Jessica & Cavan's Real Wedding

A wedding co-ordinator at Kinnitty Castle by day, Cavan knew that whenever he got married he wanted to do something different from everything else. Subsequently, this groom and his fitness instructor fiancée Jessica based their wedding day around the theme of “quality not quantity”. After taking their vows during an intimate church wedding ceremony, the couple joined family and friends for a celebratory sit down meal and reception at a heavenly hotel and spa resort.

Cavan & Jessica-The Happy Couple

Jessica and Cavan met while at work five years ago. The pair became inseparable and moved in together two years later. One dark and wet night, while his lady was out, Cavan lit the fire and scattered their front room with tealight candles. As Jess walked through the front door from a tiring evening at work, the man of her dreams greeted her on one knee, presenting his future fiancé with a beautiful ring and taking Jess completely by surprise.

Chosen by Cavan, Jess’ ring was an unusual eighteen carat white gold band complete with square cut diamonds set into the band and a main stone of diamonds. The undoubtedly beautiful ring went down a treat, but Cavan’s top tip to future grooms would be “to take into consideration the type of wedding band you would like to get- as stunning as this engagement ring was, it was extremely difficult to get a band to sit right with it.”
