A moment of nostalgia led Dawn O'Porter to share a special memory from her wedding this week. Nearly eight months after she tied the knot with actor Chris O'Dowd, Dawn uploaded a photograph of the newlyweds on their big day. The adorable picture shows the happy couple dancing together in front of their illuminated giant initials, their pet dog Potato running around by their feet.

Clearly visible is the TV presenter's beautiful wedding dress, a floaty vintage number with appliquéd daisies that she revealed once belonged to Princess Lillian of Belgium, the second wife of King Leopold III, who passed away in 2002. Dawn's trip down memory lane was triggered when she sat down to watch The King's Speech."This is the house we got marred in," she tweeted. "It's SO weird watching it. It was exactly the same on our big day!" It's thought that Dawn might have been referring to 33 Portland Place, a London townhouse that dates back to 1775 and is one of the most exclusive and fashionable venue's in London. Owned by flamboyant entrepreneur Edward Davenport, 33 Portland Place is where Kate Moss filmed her famous Agent Provocateur Dreams of Miss X campaign, and it has also hosted the likes of Cher, Keira Knightley, Gisele Bundchen and Johnny Depp.

"Even THAT sofa was there," Dawn, 34, continued. "It literally was exactly the same. Ahhhh the memories. She is standing where the haggis bon bons were being served. "And because I am feeling all nostalgic, here's a wedding pic for you…," she said before tweeting the photograph.Dawn and Bridesmaids' star Chris, 33, married in August 2012 in a three-day-long celebration they dubbed 'Wedfest'. Since then, she has changed her name from Dawn Porter in honour of her new husband.
