Wedding Photographer Limerick, Castle Oaks House Hotel wedding present to you:
A schoolyard romance for Ciara & Rob
Childhood sweethearts Ciara and Rob, from Dublin, met while in their fourth year of secondary school. Ciara was won over on their first date — a school trip to Dublin Zoo — and from then the couple were inseparable. The love birds had lived together in Thailand for two years before Rob whisked Ciara away to a hotel in Khanom, where he had prepared a picnic on the roof. “He told me it was to celebrate that it was two years to the day when we left Ireland to go travel. I went to the edge to have a look at the amazing view and when I turned around he was on one knee!” says Ciara.
The pair returned to Ireland for their wedding, holding a traditional ceremony in Toor Church, Co Tipperary, where Ciara’s parents were married 35 years previously, and where her grandparents live locally.
After their intimate ceremony, Ciara and Rob held a drinks reception in her grandparents’ pub before they celebrated for the night at the Castle Oaks House Hotel on the banks of the River Shannon.
Ciara found her elegant lace dress online on Australian website graceloveslace.com and her bridesmaids wore blush-toned midi dresses from Monsoon, while the groomsmen were suited by Love Suits, Dublin.
Ciara and Rob will shortly be heading off to enjoy their dream honeymoon in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
