My Big Day: James &Amp; Steven

Sunshine and roses, palm trees and Prada - was there ever a more stylish wedding than that of James and Steven?

The couple, who married at The Parker in Palm Springs, California, planned a decadent big day at which the ceremony and reception were covered in the lushest blooms.

While James - originally from the UK - wore a Gucci tux jacket, vintage trousers and Prada shoes, his husband Steven, a producer who works in LA, opted for head-to-toe Gucci. And the result? The sharpest grooms you've ever seen.

After an emotional ceremony and a laughter-filled reception, also at The Parker, guests hit the dance floor and didn't leave all night.

Although he adored every bit of his wedding day, James - a production designer who also works in LA - said "coordinating 70 english friends and family members unfamiliar with California" was a challenge.

His advice to anyone else about to get married? "Remember to enjoy every step of the planning and build up - it's all over before you know it. Enjoy every second!"
