Gillian and Jonathan Boyd from Lisburn fell in love following a night out in Dungannon and are now living in marital bliss. Beauty therapist Gillian (31) and Jonathan, a warehouse manager, met on Boxing Day in 2011 at a bar "through a friend of a friend".

They fell in love and became engaged on a trip to France in March 2012.

"We were in Paris," Gillian said. "We were meeting my brother and his wife from America.

"He had the ring with him and proposed when we were in a boat on the Seine. It was very romantic."

The couple married on March 24 at St Elizabeth Church of Ireland, Moygashel.

"It was very intimate and relaxed," Gillian said. "It was lovely."

A reception for 65 guests followed at Corick House Hotel in Clogher.

Gillan and Jonathan's first dance as husband and wife was a jive to one of Olly Murs' hit songs, Dance With Me Tonight.

"It was an amazing day," Gillian said.

"Very relaxed, intimate and personal. Just lovely.

"We had a photo booth, it was very entertaining for guests.

"The flowers were by Janice Watt from the Flower Studio in Dungannon and the band, Backbeat, were great. Very lively."

For their honeymoon the new Mr and Mrs Boyd took in the Ultra Music Festival in Miami followed by a Caribbean cruise.

Married life is going well for the couple. "It's brilliant," Gillian said. "No real change, but good."
