Mrs McConaughey's newlywed glow as she steps out with her husband

25 JUNE 2012

Two weeks after tying the knot, married life clearly agrees with Matthew and Camila McConaughey.

The newlyweds barely took their eyes off each other as they attended the LA premiere of Magic Mike on Sunday evening.

Dressed in a thigh-skimming metallic blue dress and with a megawatt smile to match, Brazil-born model Camila lit up the screening as she arrived on the arm of her new husband.

And Matthew couldn't have looked prouder as he wrapped his arms around his bride.

Their appearance not only gave fans a first glimpse of the new Mr and Mrs McConaughey, but also of their wedding bands.

Some 120 guests witnessed them exchange rings during their 'island-beach-meets-Texas' themed wedding on June 9.

Camila's is custom-made, designed to match her rose-cut diamond engagement ring, while Matthew's gold band is engraved with the numbers 6.22.

That figure corresponds to his favourite passage in the Bible – Matthew 6:22 –  which reads: "The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light."

Also attending the premiere for Magic Mike, which centres on the life of a male stripper, was Channing Tatum and his wife Jenna Dewan.

The Step Up actress followed Camila's short and sexy theme with a sequined black dress, her hair held back in a high ponytail.

The film was inspired by Channing's previous job as a stripper in Tampa, Florida.

Speaking of that period in his life, the Dear John actor said: "It was a crazy one. I really enjoyed dancing. That was my favourite part of the job. I didn’t really like taking my clothes off.

"But I made good money and it kept the party going. It was great – for a while."
