A FESTIVE pub crawl through Cork city proved the meeting point for these newlyweds.
Theresa O’Sullivan, of Little Island, and Joseph Kelliher, from, Dingle first crossed paths in the Washington Inn in Cork city.
Therese explained how they first met: “I was on the 12 pubs and Joseph was on a night out and we met in pub number 12.”
The duo, aged 32, were born within just two days of each other.
“We got engaged on June 15, 2017, the day before my 30th birthday, in our favourite restaurant in Dingle called Doyles.
“We started planning straight away. We decided to get married in my parish church, Sacred Heart Church in Glounthaune, on November 30, 2019.”
Family friends Fr Tom Hayes and Fr Liam O Hici married them.
Theresa was on Say Yes To The Dress with fellow Corkonian Franc, who helped her find her perfect dress.
“It was a full length dress (in Vows, Blarney) with a bit of lace and sparkle, it was a fantastic experience.”
Her veil and the bridesmaid dresses all came from Vows. Jewellery was from Michel.
Hair was by the talented Laura Chambers, from Heavenly Hair in Glounthaune. Make-up was by Ruthanna Crowley. The suits came from Strand House in Dingle, as did the shoes.
The bridal party included Theresa’s sister and maid of honour, Niamh O’Sullivan, best friend Sarah Murphy and Joseph’s sister Joanne O’Halloran.
Best man was Patrick Fitzgerald, and groomsmen were Eoghan O’Connor and brother-in-law Barry O Halloran.
Parents James and Eileen O’Sullivan and Patrick and Mary Kelliher supported the couple hugely in the run up to their day.
Joe from Wedding Vintage Car Hire drove the couple to their reception at the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa in Little Island. The couple said Joanne O’Donoghue, the wedding coordinator, was a fantastic help.
“The hotel was done up beauitfully, it was so nice to have Ditchley House for our drinks reception and into the main hotel for our meal. The food was exceptional, we couldn’t fault anything. Everyone loved everything about the Radisson.”
