Jess Redden and Rob Kearney have officially registered to get married.

The couple got engaged in 2019 with a romantic New York proposal and were initially set to get married in June 2021, but brought their wedding date forward to November 2020 after Jess’ beloved father Brian became ill.

Jess was hoping her father would get to walk her down the aisle, but he sadly passed away last September following a battle with prostate cancer.

The 28-year-old and her rugby star boyfriend have been keeping quiet about wedding plans over the last few months but revealed today that they had officially registered to get married.

Over on her Instagram Stories, Jess shared a snap beaming beside Rob as they held their green marriage registration form and said: “Great start to the day! Getting close now.”

In Ireland, anyone planning to get married must give a minimum of three months’ notice to their local Civil Registration Service, which means Rob and Jess are due to finally tie the knot very soon.

It comes after the pharmacist-in-training celebrated her hen do over the weekend at Ballintubbert House in Co. Laois.

She took to Instagram to reveal that she was kept in the dark about her hen party activities and was simply “told to wear activewear” before heading off.

When Jess arrived to the party, she discovered that her friends had organised a Bikram yoga class, where she was greeted by a life-size cutout of her fiancé.

Her loved ones had also decorated the venue with lovely photos and memories of Jess, as well as custom Rob Kearney face masks, a cocktail cart, and - in true hen party fashion - a hilarious penis cake.

The bride-to-be said that she had “the time of her life” at the party and posted a photo posing beside Rob’s cardboard cutout.

She captioned the post: “Filled with so much love. Last fling before the ring #gettingreddenfortheweddin.”
