Garda Eimear met her perfect match, Grace a healthcare assistant, online in 2012. They were both swept off their feet by one another and coincidentally planned proposals for the same week in 2015. Luckily Grace beat Eimear to the punch with a romantic proposal at Two Mile Gate, Killaloe but they both got a gorgeous sparkler to show off (Eimear already gotten a ring for Grace).

The lovebirds got planning and chose to celebrate their day at the Hotel Doolin in Clare on November 18, 2016. They invited 95 guests to their rustic themed celebrations and everyone had the best day.

THE WEDDING DETAILS

Grace got her dress in Amore Mio, Killaloe. Eimear was kitted out by the excellent team at A Hand Tailored Suit in Dublin, with a bespoke three-piece suit. The brides went with simple floral arrangements with bouquets for themselves and their mothers. The cake was designed and made by Sarah’s Cakes in Kildysart, Clare and the cake topper was made by Bernie McCullough of Treats in Newport. Their Invites were created by On Silver Pond Invitations, Adare and the couple were delighted with them.  

Teresa Quinn from the county registrars office officiated the ceremony. She put the brides at ease and performed an excellent ceremony. Some of Grace’s friends provided traditional music for an hour in the evening and were then replaced by The Busker, Christine Keane and Paul Fahy. “They were brilliant and had the dancefloor packed all night,” Grace remembers.

They had Ciara McCullough of The Tilted Tripod capture their day perfectly and the couple were absolutely delighted with the end result and her dedication to the job. “She was amazing to deal with, and did much more than take photos. Words don’t do justice to how much she helped us, from taking the photos to dressing the bridal party, to giving her flats to Grace for the night,” Eimear remembers.

The brides share the same favourite moment from the day; seeing eachother in their wedding outfits for the first time. “When I saw Grace in her dress, my heart stopped,” said Eimear. “When I first laid my eyes on Eimear in her stunning suit, all my dreams came true,” gushed Grace.

The ladies decided on a few days of relaxation in sunny Lanzarote for their honeymoon which they booked through Lynda in Falcon Travel.

How great was it working with The Tilted Tripod?

“Ciara was amazing. Our mothers want to adopt her! She could not have done more for us. She deserves every award going. She was just flawless, and really put us at ease. put us at ease.”
