Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas celebrated their second nuptials in the South of France last month, saying their vows at a French chateau surrounded by family and friends.

Shortly afterwards, the bride gave us a proper look at her wedding dress; a sleek custom-made Louis Vuitton dress by Nicolas Ghesquière.

The gown featured a full skirt in silk gazar and delicate floral-embroidered tulle, with cap shoulders, full-length sleeves, a draped waist and plunging V-neckline.

The gown took more than 350 hours to create at Louis Vuitton’s Paris atelier, and required many hours of embroidery by hand.

"For Turner’s dress, more than 10 embroiderers worked for 1,050 hours on the 14 meters of tulle, covered with a digitally designed pattern of more than 650,000 stitches," reports WWD. "Each panel was embroidered with 50,400 crystal beads and 50,400 white beads."

Ghesquière shared a behind-the-scenes photo from Turner’s bridal fitting on Instagram, captioning the post: “Absolute beaut @sophiet.”

His post showcased the rear of the gown, which featured an open back and a delicate veil, which itself required 48 hours of embroidery.

The second ceremony was attended by friends and family, including Nick and Kevin Jonas, Priyanka Chopra, Maisie Williams and Ashley Graham. In an attempt to keep the wedding private, the couple enforced a phone and social media ban.

Their French ceremony wasn’t the first time they’d walked down the aisle together. Turner and Jonas first tied the knot in Las Vegas, after the Billboard Music Awards, where Turner wore a white Bevza jumpsuit.
