Britney Spears and her longtime love Sam Asghari have made things official, tying the knot in Los Angeles on Thursday afternoon, surrounded by their loved ones. The singer walked down the aisle in a custom Versace creation which was personally designed for her by Donatella Versace.

The Italian designer said that she had "a lot of fun" creating the gown for Spears, who has long been a supporter of the fashion house. She also created three more custom dresses for the bride, who wore them throughout the celebrations.


"I wish them the best, they’re amazing together, I’m so happy for them," she told Access Hollywood as she was interviewed on her way to the wedding, adding that it was "a lot of fun, a lot of emotion" to create the dress for Spears.

In one of her Instagram captions, she added: "The most beautiful newlyweds. Since we first met, Britney has always had a very special place in my heart. Seeing her free, happy, and now getting married puts a smile on my face."

"Designing Britney and Sam’s wedding outfits came naturally to me. A tremendous amount of love was poured into every detail. Together with our atelier, we created a gown and tuxedo that exudes elegance and glamour. They look just perfect together! Congratulations, thank you for the most magical day yesterday."

In the official photographs, which were taken by Kevin Ostajewski and shared by various guests, the dress can be seen to have an off-the-shoulder cap sleeve, a portrait neckline and a deep V-shaped slit up the leg. The gown was crafted in a delicate white silk cady and had a stream of pearl buttons that ran down the back.

Spears added a romantic cathedral-length veil and sparkling jewellery by Stephanie Gottlieb, while her make-up was courtesy of Charlotte Tilbury.

Spears herself took to Instagram to share a sweet video from the day, captioning it: "Fairytales are real". In it, she can be seen travelling the short distance from her home to the garden ceremony in a horse-drawn carriage, covered in greenery and pink flowers. The same flowers could then be seen adorning the spectacular floral alter where the couple said their vows.

One thing we know for sure is that the gown was months in the making. The singer revealed back in November that Donatella was working on her wedding dress when she uploaded a series of images to Instagram – which have since been deleted – while she also shared images back in March of herself posing with the designer and Asghari, who commented on the image: "Versacney".

Spears has a long history with Versace, wearing the house for various red-carpet and on-stage appearances over the years, while she has always maintained a great friendship with Donatella personally. The designer was outwardly supportive of the #FreeBritney movement, which saw Spears finally removed from her conservatorship.

Many details about the big day are still being kept under wraps, but other famous faces in attendance included Paris Hilton and her mother Kathy Hilton, Madonna, Selena Gomez and Drew Barrymore, who all continue to share snippets of the big day on their social media.
