Andrea is picture-perfect as she marries beau Rob in Ibiza

HERE are the first pictures of beautiful new bride Andrea Roche with her new husband as the pair celebrated their nuptials in Ibiza.

Looking stunning in her elegant, full-length Vera Wang creation, the former Miss Ireland was all smiles as she tied the knot with Rob White earlier this month.

Another high-profile model who opted for a more laid back look for her wedding, Andrea (34) wore her hair long and loose and kept accessories to a minimum.

The Diary can reveal she looked the picture-perfect beauty as she posed for snaps with her Killiney-born partner after their exchange of vows in the sun-kissed island.

Grinning broadly and wearing a navy blue suit with a white shirt, Rob opted for a more casual look for his big day.


Wedding guest Rozanna Purcell (21) said the bride looked "absolutely stunning" at the intimate bash for 130 people.

And she said the chemistry between them was obvious, describing one of the showbiz weddings of the summer as a "beautiful" ceremony.

"I went over there on Saturday and came back on Thursday and Andrea just looked so amazing.

"There was so much love in the room on the day. It was so good, I'm having the Ibiza lows now that I'm back," she explained.

Andrea had no less than six bridesmaids on the day, including her new sister-in-law Holly White, Tara Reynolds, Lisa Fitzpatrick, Charlene Roche and Nadine King.

But she decided to buck tradition by having her pretty bridesmaids wearing off-white cocktail dresses for the ceremony.

Other guests included Kristi Kuudisiim, Peter Mark hairdresser Michael Doyle, Pippa O'Connor, Rosanna Davison, Gail Kaneswaran and Faith Burnett.

Many of her attendees made a holiday of it and stayed on the island, where they enjoyed a series of pool parties and nights out in VIP clubs.

The model agency boss decided to keep it a strictly private affair on the day with no official pics released to the media.

She hasn't ever commented on her engagement to the son of renowned solicitor Patrick White, which happened last December.

Smitten Rob got down on bended knee during a trip to Paris, where they stayed at the George V Hotel.

He produced a vintage sparkler during a trip to the top of the Eiffel Tower and the couple wasted little time in making it official.

Andrea is still enjoying her nuptials but is due back to Dublin shortly where she's expected to start preparations for the 2012 Miss Universe Ireland contest.

The Tipperary native is due to have the contest at the D4 hotel in September as the heats for the competition's finals take place all over Ireland.
