1. Tell us a little about how you met
We originally met in school in Macroom, left school in 2001 and met again on an online dating site 14 years later in 2014, went on our first date then and had our first kiss and the rest of history as they say!
2. Talk us through the proposal (How did he/she pop the big question?)
Ciarán proposed on my birthday weekend away in Jan 2017 in a hotel in Killarney, I was getting ready in the room to head out and Ciarán got down on one knee with the box, totally shocked and surprised but it was very romantic just what I always pictured, but never had told this to Ciarán of this so better again!
1. Where was your ceremony?
Ceremony was in Cloughduv Church in Cork, my local parish church.
2. Where was your wedding reception?
Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa of course.
3. Why Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa?
When we went to see it the first day and saw the place I think we both knew it was the place we both wanted. The setting and hotel are amazing. Also we had heard raving reports about the hotel, staff and food from other people so that was another tick for us.
4. Tell us what was the most memorable part of your day?
Walking up the aisle with my Dad and seeing Ciaran ahead, so surreal but exciting, I will never forget that feeling.
5. Have you any advice for future couples?
Enjoy every minute of the day and take it all in as the day goes so fast! Make the day about you and your new husband.
