After a brief split, Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid are back together and ready to walk up the aisle.
The Friends actress (51) and Snow Patrol musician (31), from Derry, are engaged once again and planning to exchange vows later this year after splitting in 2015 and reuniting in March.
And contrary to their initial plans for a wedding in Malibu, where they have a home, they are said to be focusing on Ireland as their destination of choice - looking at previous celebrity wedding venues for inspiration.
"Courteney and Johnny are planning a fall wedding,” an insider told US tabloid Life & Style. “They just took a trip to London to meet with their wedding planner.
"They are considering Castle Leslie where Paul McCartney married Heather Mills, as well as Ballintubber Abbey where Pierce Brosnan got married."
Castle Leslie is one of Ireland's premier wedding destinations with McCartney and Mills famously marrying there in 2002, while Irish stars like Jennifer Maguire and Aoife Cogan and Gordon D'Arcy also we at the five star Monaghan castle hotel.
The pair previously looked at Ashford Castle in Co Mayo as a potential location back in 2014, but Courteney preferred a wedding closer to home.
At the time of their split, it was reported that Johnny wanted to spend more time in Ireland and Courteney joining him here for a certain chunk of the year was a condition of their reconciliation.
