We are delighted to share the gorgeous sunny outdoor Summer wedding of Nicola & Dave with you. Nicola & Dave originally met 12 years ago at their local. They remained friends for years but eventually started dating towards the end of 2014.
Dave proposed to Nicola in the gorgeous Gougane Barra on the 29th December 2020. To Nicola's surprise the entire proposal was recorded by drone as he got down on one knee - how romantic is that!
Nicola told us they would describe their wedding day 'as the most amazing day filled with love, laughter and sunshine. The highlights for us were Ann and her amazing attention to detail, the friendly and welcoming staff, the O'Neill family, the beautiful function room, the VIP travel experience with Michael Snr in the golf cart, the food and the warm atmosphere.'
A very important part of the day was when Nicola's Godson Ollie walked her down the aisle!
Nicola & Dave told us their priorities 'were that we were able to have the ceremony and reception in one place. We wanted our wedding to be intimate and accessible for all as we had our young nephews there. They made themselves right at home and were exploring the beautiful gardens throughout the day. It was also very important to us that people were happy with the food at our wedding and they still talk about how delicious and fresh the food was'.
When asked what made Fernhill ''the one'' for Nicola & Dave they told us, 'we provisionally booked Fernhill during Covid restrictions so we were unable to view the hotel itself at the time. We had heard and read so many positive reviews about Fernhill that we knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us, even though we had never been there. I think this says a lot about Fernhill. We met Ann once the restrictions were lifted and instantly got a feeling that our day was going to be special.'
'Our advice for future couples would be that you are in the best hands with Ann and all the staff at Fernhill. You don't need to stress about your day as they think of everything - down to the smallest of details!'
'We went to Parknasilla a few days after the wedding. We are due a baby girls in Spring 2023 so hope to get away for a real honeymoon as a family of 3 next Summer.' - Doesn't this sound lovely!
Nicola & Dave it was our pleasure to host your special day and we wish you two (nearly three!) every happiness for the future.
