James McClean weds sweetheart Erin Connor

By Donna Deeney

Football star James McClean was man of the match as he tied the knot with his long-term partner Erin Connor.

St Columb's Church in the Waterside in Londonderry was the setting for the wedding of the West Brom and Republic of Ireland winger and his sweetheart as their families and friends joined them for their big day.

The couple's two children Allie Mae (2) and eight-month-old James Junior were also there.

Bride Erin looked stunning in a figure-hugging, off the shoulder satin full-length gown and carried a bouquet of flowers in soft pastel shades of pink and apricot.

The ensemble was complemented beautifully by a long, flowing veil which hung delicately from her updo hairstyle.

The beaming groom steered away from tradition and dressed entirely in black for the special occasion.

He chose a vintage black velvet jacket trimmed in satin - a look that's in vogue this season - contrasted with a single white flower on his lapel.

The vintage theme was continued by the couple's choice of transport - a fine Bentley with a real 1920s feel.

The honeymoon, though, is on hold as the groom concentrates on the Republic's upcoming trip to the Euros.
