The couple wanted to tie the knot in a spiritualist ceremony at their venue, arranged through the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. This allowed them to create the ceremony that they wanted.
Along with their officiate John, the couple worked together to plan a ceremony that was incredibly meaningful to them. This was certainly pulled off and many of the guests commented on how personal they had made it.
Mary walked down the aisle to a slightly adjusted version of ‘Hallelujah’, which her brother in law rewrote so that the words were appropriate to Mary and Ryan!
One of the most memorable moments of the ceremony was when Ryan even made vows to Mary’s two sons. He presented them with medallions, to echo the exchanging of the wedding rings.
Mary felt so emotional when her eight year old looked up at Ryan with tears of joy in his eyes.
When it was time for the exchanging of the rings before the couple’s vows to each other, Ryan’s brother accidentally dropped one of the rings which clattered loudly in the quiet hall. It was a funny moment amidst the seriousness and everyone burst out laughing!
Mary and Ryan’s wedding rings were specially made from different parts of the world. Mary’s white gold and diamond ring was made in Amman, the capital of Jordan, whilst Ryan’s Celtic knot engraved band was made in America.
