A Midsummer Dream

Vogue have finally published the photos we have been waiting for... and what stunningly beautiful photos they are! Mario Testino's soft-focus shots of Kate Moss and Jamie Hince's wedding day capture all the magic and romance of the occasion - appearing more like scenes from A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Kate herself wanted to recreate the decadence of the roaring '20s, and tasked her long-time friend John Galliano with the job of designing the all important dress.

Needless to say it has been a difficult year for the designer since his arrest back in February, but he told US Vogue how work on Kate's dress had helped him: 'She dared me to be John Galliano again. I couldn't pick up a pencil. It's been my creative rehab.' The exquisite outcome was inspired by the Jazz Age photographs of novelist Zelda Fitzgerald. The whole effect is quite simply beautiful.
