Wedding Of Tipperary’s Shane Long To Kayleah Adams

long-weddingThe wedding of Ireland & West Brom soccer star Shane Patrick Long took place yesterday to former model Kayleah Adams. The ceremony took place at the beautiful Gothic style, 280 seater Church of St Mary in Enniskerry, latter formally part of the Powerscourt estate in County Wicklow.

Shane, from Gortnahoe, Thurles, Co Tipperary originally met his new bride when she was a teenager and he was playing for her home town of Reading, in Berkshire, England.

Hundreds of well-wishers gathered in the picturesque Wicklow village of Enniskerry, to cheer on & support both bride & groom on their special day.

Three bridesmaids were first to arrive, dressed in simple yet highly attractive knee length ivory dresses, together with two flower girls and one page boy.

The beautiful bride Kayleah arrived attired in a traditional A line styled, white lace, backless, figure-hugging ‘afternoon,’ wedding gown, while Shane looked dashing in a traditional morning suit, white shirt and cream tie.

The bride posed readily for photographs with her Dad and Bridesmaids, under a magnificent erected arch of white roses, prior to entering the church. Following the ceremony, the beaming couple emerged into brilliant sunshine, again posing for photographs, before travelling the short distance to the nearby lavish, 200 bed, five star Ritz-Carlton Powerscourt Hotel, (Ritz-Carlton won the Bronze Award for The Best Overseas Hotel in 2012.) where invited family and close friends, which included Kevin Doyle, Shephen Hunt and Paul McShane, were later entertained to dinner.

The West Brom & much loved Tipperary Soccer Star, together with new wife Kayleah, are expected to return from honeymoon shortly, to their present home in Sutton Coldfield.

From all here in Co Tipperary go our sincere best wishes to you both & your beautiful daughter Teigan.

(By the way the name Teigan is a female Anglicized form of the Irish male name Tadhg, taken from old Gaelic, Irish and meaning “Poet or Philosopher”.)
