Rugby hero Tommy lines out for Welsh wedding with Lucy
IRELAND rugby hero Tommy Bowe is to tie the knot with model Lucy Whitehouse in Wales this weekend.
While the scrummy couple live in Belfast, where Lucy works as a nurse, they decided to hold the ceremony across the pond in honour of Lucy's heritage.
A source told the Herald that the couple will say their vows in Wales, which is where they first met.
The pair were first introduced in 2011 through mutual friends when Tommy was playing for Swansea team Ospreys.
The 31-year-old also chose to get down on bended knee in Wales, as he popped the question to Lucy (27) while they were out walking on a beach on Easter Saturday in 2014.
Tommy's Ulster and Ireland teammates will be flying in at the end of the week for the celebrations.
Bowe recently said that he is leaving the majority of the planning up to Lucy.
"I'm trying to stay as far out of it as I can," he said.
"I imagine I'll end up turning up in some burgundy suit and she'll probably kill me."
