Welcome

FROM CIARA & KARL

Thank you for taking the time to visit our Wedding Website.

We hope for it to be a convenient & fun way for our family and friends who are both near and far to stay up-to-date on all our wedding plans & details.

We appreciate that going to an abroad wedding takes much effort on your behalf so we endeavour to make your trip as enjoyable and as easily planned as possible.

We really hope you will be able to celebrate with us; but we completely understand if you are unable to attend. For those of you who are able to make it, we appreciate the time & effort you are taking to be with us and we look forward to seeing you in Portugal.

Love Cíara & Karl
