I don't want 1D fans at my wedding -- Niall's brother

Niall Horan's brother Greg will be "playing it cool" in the run up to his wedding day next year.

Niall's older brother doesn't want gangs of One Direction fans gate-crashing his wedding day.

"I'm keeping very cool about the whole thing. I don't want loads of screaming One Direction fans there so I'm staying cool," he told the Herald earlier today.

Despite being fiercely territorial about Mullingar, Greg (24) says he's unsure where the nuptials will take place.

"I haven't a clue where it will take place or when," Greg said. "I haven't really thought about it yet. We only just got engaged."

But one thing is for certain, Greg wants 19-year-old Niall to be his best man.

"I really want Niall to be there on the day as my best man. Hopefully he'll be able to do it what with work and all," Greg said.

"We want to work with Niall's schedule -- he's my only brother so I want him to be my best man."

Greg and fiancee Denise have been dating for "a good while" and Greg says that the engagement was extremely romantic.

"We got engaged a few weeks back. Obviously it was romantic -- it was an engagement after all," he joked.

"Seriously though, I knew she was the one all along, to be honest."

And younger brother Niall was thrilled to hear Greg had decided to settle down.

"We only broke the news quietly to family and friends a couple of weeks ago. Niall was delighted.

"He thinks the world of Denise so he was delighted for us. When he met her he hugged her so I knew he liked her."

But Greg doesn't think that Niall will be settling down anytime soon.

"I don't know if he'll meet someone tomorrow or in 20 years time -- who knows. Whatever happens, I'll be happy for him and proud of him."
