RTÉ's Kathryn Thomas marries partner Padraig McLoughlin in Co Kildare

They were engaged for three years.

Kathryn Thomas has married her partner Padraig McLoughlin in Co Kildare.


The Operation Transformation presenter tied the knot yesterday in the beautiful Kilkea Castle surrounded by friends and family.

Kathryn's agency, NK Management, confirmed the news with an Instagram post featuring the newly weds.

The image shows the RTÉ presenter and her new husband walking hand-in-hand in the grounds of the 12th century castle following the ceremony.


Kathryn is wearing a stunning backless gown with intricate bow detailing, and a white gold minimalist headpiece.

"NK Management is delighted to confirm that Kathryn Thomas and Padraig McLoughlin have married in a ceremony in Ireland this afternoon," said the post.

Galway Now shared another adorable photo of the day of the couple alongside daughter Ellie.


The toddler is dressed in a white floral detailed dress with white booties to match.

Kathryn and Padraig got engaged back in 2016 but put off getting married after the presenter became pregnant with Ellie in 2017.

"It's just going to be a big party and it feels more special now that Ellie is here to celebrate with us," Kathryn said at the time.


She recently revealed that she was planning on having nine bridesmaids for the big day - as feat that was proving difficult given the short amount of time they had to plan the wedding.

"I am busy ringing people up at the last minute asking them how to make this thing happen," she told Extra.ie.

"I always said, if you can’t organise a party in three months sure what are you at? Then I realised when you are talking about a wedding it is different."


Kathryn and Padraig met in 2013 when they were queuing to enter a pub on Baggot Street. He popped the question three years later while they were staying in Ballyfin House, Co Laois.

The couple had 200 guests at their wedding. They're planning a honeymoon to celebrate the marriage at a later date.
