Irish Dance Stars Tie the Knot!


Irish weddings are known to be epic celebrations and the marriage of Alan Scariff and Cheryl Nolan was no exception with lots of celebrating and dancing. So, how did the newlyweds meet? 

The duo knew each other through the dance circuit as both had danced for the famous Irish Dancing Show, Riverdance.

Now retired from Riverdance, both run successful dance schools and are Irish Dancing adjudicators. Let's just say, Irish Dancing is their life! 

Although the two never toured together, Irish Dancing ultimately brought them together. The two reconnected at feis in Manchester in January 2018 where they were judging.

By Christmas of 2018 they were engaged and on the 30th August they tied the knot and made it official as husband and wife.  In the Irish Dancing world, this is a match made in heaven!

All couples hope their wedding reception is memorable and fun for guests. But, unlike most couples, Alan and Cheryl’s friend list includes many former World champions and show stars!

As you can imagine, the wedding was incredibly fun with a lot of dancing, but a highlight was when a cast of nearly 30 former dancers from the Riverdance cast got up for old time sake and danced a famous number from the show.........

With Alan starring in the number, he danced for his lovely bride Cheryl who was seated with a prime view of the dance floor. Sadly, Cheryl was unable to participate in the Riverdance number due to a foot injury she sustained in a horrific car accident two years prior.

In true Irish Dance fashion the former Riverdance cast members took to the floor, bringing back memories from their time on stage!

Cheryl was delighted to see her groom, Alan, and so many of their friends perform a classic number from the show. This wedding appears to have been great "craic" as the Irish say....Check it out!
