FORMER Irish rugby star Peter Stringer was all smiles as he tied the knot with his long-term love Debbie O'Leary.

The former Munster scrum-half (37) wed the beautiful blonde in an intimate ceremony in Marbella, Spain yesterday afternoon.

The happy couple, who have been together for six years, said 'I do' in the picturesque Nuestra Senora de la Encarnacion church in the Spanish city in front of family and friends.

Among the guests were the Corkman's former team-mates Paul O'Connell and Donncha O'Callaghan. Model Nadia Forde - whose mother passed away from cancer at the weekend - jetted in to see best friend Debbie walk down the aisle.

Peter - who plays for English club Sale Sharks - looked dapper in a navy suit paired with a pink tie as he posed with his new wife, who was stunning in a strapless sweetheart gown.

Speaking ahead of his wedding, Peter gushed about his bride to be.

"It's all about her, I'll try fade into the background as much as I can," he said.

"Debbie looks amazing no matter what she wears, I'm looking forward to seeing her on the day."

He also revealed the couple haven't organised their honeymoon yet. "We haven't really planned it. But we'll stay in Spain for a while. We may have to postpone it until the end of the year," he told RTE's Ray D'Arcy.

"We're just focusing on enjoying the day with friends and family.

"We wanted to get away to get the good weather and have a good week, and want it to be nice and relaxing," he added.

The loved-up pair have been based in Bath for the last two years and will soon be moving to Sale, where Stringer will play next year.
