The photo is of Wayne Gough and DJ O’Hanlon from Lordship, Co. Louth, and was taken at Harvey’s Point in Donegal.

Wayne, a station manager at Dublin Airport, married accountant DJ on Tuesday and called finally being married a ‘fantastic feeling’.

The couple told on Monday that Wayne proposed to DJ in the same spot, after they first spotted the pier and promised that is where they would get married.

We both said on that [day] if we were ever going to get married, this is where we would get married.

Congrats to the happy couple <3
