They came, they stunned, they said "I will!"

Prince William and Kate Middleton officially became husband and wife at Westminster Abbey on Friday -- taking on the new titles of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

After making an immediately-iconic entrance in a custom-designed wedding gown by Alexander McQueen's Sarah Burton with her father Michael and sister Pippa at her side, the Duchess, 29, went through the doors of Westminster Abbey.

Radiant in her gown (which featured a two meters, 70 centimeter train), Middleton was greeted by her groom, 28, for the first time. "You look beautiful," Duke William mouthed to her.

After walking down the aisle with her father, she and William stood at the altar as the Archbishop of Canterbury conducted the simple ceremony.

"I will," William replied.

"I will," the bride said.

After William placed the ring on his love's finger, the Archbishop declared: "I pronounce that they be man and wife together."
