It was a traditional affair when Aoibhin and Doireann Garrihy helped their sister Ailbhe celebrate her big day.

The Dublin PR executive was every inch the beautiful bride as she married long-term boyfriend Ruaidhri Hehir during their two-day wedding in Co Clare.

While the west of Ireland was battered by heavy rain and howling winds, the storm was far from the minds of the happy couple as they tied the knot in Doolin followed by a reception at Gregans Castle Hotel in the Burren.

This was followed by a bigger wedding party yesterday as they continued their celebrations with friends and family.

For her wedding dress, Ailbhe (30) went for a traditional look in a simple but stunning floor-length white gown covered by a lace overlay.

Her bridesmaids - Aoibhin and Doireann and friend Serena O'Grady - wore floor-length mint green gowns.

In a quirky twist and a nod to Ireland, the girls kept warm ahead of the ceremony in cosy Aran jumpers.

Tribute

Ailbhe paid tribute to "my crew" as she posted a photo of her and her bridesmaids.

Older sister and former actress Aoibhin (32), who is expecting her second child with her hotelier husband John Burke, said the day "felt like a dream".

Ahead of her big day, Ailbhe told her Instagram followers she was "soaking up every second of these few days with my favourite people".

"Hoping Lorenzo doesn't hit too hard, but they don't call it the Wild Atlantic Way for nothing," she added.

Ailbhe had been in a relationship with Clare man Ruaidhri for six years before tying the knot.
