Kate Upton marries in stunningly lavish Italian ceremony

KATE Upton has shared intimate details of her fairytale wedding dress for the very first time, releasing never-before-seen photos of the big day.

In the latest issue of US Vogue magazine, the model and actor - who wed US baseball star Justin Verlander last month - revealed they chose Tuscany in Italy for the venue because it was one of the first places they holidayed together.

"It's extremely romantic and will always be a special place for us," Upton told Vogue.

"We fell in love with the Rosewood Castiglion Del Bosco resort because of its amazing history and incredible scenery."

 

She also revealed details of her dress design, explaining that she took inspiration from the Italian venue.

"For my ceremony dress, I had the pleasure of collaborating with the fantastic team at Valentino," Upton said.

"They are the best at creating delicate, beautiful lace and details, and their Italian heritage kept the fashion and feel authentic to our venue. The design process was extremely collaborative, so I was able to really include my personal style and create my dream dress."

For the reception, the bride swapped her traditional gown for an embroidered evening dress, made by Christy Rilling Studio.

"I wanted a dress that I could have fun in, but that still brought the glamour," she said.

The pair also revealed during an appearance on The Tonight Show recently that they'd almost missed their own wedding.

They'd booked their wedding for the first weekend in November, but Verlander was called up to play in Game 7 of the World Series on November 2 in the US.

And, of course, his fiancee had to be there to support him.

As they told Jimmy Fallon, their guests all arrived before them.

"Everybody is in Italy! Everyone is at the venue! We had an event that night and everyone's texting us, saying your wedding is so pretty. Wish you were here!" Upton told the host. Her new husband added: "We got taken around our wedding via FaceTime."
