Nowadays, with marriage proposals consisting of full musical production numbers going viral on the internet, there can be an added pressure on people planning to pop the question. Not only do they have to worry that their one true love will actually say ‘yes’ but there’ s a weight of expectation of some huge romantic gesture to go along with it. Peter Dunne heard from three people who battled injuries, an audience of thousands and no proposal at all (!) to bag the one they love. Photos provided by the happy couples.

Cork native Siobhan met wife-to-be Lindsey three years ago when she travelled down from Belfast to attend the LINC Rebellion Masquerade Ball. “We hit it off immediately”, said Siobhan, “we have a lot in common and are also poles apart in other senses! We share a mutual love of music and that was the overriding memory for me of the first few weeks of courtship - swapping tunes and texting every day.”

Siobhan & Lindsey

Even though Lindsey returned to Belfast, the pair were so smitten no distance was going to separate them. “The thing about long distance is that you have to plan every available weekend so far in advance.”

Remember them being big music fans? It was no surprise how they spent those weekends. “We have gone to lots of gigs together - North and South of the border - in the past three years.”

About GCN

Welcome to our ninth annual Wedding Issue! In this issue, we look at the full spectrum of marriage, from proposals, to the ceremony and beyond. Four couples let us in on their wedding journey and all the planning and dreaming that goes into creating the perfect day, while long-term married pairings give the lowdown on how to keep a relationship strong. For those not into all this wedding malarkey, there’s a couple perfectly happy not to walk down the aisle. On the culture side, we have a pair of interviews with two wonderful musical acts - the iconic Indigo Girls and the thrilling Cub Sport. We discuss the cold facts that families of same-sex parents aren’t as equal as their straight counterparts, and that our family in the North still battle for the right to love. Our cover image is by the artist Joe Caslin. He speaks inside about art as activism and the power of solidarity, something that our whole community can very much agree with. The North Is Next.
