Our very own brides-to-be spill their engagement stories and pick out their must haves from our New Bridal Edit.


 

How did you meet your other half? Was it love at first sight?
Definitely not love at first sight! ðŸ¤£ We’re from the same town and knew of each other, then we started working together when we were 16/17 in a local restaurant and were friends for 3 years before we started going out.


How did he propose?
We got engaged 4.4.17 in Galway - it was very sweet and I balled my eyes out for 3 hours straight. Ross was on two knees before I managed to get a “yes!” out.


What is your vision for your wedding?
Intimate, relaxed and a bitta craic! We're getting married in The Old Rectory (Killyman, just outside Dungannon) such a beautiful venue ran by the nicest people - Paul & Emma. Our wedding theme is quite simple, we don’t really have a colour scheme in place or many traditional elements.


What would the wedding look like if your groom planned it?
It would be in a bar with a tenth of the budget we have now. ðŸ™ˆ


What would be your dream hen do? No budgets!
I can’t think of anywhere I’d really like to go. It sounds cheesy but as long as I was with my friends and family, I’d be happy going anywhere.


When did you know he was the one?
I was pretty sure before we started going out, it was a big decision as we were friends and we didn't want to lose our friendship if we didn’t work out romantically. Thankfully it did! He balances me out, he’s the complete opposite to me!

 

 

How did you meet your other half? Was it love at first sight?
We met through friends. It definitely wasn’t love at first sight ðŸ˜„


How did he propose?
We went down to Enniskillen, to stay in the Bubble domes. I was told it was a weekend away with Ryan’s sister and her husband. But that was just to throw me off. It was an unexpected surprise.


What is your vision for your wedding?
We probably will have a small wedding, with just our close family and friends. We are getting married at Hillmount House in Larne. It’s a really lovely old Victorian House. We both don’t really like a big fuss, so hopefully a very relaxed and a calm day.


What would the wedding look like if your groom planned it?
Ryan is a bit car mad, so he probably would get caught up in picking the car to get us there, and the rest would more than likely be forgotten.


What would be your dream hen do? No budgets!
I would love to go somewhere really sunny, for a proper beach holiday. Bora Bora would be lovely!


When did you know he was the one?
Probably when we went away for a long weekend. I realised he didn’t annoy me. 😂 Ryan always puts people around him before himself, so I probably knew when I realised how kind and caring he was.

 

 

How did you meet your other half? Was it love at first sight?
Eight years ago, after a night out he left me and my friends’ home - I had a boyfriend at the time so I went home and dumped him that night 😅 - so yeah, I’d say it was love at first sight.


How did he propose?
For valentine’s day he got a night in Lough Eske for us to stay in April with my dog Bailey. I thought nothing of it but when we went for the stay, he had made me a cute scrap book of all our memories. I still didn’t catch on, so he asked me did he have to get down on one knee? Turns out he had written ‘will you marry me’ on the book but I didn’t see it (woops)! But was all very cute!


What is your vision for your wedding?
I’ve just booked my venue this week in Cabra Castle Co. Cavan. It was the first and last place we viewed. I haven’t really got time to think of themes or colours yet – but I’m sure it will low-key & simple.


What would the wedding look like if your groom planned it?
I don't even want to think about it, there would be dogs everywhere!


What would be your dream hen do? No budgets!
I think out in a yacht somewhere sunny with lots of cocktails probably in Miami or something fab! ðŸ˜Ž

 

 

Congratulations to our three gorgeous girls and their brave fiancés, we wish you every happiness and can’t wait to see you enjoy your big day!
