Charlene and her long-term partner Adam Rothenberg married in Castle Leslie with just a handful of guests in January 2021.

Over a year later Charlene and Adam returned to the beautiful spot in her native Monaghan with their loved ones in 2022.

The pictures she shared showcased just how many people the couple wanted to have with them as they tied the knot.

The actress had six flower girls alone, all dressed in beautiful white lace-embellished dresses for her big day.

Charlene opted for a slinky white floor length gown designed by Simone Rocha to mark her wedding day “part deux” with a halter neck style and subtle lace detailing around the hem.

Congrats to the proud parents.
