An Engagement With Franc is a four-part series featuring Franc,
aka Peter Kelly, Ireland’s
premier wedding and events designer. For An Engagement
With Franc, he has
been asked to bring some magic to the engagement proposals of four Northern
Ireland hopefuls and make that Other Special Day one to remember.
Franc’s events are defined by his unique sense of occasion. As a designer, his role is to ensure each event is tailor-made to the individual, reflecting their personalities, styles and tastes. Through Brides Of Franc, the very successful television series on RTE, audiences have been treated to a diverse range of stunning weddings, some of which were organised against the most incredible odds.
In a novel departure for Franc, one of the few men in the business, this new series sees him design locations and coordinate performers to create a unique setting for the dream proposal...and all of this without letting one half of the couple know what’s going on!
Locations for the proposals range from Paris to the Giant’s Causeway,
from a Norwegian mountaintop to live onstage at Oxegen, in front of
tens of thousands of music lovers at one of Ireland’s largest

girlfriend Vicki. Here, Franc is hoping to make an unforgettable day
for them both, incorporating a 30-strong pipe band, her family and
