Meghan Markle opted for a dress by Stella McCartney for her evening wedding reception at Frogmore House.

The 'Suits' star - who tied the knot with Prince Harry on Saturday afternoon - looked stunning in a high neck gown by the British designer as she headed with her husband to the intimate reception at the nearby Frogmore House.

A statement from Kensington Palace reads: "The Bride's evening dress is designed by Stella McCartney and is a bespoke lily white high neck gown made of silk crepe. The Bride is wearing shoes from Aquazurra made in silky satin, with nude mesh, with soles painted baby blue. Ms. Markle's hair has been styled for the Evening Reception by George Northwood."

For her wedding, which took place at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle earlier this afternoon, Meghan opted for a gown by Clare Waight Keller, the Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givenchy.

A statement from Kensington Palace shared at the time: "Ms. Markle expressed the wish of having all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her on her journey through the ceremony. Ms. Waight Keller designed a veil representing the distinctive flora of each Commonwealth country united in one spectacular floral composition. The veil is held in place by Queen Mary's diamond bandeau tiara, lent to Ms. Markle by The Queen. The diamond bandeau is English and was made in 1932, with the brooch dating from 1893."

Meghan worked closely with Ms Waight Keller on the dress design.

The palace added: "After meeting Ms. Waight Keller in early 2018, Ms. Markle chose to work with her for her timeless and elegant aesthetic, impeccable tailoring, and relaxed demeanour. Ms. Markle also wanted to highlight the success of a leading British talent who has now served as the creative head of three globally influential fashion houses - Pringle of Scotland, Chloé, and now Givenchy. Ms. Markle and Ms. Waight Keller worked closely together on the design. 

The dress epitomises a timeless minimal elegance referencing the codes of the iconic House of Givenchy and showcasing the expert craftsmanship of its world-renowned Parisian couture atelier founded in 1952."
