Serena Williams felt like a ''princess and superwoman'' on her wedding day.

The tennis star tied the knot with Alexis Ohanian last week and credits Vogue magazine's Anna Wintour for making her feel like a superstar on her big day.

She wrote on Instagram: ''For the first dress When Anna Wintour asked me what I wanted to wear I said ''a cape'' I just want to wear a cape'' she said: ''well Sarah Burton with @alexandermcqueen is the one for you.'' Thanks Anna. Thanks Sarah. I felt like a princess and superwoman all at once @mistadubb @ericamelissa_ (sic)''

Serena shunned the traditional heels and decided to wear trainers under her wedding gown.

Sharing a video of how they were glammed up for the occasion, she wrote: ''Meet Michelle @merakimishell the amazing woman behind my incredible @nike Cortez shoes? Yes I wore them down the asile! Comfort for this bride! Thanks Michelle!!! (sic)''

It comes after a source revealed Serena and Alexis' wedding was an ''intimate'' affair with all their family and friends.

A source said: ''It was a really intimate wedding. You could see everything Serena loves in the details. All the guests were her close family and friends and people she has known for a long time. There was a lot of love in the room.''

Serena and Alexis' 200 guests were treated to a whole host of food and drink including Chinese and New Orleans-style food trucks and a Casamigos bar which served margaritas and other tequila cocktails. Creative Edge supplied the food stations from four corners of the globe including Italian, as the couple first met in Rome; Southern-style, which is Serena's favourite and Armenian as it is Alexis' heritage. There was also a salad wall as well as a station just for steak.
