The first time Edel and Barry properly met was in fact at a funeral! Barry asked Edel if she would go out with him the next week. After a week passed the couple went on their first date and haven’t looked back since. It was two years later that Barry decided to propose to Edel – when they were on their way out; Barry insisted the couple stop at his house so he could pick up a few things, as he and Edel entered the hallway he proposed. The couple then spent 20 months planning the perfect day.
