Bernadette Doherty and John Phelan were originally meant to say 'I do' in March this year - but after the storm brought the country to a standstill, things soon changed.

The Kildare-based couple were forced to cancel their marriage registration after the Naas registry office has to close because of the snow.

And, understandably, they were disappointed.

Their neighbours soon rallied together to help them create an impromptu wedding, ahead of their planned 'mini-moon' in Germany.

Everyone worked together to create a stunning winter wonderland in their back garden so that Bernadette and John could still 'get married' - there was a snow chapel and all.

But John has now revealed that he and Bernadette officially wed earlier this month - and, thankfully, the weather was on their side this time.

The pair got married in Dubrovnik, Croatia on September 9 in front of 60 of their friends and family.

There was initially concern over the weather - they had planned an outdoor ceremony, and rain was forecast right up until the day before - but the blue skies broke out just in time.
