Former X Factor winner Leona, 34, wore a full-length white gown by Israeli designer Mira Zwillinger before changing into a blush pink embellished tulle gown for dinner and a crystal jumpsuit for a reception that continued until 7am and featured a drag queen and tattoo artist.
Reflecting on her magical wedding, she told Hello! magazine: ‘It was just the most beautiful day, full of love. It was so special to be able to bring together everyone we love. There were a lot of tears.’

Jauch, who is a German-born creative director, said he saw it as a sign from his father Lutz, who died three weeks before the wedding.
He said: ‘There couldn’t have been more of a sign. Dad made sure we all knew he was there.’
Lewis had invited X Factor boss Simon Cowell to the wedding but he was busy filming Britain’s Got Talent.
