She is one of Australia’s most sought-after fashion designers, known for her trademark backless dress style and ultra-feminine aesthetic.

So it was no surprise Amy Taylor pulled out all the stops when it came to styling her own wedding last month.

The designer, whose label Amy Taylor Collection is often worn by contestants on The Bachelor, wed New Zealand-born boxing champion Junior Talipeau at a star-studded ceremony at Coral Sea Resort in Airlie Beach, Queensland, on April 9.

The formalwear mogul, who wore four different wedding gowns throughout the day, was her own best advertisement as she and Junior exchanged vows on the beach.

The dress Amy wore as she walked down the aisle featured a plunging, beaded neckline with an open back and a ruffled tulle skirt.

Her long blonde hair cascaded down in mermaid curls, while a gold tiara and matching drop earrings added a regal touch to her bohemian look.
