The bride wore a Cork designer, with the Sultans of Ping in attendance at the ceremony in the heart of Cork.

Journalist and former TV presenter Joe O'Shea tied the knot in his hometown of Cork. 

Some well-known faces including Father Ted's Mrs Doyle, alias actress and writer Pauline McLynn, were spotted at the Munster nuptials.

Joe's bride Holly Ni Chiardha is a literary agent with company Lisa Richards, and her boss Richard Cook is Pauline's husband.

Holly wore a dress by Cork designer Caroline Mathews and had her hair and make-up done by Leonard Daly.

Photographer Alex Sapienza caught beautiful moments of the humanist ceremony in the Crawford Art Gallery and later reception in the Imperial Hotel.

Joe met Holly, a former casting director with the Abbey Theatre, two years ago at a reception for the Dublin Theatre Festival.

Sultan's of Ping drummer Morty McCarthy was among the 100 guests at the wedding.

The happy couple are planning a honeymoon in Thailand.
