John and Linda Devine are enjoying married life following their dream wedding. Linda (27), from Newry, and John (29), a three-time All-Ireland-winning Gaelic footballer from Ballygawley, first met at O'Neills bar in Liverpool in 2005.

The couple – both teachers – formed a close friendship and then quickly fell in love with each other.

"We were supposed to go on our first date to the cinema," Linda said. "But I was too scared, so I invited John to the house for tea and a biscuit.

"We went out for dinner the following week. We were friends first."

On April 27, 2010 the couple became engaged at Ballintubber Abbey in Co Mayo and then set about organising their wedding.

"John proposed a couple of days before Kate and Wills got married at Westminster Abbey," Linda said.

"I have to give him his dues, we worked together with friends and family to plan everything and it made it so special."

On their big day, Cloghogue Church in Newry was the venue for the ceremony with a beautiful reception for 275 guests after at the Ballymascanlon Hotel in Dundalk, Co Louth. The new Mr and Mrs Devine took to the dance floor for their first dance as husband and wife to Olly Murs' upbeat hit Dance With Me Tonight.

"We had an absolutely wonderful day," Linda said.

"Everybody was so happy.

"We had a vintage, classic and very friendly wedding and there was lots of lace everywhere."

The Devines had been due to honeymoon in New Zealand and New York, but the romantic trip had to be cancelled due to Tyrone goalkeeper John's commitments with his club Errigal Ciaran.

"We had a break in Dublin instead," Linda said.

Now at home and settling into married life, the Devines are enjoying every part of the latest chapter in their life together.

"We had a brilliant wedding day and being married is great," Linda said.

"Everything is so magical and special.

"We enjoy each other's company and have all our friends and family around us."
