Fair City star Daithí Mac Suibhne has married his long-term girlfriend Aisling Mulligan in a romantic ceremony.

The Irish actor, who is best known for playing Emmet O’Brien in the RTÉ soap, tied the knot at the Merrion Hotel in Dublin on July 4th.

The couple, who met while they were studying at University College Dublin, had been engaged since 2015 and finally got to have their special day in front of 25 friends and family members.

The beautiful bride wore a dress by luxury bridal house Atelier Pronovias while the groom wore a navy Remus Uomo tux with a pair of velvet Kurt Geiger loafers and a tie, pocket square, and shirt from Pinstripe Punk in Dundalk.

Speaking about their big day to RSVP Live, Daithí said that the small guestlist suited the couple perfectly.

“We weren’t planning on having a big wedding anyway. I know it is a hotel but it was still a really intimate venue and it was really cosy inside,” he said.

“We have been engaged since 2015, so it has been six years and we weren’t in a huge rush. Holding off was the best plan for us because neither of us would have had much time to organise the day.

“We pushed things back and then a pandemic happened and towards the end of last year we started to tentatively look towards organising something for this year.

“It wasn’t the wedding we initially planned, we wanted something a bit more laid back and breezy.”

Daithí and Aisling, who is a barrister, had originally planned to get married in Portugal two years ago.

“We decided to push it back to work commitments at the time,” the actor continued.

“We foolishly thought we might be able to get married abroad this year and then we quickly came to the realisation that it would have been very irresponsible to have people travel from several different countries.

“My best man was in London, a groomsman was in Northern Ireland and Aisling’s sister lives in France,” he explained.
