Congratulations! Barbara Bush, the daughter of former president George W. Bush, is married, as she tied the knot with Craig Louis Coyne in an "intimate" ceremony that also included her grandfather, George H.W. Bush!

George Bush paid tribute to his late mother, Barbara Bush, in the post, writing that his daughter and mother share similar traits.

George W. Bush paid homage to his late mother in his Instagram post, writing that his newly Wednesday daughter "is named for a unique and strong woman". "I'm so proud to be this beauties sister".

The family-only ceremony was held outside, overlooking the ocean at Walker's Point, where the elder Mr Bush - who is now 94 - lives.

The bride - named after her grandmother, former First Lady Barbara Bush, who passed away earlier this year - married screenwriter Craig Coyne.

The photographer, Paul Morse, posted three photos from the ceremony, one showing how the couple was showered with white flower petals as they walked down the aisle after the ceremony.
