We met… on the first day of a three year course we had both signed up to do. We both arrived at the wrong venue so we ended up going into the course late. I thought Steven was lovely but nearly fell off the chair when he told me he was a dairy farmer.

Our proposal… was in Sorrento in Italy. We stayed in a hilltop resort surrounded by beautiful lemon trees and he proposed under one of the trees. It was beautiful.

My hair and makeup… My bridesmaid Angela did myself and my mother’s hair and we got someone local to do the bridesmaids. Susan Ryan, a makeup artist from my home town in Wexford did my makeup.

We chose our venue because… We chose Austria as we wanted a winter wedding in a beautiful resort with good skiing. It was that and more. Our wedding co-ordinator recommended the castle Schloss Prielau and it was amazing. Such a beautiful venue and the food was stunning.

We chose our photographer because… we loved his portfolio. Klaus Bauer was a brilliant choice. I was thrilled with the end result and it didn’t feel like the whole day was spent taking photos.
