Cailin McGreevy and Christopher Dorsey are enjoying married life following their fairy tale wedding in Co Louth.

Cailin, a clinical director in social services from Belfast, and Christopher, a social worker from New York, met in 2007 through work and were friends at first.

They then fell in love and became engaged on February 15, 2014, on Chatham beach in Cape Cod.

"Chris had originally planned for a Valentine's Day proposal but my work got in the way and he didn't have the time," Cailin said.

The couple were married on April 10 at St Oliver Plunkett Church in Blackrock, Co Louth.

A beautiful reception followed at Bellingham Castle, also in Co Louth.

The newlyweds took to the dance floor for the first time as a married couple to a track chosen by the groom.

It was My Eyes Adore You by Frankie Valli.

"We had an absolutely fantastic day," Cailin said.

"It was a fairy tale wedding and the sun shone."

The happy couple then headed to the Amalfi Coast on honeymoon and are relaxed and enjoying married life.

Cailin and Christopher would like to thank their friends and family for helping to make their big day so special.

"We had the best time of our lives," Cailin said.

"Everything was perfect and we would do it all over again.

"We spent the night before at Cabra Castle in Co Cavan, 60 of our friends and family showed up to have dinner with us.

"The next day we were celebrating in Bellingham Castle, Co Louth.

"Not many brides do this, but I loved both locations and couldn't decide on which one for our wedding so we negotiated and ended up with enjoying both locations.

"Our American visitors loved it."
