In the heart of two distinct Irish landscapes, from the quaint village of Macosquin in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, to the serene town of Cavan, emerged a love story that transcended distance, culminating in a magical wedding celebration at the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan in February 2020.  

Robert Tannahill and Jonathan Farrelly found each other through the digital threads of the internet in 2018. Their connection was instant, their conversations vibrant, and soon they found themselves planning their first face-to-face encounter. 

Their first meeting, set in a cosy diner in Cavan, marked the beginning of a beautiful journey. As they shared laughter, dreams, and late-night snacks, it became clear that their bond was something special. Despite the distance between them, their love blossomed effortlessly, bridging the gap between Coleraine and Cavan. 

Six months into their whirlwind romance, Robert couldn’t contain his excitement any longer. On a crisp January evening in 2019, surrounded by the warmth of their shared love, he knelt beside Jonathan, proposing a lifetime of happiness together. With the blessing of Jonathan’s mother, their intimate moment sealed their commitment to each other. 

Their journey to the altar was nothing short of enchanting. On the auspicious date of 20th February 2020, amidst the elegant ambiance of the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan, Robert and Jonathan exchanged vows in a ceremony curated to reflect their unique bond. With Harry, Robert’s son, standing proudly as the best man, and their closest friends by their side, the couple embarked on a new chapter of their lives. 

The wedding day was a tapestry of cherished memories, from the melodious notes of “Tale as Old as Time” guiding them down the aisle to the heartfelt speeches that resonated with love and laughter. Their first dance, swaying to the rhythm of Miley Cyrus’s “When I Look at You,” encapsulated the depth of their affection. 

Amidst the celebration, Robert and Jonathan took a moment to express their gratitude to their cherished suppliers. From Buchanan Jewellers in Coleraine, where their engagement ring sparkled with promise, to the skilled hands of Emma Stewart Cake Design in Omagh, each vendor played a crucial role in bringing their vision to life. 

But it was the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan that truly stole their hearts. With impeccable service, delectable cuisine, and a team that felt like family, the hotel became the perfect backdrop for their love story to unfold. 

“We couldn’t recommend the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan any higher than what we do. From the first day we stepped into the hotel we were made feel so very welcome by Laura, Nicola and Barbara (and the whole team). So many of our guests came away from the wedding and all they could talk about was the service, the quality of the food and the attentiveness of the team in Four Seasons. We would do it all over again just because of the team at the hotel.” 

As they look back on their wedding day, Robert and Jonathan offer a piece of advice to future couples: “cherish every moment, for time is fleeting.” Amidst the hustle and bustle of the day, take a moment to pause, breathe, and bask in the love that surrounds you. 

Their journey didn’t end at the wedding altar. Following their nuptials, they embarked on a brief getaway to London, eager to explore new horizons together. And though their honeymoon was cut short by unforeseen circumstances, their love remained steadfast, a beacon of hope and joy amidst uncertainty. 

In the end, Robert and Jonathan’s love story serves as a testament to the power of love, transcending borders, and overcoming obstacles with unwavering devotion. As they continue to write the pages of their fairy tale, they do so hand in hand, bound by a love that knows no bounds.
