Brian McFadden and Danni Minogue among the guests at Ronan Keating and Storm Uechtritz’s Scottish wedding
Ronan Keating has wed for the second time in a luxurious ceremony in Scotland attended by several familiar faces including Danni Minogue and Brian McFadden who jetted into Edinburgh for the nuptials.
The former Boyzone star wed his Australian fiancée Storm Uechritz at the exclusive Archerfield House and Golf Resort just outside the Scottish city yesterday afternoon in a ceremony attended by Ronan’s three children Jack (16), Missy (14) and Ali (9).
Photos of the bride and groom have yet to emerge as the pair have signed an exclusive deal with Hello! Magazine however guests including Ronan’s former Boyzone bandmates Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham were all pictured outside the venue.
The luxurious venue, which costs more than €9,000 per night to book, is a favourite of Ronan’s and he even hosted a charity golf event at the estate last May.
Ahead of the wedding Storm is thought to have jetted to Paris with eleven of her closest friends and family for a weekend of pampering.
The bride, Storm Uechritz, is believed to have been walked down the aisle by her father Gordon and was accompanied by Ronan’s daughters Missy and Ali who served as bridesmaids. Jack Keating supported his father at the top of the alter as he took on the role of Ronan’s best man.
The couple became engaged in Thailand last April after a three year courtship. The couple met on the set of X Factor Australia in 2012.
As Ronan prepared to walk down the aisle in the UK yesterday, his ex-wife Yvonne Connolly revealed that her children had to cope with an absent father during periods of their childhoods.
The 40-year-old blonde was married to former Boyzone singer from 1998 to 2011, but they parted ways when it was revealed he had been unfaithful with a backing dancer.
"The word broken marriages and broken families is thrown around. When I found myself in that situation first, we were all on great terms but it was difficult," she said.
"But the kids had grown up with a father who wasn't always there anyway. They were used to periods of time where they wouldn't see their dad all the time so they adjusted quite well,” she said.
