Speaking to Hello! Magazine about the big day, Dubliner Emmett, who also starred in The Fall, said, “It’s something I’ll never forget. Everyone got behind the wedding with such love that it was overwhelming at times.”

Claire’s dress for the big day was made by Claire Mischevani, and was a mix between chic and bohemian style. The designer opened up to the magazine and said, “Claire was torn, so we had to come up with a design that would encompass both looks.

“It took hundreds of hours to construct and hand-embellish the gown, but Claire was thrilled with the results and so were we.

Congrats to the happy couple on this gorgeous news, we can’t wait to see some more baby pictures!
