A weekend of weddings across the UK & Ireland!


Russell Brand & Laura Gallacher

Comedian Russell Brand has tied the knot to long-term love Laura Gallacher, in an intimate and relaxed affair in Oxon.

The former lothario exchanged vows with Laura, who has previously worked in the restaurant business, at Remenham Church near their home in Henley-on-Thames at the weekend.

According to ‘The Sun’, the couple, who share adorable daughter Mabel together, wanted a small and personal affair with close friends and family, with a source telling the publication that it was “a lovely occasion” where “Mabel was guest of honour”.

Although the day was an intimate and loving affair, it wouldn’t be Russell Brand’s wedding without something a little bit quirky! And true to form, the couple decided to hire a New Orleans vintage paddle steamer to ferry the wedding party to the wedding reception!

Upon arrival at the reception, guests were treated to a colourful Indian-themed bash with staff in bespoke saris!  And dash of showbiz was also added to the day by some celebrity faces such as Noel Gallagher and Jonathan Ross making the guest list.

The bride stunned in a beautiful long-sleeve gown with detailed beading and lace, with her hair down in tousled waves and a traditional veil. Meanwhile, Russell stuck to his signature dress sense opting for a black waist coat and open shirt with neckerchief to reveal his chest.  The wedding comes after Russell proposed to Laura last July, after rekindling their on/off romance.

Bono attends star-studded wedding of Paul McGuinness’ Daughter  

U2 legends Bono and the ‘Edge’ took a break from their tour to attend the wedding of Alexandra McGuinness, the daughter of the legendary Paul McGuinness, the Irish rock manager.

Bono dismissed the opportunity to sing the Irish national anthem for the McGregor v Mayweather fight in Las Vegas at the weekend, in favour of attending the exclusive wedding ay Nun’s Cross Church in Ashford, Co. Wicklow.

The beautiful bride Alexandra tied the knot to her American groom Blake Berris, who is an actor from California and has starred in shows such as Pretty Little Liars and the long-running soap opera, ‘Days of Our Lives’.

The bride wore a Victorian-style elegant white dress with puffed sheer sleeves and traditional cathedral length veil with gold headpiece, as proud dad Paul donned a bright blue suit to ‘give his daughter away’.

Looking on from the church aisles, Bono opted for his signature all-black look and tinted sunglasses as he was accompanied by Ali Hewson, whereas the Edge donned his trademark beanie hat with a blue suit.
