APROPOSAL in France led to wed­ding bells in Kin­sale for Dawn Nolan and Ryan McVeigh. The cou­ple first met when Ryan was work­ing for the Methodist Church in Dou­glas as a youth worker.

“Ryan pro­posed to me when we vis­ited the chateau in Lunéville, France, dur­ing the year I was work­ing as pri­mary school lan­guage as­sis­tant in Nancy, France,” said the bride.

Dawn, from Car­ri­ga­line, and Ryan, from New­tow­nards, Co Down, ex­changed vows re­cently in Kin­sale Methodist Church in a cer­e­mony held by Fr Char­lie Ny­han as­sisted by Rev­erend Bill Mul­lally, and held their re­cep­tion in The Tri­dent Ho­tel, Kin­sale

Their photographer, Agnes Stodolny, Bracket Stu­dio, cap­tured the big day on cam­era, in­clud­ing a photo-shoot at scenic Charles Fort. Dawn’s par­ents Estelle and Kevin Nolan and Ryan’s fa­ther Eddy McVeigh, along with Dawn’s grand­fa­ther Si­mon Mor­gan and Ryan’s grand­mother Mar­garet McVeigh, helped the new­ly­weds cel­e­brate.

The bride also vis­ited her grand­fa­ther, Joseph Nolan, be­fore the cer­e­mony.

Tak­ing on brides­maid du­ties were Jodie Nolan (Dawn’s sis­ter) and Amy Ma­hood (Ryan’s cousin).

Lend­ing their sup­port as best man and grooms­man, re­spec­tively, were Ryan’s friends Ryan McMil­lan and Michael Cre­aney.

“Our wed­ding day was spec­tac­u­lar. The cer­e­mony was beau­ti­ful, espe­cially the singing of the hymns by all of our guests,” said Dawn.

Ur­ban Hair De­sign in Car­ri­ga­line took care of the bridal hairstyling and makeup. The mother-of-the-bride, Estelle, cre­ated the bou­quets and dec­o­rated the church.

“Other as­pects that made our day so spe­cial were the lo­ca­tion of our wed­ding (the scenic har­bour town of Kin­sale), our band White Satin (they had ev­ery­one danc­ing their socks off and their mu­sic catered to our guests of all ages), how seam­less the ser­vice of the ho­tel was and hav­ing so many fam­ily and friends who had trav­elled from far and near present to cel­e­brate our spe­cial day with us,” said Dawn. The bride and groom hon­ey­mooned in Bath and Bris­tol.

The new­ly­weds re­side in New­tow­nards, Co Down.
