Don't tell the bride ... but her dress comes with fairy lights
A LIT-UP wedding dress may not have been what she dreamed of, but judge's daughter Clodagh Haughton certainly got her knight in shining armour.
Clodagh (25) agreed to walk up the aisle with very little knowledge of her own wedding day.
The Wicklow doctor had already bought a wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses when she found out that her romantic beau Daryl Corrigan (27) was planning a surprise with BBC's Don't Tell The Bride. But the brave bride said yes to her boyfriend's plans, which included a dress complete with fairy lights and a reception in a badminton hall.
Beauty therapist Catherina McAllister was called in at the last minute and said that the blushing bride was panicking as more details were revealed on the day of her nuptials.
She said: "She was very anxious. She wasn't very happy about the dress. The dress did look nice, apart from the lights. She did look very beautiful in the end."
The couple tied the knot at Ballinatoe Church following by reception in Kirekee Hall, Glenmalure.
Clodagh said that the most difficult part of the whole process was not being able to see her fiance for three weeks.
"I genuinely wasn't bothered about anything else, I knew he'd do a great job," she said.
Joiner Daryl said that it was one of the most stressful experiences of his life.
"I'm married to her now, so I must have done something right."
