As travel agents, airlines and tour operators stepped up to the mark to keep travellers moving during Storm Emma, Stena Line also did its bit to save a bride’s big day.
Aine Kilgannon, fiancé Heath Bateman and 26 of their friends and family travelled by train from London to Holyhead on Friday, March 2, to discover that their Irish Ferries sailing to Dublin had been cancelled. Stena Line stepped in to provide the bridal party with travel from Holyhead to Dublin.The couple made it to the church on time – up in Roscommon – and Aine said: “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, the ferry company said.
