Former Irish Rugby Star Shane Horgan Ties the Knot

A quirky wedding for a stylish couple

Shane Horgan, former Leinster and Ireland rugby star said his ‘I Do’s over the weekend, tying the knot to fiancée Emma Hodson at the beautiful Bellinter House.

The venue, based in Co. Meath made for a luxurious countryside retreat for the couple to celebrate their nuptials with their closest friends and family. Known as one of the most unique wedding venues in Ireland, it seemed a perfect match for the couple who hosted an untraditional, quirky yet effortlessly stylish day going by the pictures! Unique touches included their gold pineapple centrepieces and personalised Heineken beer bottles…

Despite Shane being the better-known of the duo, there is no doubt that all eyes were on the stunning bride on the day,  as looking at the images shared via Instagram,  she is giving us all some serious style goals!

The stylish bride opted for an untraditional silk two-piece, in a delicate cropped top and flowing thigh-split skirt. She added a daring feather-fringed style jacket, a statement jewelled necklace and a 1950’s birdcage veil over her candy pink hair for the ultimate bohemian rock & vintage vibe. The bride finished the look with her wild floral bouquet, yellow nail polish, statement rings and diamond cuff bracelet.
