Shane and Leanne Tohill from Pomeroy are on honeymoon following their perfect wedding day.

Shane (29), an IT consultant from Kilrea, and Leanne (27), a pharmacist from Gortin, met on a night out in Cookstown in April 2010 and clicked.

They fell in love and then became engaged on May 4, 2014.

"We were in Antrim Castle and I got down on one knee," Shane said.

The couple were married on May 16.

Their wedding service was held St Mary's Rouskey in Gortin parish.

"It was great," Shane said.

"Father Forbes, who we have known for a good while, made everything very relaxed.

"A couple of jokes and all that. All good."

A reception followed at the Glenavon Hotel in Cookstown, where they had first met five years ago.

The couple's first dance was to Ellie Goulding's song How Long Will I Love You?

"We had an absolutely brilliant day," Shane said.

"It flew in.

"Leanne's cousin's husband Larry Lowe got up with the band - The Groove Robbers - and played a few songs along with them, so we all enjoyed that.

"There was plenty of dancing.

"We also had a magician there for part of the day so that was very good."

Shane and Leanne would like to thank their loved ones for celebrating with them.

"All our friends and family made it very special," Shane said.

"We enjoyed every second of it and the weather stayed good, which was a bonus."

The Tohills are on honeymoon in Sorrento, Italy.

Married life is treating the couple well.

"It is going very well so far, no complaints," added Shane.

"We are all loved up."
