In a never-before-seen image, the couple posed in front of their wedding venue with the couple’s bulldog jay-Z, who sadly passed away since the wedding. Jay-Z absolutely stole the show in a blue velvet dickey bow to match Jamie’s Tuxedo as he took the role of ring-bearer for the day!

The bride wowed in a classic white lace gown, reminiscent of the Duchess’ of Cambridge’s Alexander McQueen showstopper, from Dublin based bridal store Sharon Hoey.

The loved-up duo then took to various locations across Dublin for their wedding photographs, including outside the infamous Guinness Brewery Factory. The talented guys at ‘Story of Eve’ videography, captured the special behind-the-scenes moments of the day where they shared a sneak peek into some of the wedding merriments on Instagram!

Congratulations to Mr & Mrs Heaslip on their 1 year anniversary!
