Andrea and Eoin from Kerry met 10 years ago while they were both in college and their first date was spent climbing trees in Fitzgerald’s Park in Cork City. The adventurous pair have been exploring the world together since. In 2014, while road-tripping along the east coast of the USA and Canada, Eoin proposed to Andrea at Niagra Falls – taking her down a quiet lane with a view of Bridal Veil Falls.
Andrea and Eoin decided to create their own personal wedding ceremony, and where better to celebrate their nuptials than at Sundance Guest Ranch in Canada – where they were working at the time. Family and friends travelled from around the world to celebrate their magnificent day at Twin Pines mountain. Andrea rode up the aisle on her favourite horse Gunsmoke, to a stunning view of the Thompson River Valley, wearing a vintage cream silk gown from Dirty Fabulous in Dublin. And later on guests were treated to line dancing lessons.

Andrea and Eoin got crafty for the big day, with friends from the ranch helping out too. The pair created, among other things, candle stands, signs, ceremony booklets, wooden frames, the wedding arch and the cake. They also made a bracelet for Andrea, using hair from the manes of Cloud and Gunsmoke, the horses which the couple rode on their wedding day.
For their honeymoon of a lifetime, Andrea and Eoin bought a Jeep and travelled through Canada and USA for five months, working with huskies in Canada, learning to sail in Florida and partying in Mardi Gras along the way.
