Michelle and Paul Greeves are enjoying married life in Holywood following their relaxed May wedding.
Victoria Square manager Michelle (43) and Paul (43), who works in IT sales, knew each other from school but didn't fall in love until they both returned to Northern Ireland and met up again seven years ago.
They became engaged over Easter last year.
"It was very unexpected," Michelle said.
"He proposed at home. We had just been out for a nice meal."
Michelle and Paul married on May 30 at Bangor Castle.
"It was very, very relaxed," Michelle said.
"It was very emotional having our friends and family around. It was lovely."
A reception followed after at the Royal Belfast Golf Club. The couple's first dance was to 1980s classic power ballad Don't Know Much by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville.
"We were blessed with the weather, the sun split the trees," Michelle said.
"It was glorious. A very chilled, relaxed, amazing party. Just what we wanted."
Michelle wore a gown made by Mary Rose McGrath.
"My nana passed away several years ago and left me a crystal necklace so Mary Rose was able to incorporate that into the back of the dress," Michelle said.
"It meant a lot."
Following the wedding the new Mr and Mrs Greeves headed to Sorrento, Capri and Amalfi on honeymoon.
Married life is treating them well.
"Everything is good," Michelle said. "Life is exactly the same as it was bit it feels that little bit better."
