Jamie Vardy's bride stunned guests at her Peckforton Castle wedding yesterday by shunning the usual WAG-style gown.

Instead of opting for a huge garish dress like something out of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, the new Mrs Rebekah Vardy chose a conservative couture gown designed by Caroline Castigliano.

A source told our sister paper The Mirror: "The dress was actually quite classic and conservative, not a usual revealing WAG style.

"Becky has great taste and she looked beautiful on her big day as she walked down the aisle."

She also chose the designer to create beautiful dresses for her four bridesmaids.

Caroline, whose flagship store is in London's Knightsbridge, said before the wedding: "It was an absolute pleasure to work with Becky on her gowns.

"On top of being an incredibly beautiful bride, she's a lovely person.

"I wish her the most happy and fantastic life with Jamie Vardy - he's a very lucky man."

Becky walked down the aisle in the handcrafted figure-hugging dress featuring an integral corset and her look was finished with a couture veil.

Becky's bridesmaid dresses were made to complement the bride's outfit and were created from silk marocain crepe in a fit and flare style with low back details and crossover straps.

The stunning brunette, 34, married the Leicester City star at a lavish ceremony at the castle in Tarporley on Wednesday, and One Direction's Louis Tomlinson was among the celebrity guests at the bash.

Louis was spotted arriving at Peckforton Castle alongside his girlfriend, US actress Danielle Campbell.

The source added: "He looked as if he was having a great time and got involved in karaoke to sing to Becky and Jamie."

Tinchy Stryder, Westlife singer Shane Filan, 2013 X Factor winner Sam Bailey and Kasabian’s Serge Pizzorno were among the other musical guests invited along to the big day.

Vardy, 29, had already postponed his nuptials three times to avoid clashing with his footballing commitments but will miss England’s friendly against Australia on Friday.

He previously said: "It will be a very quiet night on Wednesday. Obviously I hope all the guests have a good time but I will have a quiet one."
