Pierce Brosnan has paid a loving tribute to his wife Keely Shaye Smith on their anniversary.

The Hollywood actor shared a series of snaps of the couple on his Instagram page, revealing that they have been loved up for nearly 30 years.

The post featured pictures from Pierce and Keely’s wedding day, which took place in the summer of 2001.

Keely looked simply beautiful on the day wearing a white strapless gown, accessorising with a tiara and pearl drop earrings.

Meanwhile Pierce, who starred as James Bond at the time, looked suave as ever wearing a black tuxedo.

He wrote: “Twenty eight years ago this day, the 4th of the 8th we met in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico…and married in Ireland at Ashford Castle three years later on the 8th of the 4th…4884 …my love always, you have made my life one of joy and happiness, light of my life, love.”

Fans of the actor loved the sweet post, with one writing: “Such a beautiful couple, Happy Anniversary to you both!”

“Oh, lovely! Happy anniversary,” a second said.

While a third added: “Beautiful then, beautiful now.”

Pierce and Keely met back in 1994 in Mexico at an after party while filming Bond Film ‘The World Is Not Enough’.

Keely was working as a journalist at the time and the rest, as they say, is history.

The pair were wed in 2001 in an intimate yet extravagant £1.5m private wedding in Mayo’s Ballintubber Abbey followed by a reception of about 100 people in the stunning Ashford Castle.

Sticking to his roots, The Chieftains played during the wedding ceremony and reception and the ceremony was performed by Mgr John Fleming, rector of the Irish College in Rome, a close friend of the groom.

Following their dream wedding, Pierce and Keely went on to welcome two children together, sons Dylan, 24, and Paris, 20.

Before meeting Keely, the award-winning actor was married to Australian actress Cassandra Harris. The pair married in 1980 and welcomed a son named Sean together, before she tragically died of ovarian cancer in 1991 at the age of 43.
