Teenage Sweethearts: Sharon + John at The Brehon

Thank goodness they left the Child of Prague out!

The sun was surely shining down on this happy day. We just can’t get over the beauty of Sharon and John’s gorgeous July wedding. The teenage sweethearts first met a youth club disco before they said ‘I do’ 16 years later! John popped the question on New Year’s Eve and the pair set their date for July 2018 at the beautiful Brehon in Killarney. Joining The Brehon as Wedding Sales Manager in January of 2018, Sharon had the help of her talented colleagues every step of the way.

Surrounded by loving friends, family and the beauty of Kerry, Sharon and John could not have planned a more love-filled wedding day. Don’t miss all the sweet smiles and heartfelt moments from their special day captured by Nerijus Karmilcovas.

The Beginning

“Teenage sweethearts – we first met at a youth club disco in Ballybunion over 16 years ago.”

The Proposal

“Ringing in the New Year on New Year’s Eve of 2016 into 2017 in The Mermaids Bar in Listowel surrounded by our friends and family. We will cherish this memory forever.”

The Big Day

“It was a magical, emotional and heartfelt day from beginning to end. The sun shone brightly on the beaches of Ballybunion and on St John’s Church where family and friends gathered to celebrate the wedding ceremony of Sharon and John. The celebrations continued at The Brehon in Killarney, where guests enjoyed an idyllic arrival reception on the hotel’s lawn overlooking Killarney National Park before moving to the banqueting suite where the festivities continued with a delicious five-course meal followed by dancing late into the night.”

The Suppliers

“All of the suppliers on the day were outstanding! In particular Sharon’s place of work, The Brehon, where her colleagues lined the red carpet to welcome the newly married couple to the hotel.”

Special Touches

“The many close family members who helped and supported them in the preparations for the big day and John’s late mother Madeleine who was remembered throughout the day.”

Planning Advice 

“Relax, rejoice and embrace every single moment. Trust in your wedding suppliers to guide you on the day, your preparations are complete so its time to let the professionals take over. ?”
