Love/Hate star Susan Loughnane was the epitome of vintage chic at her glamorous wedding this week.
The actress couldn't have looked more different from the drug-addled character Debbie she played in the hit RTE series as she walked down the aisle with long-term boyfriend David Doyle.
The Malahide native (29) was all smiles as she and her other half celebrated their big day with their nearest and dearest at the intimate Bellinter House in Co Meath on Wednesday.
The actress and author went for laid-back sophistication in a lace and silk full-length vintage-style gown with a silver tiara.
She was joined on her happy day by some of her fellow thespians, including Steve Wilson from Love/Hate, Fair City star Aoibheann McCaul and Caroline Grace-Cassidy.
Susan went to every effort to make sure it was a day to remember for her guests
She personalised all of the place settings with badges bearing her guests' names for the big day, complete with glow sticks.
Susan and David also went for an old-school theme when it came to the entertainment, going for music from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
They set up giant lights projecting 'LOVE' on the dance floor before finishing off the night with a silent disco.
A source said the couple blew everyone away with the amount of effort they put in.
"The attention to detail was just amazing. Everyone loved the name badges and there were some really cool, quirky touches on the day. We all had a ball."
Susan revealed that she had gotten engaged in February 2015, but the pair have been together for more than 10 years.
The couple have been dating since secondary school and they had been juggling a long-distance relationship as David is based in Shannon, Co Clare, where he works in air traffic control.
Until recently, Susan has been dividing her time between there and her Malahide family home.
The couple have been together since secondary school but Susan said she loves where David lives now.
"It's lovely. I have fallen in love with the west coast of Ireland," she said.
"It's such a nice break from the city. I want to live there. I'm counting down the days until I can, but then there is the part of me that still wants to push ahead with career things," she added.
