In what could be a plot from a movie, a 'runaway groom' was located safe and well after disappearing from his wedding reception.

Newlywed Stephen Warren was last seen at the Killashee Hotel in Naas, County Kildare in the early hours of Sunday morning. The 45-year-old Dubliner has gotten married that day. 

After Warren disappeared from the reception, family members and his bride Orlagh raised concerns for his welfare.  The Gardaí announced today that the groom had been located "safe and well".

The Irish Independent reported this morning that, "It is understood that Mr. Warren may have traveled to Cork, where he lived for a number of years. He filled up his car at a station in Laois."

"No further action is required. We would like to thank everyone who assisted in this appeal," the Garda press office has said.
