Killarney beauty Caoimhe Cronin met her Killorglin native husband, Luke O’Shea when the pair were at secondary school. Their young love grew with them and in summer of 2017, Luke decided to ask his childhood sweetheart to be his wife.
“We went to Galway for a night. Luke had spoken to my Dad that morning and told him about the proposal. He had organised a meal at a lovely restaurant. A bottle of Champagne and a card were delivered to the table. As I read the card, he got down on one knee and popped the question. Luke had picked the ring and all! It was a lovely evening and once we got home, we celebrated with our family and friends”, the bride recalls.
Once the celebrations were had the pair set to choosing a date and settled on October 26, 2018 for their wedding day, with a special ceremony at Muckross Church followed by a luxurious reception at Muckross Park Hotel and Spa.

“Seeing each other in the church for the first time. It’s a strange feeling when you see each other every day but it was a very special moment. Still get butterflies thinking about it. For us both the wedding ceremony was very special and meaningful. The church music by Lukes Uncle Finbarr Coffey and Jack Patrick Healy was absolutely amazing”, Caoimhe shared.
“As we got married the October Bank Holiday Weekend, we had a Halloween/Boho theme. I was lucky to have my Aunt Kate assisted by my family to help in this area. They made the place so special. The atrium in Muckross was decorated in Halloween theme with cob webs, bats candles,pumpkins and as you moved into the dining room the vibe became more romantic with a boho theme. It truly was beautiful. The hours that were put in by all was unbelievable and myself and Luke were so grateful for all the help.”, the creative bride shared.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH MUCKROSS PARK HOTEL & SPA?
“Muckross Park was an exceptional venue. They were so helpful on the lead up to the day. They were always on hand to answer any questions for us and if we needed any advice. The staff made the day run perfectly and we could not thank them enough. The food was absolutely amazing you could not fault the hotel in any way. I could not recommend it enough we definitely got the five star experience. We also held our afters on the second night and I cannot say enough how fantastic the spread of food was. Our families and friends thoroughly enjoyed it.”
