Eva Longoria's wedding dress 'made with love' by best friend Victoria Beckham

Eva Longoria has spoken with warmth about the dress best friend Victoria Beckham designed for her wedding, saying it was "made with love".

The Desperate Housewives star, 41, married Jose 'Pepe' Antonio Baston, the president of Televisa, in Mexico on May 21.

Beckham created Longoria's silk crepe gown for the ceremony, as well as another prom dresses for the post-dinner celebrations and a third for a civil ceremony the day before.

The former Spice Girl, 42, was also a witness at the civil ceremony.

During an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine, Longoria explained how she came to have "a Victoria Beckham weekend".

She said: "I asked Victoria to do my dress because I wanted it to be special and made with love - and I knew that Victoria would make it with love.

"Victoria was one of my witnesses too. She signed the paper that says I was here - so it was a Victoria Beckham weekend."

The actress-turned-producer added: "She was the best, sweetest person to have there on this day.

"Not only did she do my wedding uk prom dresses but she's one of my best friends so for her to be there was so special."

The two women became close when the Beckhams lived in Los Angeles while David was playing for Major League Soccer team LA Galaxy.

The weekend of celebrations started with the couple's civil ceremony at the home of the owner of Mexican multimedia company Televisa.

The following day, another ceremony took place in the home of the bride and groom.

"We wanted to get married in our house and do something very intimate," Longoria told Hello!

"We have both been married before and we know the wedding is not the marriage so we wanted to pick a place so it wouldn't be about the event, but about celebrating our love.

"Now we are looking forward to the marriage part. We're just so excited to be Mr and Mrs Baston."

Alongside Victoria and David Beckham, guests included Melanie Griffith and Ricky Martin.#FormatImgID_0#

Desperate Housewives star Vanessa Williams sang Save The Best For Last, a top three UK hit in 1992.

This is the third marriage for Longoria, who was previously wed to US actor Tyler Christopher from 2002 to 2004 and basketball star Tony Parker from 2007 to 2011.

Baston's three children from a previous marriage were given important roles on the day.

Longoria said: "Pepe's two daughters and son were the only ones in the wedding party.

"His daughters walked down the aisle with me and the kids all held the rings."

She added: "They were part of the ceremony, of course, because I'm not just marrying Pepe, I'm marrying his whole family.

"For me it was so important that their happiness was at the centre of this celebration and it was. They were so excited and happy."
