One month after the intimate wedding of Sophie Hunter and Benedict Cumberbatch, everyone finally gets to see what the bride wore on her big day.

The stunning Valentino gown was photographed by Annie Leibovitz for Vogue magazine ahead of her wedding day, and thanks to the post made on the designer's Instagram page, everyone can now see the beautiful creation in all its glory.

The 37-year-old theatre director, who married the Sherlock actor on February 14, 2015, and is also pregnant with their first child together, looked amazing on her big day in a gorgeous bridal gown.

The Instagram post was captioned: "Beautiful Sophie Hunter with Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli prepping her couture dress for her March wedding to Benedict Cumberbatch. #magicmoment #sophiehunter #benedictcumberbatch photographed by #AnnieLeibovitz."

The couture dress was unconventional, created out of silver lace rather than the typical bridal shades of white, champagne or ivory.

Though she was in the early days of her pregnancy at the time, her growing baby bump was clearly visible in the empire-line dress, which also features a flattering high neckline and long sleeves, and a long, flowing train.

The beautiful gown was specially designed by Sophie herself, and Valentino designers, Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chuiri, and - surprisingly - it was made in just three months, despite dresses like this often taking as long as six months to create.

The unique dress looked absolutely perfect on Sophie, whose secret wedding with her 38-year-old man took place on Valentine's Day on the Isle of Wight.

"It feels very much of nature, and it's so detailed and extraordinary that I'm still trying to get my head around how beautiful it is," Sophie added about her love of the one-of-a-kind garment in the interview accompanying the picture.

In January, the couple announced that Sophie is pregnant with their first child, and they spent the next month on the red carpets at the various ceremonies and events during the hectic awards season in Los Angeles and London.

Amid all of this, they managed to have their wedding in secret: Benedict and Sophie married at 12th century St. Peter & St. Paul Church, near Brighstone on the Isle of Wight prior to their lavish reception at the manor on the Saturday afternoon of Valentine's Day.

The couple then enjoyed a post-awards season honeymoon in Tahiti and Bora Bora.
