The marriage ceremony took place in the Church of St. John the Baptist, Clonoulty, Thurles, Co.Tipperary, with the ceremony jointly conducted by Rev. Fr. James O’Donnell and Rev. Fr. Joseph Walshe, both close friends of the Bride and Groom.

Escorted down the aisle by her father Edward, the bride looked stunningly beautiful wearing an off the shoulder bespoke lace afternoon wedding gown, highlighted by an accompanying delicate all lace jacket and full length train. Equally beautiful were her two accompanying bridesmaids, her sister Miss Anne Marie Lyng and her close friend Miss Angela O’Dwyer, who both wore full-length, “Sophia Tolli,” teal coloured (deep bluish green) evening gowns with cross pleated bodices.  Also adding to the splendour of this occasion were Flower Girls, Caoimhe and Moira Ryan, Clíodhna Maxwell and Pageboys Tadhg and Diarmuid Ryan.

The Groom Laurence, together with his best man, Séamus Farrell and groomsman, Shane Tynan, all looked dashing in dark evening suits, elegantly highlighted by white Oxford Plain shirts with cream waistcoats and white and teal matching coloured silk cravats.

The couple proclaimed their devout love for each other in front of a large gathering of over 230 family members and close friends, with music provided for the ceremony by Pianist Miss Fiona O’Connor and vocals by former County Tipperary International Rose of Tralee contestant, Miss Noirin Ryan and her sister Miss Aoife Ryan.

Scripture readings were undertaken by Mr Thomas Lyng twin brother of the bride and Mrs Mairead Maxwell sister of the groom, while prayers of the faithful were read by Angela Buckley, Kaye Duffy, Derek Ryan, Kate Maher, Seamus Ryan and Niamh Ahern. The Offertory Procession of bread & wine was carried to the alter by Mrs Helen Lyng and Mrs Margaret Buckley, latter mothers of the newly married couple.
