Over the years Kian Egan has reached the top of the charts 14 times as a member of the pop group Westlife. On May 8, 2009, however, the singer discovered how it felt to be on top of the world as he exchanged vows with his long-time love, singer/actress Jodi Albert.
As Barbados holds memories of a romantic getaway the year before, the happy couple chose the Caribbean island for their “I do.” The white garments of both the bride and groom mirroring the pristine grains of sand surrounding the island retreat, guests looked on as the groom presented his love with a wedding band to accompany the engagement ring which has graced her finger since Christmas Day 2007. The joyful refrain of a gospel choir signing “Love Is In The Air” floating on the breeze, the couple were pronounced husband and wife on Turtle Beach at Grand House Hotel.
Although the groom’s father, weak from cancer treatments, was unable to take part in his son’s happiest day, he was no doubt never far from Kian Egan’s thoughts as he and his bride received well wishes from family and friends during a reception at a nearby mansion, the Herald reports.
Fans will be offered an intimate glimpse into the nuptials in an upcoming edition of OK! magazine.
