Two sparklers, one wedding and a whole lot of love

Novemeber 18, 2016 – Hotel Doolin, Co. Clare

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

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.


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
each other 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.’
