The Australian native told the Irish Daily Mail's YOU Magazine that she was touched when Ronan's sister Linda offered her the band for the day.

"Linda gave me their mam's engagement ring to wear which was an incredibly sweet gesture. I somehow felt even closer to her wearing that ring and when Ro saw me wearing it at the altar. I know he did too."

"It was very special that we could have that piece of her with us during what was the happiest moment of our lives."

Marie passed away in 1998 after a two year battle with breast cancer, aged just 51.

“We set up the charity in memory of my late mum, but also to help people not be in the situation we were in because we were so confused and heartbroken," Ronan told the Daily Telegraph earlier this week as he hosted the annual Cancer Council Australia’s Emeralds and Ivy Ball in Sydney.

The couple are currently based in the UK, but hope to move to Ireland soon to be closer to Ronan's three children.

Storm (34) also teased that they are planning to bring their coffee business Grind Coffee to Ireland.
