Love was in the air for Ea­mon and Mario on their spe­cial day

THEIR paths first crossed in Lon­don when Mario Failla and Ea­mon Mur­phy em­barked on their first day of train­ing as cabin crew with Bri­tish Air­ways. That was April 15, 1996, and ex­actly two decades later, on April 15, 2016, the cou­ple an­nounced their en­gage­ment in Kin­sale, cel­e­brat­ing in the Su­per Club restau­rant.

Lon­don-based Mario and Ea­mon re­turned to Kin­sale to tie the knot in a hu­man­ist cer­e­mony in the gun­pow­der room at Charles Fort, led by Norma McEl­lig­ott.

Mario, an Ital­ian who was born in Ar­gentina, and Ea­mon, an Ir­ish­man who was born in Eng­land, wel­comed guests from across the world in­clud­ing Ire­land, Aus­tralia, Ar­gentina, and Si­cily.

Their wed­ding day rev­elry started with a cham­pagne and canapé re­cep­tion in Ac­tons Ho­tel where a harpist per­formed and guests were then fer­ried by coaches to Charles Fort.

A pro­ces­sion of the wed­ding party was led by lo­cal mu­si­cian Pat Crow­ley play­ing ‘Adios Nonino’ on the accordion rep­re­sent­ing Mario’s Ar­gen­tinian back­ground.

Both cut a dap­per dash for the nup­tials, with Ea­mon sport­ing Dolce & Gab­bana, from Bond St, Lon­don, while Mario wore made-tomea­sure Ermenegildo Zegna, Knights­bridge, Lon­don.

Mario’s best man was Salvo Moschetto while Ea­mon’s best woman was Holly Solorz.

At their re­cep­tion, in Ac­tons Ho­tel, en­ter­tain­ment in­cluded tango dancers from Ar­gentina and a troupe of young Ir­ish dancers from a lo­cal dance school in Cork fol­lowed by a disco till the early hours.

Cel­e­bra­tions con­tin­ued the fol­low­ing day at an Easter Sun­day buf­fet lunch with an Ir­ish band play­ing for the 150 guests. Ma­gi­cian Ger­ard Kear­ney en­ter­tained all ages and daz­zled Mario and Ea­mon with a per­son­alised trick per­formed es­pe­cially for them.

Cap­tur­ing the big day on cam­era were pho­tog­ra­pher and videog­ra­pher Bartek Wachta and Karol Kach­marsky.

The new­ly­weds hon­ey­mooned in Los An­ge­les.
