Niamh and Patrick's intimate wedding: Sneak Peek of their special day

How the couple got engaged?

We got engaged in London on our 5th anniversary (Feb 25th). Patrick had everything organised and I didn't have a clue. When we got to the room on the bed were two swans made from towels with rose petals all over the room. It was funny, this happened before in Thailand because they thought it was our honeymoon. Patrick handed me this box and when I opened it there was a card with loads of drawings on it. Patrick got someone to draw out all our key timelines and funny moments as a couple. He showed the artist a load of photos and she replicated them. It started when we began dating and as we went along the timeline there was a drawing of Patrick asking my Dad if he could marry me, there was a drawing of Marble Arch and a drawing of a ring. When I looked down Patrick was on one knee with the ring on show in the box - I'll bring the engagement card on the day for photos.
