How did you meet and get engaged?
We met at the Galway Races In 2016. Both from Kilkenny with no friends in common! A complete by chance meet. Some would say fate! We love going back to Galway to relive the memories. We got engaged in the Amalfi Coast on June 23rd 2018. Padraig surprised me with a trip to the Amalfi Coast for my 30th birthday. We had the most amazing trip driving the length of the coast taking in every charming town. It wasn’t until we got to our last stop (Ravello) on our last day that he got down on one knee and gave me the biggest surprise and best birthday present. We were at the highest point looking out over the Amalfi Coast and right as I asked the lovely obliging tourist to take a photo of us he decided to seize the moment and pop the question! So luckily we have the most perfect photo that captures the happiness of the moment.
Describe your wedding:
Our wedding was a winter wonderland theme. We kept it very traditional with hunter green and red as the main colours with touches of gold to give that Christmas sparkle. I had 4 of my gorgeous nieces as flowergirls and they wore the most adorable tulle sequin dresses. Our flowers and decorations consisted of pine cones, holly and berries which really added to the Christmas theme. I absolutely loved our flowers and decor. It made it very special for us that our neighbours were are florists. They went above and beyond and we can’t thank them enough.https://www.weddingsonline.ie/blog/a-christmas-wedding-with-a-winter-wonderland-theme/
