Stena Line save the day for stranded Irish bride

Leading ferry company Stena Line has proved to be a marriage made in heaven for bride Aine Kilgannon who was married in Knock, Co. Mayo on Saturday afternoon.

Aine, her fiancé Heath Bateman and 26 of their friends and family travelled by train from London to Holyhead on Friday 2 March only to discover that their Irish Ferries sailing to Dublin had been cancelled.

Luckily, Stena Line stepped in to provide the bridal party with travel from Holyhead to Dublin and ensure that the blushing bride wouldn’t miss her big day!

Aine said of her experience:

“Words can’t express the gratitude we have for Stena Line! When we discovered that our Irish Ferries crossing had been cancelled I was completely panic stricken and extremely worried that after all our planning and excitement our big day might not happen at all, but thankfully Stena Line was on hand to make sure I made it across the Irish Sea to my wedding day.”

The bride, groom and their friends were given cabins and treated to refreshments onboard ensuring that they would arrive at their destination, refreshed, stress free and ready for what was sure to have been the best day of their lives.
