Top celebrity wedding photographer Jenny McCarthy has said that there is no secret to her 19-year relationship to TV3 presenter Martin King, other than that they are "just in love."

When asked if brides-to-be look for advice on maintaining a long-term relationship, Jenny admitted that she doesn't have any advice to give them.

"I don't have any advice, we're just in love," she told Independent.ie.

Jenny and Martin met 19 years ago while working on 98fm and tied the knot in Killashee House Hotel, Co. Kildare, five years ago.

She said that the couple, who have two children together, often get joked about by friends and family for holding hands.

"People always joke with us for holding hands but that's just us."

Jenny, who lists Seamus Coleman and Pippa O'Connor among her previous wedding photography clients, said that she and Martin are "a real team."

"We're a real team at Photos by Jen, although Martin is a silent director."
