JMJ Love Stories: The best birthday present anyone could wish for; Olivia said YES!

JMJ Love Stories: Olivia Rooney and Daryl McShane

The best birthday present anyone could wish for; Olivia said YES!

 Let’s talk to the beautiful and newly engaged Olivia about her #JMJLoveStory…

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

“We met over eight years ago! We worked together in the Lough & Quay in Warrenpoint and became really good friends… About a year later, we started dating and have been inseparable since.”

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

“We got engaged on 24th of July this year… on Daryl's birthday actually! We were just chilling out at home with our three cats Alfie, Elton and Max – enjoying a cup of tea and our favourite treats from the Corn Dolly. The next thing, Daryl appeared with a bunch of sunflowers and a vintage promise ring asking for one more birthday present!”

Tell us about your ring…

“I really had very little idea of what ring I would like but I knew exactly where to go to find the right one. We excitedly booked an appointment in the beautiful Jack Murphy Jewellers showroom. The lovely Emma brought us many rings to try on. There were so many stunning rings but we went for a cushioned diamond with a white gold band. Emma was excellent and very quickly knew what style suited me. A ring neither of us possibly would have picked without Emma's expert eye - we are so glad to have had her help because it is the perfect ring for me.”

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

“At the minute we are in the process of deciding on a venue and date. Other than that, Pinterest has been on the go nearly every day for some fun ideas and inspiration.”
