Lovebirds Ronan Keating and Storm Uechtritz will finally tie the knot today in a lavish ceremony in Edinburgh. The smitten pair were spotted arriving at Waverley train station on Friday after they spent some rare time apart to celebrate their hen and stag dos with their pals and family.
The Boyzone singer and the stunning Aussie tv producer are expected to hold the glitzy ceremony at Archerfield House, a luxury estate and golf club, where Ronan regularly visits for a round of golf. Storm’s family from Oz have jetted out for the occasion, while Ronan’s children will play a big part in the wedding – his best man is 16-year-old son Jack, Missy, 14, who helped organise Storm’s hen festivities, will be bridesmaid and nine-year-old Ali will be a flower girl.
The pair got engaged in April this year, a month after Ronan’s divorce from his wife of 17 years, Yvonne Keating, was finalised. It will also be Storm’s second marriage, as she wed Sydney financial director Tim Ivers in 2009 before calling it quits in April 2012. The ex-couple are said to have had their first dance to Ronan Keating’s 1999 hit When You Say Nothing At All – how crazy is that!?
Before they walk down the aisle for their big day, which they have signed a €70k deal with Hello! magazine over the exclusive pics, VIP decided to look back on the 5 mushiest moments from ‘Ro & Stormy’, who are well-known for their online PDAs!
Ronan described the moment his girl said ‘yes’ to the big question as “the happiest day of my life”. “Some things in life were always meant to be… feeling blessed beyond words & grateful for having found the love of my life,” Storm sweetly added. The twosome were holidaying in Thailand at the time and revealed their big engagement news in Hello! magazine.
Their soppy Instagram posts
The pair make their love known to their followers and turn up the cheese when paying tribute to one another on their Insta. One of the most romance-filled posts was by Storm on Ronan’s 38th birthday, which she made sure to spoil him for – after organising three cakes, a candle-lit dinner and casino themed party for the singer, she completed her offerings with a heartfelt love letter. “When I first met you @rokeating I noticed that everyone wanted to be your friend (or was your friend!) it didn’t take me long to work out why,’ she wrote. “You give so much to the world around you and your love and warmth is infectious. You make everyone around you smile & laugh, plus you are fair and generous beyond words.
“Happy birthday baba – we’ve now been together 3 years and every day is still as exciting as the first. Your love gives me butterflies and you make me so happy, thank you. Love S x”
Joining Twitter and Snapchat… together!
You know you’re inseparable when you even share social media. Yup, the couple decided to set up ‘Ro and Stormy’, showcasing their lavish lifestyle together by sharing snaps of dining out or their many travels.
Their adorable pug, Aussie <3
HOW cute is this pooch!? Ronan and Storm have admitted that kids are on the cards for them both in the future, but for now, they look after this little ball of fur, Aussie. They welcomed the puppy to their home last year, and Storm even refers to Ronan as ‘Daddy’ when she posts pics of their pet online. He’s even expected to be the ring bearer for the big wedding today – we can’t wait to see the photos of that!
