She told OK! magazine: "I got all the bridesmaids a little box with a few gifts and Tia (one of Rio's children from his previous marriage to the late Rebecca Ellison) was crying her eyes out."

But it was one of Rio's gifts that made her shed a tear.

"Rio also got me a book that I was given in the morning and on each page it said something that he loved about me," she explained.

"We all read it together and we were all crying. Tia turned to me and said she never thought she’d be this happy and I was gone with emotion from then."

The couple, who were married at the D Maris Bay Hotel in Marmaris, shared the first images from their wedding in OK! Magazine.

Kate looked beautiful in a corseted ivory gown with a fishtail skirt and a sweetheart neckline.

Meanwhile, Rio looked dapper in a black three-piece suit.

Speaking to the publication, former footballer Rio revealed he broke down in tears when he saw Kate and his three children walk down the aisle.
