Two hundred guests filled the St Stephen's Green venue, as Sheena walked down the aisle in a classic white gown with lace long sleeves and a sweetheart neckline.

Jamie's rugby comrades also lined out to wish the newlyweds well.

Rob Kearney and girlfriend Jess Redden were among the guests, as well as Johnny Sexton and wife Laura.

They were joined by Kevin McLoughlin and wife Kate, as well as Jack McGrath and girlfriend Sinead Corcoran.

It's believed the pair are planning a low-key honeymoon in Ireland, as Jamie recovers from a three-test tour in South Africa with the Ireland team.

The couple were spotted leaving the Merrion Hotel yesterday afternoon after their wedding reception at King's Inn.
