Mairead, from Freemount, and David, from Aughrim, Dromina, were mar­ried in St Michael’s Church, Freemount, by fam­ily friend Fr John Cam­pion.

The new­ly­weds crossed the Cork-Kerry bor­der for their re­cep­tion, at Muck­ross Park Ho­tel in Kil­lar­ney.

Mairead’s sis­ters Ca­tri­ona Collins and Siob­han Mo­ran and sis­ter-in-law Emma Guiney were her brides­maids.

David’s friend David O’Sul­li­van was best man and his broth­ers-in-law Colin Ryan and Mark Kelle­her were grooms­men.

The groom’s nieces Kate Ellen Ryan and Josephine Kelle­her were flower girls and the bride’s neph­ews Ryan and Jamie Collins and Matthew Mo­ran and the groom’s nephew Joe Ryan were page boys.

Mairead and David have known one an­other for most of their lives and started dat­ing four years ago.

“The photo-shoot in the grounds of Muck­ross Park Ho­tel was one of our top high­lights. It was so much fun work­ing with the con­sum­mate pro­fes­sion­als, Ian and Riona, whose vi­brant per­son­al­i­ties made this ex­pe­ri­ence such great fun and very re­lax­ing,” said the bride, who sourced her dress in Say I Do in Mi­dle­ton, Co Cork. “It is a mem­ory we will al­ways trea­sure.”
