In keeping with the spirit of Valentine's Day, the Cork Weddings Magazine team recently caught up with the lovely Mary from Cork aesthetic clinic - Celeste Medical, to discuss her recent engagement to fiance Scott and to see how those wedding plans are coming along!
Congratulations on your engagement Mary. It's all very exciting! Tell us, how did you and Scott meet?
"We met sixteen years ago when we were fourteen years old. We were childhood friends for years. We started to date over three years ago now. We always kept in contact."
How did Scott propose?
"Our engagement happened at Lough Hyne. We went for a walk to take in the views and he proposed at the top of the hill walk, overlooking the beautiful lake Lough Hyne.
Scott had booked a romantic night away in Cottages for Couples in Skibbereen. We went back there to celebrate with Champagne. It was a night away that he booked to celebrate my 30th birthday, so it was double celebrations for us."
Tell us about the ring?
"My ring is a round cut solitaire that we bought in Keanes jewellers Cork. We picked the ring out together. I love it so much. It’s absolutely perfect."
Are you looking forward to the wedding celebrations?
"We can’t wait! We are both very excited. The wedding plans are now in full swing! We’ve booked our band, and photographer, all the main things are done. We are currently getting the smaller jobs organized.
I’ve bought my dress in The Wedding Club London. I love it! It’s my dream dress. I’m having 5 bridesmaids, my sister and my 4 best friends. We are all so excited for the morning of the wedding. Lots of girly fun to be had."
Where are you having your wedding?
"Our wedding is in Kilshane House, Bansha Tippearary. It’s a very elegant house with old vibes, 320 acres of private parkland and gorgeous greenery. It has a beautiful conservatory which is where our Prosecco reception will be held. We both love this room. It has a hidden aviary in the glasshouse."
Where are you going on your Honeymoon?
"We are off to Las Vegas and Hawaii. We want beaches, good food, luxury hotels, and a lot of relaxing."
Enjoy it, guys! From all the Cork Weddings Magazine team x
