Saturday 7th September 2013
So, after many years of trekking up and down the country, countless miles clocked on planes, trains and automobiles, as well as stints for Kieran in Warrenpoint and Katharine in Cork, we have finally decided to tie the knot!
We have always wanted to celebrate our wedding abroad (preferably in the sunshine!) and, after much deliberation, we have decided to get married in Nerja, Spain.
Some of the most defining moments in our relationship have been in the company of family and good friends – from when we first met in Toronto, Canada in 2005, to our engagement in Turkey in 2011 – so we can’t think of a better way to celebrate our wedding than surrounded by our nearest and dearest.
We realise that for some it might be difficult to travel abroad but, if at all possible, we would love nothing more than for you to join us in celebrating our special day. ”We, and most of our family members, will be arriving in Nerja three days before the wedding on Wednesday 4th September and staying for a week – you are welcome to join us at any time during our stay.
This website will let you know all that we have planned for our wedding celebrations and all other vital information to make your stay with us as enjoyable’ and hassle free as possible!’ Here you will find details on travel, accommodation options, pre and post wedding get-togethers and, most importantly, information on the day itself!” We think everything should be covered here but should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either of us.
Please keep a close eye on this website as we’ll continue to update it between now and the wedding.
Thanks and we hope to see you all on 7th September 2013!
Katharine & Kieran
