Irish chef Donal Skehan and his Swedish love Sofie married yesterday in an intimate Irish ceremony.
Friends and family joined the happy couple at City Hall in Dublin for the ceremony and then to the reception at Lisnavagh House, Co. Carlow.
Donal’s best friend Jonathon joined him at the alter as his best man, both apparently wearing Ted Baker suits. Over 30 of Sofie’s relatives from Sweden travelled to join the couple on their big day, as well as Donal’s parents Dermot and Liz.
Max, the couple’s border collie/jack russel cross, who’s a bit of a big deal on social media apparently, was also at the alter with his loved up owners.
Earlier this week Donal said that Max had been planning his outfit for the big day, he explained that “Max has a new little collar and is coming to the afters.”
Donal and Sofie have been together since 2006. Sofie was visiting Ireland and the pair met when she took a trip to Donal’s native Howth.
When he spoke to the RTÉ Guide earlier this year, Donal admitted he would not be taking charge of the food at his wedding.
He said “I won’t be going near the food for my wedding – we have very good friends who have a restaurant in Drogheda called the Eastern Seaboard and they’re going to be looking after it for us.”
We think he deserved a stress-free day considering he’s been filming in Europe up until quite recently.
Some guests at the wedding have shared their happy snaps of the beautiful pair and Sofie, who chose a simple white gown for her big day looks absolutely fabulous.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
