Bernie and Liam were engaged and a couple of days before the wedding Liam had cold feet and wanted to call it off. Bernie persuaded him that it would be fairer if she jilted him because she would be embarassed if he split with her so close to the wedding. She promised him that she would not show up to the church, leaving everyone to think that it had been her idea to call off the wedding.
On the day Liam showed up as promised and so did Bernie, he was so surprised to see her that he went ahead with the wedding.
Shortly after it turned out that the wedding had not been legal because they had not given three months notice, but the church wedding was recognised. They were going to have a second "official" marriiage but then just as Bernie found out that she was pregnant Liam headed off to travel with the sister of the photographer (can't rememember his or her name).
Liam did not know that Bernie was pregnant until he returned to Ros na Run many months later.
