Patricia & Conor's Real Wedding

Patricia and Conor spent 18 stressful months planning their wedding between New Zealand and Co. Down. After the perfect dress had been found and the venue hired, everything started to fall into place.  110 guests were invited to both the church and wedding reception and the newlywed couple spent their honeymoon travelling to Kenya and Zanzibar on the holiday of a lifetime.

Conor & Patricia-Childhood Sweethearts

Patricia and Conor met on the school bus when they were both just 11 years old.  After having been friends for years, these childhood sweethearts became a couple, and were together for three and a half years before Conor decided to propose.  They even went to live in New Zealand!

One afternoon, the couple, who were very much in love, decided to go for a walk on the beach and then climb up to the top of a cliff! It was at that moment that Conor decided to bend down on one knee and pop the question. 

For the first few months Patricia wore a fake engagement ring, as her real engagement ring, which the couple chose together, was being made bespoke.

Wedding planning commenced shortly afterwards.
