X Factor star Nicky McDonald has married his stunning American girlfriend in a lavish Scottish ceremony at Chatelherauly Park.
The 22-year-old singer couldn’t wait to say “I do” to Brandi Sommers, 22 – with the pair tying the knot just one week after Nicky proposed to her at Donald Trump’s Turnberry resort.

The pair locked eyes whilst Nicky was performing on a cruise ship back in 2017 and have endured in a long distance relationship up until eight weeks ago when they started living with each other.
Nicky then proposed to the blonde beauty after two years together on 31 August and the pair couldn’t wait long to become husband and wife.
He shared the news on social media with a snap of Brandi’s hand with a big diamond ring on it with the caption: “SHE SAID YESSSS” alongside a love heart and wedding ring emoji.
For his big day the Scotsman donned a beige kilt and matching waistcoat, while Brandi opted for a dazzling white floor-length gown, veil and natural make-up.

Although their special day was kept secret, fellow contestants of the popular ITV talent show Sam Bailey, 42 and Luke Friend, 23 were among the guests at the lavish ceremony.
And clearly there are no hard feelings between Nicky and winner of the show Sam Bailey as she was one of the lucky few on the guest list of their secret ceremony.
Luke Friend, who came third on the show, was also invited to their special day and hinted at him being part of their entertainment as he arrived with a guitar in one hand.
The X Factor runner-up rose to fame in 2013 when he came second on the 10th series, making him the first Scottish contestant to reach the final since Leon Jackson in 2007.
