Get the tissues ready! Watch the video from Dave & Declans special day....

Dave and Declan tied the knot at Finnstown Castle Hotel Dublin surrounded by 100 of their close friends and family last month, read their story below....

"We set the date before last May after being together for nine years and we were so hoping on a yes vote - the Irish people put their hearts out there with an outstanding yes vote for love that knows no boundaries or limits...."

"We were the first full same sex marriage at the venue. Both our mams walked us up the aisle and our ceremony was a spiritual ceremony performed by the amazing Miriam Fitzgerald. As we walked up to 'A Thousand Years' with saxophone sung by the lovely angel Breannan and we had a harp playing throughout the ceremony which tickled at people's Heart strings.

Our brothers did a ring warming ceremony passing the rings to our guests as they put well wishes and thoughts into them as Declan's sister Rosin and my other brother Owen lit candles for our grandparents.

Our Dads were our witnesses. We had a reception with bubbles and canapés with Angel singing the afternoon away. As people took there seats for there meal we were played in by the bagpipes and did our speeches before our meal which both brothers and dads getting plenty of laughs in. We had a magician to entertain the tables from desert before taking to the floor for our first dance. The Bottle Brothers band helped us dance the night away into the early hours.

It's a day we will cherish forever as love is love and knows no boundaries whether your 2 men or 2 woman it should be cherished when you find it and our journey together in life is just beginning...."

Congratulations Dave & Declan! Wishing you many happy years together x
