Congratulations to DAYS OF OUR LIVES alum Blake Berris (ex-Nick), who married Alexandra McGuinness in a beautiful ceremony in Ireland on Aug. 26! McGuinness is the daughter of former U2 manager Paul McGuinness, so band members Bono and The Edge were in attendance at the star-studded ceremony. In fact, Bono had been asked to sing the National Anthem at the big Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor fight in Las Vegas, but he turned it down to attend this wedding.
Despite the guest list, the couple’s wedding was a relatively low-key family affair. According to The Vow, the ceremony was held at Killiskey Parish Church at Nun’s Cross near Ashford, near McGuinness’ family home.
Berris’ former DAYS co-star and friend, Kate Mansi (ex-Abigail) was in attendance and described the event as: “Unforgettable — in every way. The wedding and the couple.” She shared a group photo from the reception with the newlyweds as well as former castmate Rachel Melvin (ex-Chelsea), as well as a stunning photo of the venue where the party was held.
The bride and groom celebrated their nuptials in the middle of working on a new project together, the upcoming film Highway in which Berris stars and McGuinness writes and directs. They had been shooting on location in New Mexico earlier in August before traveling to Ireland to tie the knot.
DAYS fans remember Berris for his role as Nick Fallon, who he played from 2006-09 and again from 2012-14. In 2009, he was nominated for the Outstanding Younger Actor Daytime Emmy Award for his work on the soap. McGuinness began her showbiz career as an actress before moving behind the camera to write and direct, making her feature debut with the acclaimed film Lotus Eaters.
We wish the happy couple all the best for a lifetime of happiness, and hope that they enjoy their honeymoon before they go back to work on their movie! For more on your favorite DAYS stars — past and present — keep reading Soaps In Depth magazine!
