Presenter Claire Byrne walked down the aisle with her partner Gerry Scollan in an intimate ceremony in Dublin yesterday.

The RTE star had been engaged to the IT specialist for three years. They have two children, Patrick (3) and Jane (2).

While she had stressed that her big day would be a low-key affair, Claire turned heads in not one but two wedding dresses.

The Claire Byrne Live star managed to keep the details of the big day under wraps, with only a handful of family and friends attending.

Putting her best fashion foot forward, the 40-year-old wore a knee-length ivory dress coupled with a pillbox hat.

Reception

Making a quick change, the delighted presenter then stepped out in a silk white dress with a plunging neckline and cap sleeves for the evening reception.

Some of the couple's celebrity friends have been sending their well wishes, with TV presenter Grainne Seoige tweeting: "Congratulations Claire and Gerry. Long life together and every happiness in the future."

Maura Derrane wowed in a red dress alongside TD husband John Deasy, while presenter Ivan Yates and wife Deirdre were also guests.

Claire previously said she had no time to plan a lavish wedding. The couple held their reception in the Angler's Rest in Lucan.
