Clarke Wedding

Many congratulations to the distinguished Ulster golfer, Darren Clarke OBE, and his new bride, Allison Campbell, on their marriage in the Abaco Islands, Bahamas, where they have a home.

The Clarkes now live near Portrush in County Antrim.

The wedding was held at a beach on one of the islands.

According to Clarke's website, the ceremony was a private family affair attended by his sons Tyrone and Conor, other family members and his manager, Chubby Chandler.

It said the "top secret plans have been kept under wraps for a good while now".

The couple met in 2009 after being introduced by Clarke's fellow Major winner, Portrush's Graeme McDowell MBE.

They became engaged just before Christmas 2011

On 29th August 1970, my fiance Rosemary Campbell married me, Les Clarke, in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, Bahamas.

So we became Bahamian Campbell-Clarkes 42 years before Allison Campbell and Darren Clarke.

We were living in The Bahamas as I was working for an American pharmaceutical company in Freeport.
