A Surprise Celebration: Sian and Shane’s Unforgettable Wedding Day

Love has a magical way of surprising us when we least expect it, and that was certainly the case for the friends and family of Sian and Shane on their special day. What was thought to be a simple christening turned into a joyous union as the couple exchanged vows in a beautiful wedding ceremony that left everyone in awe.

The Preparations

The day began at Jackson’s hotel in the charming town of Ballybofey, Co Donegal.  Sian and Shane, the unsuspecting couple of the day, prepared for their big moment with the anticipation of a christening.

Sian’s  friend, Karen Magee, took charge of the bride’s transformation, creating an elegant look that perfectly complemented the joy radiating from within. Hair and makeup complete, the couple stole a quiet moment beside the picturesque River Finn for their first look—a tender exchange of glances and smiles that set the tone for the day ahead.

The Wedding Ceremony and Baptism

The main event took place in the historic St Mary’s Church in Stranorlar. Fr McAteer, a warm and welcoming officiant, presided over not only the marriage ceremony but also the christening. 

The Reception

The celebration continued at Jackson’s hotel, where the reception unfolded with laughter and fun. The venue’s elegant ambiance and impeccable service provided the perfect backdrop for the newlyweds to bask in the love and well-wishes of their friends and family.

The Evening Entertainment

The evening entertainment kicked off with the talented Jessica and Adam Hannigan. Their brilliant performances filled the air with music that resonated with the love shared between Sian and Shane.
