Eileen and Ray first met when Ray was Eileen’s new boss!

Eileen came to work for me in 1995, it was love at first and after some months we started dating. We moved in together in 2003 and have lived happily every after! 

Romantic Ray chose Christmas morning 2007 to pop the question, with the help of their six month old daughter. He gave their daughter the ring and in theory she was supposed to give it to her Mammy. She had other ideas and held onto the sparkler tightly, with Eileen eventually taking it off her because she couldn’t wait any longer! Ray then got down on one knee and popped the question.

Both Eileen and Ray helped plan their wedding, they were in agreement that they both wanted a simple and elegant occasion. As Ray explains, Simple for me and elegant for my wife!   

The joyous ceremony took place in Holy Spirit Church, Kimmage Manor, Dublin 12. Eileen had chosen a sophisticated colour palette of ivory and mushroom. Her striking wedding gown was adorned with lace, giving a romantic vintage feel. The floral arrangements were kept simple with pretty ivory roses dressed with sparkling diamantes. Ray and his grooms party looked dashing in their black suits with ivory waistcoats and matching buttonholes.

Following the ceremony the newlyweds and their guests travelled to Druids Glen Hotel & Resort with its breathtaking setting amidst the Wicklow mountains. Guests enjoyed a refreshing ice cream from a funky ice cream cart followed by an evening of fabulous food, music and plenty of dancing! Eileen and Ray chose Druids Glen as they had visited it previously and loved the hotel, staff and amazing setting.

During the evenings entertainment Ray surprised his wife by singing a very fitting Van Morrison song, ‘Someone Like You’, which went down well with Eileen and all the guests.

We would definitely advise brides and grooms to plan well in advance of their wedding day. Then when the day arrives make sure you keep up with the moment and enjoy every minute, because it goes so quickly! Take half an hour before the meal to spend time alone with your new husband/wife and savour the moment.
