Immodesty Blaize, 36, married Gregory Gomond, 30, in Cathédrale De Monaco followed by a reception at Cap Estel in Èze, France, on 13 September 2014. She says:

"I'm a burlesque dancer and Greg is PA to Prince Albert of Monaco - we met after I performed in front of the prince!

Monaco law only recognises civil ceremonies, so we first had a civil marriage followed by a blessing in the stunning cathedral. The best bit - I got to wear two amazing dresses!

For my work, I tend to wear lots of corsets and feathers so I wanted my wedding dress to be more 'bridal', less 'showgirl'. For the Catholic blessing, I chose a Spanish-style, French lace dress with a lace cape to cover my décolletage.

Cap Estel had breathtaking views and gardens for our reception. As well as being very private, its art deco style was so gorgeous we didn't have to do much with the decor. The hotel also has a Michelin-starred chef - which was great as a few of the guests were top chefs themselves.

We kept our palette simple, using just creams and pinks - I wanted to create the romantic, timeless feel of a Fellini film.

Rather than have favours, we filled baskets with pretty lace hand-held fans - the flower girls then handed these out.

My 'something borrowed' was a Monaco souvenir magnet hidden in my bouquet.

My top tip: Make sure that you have a co-ordinator on the actual day - even if that means an incredibly organised friend."
