Noleen & Jason

The lovely Wedding took place recently of Miss Noleen Owens from Sixmilecross & Mrs Jason Conway from Greencastle in the Greenvale Hotel, Cookstown.

The Bride’s dress was stunning and her bridesmaid dresses were just gorgeous! I loved the colour of the dresses with the lace back detail. Stephen Mallon decorated the Greenvale and it was looking fantastic. Unfortunately the rain took over and the boys got a few photos taken inside before the radiant Bride & her Dad arrived. The Registrar conducted a lovely ceremony and soon the new Mr & Mrs Conway headed for Killymoon Castle in Cookstown for their Photo-shoot. Again not too many Photos were outside but that didn’t stop this couple from relaxing and enjoying themselves! We headed back over to The Greenvale for the meal and as usual Mickey Mc Elhatton had everything set up and ready to go! After the Meal Hype The Band provided the entertainment and the floor was full for the entire night!

Congratulations to you both!

Danielle & Ciaran

The wonderful Wedding of Danielle & Ciaran took place back in July. The Bride wore the most exquisite dress with the Bridesmaids in a beautiful pale green. I loved the Mother of the Bride’s outfit, which matched perfectly with the Bridesmaids.   The Groom’s Niece Cliodna was the Flowergirl and she was so pretty in her wee dress! Catherine Flemming was the Make-up artist on the day and as usual everyone was looking FAB!

The boys arrived in their navy suits and brown shoes looking very dapper indeed. Janice Watt from the Flower Studio in Dungannon provided the Flowers and the bouquets were quite simply amazing!

Hype The Band had every guest up and on the floor so the place was just buzzing with excitement!


 Thanks so much for having us at your Special Day!

Noeleen & Conor

Noeleen’s House was full on the morning of the Wedding with Bridesmaids, Kids, hairdresser, Mum & of course the Bride. The laughs coming from that Kitchen were plentiful! Noeleen & Conor’s wee man Ryan was the Boss that morning. He had us all (including Paul) wrapped round his little finger! He was just full of devilment!!  Noeleen’s dress was lovely with all the lace around the bodice and the detail around the waist, it suited her perfectly!   The Bridesmaids wore a very dark green shade and it had the most gorgeous detail around the top. The bridesmaid’s all had fabulous shoes except for one!! You know there’s always one who gives trouble…Well it was Stephanie, the Brides Sister! I’m only joking!! Stephanie was brilliant, she kept the craic going the whole day and as for having to wear flat shoes, well at least you were comfortable..LOL. Nuala Mc Bride made all the bouquets and they were stunning!

Conor arrived to the Church with the boys and we got the pics taken. Conor’s kids had given him a lovely pocket watch for the Wedding, lucky boy!

Island Limos delivered the Bridesmaids and Bride to the Church in style! As always Damien had the cars looking fantastic!


Fr McGinn conducted the Ceremony and the new Mr & Mrs Lawless walked down the Aisle and out to greet their guests.

We then headed to Killymoon Castle for the photo-shoot. Although the girls were cold, it was a lovely day and once the photos were done we then headed off to The Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown for the reception.

Noeleen & Conor had Wooden Treats decorating both the Church and the Reception. The Table Plan was amazing and each place setting had a lovely wooden napkin holder with a little verse wrote on it! The cake was displayed on a bespoke handcrafted wooden cake stand! WOW!

Caoimhe & John

On the morning of this wedding, I packed not only all the camera equipment but all the flu tablets and Strepsils that I could find. Caoimhe & John both had awful bad colds but let me tell you, it never stopped them from enjoying their Special Day. We arrived at the Brides House and two very pretty young ladies were there to show us around, Katie-Rose & Saoirse, the Bride & Groom’s two young daughters. They were both fantastic on the day and never stopped smiling for the camera.  Caoimhe’s dress was beautiful with a gorgeous beaded band around the waist. It looked lovely hanging up but wow it was even more amazing when she got it on!  The Bridesmaids wore a very delicate baby pink chiffon dress and the two wee princesses wore pretty little dresses with   lovely matching baby pink cardigans!

