The bride – who is known for her portrayal of Abi Webster in the soap – ditched white for her two big days, instead opting for an unconventional blue outfit.

Eleven years earlier, Princess Charlene also made her ‘something blue’ her choice of outfit, which was created by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. For her civil ceremony on 1 July 2011 inside the Prince’s Palace’s Throne Room, she stepped out in a strapless chiffon aquamarine jumpsuit with palazzo pants and a lace-trimmed single-breasted jacket, which she later removed at the Jean Michel Jarre concert that evening.
