Social worker Triona Ni Adhaister and Limerick native Jason Moore believe their meeting was an act of fate. “Triona was stopped on the dual carriage way as she had got a puncture. I stopped to help her change the wheel and we were talking away, and Triona tried to offer me money for helping her. Me being the cheeky chap I am suggested she buy me a coffee instead,” Jason reveals and from there a love blossomed. Following a Christmas time proposal in the couple’s home in 2013, Jason and Triona chose September 15, 2018 as their wedding date with a ceremony in Monaleen Church followed by a reception in The Killaloe Hotel.

Jason recalls the first look as his favourite moment of their special day. “I had arranged to have the library room in the hotel covered in tea lights. I waited anxiously for Triona to arrive and when she did, she took by breath away. She blew my mind with how beautiful she looked. I will never forget that moment, it will stay in my heart forever,” Jason recalls fondly.
On their first ever date,Triona and Jason went to see the Twilight movies which featured Christina Perri’s ‘A Thousand Years’ on the soundtrack. “Because of this, the song featured in the proposal. Five years later, it was the song to which Triona walked down the aisle and our first dance song,” Jason shared. Jason also thanks Zoe and Zach, his two children from a previous relationship, for their help and support throughout planning the big day.
Jason contacted Brides of Limerick as a surprise for his beloved wife. “From the moment we announced our engagement, without fail there was a copy of the Brides of Limerick magazine on our kitchen table. She loves it. She has every issue bought and was always cutting out pages of what she wanted and what suppliers to get them from. I just want to see my wife’s face when she sees herself in the magazine, it will be an amazing surprise. I want to thank Triona for everything she has done. I haven’t stopped smiling and laughing since the day I met her,” Jason says.
How was your experience with The Killaloe Hotel?
“It was Catherine the owner, who herself took charge of covering the entire first look space in tea lights. That night, Catherine was up fixing fairy lights in the pagoda so that we could also take pictures again. We can’t thank her enough for everything she did on the day of our wedding. The food was faultless, every one of our guests said they loved it. Catherine had informed us beforehand that she doesn’t go around giving extras after serving the meals, that her portions are plentiful and they were, from the starters right through the mains everything was absolutely perfect. Guests who stayed over also had commented on the grounds of the hotel, that the location was amazing and picture perfect.”
