This couple’s dreams came true when they tied the knot in beautiful Jamaica.

Leila Goddard and Brendan Gillen jetted off to the Caribbean island for their perfect wedding.

And joined by sons Indie-Kai, one, and Cairo-Lavelle, eight, it was everything they had hoped for.

Leila and Brendan, from Portchester, made their vows in a gazebo on Club Riu’s beach in the picturesque Ocho Rios area.

Indie-Kai and Cairo-Lavelle did a good job as their mum’s page boys, holding out her beautiful white gown.

The couple were joined by close family members.

‘I just thought it was a beautiful place and some where we’d always wanted to go so we decided to do it together and have an amazing wedding,’ explains Leila.

‘It was beautiful. The wedding was perfect.’

The family stayed in Jamaica after the big day to soak up the sun, giving Leila and Brendan a honeymoon to remember.

Now back from their April wedding, the newlyweds held a party for family and friends at the Holiday Inn in Southsea at the weekend.

They dressed up in their wedding clothes again to make the celebration really special.

‘We wanted to do that for people who couldn’t make it,’ adds Leila.
