A big day in store for Ais­ling and Gareth

Bray People - - News -

BRIDE-TO-BE Ais­ling Pren­der­gast thought her boyfriend was jok­ing when he pro­posed to her in Spain but now she is only days away from her dream wed­ding.

Ais­ling (30) from Kil­na­managh, Tal­laght is due to marry fi­ancée Gareth Fletcher (28) from Spring­field on St. Valen­tine’s Day in St. Mark’s Church, Tal­laght be­fore head­ing to Sum­mer­hill House, En­niskerry for their re­cep­tion.

Ais­ling and Gareth first met 11 years ago but the course of true love never runs smooth and the cou­ple split af­ter a brief pe­riod. How­ever two and a half years ago their paths crossed again and it was sec­ond time lucky for the cou­ple.

‘We moved in pretty much straight away and ten months ago we had a baby boy, Ryan. At first get­ting mar­ried on St. Valen­tine’s Day started as a bit of a joke and be­cause we only booked our wed­ding 14 months ago I didn’t think it would be avail­able but we rang Sum­mer­hill House be­cause I al­ways wanted to get mar­ried there and it was free and so was the church so we de­cided to go for it.’

Ais­ling and Gareth were on hol­i­days in Spain when Gareth sur­prised her by ask­ing if she would get en­gaged. Think­ing he was mess­ing she said yes and even when they went ring shop­ping and picked out a ring she thought he was still mess­ing. How­ever when he got down on one knee and pro­posed to her in the mid­dle of a show in Spain she re­alised he was se­ri­ous and said yes straight away.’

Ais­ling said she hopes the day will be ex­tra spe­cial with the feel­ing of ro­mance in the air and said that at least they won’t ever for­get their spe­cial day.

Flower girl on the day will be Ais­ling’s daugh­ter, eight year old Han­nah, while baby Ryan will be the page­boy.

The cou­ple will hon­ey­moon in Egypt al­though Ais­ling con­fessed she is a lit­tle ner­vous at the thoughts of leav­ing the chil­dren for a week but no doubt they will be spoilt rot­ten while she is away!
