A turfcutter for wedding transport?

On Thursday night's episode of Don't Tell The Bride, a Tipperary groom wants to take his fiancee back to her roots with a bog themed wedding. Something his Offaly bride probably isn't too keen on.

And that’s not all groom Paddy Cooney (33) has up his sleeve… with the help of Best Man Ronan and Groomsman David, Paddy plans on transforming a country pub car park in Offaly into Shenanigans, the pub in Darwin where he and fiancee Breda Lambe (30) first met.

The hapless husband-to-be planned ceremony in a bog, a reception venue filled with snakes and kangaroos and he's arranged for Breda to arrive to the church in a turf cutter.

The couple met two years ago in a bar called Shenanigans in Darwin, Australia.

According to Paddy it was love at first sight but it wasn’t all plain sailing from then on as his visa was to expire the next day and he had to return home to Ireland.

The couple spent the next three weeks talking everyday on the phone and Paddy said he knew he had return to Australia to be with Breda. A few weeks later he returned and the couple were engaged after five months.

They have since relocated to Cashel in Tipperary where they live with their baby daughter Emily.

But will Breda be taking the next flight out to Darwin after seeing what Paddy has planned? Probably not but we imagine the reaction will still be priceless.

Don't Tell The Bride is on Thursdays at 9.35pm on RTÉ2
