Aussie model Erin McNaught suffered an 11th-hour wardrobe malfunction just before walking down the aisle to wed her British musician hubby Example, it has been revealed.

McNaught reportedly wore a custom-made Steven Khalil gown for the ceremony, which was held at Deux Belettes guesthouse in NSW in May.

Now Example, aka Elliot Gleave, has revealed there was a couple of moments of stress before the couple declared 'I do'.

He told Britain's Daily Star on Wednesday his new wife suffered a major dress malfunction just as she was beginning her walk to the altar.

"Her dress came apart at the seams. I came down asking 'where has she gone?'"

McNaught had to be hastily sewn back into her wedding dress by her mother in an embarrassing episode, which threatened to put a damper on the couple's big day.

"I didn't think she'd done a runner, but she was getting her dress sewn. It's every woman's nightmare," Gleave said.

"That threw her a bit for the initial walk. After that the whole day was lots of laughter and jokes all round."
