We love Don’t Tell The Bride here at HagParty.ie :) so we were only delighted when we heard our favourite wedding programme is due to feature the first ever same sex marriage episode….AND it’s 1916 themed.


The grooms are Mark White and his partner Kerwin Villabolos who met four years ago in The Dragon Bar on George’s Street.

They celebrated their civil partnership in 2014 are now looking to tie the knot with the help of the hit TV show.

“Civil partnership was amazing,” said Mark

“It made us a unit but I think marriage offers so much more.”

Kerwin added: “This is the real thing, we are as one.”

Mark & Kerwin have very different tastes when is comes to their ideal wedding! Mark wants a 1916 themed wedding while Kerwin wants a “White, Modern, Sleek & Classy” affair!
