Clementine MacNeice married her longtime love Jamie in a stunning ceremony at Kilshane House in Co. Tipperary earlier this month.

The celebrity stylist stunned in an all-lace gown, which featured an open back detail.

The couple planned their big day in just a few months, as they only got engaged back in June.

Their wedding was attended by a host of well-known faces, including Clementine’s best friend and social media star James Patrice – who was her Man of Honour.

The guest list also included influencers Tara O’Farrell, Mark Rogers, and Aimee Connolly.

Niamh De Brún and TJ Reid

After postponing their nuptials twice due to the coronavirus pandemic, Niamh de Brún and Kilkenny hurler TJ Reid finally tied the knot at the lavish Adare Manor in Co. Limerick last week.

The couple got engaged in March 2019, when TJ proposed to Niamh in Cobh, Co. Cork – where they met almost four years prior.

Niamh and TJ were originally set to wed last December, but due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, they pushed their wedding back to February 2021.

The pair later decided to postpone their wedding until November, following another wave of Covid cases in Ireland around Christmas time.

Jess Redden and Rob Kearney

Jess Redden and Rob Kearney got married at the five star Trump International Hotel in Doonbeg, Co. Clare earlier this month.

The couple’s wedding venue, which is a stunning beachside golf resort, was bought by Donald Trump back in 2014 for a reported €9 million.

Jess and Rob were initially set to wed in June 2021, but brought their wedding date forward to November of last year, after Jess’ dad Brian became ill.

The influencer was hoping her father would get to walk her down the aisle, but he sadly died in September 2020 at the age of 70 – following a battle with prostate cancer.

Instead, her beloved uncle walked her down the aisle before she and Rob exchanged vows.

Maeve Madden married her fiancé Andrew Selby in an intimate ceremony in London earlier this month.

The couple legally tied the knot in front of a small group of close friends and family, before hosting their big wedding bash in 2022.

The newlyweds spent their wedding night at the luxurious Corinthia Hotel in London.

Maeve announced her engagement at the start of January, after her partner proposed while they were out hiking.

The news shocked her Instagram followers, as many had no idea she was even in a relationship.

At the time, the Newry native revealed they had been together for three years, but she chose to keep their relationship private.

Julie Jay and Fred Cooke

Julie Jay and Fred Cooke got married in Dingle, Co. Kerry earlier this month.

The couple tied the knot in front of about 80 family and friends, and held their wedding reception at Benners Hotel.
