Newlyweds Georgia and Joe enjoy model US honeymoon

Georgia Salpa looks to be enjoying married life while on her honeymoon in the US.

The Dublin model beamed as she posed with her new husband Joe Penna in sunny California after their wedding last weekend.

The photogenic pair jetted to San Diego following their lavish Italian nuptials and wasted no time in checking out the tourist hotspots.

Georgia (30) and her businessman beau enjoyed a day out at the zoo before exploring the city on Segways.

Although the pair kept their Mediterranean wedding top secret, imposing a social media ban on guests, they were more than happy to share pictures of their US getaway on Instagram.


Georgia tied the knot with the millionaire last Saturday in an extravagant ceremony in picturesque Portofino.

Many of the Big Brother star's model friends jetted to the beautiful location for the wedding, including Daniella Moyles, Louise Kavanagh, Michele McGrath and Karena Graham.

After the wedding, Georgia took to social media to thank her guests for making her day special.

"Truly the most magical, romantic perfect weekend," she wrote. "We couldn't have wished for a more amazing wedding.

"It was a fairytale, and in every way a dream come true.

"Thank you so much to all our family and friends for making it so special for us. Incredible few days, so much love."

Speaking to the Herald ahead of her big day, the model revealed the couple wouldn't be signing a magazine deal because they wanted the day to be "low key".

"We would just rather have it for ourselves and a have a nice day," she said.
