Kate used to be an events organiser so she certainly will have the knack for creating a special big day.

But the 28-year-old said she isn't rushing her plans. She insists that the little details are more important to her than the grand gestures.

Kate told OK! magazine: "I have started planning the wedding very slowly. I do think about all the small things, which I think will help make the day even more special. It's more about those little details rather than the big things."

She added that she and 40-year-old Rio share everything equally in their life.

When asked if she is taking the reigns when it comes to wedding planning, Kate explained: "Rio and I are very equal. We share control on everything we do in life."

She said: "I hoped I'd get married at some stage, so obviously I'm very happy and excited about that.

"It hasn't panned out exactly how I imagined when I was a kid. Like most young girls I had the typical fairy tale in mind, but this is my own fairy tale. I can't complain at all. I feel very lucky."
