Wedding of the Week: A romance written in the sand

Romance was written in the sand rather than the stars for Debra Hartigan and Trevor Murphy.

“Rachel Murphy was our wedding coordinator and she was an absolute dream to work with, as was the food and beverage manager Stephen,” said Debra.

Tara Donoghue Photography and Vivid Eye Videography captured the big day on camera.

The bride's mum and dad Catherine and Frank Hartigan and the groom's parents Veron and Michael Murphy helped them plan the big day, as did maid of honour Muireann Quinn (Debra's best friend) and bridesmaids Kanitta Latham (a friend) and Lynsey O’Sullivan (Debra's cousin).

The groom's cousin Billy Murphy was his best man while his brothers Jason Murphy and Damian Murphy were groomsmen.

“Our wedding was amazing from start to finish,” said Debra.

“Trevor and I bought a house together in September 2017 and were blessed with our son Harry in January 2019 so since we started planning our wedding we’ve looked at it as a celebration of what we already have not the start of something new so I think because of that we knew we’d enjoy the day being surrounded by friends and family so we just relaxed and didn’t sweat the small stuff.”

Debra looked stunning in a gown bought in Sharon Gregory Design Studio in Mallow. “I can’t praise Sharon enough,” said Debra.

Makeup artist Niamh Murphy and Audrey Cashman of Upstyle Junkie were also on hand while the groom and his party were dapper thanks to Formally Yours, Killarney.

After the celebrations, the newlyweds holidayed in Lanzarote for four days.

They will reside in Dromagh
