They tied the knot in a stunning Turkish ceremony last month.
And since Kate Wright became Mrs Rio Ferdinand, she and her new husband have been littering social media with insights into their big day, in which they were treated to a live performance from Ashanti and a beach backdrop.
The former TOWIE star, 28, looked sensational on the big day in a risqué corseted gown before going for a wholly more pared-back look later in the night when she changed into a maxi skirt and crop top – making for an edgy choice for a bride as they lived it up with their nearest and dearest.

In one hilarious video, Rio is seen getting low – however he admitted he was struggling with the dance due to his age, as he penned: ‘Should I really be doing this at my age?’
Dancing played quite the integral part of their big day, as the couple were rocking out to various types of music – including a saxophonist, a live band and eventually the R&B icon.
Prior to the music bonanza, the wedding breakfast was held on a stunning beachfront location.
Earlier in the week, Kate shared a snap depicting Rio‘s sons Lorenz, 13, and Tate, 11, who he shares alongside daughter Tia, eight, with late wife Rebecca Ellison, walking her down the aisle during their nuptials.

She added a caption reading: ‘There were so many special moments at our wedding ….. but this is one I will never forget #proud #myboys’, shortly before Rio shared her post and admitted the moment ‘warmed his heart’.
Kate and Rio became engaged in November following a romantic proposal in Dubai, where he popped the question in front of the three kids.
The newlyweds tied the knot in front of family, friends and former TOWIE stars Lydia and Debbie Bright at the end of last month. Speaking about the moment his boys walked Kate down the aisle, Rio told OK! Magazine: ‘I cried as soon as the day started. Seeing Tia walk up the aisle before Kate set me off. It was just so emotional…
‘There was just no going back on the emotion, that’s why I had to keep my shades on. Seeing Tate and Lorenz walk Kate down the aisle was particularly poignant and we wouldn’t have wanted to do it any other way… They were so proud and they couldn’t wait to do that, they felt important’.
