Dublin Sky Sports presenter Rachel Wyse has married her millionaire showjumper Tim Gredley.

The couple tied the knot on Saturday, with a lavish flower-filled reception at Adare Manor in Co Limerick.

Rachel looked picture-perfect, wearing a beautiful lace A-line gown with pretty capped sleeves and a nipped-in waist, while for celebrations the night before she kept things simple in a sweet "something blue" dress.

On Friday night, the couple celebrated with a party to welcome guests from the UK and Ireland, which saw everyone enjoying an evening of energetic dancing to music from a traditional Irish band.

Sophisticated

On the morning of the big day itself, bride Rachel and her chief bridesmaid, sister Gillian, and their pals caught a few "peaceful moments" on a beautiful walk around the grounds of the sophisticated hotel - "her last walk as a single lady", one friend joked.

The beautiful Adare Manor was chosen for their lavish reception, at which guests were treated to a delicious menu including an adventurous shellfish starter.

Decor included elegant navy linens and huge floral centrepieces and dainty tea lights. A 360-degree "spinning" bar served drinks.

After their first dance, to Can't Help Falling In Love, the couple partied the night away with a 14-piece band playing to a packed dance floor which kept going well into the early hours of Sunday morning.

Adare Manor has been the venue of choice for several high-profile weddings in the past, including US skateboarding legend Tony Hawk's big day back in 2015.

Irish soccer star Robbie Brady and fiancee Kerrie Harris also tied the knot at the venue last summer.

Tim and Rachel have been together for nearly two years, with the Sky Sports presenter announcing their engagement on Instagram with a caption "the easiest yes".

She previously told how she met Tim 13 years ago at a horse show in Cavan.

"I was jumping and he had horses. But then nothing happened and all these years later, we met again. We weren't in each other's orbits through the intervening years. We just met up last year and it went from there. It's going great, I'm very happy."

Wyse, a busy presenter who travels every week for the four months of the GAA championships, said the pair "just click".

"If you want to make something work in life, there's always time to fit somebody in. It works for us. We just click and get on well."
