Jamie Heaslip is officially a married man.
The Irish rugby star wed his partner of six years Sheena O’Buachalla on Saturday after an eight month engagement.
The couple exchanged vows at the Newman University Church, St Stephen's Green, with 200 guests in attendance, comprising of friends, family and Heaslip's Ireland teammates.
The bride stunned in a traditional white gown with lace long-sleeves, a sweetheart neckline and cut-out back detailing. She kept her brunette locks in simple soft waves.
The celebrations weren't short of famous faces as Rob Kearney and girlfriend Jess Redden led the charge of stars alongside Johnny Sexton and wife Laura; Kevin McLoughlin and wife Kate; Jack McGrath and girlfriend Sinead Corcoan.
Jamie's bulldog Jay-Z was also in attendance, as were teammates Jordi Murphy, Dave Kearney and Sean O'Brien.
Also spotted was Leinster star Sean O'Brien and girlfriend Georgia McGurk, the daughter of RTE presenter Miriam O'Callaghan and rugby broadcaster Tom McGurk
Heaslip, who recently returned from a trip to New York with his other half, quietly popped the question over the Christmas break and the pair wasted no time in organising their trip up the aisle.
Sheena, a marketing executive, is the daughter of millionaires Oisín and Sharon O'Buachalla, major figures in the car industry.
They are notoriously private, with the No.8 previously telling the Irish Independent he liked keeping his private life out of the public eye.
It has been a busy off season for the rugby set with a number of recent weddings, including that of Leinster player Devin Toner to Mary Scott last month.
Meanwhile, former Leinster star Eoin O'Malley wed his girlfriend Lara Nolan in an intimate ceremony in Faro, Portugal two weeks ago.
Later in the evening Rob Kearney posted a picture of the wedding reception on his Instagram page.
