First photos from her humanist wedding shared by Laura

By Karen Birney

Belfast model Laura Lacole beamed in a glamorous satin bridal gown as she tied the knot with her footballer beau Eunan O'Kane in Northern Ireland's first humanist wedding.

The couple, who had been at the centre of a legal battle to have their humanist marriage legally recognised, tied the knot in Galgorm Resort and Spa near Ballymena, Co Antrim.

Earlier this month the celebrity pair won their battle to have their humanist wedding legally recognised.

The ruling meant that the British Humanist Association's head of ceremonies could solemnise the Belfast woman's marriage to the Republic of Ireland and Leeds midfielder.

Model Laura, who is also vice chair of Atheist Northern Ireland (Atheist NI), wore a glamorous long-sleeved satin gown which featured ruching around her hips and thighs and a stunning puddle train.

"I adored my bridal robe," the 27-year-old commented.

Judges have still to decide on a bid to overturn a ruling that the couple faced discrimination based on their belief.
