Cynthia Nixon has revealed the inspiration behind her green coloured wedding dress.

The actress described the thought process that went into deciding on which designer she would like to make her gown.

The Sex and the City star explained how important it was for every detail to be perfect on the big day as she had waited three years before she could wed her life partner Christine Marinoni.

"I knew I wanted Carolina Herrera, because I've had so much luck wearing her dresses in the past and they know my body so well," Cynthia told the British edition of ELLE magazine.

"Carolina - or rather Mrs Herrera said, 'You need to get a dress with a capital D. Even if it's not pouffy or white, there's a certain level of ceremony'."

Cynthia continued to discuss how she came to choose her unconventional pale green gown for her day.

The New Yorker, who starred as Miranda in the popular TV series, explained why she came to the conclusion that green would be the shade for her.

"I decided on green by a process of elimination: I already knew I didn't want white. I didn't want red - that would have been shocking. I didn't want black - that would have been shocking. Maybe it was also years of playing redheaded Miranda: even though in real life my hair is blonde, green has become my go-to," she revealed.

"And this particular shade - so light it borders on yellow - was especially apt, since it's the colour of early spring and, no matter how long you've been together, a wedding is a certain kind of beginning."
