It’s been a huge year for weddings on the Irish celebrity showbiz scene. From glamorous affairs, to intimate ceremonies, we take a look back at the top five Irish celeb weddings that caught our eye this year.
1. Aoibhin Garrihy and John Burke
Aoibhin married her longterm love John in Co. Clare last September. They tied the knot in Doolin and celebrated with friends and family at The Armada Hotel, Spanish Point. Her dress was custom made and fitted like a glove. Speaking to VIP Magazine of the exclusive dress Aoibhin said, “It was unchartered waters for me, but the whole process has been really fun, especially being able to say, well hows about a little bit longer here, a little bit shorter there, a bit of tweaking and pulling. Just to have that relationship with the designer has been really special.”
2. Jamie Heaslip and Sheena O’Buachalla
Rugby ace Jamie Heaslip married his true love Sheena O’Buachalla back in August. The pair said ‘I do’ at Newman University Church, St. Stephen’s Green in Dublin, surrounded by 200 guests. Some of those in attendance were Jordi Murphy, Rob Kearney and Devon Toner. The after party took place in King’s Inn, and went on until the wee hours of the morning!
3. Jenny Greene and Kelly Keogh
In June of this year 2FM DJ Jenny Greene married her partner Kelly Keogh at Wineport Lodge in Athlone surrounded by their loved ones. The beautiful brides celebrated for two days, with the dj calling it “the best weekend of our lives.”
4. Alan Hughes and Karl Broderick
TV3’s Alan Hughes married his long-time love Karl Broderick in an intimate ceremony last September. There were only two people at the official wedding, because all their loved ones attended the couple’s civil ceremony 15 years ago. Speaking of the special day Alan said, “23 years ago today we met…15 years later we had our civil ceremony …and because the Irish people said ‘YES’, we can say ‘I Do’. I couldn’t be prouder marrying this gorgeous man.”
5. Amanda Byram and Julian Okines
In April of this year tv presenter Amanda tied the knot with Julian Okines at a beautiful ceremony in London. Celeb pals Yvonne Connolly and Laura Whitmore attended the nuptials, but the couple kept it quite low key. They then married in a second wedding while honeymooning in the Maldives, and pics from both ceremonies were featured in VIP Magazine. The fitness fanatic said that she feels “blessed” to have found Julian.
