RTE radio DJ Carl Mullan celebrates a week of nuptial bliss with his now wife Aisling Brennan.

The couple tied the knot in what appeared to be a stunning wedding last week, with the RTE 2FM star posting a photo of himself and his bride holding hands, covered in colorful petals to announce the happy occasion.

The 2FM radio host proposed to his childhood sweetheart in October 2020, admitting he had been in love with Aisling since she was 11. The couple then welcomed their first child Daibhí in August 2021.

Today, the broadcaster shared a message with his new wife and his 213,000 Instagram followers.

“Well @akiloo89 – you survived your first week of marriage to me. Still surreal looking at the photos from that day last week,” he said.

“It was truly the most amazing day and we are so grateful to have been able to celebrate it with all the people who mean the most to us around the world.”

“Still buzzing, but mostly buzzing to now be married to my best friend. And for anyone who asked – yes, Angie and Daibhí were there with us that day too.”

Along with the caption, he shared brand new photos from the wedding, taken by talented wedding photographer John Gillooley, who Carl described as a “joy” to work with.

The stunning new photos come after the couple nearly hit a dead end when they attempted to cross Omey Island as the tide rushed in.

Omey Island in Claddaghduff is a tidal island. accessible only at low tide every day by crossing a few kilometers of firm sandy beach, either by car or on foot.

Posting on Instagram, Carl wrote: “Guys, as a family today we learned a valuable lesson. That lesson was…Don’t let Aisling be in charge of reading the signs.”

“It all started so well,” he said, posting a photo of what appeared to be a clear beach after his wife read the tide times on the posted timetable and tried to drive.

However, the tide soon rushed in, shrouding the sandy road that provides access to the island. Luckily, his family had traveled back in time and seen the road disappear into the tide. If they hadn’t, it would have been very difficult to get their car back until the next tide.
