Deirdre & Alan

Deirdre and Alan

THEY ARE home economics teacher Deirdre Kelleher and civil engineer Alan Moriarty

THEY LIVE in Mallow, Co Cork

THE PROPOSAL happened in Helsinki (where their love first blossomed), with a ring Deirdre had spotted two years earlier and Alan had been paying off ever since. Aw!!

THEIR WEDDING STYLE is minimal with a few quirky elements thrown into the mix. Both Dee and Alan love Proven?e, in France, so the romance of this place is a big inspiration, as are personal mementos, ‘several years ago, my grandmother painted me a picture of her 80th birthday card from Alan and I – it’s vintage teacups filled with flowers – we would love to incorporate this into our wedding invitations or mass booklets.?
