JMJ Love Stories: Siofra and Gerard's Twinkling Engagement

JMJ Love Stories: Siofra & Gerard

A surprise Christmas proposal for Siofra, surrounded by over a million twinkling lights, colourful trees and magical illuminated illustrations at Hillsborough Castle and Gardens.

Here we talk to Siofra as she shares her #JMJLOVESTORY with us…

Firstly, we must ask, how did you and Gerard meet?

“I first met Gerard on a Saturday night in the canal court 9 years ago! We had mutual friends but had somehow never met before then!”

We’re all dying to know; how did your now fiancé propose? 

“I had booked for us to go to Hillsborough Castle for the Christmas lights trail. I love a good photo and couldn’t resist getting a picture of us both under the Arch which was the main attraction. Gerard asked a stranger to take our photo, and on his way back from asking her, he stopped and got down on one knee… I was speechless!” 

Tell us about your ring… 

“For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted a round cut sapphire with a diamond halo on a white gold band! Gerard made an appointment with Jack Murphy Jewellers and picked a round cut sapphire surrounded by a diamond halo on a platinum band and it is perfect. I love it and everyone comments on how beautiful it is."

How are you enjoying wedding planning so far, and do you have any exciting plans for the big day?

“At the minute we’re just enjoying the engagement bubble and trying to decide on a venue! But we are enjoying every minute!”
