First ep of A Week To My Wedding
03 Sep 2015 10:10
Lovebirds Maeve O'Hara and Brendan Kenny are gearing up to their big day in the first episode of A Week To My Wedding which kicks-off on RTÉ One tonight.
-
This isn't the couple's first time in the spotlight, having appeared in an ad for Stella Artois last year, which saw Brendan surprise Maeve with an extremely romantic gift.
-
They first met in Galway in 2011 when Maeve was on a girl's night out and Brendan was on a stag. A mere six months after they first clapped eyes on one another, Maeve landed a job with the London Underground in London, and they had to make do with seeing one another at the weekends. However, in July 2013 Brendan secured a full time primary school teaching job in London, where the couple have been happily residing ever since.
-
There was never a doubt that they wouldn't come home to Ireland to get married, and Brendan had the advantage of having the summer holidays off school, so he travelled home early in the run-up to the wedding to make sure all plans were in hand.
-
His to-do list is long and varied - from printing mass booklets, to collecting ribbons and checking the cake. Maeve's journey back to Ireland is also an interesting one as she decided that she loves her wedding dress and antique brooch bouquet so much that she didn't want to fly with them. Instead, she opts for a 12 hour trek back by train, boat and car.
-
The couple's wedding ceremony is extra-special as Brendan's oldest friend, Fr Vincent Stapleton, who was recently ordained, is their second celebrant.
-
With the couple gearing up to say "I do" in front of their 225 guests, Maeve, a grade eight pianist, has a surprise up her sleeve for her husband-to-be.
-
It's shaping up to be a pretty special occasion - Watch A Week To My Wedding tonight at 8.30pm on RTÉ One
