Fionnuala + Jonathan

How did you meet?

A nightclub in his hometown! I was out for my brothers 21st birthday!

When did you know they were the one? 

Quite soon really! I had just started university and soon realised I wasn’t interested in anybody else!

What are your three favourite attributes of your partner?

Kindness, ambition and loyalty

Who proposed and how? 

He proposed on a yacht in Dubai in front of the burj al arab, it was the most amazing day and we have some amazing photographs from it!

Where did you fall in love with your dress and why? 

Ivy and White in Lisburn, they had the best selection of dresses and a few other made with love dresses caught my eye but when I tried Harlow on I knew it was the one! The fit, the material and the intricate lace was so gorgeous

What advice would you tell other brides?

Relax, everything will work out on the day. All the small stuff you worry about will feel so insignificant when you are standing with your family and friends marrying your person!

What was the best moment for you at your wedding?

The best moment of the wedding was after the canapes were over and we had most of the photographs taken, we had a private moment to ourselves enjoying a glass of cava while the guests were lead to dinner. It allowed us to take it all in and really enjoy the moment.
