WATCH: The emotional moment 'First Dates' couple get engaged
Dubliner Shannon Whelan (21) and Monaghan farmer Ciara Smyth (22) instantly clicked when they first met on the popular RTE dating show in 2017. But neither of them ever dreamed that their brief encounter would end up with them walking down the aisle. And just like their first date, the moment of their proposal was also captured on camera. In a video posted by Coco TV, Shannon is seen getting down on one knee in front of a large crowd at her 21st birthday party and popped the big question. Thankfully, an emotional Ciara accepted straight away, with the classic hit ‘Maniac 2000’ blaring out as they embraced.
