These are the pictures of Audrey Fitzpatrick's wedding to Dave Mahon.
Audrey, mother of missing teenager Amy Fitzpatrick, has married the man accused of murdering her son.
Audrey Mahon married her long-term partner Dave Mahon in a brief civil ceremony in a Dublin hotel yesterday afternoon. The couple got engaged and were making plans to marry eight years ago but put them on hold when her daughter Amy (15) disappeared close to their home in Spain on January 1, 2008.
According to The Star this morning, they got married in a 15-minute ceremony yesterday. Mr Mahon will go on trial next year, charged with the murder of Audrey's son.
Pictures from the event show the happy couple.
Audrey is wearing a traditional white wedding dress while Dave is wears a kilt as part of his outfit.

Audrey's son Dean died following a stabbing incident in North Dublin in July 2013.
Mr Mahon yesterday wore cuff links with images of Amy and Dean.
"They are part of us," Mr Mahon said after the low-key ceremony in Swords. "We are thinking of them both today, as we always do. And we wish both of them were here today."
Audrey has said in the past she had originally planned for daughter Amy to be her bridesmaid, and for son Dean to give her away.
