For one of the world's most-photographed women, the 37-year-old was remarkably camera-shy as she married The Kills guitarist Hince in the Cotswolds, a picturesque chain of rolling hills in southwest England.
The wedding took over the village of Southrop, with roads closed and a large police presence.
Moss wore a sleeveless ivory dress, a long veil and a floral headband, while Hince wore a grey suit.
Moss was nearly upstaged by fellow south London supermodel Naomi Campbell, who arrived just after the bride and had to rush to overtake her, according to a local resident.
The newlyweds were cheered on by locals as they left the church for pictures outside. Mario Testino, who took the engagement shots for Prince William and Catherine, was in charge of the photography.
With the Rolling Stones blaring from the sound system, the couple were driven away in a Rolls-Royce to her nearby home, where a marquee has been set up.
Guests included actors Jude Law and Sadie Frost, designer Stella McCartney, Topshop chain store boss Philip Green and Mick Jones from punk band The Clash.
