It’s a g’day as Lynda and Jimmy walk down the aisle

Irish Examiner - County - - Front page -

LYNDA O’DONO­VAN and Jimmy Lor­dan planned the per­fect big day in Cork all the way from Aus­tralia.

Lynda, from Blar­ney, and Jimmy, from Pas­sage West, have been liv­ing in Perth since 2011.

They were wed re­cently in St Mary’s Water­loo, Blar­ney, and held their re­cep­tion in the Radis­son Blu Ho­tel, Lit­tle Is­land, Cork.

Pho­tog­ra­pher Adrian O’Neill cap­tured the big day on cam­era in­clud­ing a photo-shoot in Blar­ney Cas­tle.

The bride’s sis­ters lent their sup­port with Tara O’Dono­van as maid of hon­our and Grace O’Meara as brides­maid, as did her school friends Karen McCarthy and Linda Ruby in the role of brides­maids. Am­ber Sal­man, the groom’s niece, was flower girl.

The groom’s friend Neil O’Brien was best man while his brother Stephen Long and cousin Shane Atkin­son were grooms­men along with a friend, James Twomey.

The bride’s nephew Michael O’Meara was page­boy. The cou­ple first met through Lynda’s sis­ter Tara who knew Jimmy through vol­un­tary work for a Be­laru­sian or­phan­age.

They be­came an item in sum­mer 2006 with their first date in Glo­ria Jean’s on Pa­trick’s Street, Cork.

They got en­gaged in Novem­ber 2015 in Bells Rapids, Swan Val­ley, Western Aus­tralia. “It was very warm; we were shel­ter­ing from Ozzie sun. We be­gan chat­ting un­der a tree and then Jimmy pro­duced a ring from his pocket and dropped to one knee. I was ec­static,” said Lynda.

For their hon­ey­moon the new­ly­weds trav­elled back to Perth, tak­ing in Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land; Venice, Italy; Prague, Czech Repub­lic; Is­tan­bul, Turkey; and Bali, In­done­sia; on their way.

The bride is a high school teacher and Jimmy is a civil en­gi­neer.

They re­side for now in Perth with their beloved Ir­ish wolfhound ‘Peig’ but Cork will al­ways be home.
