Bryan & Kerry's Wedding Day...

The first Irish ShowBiz wedding of the year took place on Saturday in County Meath.

Just before 3pm in the tiny village of Rathfeigh Westlife's Bryan McFadden married the former singer with Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona is a star-studded ceremony.

Guests of the couple included the singer Ronan Keating and his wife Yvonne, Westlife's manager Louis Walsh, singer Brian Kennedy, UTV presenter Gerry Kelly, Slane Castle owner Lord Henry Mountcharles, the chief executive of BMG records Freddie Middelton and the other four members of Westlife Nicky, Shane, Kian and Mark.

The couple six month old baby Molly was also at the wedding in the care of Kerry's parents. Tight security surrounded the church since the early hours of Saturday morning after the couple sold the photo rights of the wedding to Hello! magazine for a reported 300,000 euros or just under 250,000.

Only the 200 guests who attended the wedding were allowed to see the couple during the ceremony and reception after. As the couple arrived at the church in two separate cars both with blackened out windows a 20 foot high black curtain was draped over the cars to ensure no photographers got a shot of the couple. Both were escorted by motorcycle Gardai.

Once inside guests were surrounded by white lilies and enjoyed a gospel choir who sang hymns chosen by the couple. Bryan's childhood friend Eddie O'Loughlin was his best man while the chief bridesmaid was Natasha Hamilton, Kerry's former bandmate from Atomic Kitten. The couple found the remote parish church of Rathfeigh on a family outing and fell in love with its romantic location.

The 100,000 euro wedding reception was then held in Slane castle nearby where guests indulged in a luxurious buffet followed by dancing until the early hours of the morning. The wedding went almost without hitch. However, the local priest had asked three local alter girls to serve at the wedding but when they arrived they were turned away.

Security for the couple told the girls that their had been a mix up and Bryan and Kerry had brought their own local priest. But, the girls went away happy after they were offered concert tickets and a chance to meet the band during their upcoming Dublin shows for making the effort.

Over an hour later the couple emerged as man and wife and over 100 Westlife fans and well-wishers cheered as the couple left the church towards Slane in a blue vintage Rolls Royce.

The couple will now enjoy a weeks honeymoon in a secret location before Bryan return's to work with the rest of the band.
