Clare natives Tara O Donoghue and Stephen Griffin tied the knot on July 12, 2019 with a heartfelt ceremony in St. Michaels church Kildysart, Co. Clare followed by an elegant reception in the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa. 

The pairs love story is one which has been in the making for many years, having met in the summer of 2007 through mutual friends. A decade later and two children (Amelia and Gavin), Stephen proposed to Tara on May 20, 2017, the same day as their daughter’s first birthday. Stephen, ‘got down on one knee, told me why he loved me and wanted to complete our family by getting married. I might have cried a little.’ Tara fondly recalls. 

Tara wore an ivory satin A line dress with pearl embellishment on the straps and bust area. It had a half-open back, also with embellishment, and she finished off the look with a French tulle veil in ivory in cathedral length.  

 Bridesmaidand recently crowned Munster Hairdresser of the Year, Linda of Hi Maintenance Hair did the hair on the day so the girls were in safe hands 

 Their favourite moment of the entire day; when our son introduced us into our reception and his words… can I introduce to you finally Mr and Mrs Griffin.” And all of these special moments were captured by Mike Kelly on video.  

 The pair have since enjoyed a perfect honeymoon spending three nights in New York followed by seven nights in Cancun.
