Meath farming natives, Sive Corrigan and Stephen Mulligan, had just exchanged their marital vows on Saturday, September 2nd, 2021, in St Brigid’s Church, Boardsmill, Co Meath.
The beaming couple walked in traditional Irish style down the aisle to meet their wedding guests outside the countryside chapel.
However, unbeknownst to the bride was her “real lifetime love and a dream come true” waiting outside for her.
Patiently waiting for her were two pedigree Highland cows bred from Quantock Fold in the UK thanks to the dedicated background help of Highland breeders, Michelle Shaughnessy Co Longford, and Diarmuid Conway Co Westmeath.
Setting eyes on them, Sive broke down in tears declaring her “undying” love for them.
Not only did she abandon her wedding guests to embrace them, but Sive also abandoned her bewildered new husband, Stephen, as she flung her arms around the two Highlands declaring her utter joy and love to them.
The parish priest got in on the fun, as did all the thrilled guests delighted to experience and enjoy this jovial reaction on the absolute Happiest Day of Sive’s life.
Congratulations to the happy ‘dairy’ farming couple from us all!
