shocked by the nuptials because their courtship was never announced by the family, and the public first discovered the wedding date when Without A Crystal Ball was sent a wedding invitation.
