We decided on the date of the 29th of December 2016, it is a special date for me as it is my grandmothers birthday and my grandparents wedding date too. It also happens to be my matron of honour’s birthday.
We are getting legally married in suite X11 at The Twelve in Galway with both of our mothers as our witnesses . We have written our own civil ceremony which is incredibly personal to us.
We are having a religious ceremony and reception with 100 of our closest friends and families at Ross Castle, Galway exactly one year later.
My matron of honour and her husband had their civil and religious ceremonies exactly one year apart which was the inspiration for us doing so. The day we get legally married will be intimate and just for us. We like the idea of having no stress and being in the middle of wedding planning now I am very happy with our decision. We will be able to focus on our commitment and have this special moment take place without an audience.
