As his Northern Ireland team-mates prepared for their final warm-up match against Slovakia on Friday night, the 25-year-old star returned to his home town for the wedding at the Independent Methodist Church in Cookstown.

The couple met when they were just 16-years-old, as pupils at Cookstown High School.

Stuart and Juneve got engaged during a romantic break in Paris in 2013 and have a four-year-old daughter named Pixie.

With the clock ticking, Stuart is due to arrive back the training camp in France on Monday, ahead of the team’s first match against Poland on Sunday.

The former Coagh United player made his Northern Ireland debut in May 2011, in a match against Wales.

The couple’s reception was held at the Castle Leslie Estate in Co Monaghan.

Among those to wish the couple well, was boxing superstar Carl Frampton, who tweeted: “All the best to @dallas_stuart & @juneve1 who tie the knot today.”
