Rugby star Tommy Bowe has walked down the aisle with girlfriend Lucy Whitehouse.

The Monaghan native has made it official with Lucy, a Welsh nurse and former Miss Wales winner.

The wedding took place in Laugharne, west Wales.

The Belfast-based couple decided to have the ceremony in Lucy's native country. It is where they first met, and where he proposed.

For the big day, the bride wore a stunning strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and full satin skirt. Although he previously joked about a burgundy suit, the Ulster winger looked dapper in black with a pink tie.

Tommy (31) and Lucy (27) were introduced by mutual friends in 2011 and he popped the question at Easter 2014.

It has been a big week for rugby weddings: Irish international and Sale player Peter Stringer and Leinster wed his partner, Debbie O'Leary, in Marbella; and Irish player Sean Cronin married his partner, Claire Mulcahy, in Castleconnell, Co Limerick.
