Xposé beauty Karen Koster tied the knot to her boyfriend of four years, John McGuire, in a romantic ceremony in Sicily today and the bride looked sensational in a strapless white gown with a tasteful half veil, her hair hung in loose curls over her shoulders, but her beaming smile said it all, accentuating her beauty. Karen’s bridesmaids also looked dazzling in pale pink gowns, while the two adorable flower girls wore pretty white dresses. The whole party complimented each other perfectly, but what can you expect from the anchor of TV3’s hottest fashion show, oh and John didn’t look too bad either! The groom wore a three piece grey suit and kept his trademark tightly shaved hair style. The couple looked radiant together as they posed for pictures in the main square outside the Chiesa di Santa Caterina.
The newly weds are reported to be staying in the Grand Hotel Timeo while in Sicily and plan to to stay in Italy to enjoy the islands around Sicily in a bid to save cash on their honeymoon and with 25C heat we are sure they will have a wonderful time.
Speaking to the Irish Daily Mirror before the big day, Karen admitted she would probably be crying walking down the aisle,
“There’s not really nerves, it’s that lovely butterfly feeling coming up. I’m feeling a little bit emotional actually, thinking about it.
“When you print off your wedding booklets and you read down through your vows and read what you’re going to say – that stuff reminds you that we’re actually doing this.
“I’m a total softie anyway, so I know I’m going to be weeping from the moment I arrive in the church. I’m going to need a pitstop half way up the aisle to fix my makeup.”
None of Karen’s Xposé colleagues were invited to the celebration, as the bubbly blonde wanted to keep numbers down and was realistic of the fact that someone had to present the show.
“This is just family and friends – it’s certainly not a massive celebrity wedding at all. They want it to all be about them.And of course, even if all the Xpose girls were invited someone would have had to stay to present the show – and no-one would want to have to pick.”
If the happy wedding pictures are anything to go by we expect the newly weds will be dancing until they early hours, best of luck to them both, they deserve it.
