Always setting the trends, she actually wore a coat-style gown that was decorated with over 325,000 pearls and crystal beads – some of which lined her V-neck, cuffs and skirt while others dotted across the fabric.

We especially loved her incredible jewellery. Sophie wore a full-length veil made of silk tulle and crystals, which was held in place by her beautiful diamond tiara.

Best of all, she finished her look with a black and white pearl necklace and matching drop earrings, which were a wedding gift from Prince Edward. The royal had them made by Asprey and Garrard, who was also responsible for Sophie's engagement ring.
