Superstar's wedding

Sports superstar Serena Williams tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in a star-studded wedding in New Orleans earlier this month.

Beyonce, Eva Longoria, Ciara and Kim Kardashian were all present at the 'Beauty and the Beast themed' bash, where the tennis ace married her millionaire fiancé in a strictly private ceremony at the city's Contemporary Arts Cente.

Security was tight on the day - an entire block was reported to have been closed down for the A-listers' arrivals - and while some paparazzi managed to snap some of the guests as they descended on the jazz capital, Serena in her wedding dress eluded the surrounding lenses.

However Serena has shared a personal moment from the day which shows her gorgeous Alexander McQueen gown in all its glory, and fashion bible Vogue has revealed other highlights from the day - including a gorgeous family portrait of husband, wife and new baby girl.

The bride's extravagant princess-style ball gown features strapless sleeves, and was crafted by Sarah Burton - a designer most people now associate with the creation of Kate Middleton's stunning long sleeved lace wedding dress.

For the ceremony, the stylish star wore a striking pearl-encrusted sheer cape, simple matching diamond droplet earrings and diamond bracelet and wore her hair in a side chignon, which she topped off with a long veil.

Groom Alexis went chic in black tie and wore a suit by Georgio Armani. For the ceremony he donned a midnight blue velvet jacket and changed into a more traditional black jacket for the reception.

Serena's bridesmaids wore mismatched gowns, with two maids in gold beaded gowns (and one in a jumpsuit) and maid of honour Venus in a long white custom-made Galia Lahav gown with a sheer deep V-neck.

For the reception the bride changed into a cute short number, which featured feathers on the skirt. Serena's third dress if the day allowed to dance and party to celebrate the occasion. 

Later she donned some sparkly more like tennis shoes while the Disney theme continued with a ride in a Carousel. 

To complete the wedding ensemble mummy Williams also wore a stunning cape while baby Alexis Olympia charmed everyone. The couple's daughter donned a tiny ballgown which featured pearl and stone beading on the sleeves and around the waist. It had a big bow at the back and was worn with tiny knitted pumps with rhinestone detail.
