Today, newlyweds Doug and Shanice Gore are in true wedded bliss, overlooking the North Coast from a private villa in Ocho Rios, St Ann.

The couple, who’d planned to honeymoon in Italy following their wedding on Saturday, have had to lay low for a bit.

However, after two years of dating, followed by six years together, the pro race car driver and customs broker Doug Gore and Mia Hair Artistry principal Shanice Witter, said their ‘I do’s’, witnessed by family and well-wishers.

The duo tied the knot at Frankfort Villa in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

Shanice wore a beaded spaghetti-strapped trumpet dress in ivory, complete with a panel train and chapel veil by Francesca Miranda.

Doug kept it cool in a linen slate grey suit from Men’s Warehouse.

Tie Di Knot principal Shelle Parchment orchestrated the whole ordeal in partnership with the bride-to-be, and for décor, assisted the Tai Flora Luxe team in executing a truly whimsical and verdant beachfront fairytale setting.

Post-nuptials photographs were taken on the property, just before Doug and Shanice were re-introduced to guests as husband and wife.

Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 Yendi Phillipps was the emcee, and with DJ Bambino, queued up Beyoncé’s End Of Time.

Simo’s Bread and Catering kept guests satisfied with a scrumptious dinner al fresco.

Tami Hoyow provided the three-tiered naked Vanilla cake with Cookie & Cream filling.

A little hashtag humour for ya…Shanice #doesthedougie and for Doug, it was love at first sight. Together the two are happily married and plan to live #GOREgeouslyeverafter.
