The Keatings: her dress, his Land Rover and their pug as ring-bearer

It was the celebrity wedding of the summer: Boyzone star Ronan Keating married TV producer Storm Uechtritz in a glittering four-day celebration in Scotland.

And now the first snaps of their Big Day have emerged – with all eyes being on the 34-year-old bride's stunning dress.

The Aussie-native wore a bespoke Chantilly lace dress embroidered with silk and organza petals. Created by designer Steven Khalil, also an Australian, rather than being stark white the gown sports a soft, warm hue. 

With the likes of Shane Lynch, Keith Duffy and Mikey Graham, as well as Dannii Minogue and Brian McFadden all in attendance, the star-factor was always going to be high.

But even Storm herself was uncharacteristically mute when none-other than Ed Sheeran came on to perform during their reception. 

In an tell-all interview with HELLO! magazine, which exclusively covered the event, Ronan reveals: "Ed's a good friend and Thinking Out Loud is one of mine and Storm's songs.

"When we all caught up in New York City a couple of months ago, I sounded him out about doing it and he didn't hesitate. I was blown away. He is the most grounded, decent guy in the business and what a talent.

"Storm was speechless when Ed appeared. That doesn't happen often!"

Still, the new Mrs Keating had a surprise of her own for the groom: a customised Land Rover Defender which she presented to him immediately after they said their vows.

Ronan describes the car as "the best present ever".

"I've had a couple of them over the years," he states, "but nothing like this one. She has customised it exactly how I would have done it myself – she knows me so well."

Meanwhile, and away from the trappings of a high-profile celebrity wedding, this was very much a family affair – much like the couple's stag and hen dos

In fact, Ronan's son Jack, 16, was best man at the open-air ceremony, while daughters Missy, 14, and nine-year-old Ali were Maid Of Honour and flower girl respectively.

Even the family's pet pug, Aussie, got in on the action: she was ring-bearer and trotted along a petal-strewn aisle with the wedding rings tied around her neck.

"It was a perfect day. We always wanted the wedding party to be just us and the kids," Ronan, 38, also tells HELLO! "It's so special for me that Storm would want the girls to be by her side.

"I'm so proud and honoured. It means the world."

Ronan goes on to tell how he believes his late bandmate, Stephen Gately, who died in 2009, had a hand in ensuring they were basked in sunshine for the entire celebration.

"I know that my Mam, Steo and Storm's granddad had a hand in making sure the weather was perfect – the one thing that was out of our hands."
