It’s a Blueti­ful Day

Bono snubs Ve­gas gig to see former U2 man­ager walk daugh­ter up aisle

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - NEWS - By Eoin Reynolds news@mailon­sun­day.ie

BONO spurned the op­por­tu­nity to sing the na­tional an­them ahead of last night’s Conor McGre­gor fight in Las Ve­gas, opt­ing in­stead to watch his old friend Paul McGuin­ness give away his daugh­ter, Alexan­dra.

Proud fa­ther McGuin­ness sported a royal blue suit while Alexan­dra looked el­e­gant in her flow­ing gown and long veil, sur­rounded by flower girls dressed in ivory.

The bride walked up the aisle to marry Amer­i­can ac­tor Blake Ber­ris at a cer­e­mony at Nun’s Cross Church in Ash­ford, Co. Wick­low. Blake – who plays Nick Fal­lon on US TV show Days of Our Lives – also starred in Pretty Lit­tle Liars.

Bono and The Edge broke off from U2 obli­ga­tions to be with the leg­endary rock man­ager on his daugh­ter’s big day.

Look­ing on from the aisles, Bono, dressed in black and wear­ing his trade­mark sun­glasses, was ac­com­pa­nied by his wife Ali Hew­son. The Edge looked sharp in a blue suit and white shirt, with his ev­er­p­re­sent beanie on his head.

The wed­ding re­cep­tion took place at Mr McGuin­ness’s home in An­namoe.

Mean­while, with Bono oth­er­wise en­gaged, Imelda May was given the chance to show her tal­ent to a mas­sive world­wide au­di­ence in Las Ve­gas.
