Shauna & Alan

The Couple

1.Tell us a little a bit about how you met

We met at a wedding reception in The Dunloe Hotel in Killarney.

2. Talk us through the proposal (How did he/she pop the big question)

He whisked me off for a romantic weekend away three months after our son, Alex, was born. It was the day of storm "Desmond" in December 2015 and we were staying in the Hotel Europe in Killarney. Trapped in the beautiful surroundings of Killarney Lakes and Mountains he got down on one knee in our lake view room (although there wasn't much to see only huge waves and blowing trees at the time!!)

 The Setting

1. Where was your ceremony?

St. Stephen & John Church, Castleisland 

2. Where was the wedding reception?

Ballygarry House Hotel & Spa

3.Why Ballygarry House Hotel?

It has always been the first choice for any of our family celebrations, weddings, christenings, birthdays etc. and with its incredible reputation we knew there would be nothing to worry about on the day only to relax and enjoy the good food, atmosphere & service.

4. Tell us what was the most memorable part of your day?

Saying our "I Do's" surrounded by all of our close family and friends and also making our "big" entrance into the Pavilion at Ballygarry House.

5. Have you any advice for future couples:

Relax and enjoy every second of the day as it is all very special and take a few moments throughout the day to actually talk to each other also.
