Rugby star Tommy Bowe is enjoying some practice for his own wedding as he attends a family wedding.
The Ireland hero, who is engaged to long-term girlfriend Lucy Whitehouse, has yet to reveal his wedding date but it's expected he'll walk up the aisle next July.
The 30-year-old is currently soaking up the sun in Greece with his family and he tweeted a photo of the Bowes in the sun.
"Great wedding and holiday with the family in Greece. Time for home #rednose," he wrote.
Lucy (30) has now given up on modelling to concentrate on her nursing career. In 2015 Bowe will be busy preparing for the Six Nations campaign, the European Cup championship and the RaboDirect PRO12. As a result of the hectic schedule, the most likely time of the couple’s nuptials will be a date in July, the same month Gordon D’Arcy married his model wife Aoife Cogan in 2012.
Bowe, who tries to avoid divulging details of his private life, previously said it was his fiancee's down-to-earth nature which attrracted him the most.
"Rugby players in Wales don't have the best reputation," Tommy said. "Maybe she thought I was just another a***hole.
"When she finally agreed to meet me, we hit it off. She thinks I'm okay now. I liked the fact she was lovely and very down-to-earth."
"Moving to Belfast was a massive step for her because all of her friends and family are in Wales, but she has taken it really well.
"The beauty of it is, Wales is so close, so she can go back and forth very easily and her friends and family come over."
