Ronan Keating has revealed that he wants a Game of Thrones-style wedding if he ever ties the knot to girlfriend Storm Uechtritz.

The couple have been together for around two years after meeting on the set of X Factor Australia where she used to work as a producer on the talent show.

They hooked up a few months after Ronan's split from his wife Yvonne in 2012 but the Boyzone crooner isn't sure his lady would agree for their nuptials to be in the style of the US fantasy series.

"If we did get married, I was thinking more of a Game of Thrones kind of theme, but she's really earthy," he said.

organic

Storm agreed saying, "Yeah, I'd want it to be very organic and natural."

"I grew up on a farm in North Queensland so I'd like simplicity," she added.

Ronan (37) credits his 34-year-old girlfriend with helping him come to terms with the death of his bandmate Stephen Gately, who died in 2009.

"Storm understood me and was there and it was everything to me," he revealed.

"We became real good friends, and the chemistry got greater and greater and over time one thing led to another. I've never known anything like it - she's my best friend," he added.

And while they may disagree on the theme, Uechtritz said the pair are already planning their wedding.

"We've both found our soulmate and we know that we are going to spend the rest of our lives together. He's amazing; I love him," she gushed. "We've talked about having a baby and it is a possibility for us."

Keating credits the blonde beauty with bringing him back to life after a few tough years in his personal life.

"I feel like I'm on the climb again, I'm feeling like it's a bit of a rebirth for me, like I'm having a renaissance and a lot of that is down to Storm," he told Hello magazine.

"I'm in a great place and I'm ready to start living," he added.

celebrated

The couple celebrated Storm's birthday last weekend with a romantic cruise around Sydney Harbour with friends, as well as an all-night dinner for her 34th birthday.

Guests at the glamorous bash included Ronan's fellow X Factor judge Dannii Minogue and her beau Adrian Newman.

"Everything was planned and selected by Ronan right down to the candles and hand soaps in bathrooms," Storm wrote online as she shared pictures of the party with her fans. "So thoughtful. Such a special night - thank you baby."
