'I was not a Pinterest bride!' - Emily Ratajkowski reveals why she shunned the 'glamorous' wedding

'People don't end up enjoying their wedding as they are so stressed by the planning and having this 'moment''

When Emily Ratajkowski tied the knot earlier this year in a surprise wedding, she shocked fans who barely even realised she and her new husband were an item.

And despite being one of the world's most in-demand models, she admits that when it came to her wedding day, she didn't want any of the 'fuss' usually associated with being a bride.

The 27-year-old model married independent movie producer-and-actor Sebastian Bear-McClard earlier this year after a whirlwind two-month romance and has now revealed that for her 'big day', she simply wanted everything to be as easy going as possible.

In an interview with Glamour, Emily admitted: "I was not a Pinterest bride! I do so much glam, I do fittings once a week so for me it was just so nice to throw on a Zara suit that I loved, do my own hair and make-up. I always feel the most confident when I do it myself - and not have to have the fussiness of being a bride."

The 'Gone Girl' actress opted for an intimate courthouse ceremony at New York City Hall with only a handful of her closest friends in attendance, and although she plans on having a larger ceremony to celebrate their union at some point, Emily just wanted her wedding day to revolve around herself and her husband.

The sultry brunette said: "I love a party and I plan on having that moment, but people don't end up enjoying their wedding as they are so stressed by the planning and having this 'moment'. I really wanted this to just be me and him which was really special ... before the world found out we had four hours of just us."

Although Emily sported a simple mustard yellow co-coordinating trouser suit from Zara on her big day, the 'I Feel Pretty' actress does love dressing up for work and on the red carpet.

Her most "excessive" fashion habit is that she loves wearing expensive wigs.

She said: "My obsession with wigs is the most excessive thing about me - an everyday goal is the wig! Luckily my hair stylist has quite the collection - she loves a wig almost as much as I do.

"I can't cut my hair, and I love my natural hair but there are only so many things you can do with it. It's like throwing on a hat!"
