Today’s wedding brings us to the Newpark Hotel in Kilkenny with a little stop in Australia along the way!

Our bride Ruth, and her husband Jason come from Waterford, where they met 14 years ago while they both worked in Heatons. They now live in Melbourne Australia where they planned their April wedding from.

“Jason proposed on a beach in Cape Tribulation which is in the Daintree Rainforest in Far North Queensland, Australia. On St. Stephen’s Day we stopped on our journey at this lovely secluded beach and Jason asked me if I would like to lie out on the beach for a while. While lying out, Jason was drawing in the sand. He asked me to look at what he had drawn. He had drawn a heart with our initials at both sides. I thought it was lovely and I laid back down. He then said “have a look I have drawn something else”, I got up and looked and couldn’t believe what I saw – he had placed the beautifully wrapped ring box in the centre of the heart! He then asked me to marry him and of course I said yes!” explained Ruth.

After lots of online research and recommendations from friends and family, the couple planned their wedding for April, 30th 2016, with their ceremony in St. Abbans Church, Adamstown, Enniscorthy, and the following reception in the Newpark Hotel.

“We estimated our budget and of course went over a little from our estimate to get what we really wanted. We had everything we wanted, but we would have loved another week on honeymoon!” added Ruth.

The couple chose a colourful spring theme with mint bridesmaids and added lots of vibrant shades of yellow, pink and coral through the flowers, which included Ruth’s favourite bloom, the Gerbera.

“We wanted it to be a fun and relaxed day for everyone. Jason went with a black suit with a grey waistcoat and the groomsmen wore grey suits to match his waistcoat – we did it this way to be a little different. I found my wedding gown in Luv Bridal in Melbourne, there were tears on both occasions that I tried it on so I knew it was the one for me!” said Ruth.

“The day was absolutely fantastic and it was all we could have ever asked for! We enjoyed every second and would do it all again in the morning! There were so many highlights, but here are a few! The highlights for Jason were, driving us both to the reception in the vintage Jaguar, having the pipers playing us into the reception and the biggest highlight for him was seeing me walk up the aisle! The highlights for me were, seeing my parents reaction when they saw me in my dress, the flowers that Jason’s mother organised and the biggest highlight for me was seeing Jason at the top of the aisle. Another highlight for us was the video of our friends in Australia with messages for us on the day,” added Ruth.
