Jess Redden and Rob Kearney are loved up and enjoying their honeymoon together.

The former Ireland rugby player and pharmacy student tied the knot at Trump Hotel Doonbeg in Co. Clare on Friday.

Now, the couple are soaking up the sun on their honeymoon after jetting off to an exotic unknown location earlier this week.

They sat in first class on their flight, with Jess sharing snaps from their spacious airplane seats.

She has also been updating her followers since landing in paradise with photos of their luxurious breakfast, glasses of champagne, and fancy dinners.

Sharing a snap from her date night wearing a green dress, a hairband, and some gold strappy shoes, Jess declared that she was the “happiest wife in the [world].”

She then held a Q&A with her Instagram followers where she revealed that she would be changing her last name from Redden to Kearney.

She said: “In my opinion you just do whatever you want to do don’t worry about other people’s opinion. I am changing it to Kearney – a good 10 years of spade work to get in to the family so they’re not getting rid of me easily.”

Jess also revealed how she remembered her dad Brian – who passed away last year – on her wedding day by choosing a church that he would have loved.

“It was just stunning – my dad always loved churches so we used to always go and say a prayer in different ones when we went away so it was important to me to pick one that he would love! St. Senan’s in Kilrush is magnificent.”

She then offered some suggestions on other ways to remember a parent who is no longer alive at a wedding, including reserving a seat in their honour with some photos on it, placing a locket in the bouquet so they can walk you down the aisle, and writing a letter to them on your wedding day.
