Actress Sonya Macari and musician Colin Devlin have revealed how they turned down photo deals for their big day.

The couple, who were married in an "intimate wedding" at the Three Patrons Church in Rathgar on Friday said they had been approached by a number of magazines asking for exclusive rights to take pictures but declined.

"We planned a beautiful party day with our family and friends, and everyone we love. There was simply no need to give anybody exclusivity to that. We had calls but photo-deals are something we are just not into," Sonya told The Diary late on Wednesday night after finishing her first wedding rehearsal.

The LA-based couple had originally planned to tie the knot in Italy last summer but opted instead to have their wedding with friends and family in Dublin.

All gathered for the service at the Three Patrons Church, which has close links to the Italian community in Dublin, and where Sonya herself was baptised in 1982.

The former Tudors actor wore a stunning white dress by Winnie Couture of Beverly Hills yesterday, with groom Colin in a suit by American designer John Varvatos.

Sonya's niece, 14-year-old Ariana Macari, was junior bridesmaid along with an escort of flower girls made up of her younger relatives.

Music at the church service was supplied by Golden Globe-nominated composer Brian Byrne.

Colin had two best men for support -- his brother Peter and school pal Arthur Hughes, with the former raising plenty of chuckles during his speech at the reception, held at the K Club in front of 100 guests.

Much of the speech concerned his adventures with Colin in band The Devlins.

Lorraine Keane's husband revealed how on one US tour their agent accidentally booked the Irish group to perform at an all-black rap club in Detroit.

"There was total silence after we played our first song until Colin told the crowd, 'You know, we're even more surprised we're here than you are.' The whole club erupted into laughter," recounted Peter.

The couple's honeymoon in Italy has been put on hold as Sonya is due to begin work on a TV pilot Magpie in Dublin next week.

And Colin will start recording a new solo album in Montreal in late November.

The Diary wishes the newly-weds well.
