Just Married: Teenage dreams so hard to beat for Kathleen and Bobbie Garrett

Kathleen and Bobbie Garrett from Larne fell in love as teenagers in 2003. So Teenage Kicks by The Undertones was the perfect choice for their first dance as husband and wife a decade later when they tied the knot.

"We met when we worked together in a petrol station as teenagers," Kathleen said.

"We started going out in December 2003."

Fund manager Kathleen (28) and Bobbie (27), an account manager, became engaged on a trip to New York in December 2011.

"We were in New York before Christmas for a few days and he proposed at Central Park," Kathleen said.

Kathleen wore a Jenny Packham gown for the couple's marriage service which took place at St MacNissi's Church in Larne.

"A priest and a minister both delivered the service because we are different religions," Kathleen said.

"It was lovely."

A reception followed at Galgorm Manor with the new Mr and Mrs Garrett taking to the dancefloor to Teenage Kicks.

"We picked it because they are a Northern Irish band and because we met as teenagers," Kathleen said.

"It was a fantastic day, everything went very smoothly.

"A Marryoke of Tina Turner song Simply The Best captured our day perfectly.

"We want to thank everyone who celebrated with us for making it such a special day."

The newlyweds honeymooned in Mexico and are enjoying married life.

"All good so far," Kathleen said.

"We signed for the house the day before the wedding so when we got home we were able to move in pretty much straight away."
