    Fans have been treated to a first look at the nuptials after images were shared on British Vogue's Instagram account. The full exclusive coverage is due to be featured in the July issue of Vogue.

    The former Canadian beauty queen wore two custom Vera Wang gowns: an off-shoulder A-line gown for the ceremony and later changed to a beaded V-neck style dress for the reception.

    The dapper groom wore a bespoke suit from British-Ghanaian designer Ozwald Boateng.

    The couple got engaged last year February after Elba, 46, got on bended knee in front of guests attending the screening of his directorial debut of Yardie at the Rio Cinema in London.

    The black tie wedding was the second of three days of planned celebrations. According to reports in Vogue, friends and family attended a "colours of the Souk"–themed dinner the evening before.
