It’s Lady in Wed ... as Rosanna seals the deal with Wes in top-secret Dublin wedding bash

Former Miss World Rosanna Davison is officially off the market, The Herald can reveal.

The top model (30) and her new hubby Wes Quirke got married in a private civil ceremony in the Merrion Hotel, two weeks ahead of their June 1 Ibiza bash.

She wore a customised white gown for the wedding and looked “absolutely stunning”, according to guests.

The happy couple surprised everyone after swapping vows in a top-secret event where all their guests were sworn to secrecy.

A 2007 change to marriage laws means that couples can now get married in a hotel, provided they give three months’ notice and don’t stage it on the weekend.

The high-profile pair kept the numbers to strictly immediate family and close friends, with just 25 of their nearest and dearest joining them.

“They wanted to keep the day totally private and intimate so everyone was asked not to post pics to Facebook or Twitter and just to enjoy the day,” said a source.

“Rosanna looked absolutely gorgeous, exactly how you would expect a former Miss World to look on her wedding day.”

The couple managed to avoid getting snapped by the waiting photographers by checking into the hotel early yesterday morning. Making sure she looked immaculate for her big day, Rosanna had her nails done in Dundrum on Thursday night and hair and make-up done yesterday.

Attendees included Rosanna’s famous father Chris de Burgh, her mum Diane alongside Wesley’s parents Anne and Richard. Also there was his Damo & Ivor’ star sibling Andy, alongside Rosie’s two brothers Michael and Hubie and her paternal grandmother Maeve.

Cutting a glamorous dash were her five bridesmaids Katie Jane Goldin, Gillian Fitzpatrick, Ronnie Ryan, Dawn Fitzgerald, Hayley Rock and her bridesman’ Brendan Rogers.

A civil registrar performed the ceremony shortly after noon. Afterwards, guests headed down to a celebratory champagne lunch in the Cellar restaurant, with a customised vegan menu laid on especially.
