A Love Story By The Sea – Tinakilly House wedding

A love story blossomed next to the sea, with Alice and Dave as the main leads. Their affair started off as nothing spectacular, as they were introduced to each other by a pair of siblings, who were their mutual friends. However, a decade down the line, they are now deeply in love with each other, with no plans to look away, anytime soon. As all the great love stories go, the romance of Alice and Dave withstood the test of time, culminating in a fruitful, blossoming tale of love, something to narrate to their grandchildren, years down the line.


The Proposal

After dating each other for a fairly long time, Alice and Dave decided to go on a holiday to Kerry. One day, Alice states, when the couple was walking on the beach, Dave ‘disappeared’ into the bushes, and emerged with a picnic basket. At the time, Alice assumed that the basket meant that they were to have a picnic by the beach. However, Dave pulled out a huge fake ring from the basket, and proposed to Alice, who immediately said yes. A week later, they bought a real ring from Antwerp. Since that day, neither the couple has looked back, nor has their love.

The Wedding Location

For the couple, choosing a wedding location was not difficult, as they both lived near the location, and were always in love with it. Tinakilly House is a short, forty minute drive from the Dublin. A restored county manor, Tinakilly House is a four star hotel dotted on both sides by a resplendence of Oak trees, overlooking the beautiful and picturesque Irish Sea.

The Wedding Day

For Alice and Dave, their wedding day was nothing short of magical, a fairy tale ripped right from the books. Everything was perfect, and went on like a dream. For Alice, one of the best moments was when she saw Dave at the altar for the first time. At that moment, everything seemed real to her, that yes, she was getting married to the man of her dreams, the love of her life.