Stephen Mallon decorated the church and I loved the trees at the front doors along with the lanterns!


John & the Boys arrived in good time and got the pics done and dusted before the Bridesmaids arrived.

Caoimhe arrived with her Daddy and he looked very proud walking his daughter up the steps and up the Aisle to meet her future Husband!


Fr Hughes conducted the Ceremony and Ciara Fox provided the beautiful singing. The new Mr & Mrs Gilmore soon walked the down the Aisle and out to greet their guests!

Off we headed then to Lissan House for the Photographs. John & Caoimhe were very good even when we took them out into the cold for an extra few pics together!

Mickey Mc Elhatton was at the door ready with the Champagne when we arrived to the Greenvale Hotel in Cookstown. I have to say from the Sweetie Cart to the beautifully decorated room to the Magnificent Cake everything looked the part! We had one special request from the Bride & Groom on the day and that was for photographs with their friends.   Little did we know the amount of friends these two special people had! Have a look at the pics below! LOL

Hype the Band started the dancing with Caoimhe and her new Hubbie and then later played a special song for Caoimhe and her wee Daddy. When we were leaving the Hotel, the floor was full!!


Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your very own love story!

Diane & Jonny

The Fabulous Diane & Jonny met with us on Sunday at Drum Manor Forest Park just outside Cookstown for an Engagement Shoot!  Not only did we have a lovely couple to work with, the weather was soo perfect!  Jonny was a bit weary of the camera at first, but soon came round, whereas Diane posed the very best!

We strolled around the park taking some lovely pics around the ruins and in the bushes, although that doesn’t sound too good!!  LOL

We finished off the Photoshoot and THEN Diane announced that she doesn’t really like photos of herself, Oh God Paul nearly dropped!!  So when I sent these Photos we were a bit worried but thankfully she loved them and Paul can now breathe!!

I can’t wait for their Big Day, they are a brilliant couple to work with and we got on great!

Catherine & Brian

Catherine & Brian met with us for a Pre-Wedding Shoot at our local Lake. Brian was so relaxed he was nearly horizontal and Catherine was worrying for the both of them and I couldn’t blame her as they were getting married on Friday 13th  I know this is suppose to be a unlucky day for some but I’d say Brian was the luckiest man in Ireland when Catherine walked up the Aisle!

The day came and the weather was great, we arrived at Catherine’s house only to find some works were being carried out. We then found out that Catherine & Brian had the same idea as ourselves, they were renovating and moving in at home, Catherine’s Daddy really didn’t loose a daughter but gained a son and folks honestly it was the best thing we ever done living next door to Mum & Dad! We had our own independence but with all the love & support that we needed!

Catherine’s a twin but thankfully not identical so we had no problem telling the difference between her and Alicia. These two ladies mean business and I’m telling you now, this Wedding was organized down to the finest detail! I think Alicia might have had a hand in this!  Catherine’s dress was gorgeous and her shoes were unreal, Irregular Choice, my personal favourite!

2016-06-28_0001 2016-06-28_0002 2016-06-28_0003

We got some lovely Photos around the house that morning including her Daddy having his shave for the day.  There was one very special Lady missing and that was Catherine’s Granny Donnelly!  There was a lovely Photograph of Granny when she was younger and one of her in later life and she was an extremely good looking lady!  Now I know where these girls got their good looks from!


Stephen Mallon decorated the Church in Pomeroy and it looked class! The Boys arrived a little bit later than expected in a very big yellow lorry! With the wing mirrors pulled in, the lorry just fitted through the pillars and no more! Brian had even joked with Fr Moore that maybe he could have widened the gateway but Fr Moore was having none of that LOL!

2016-06-28_0006 2016-06-28_0007

Alicia and her Mum arrived looked stunning followed shortly afterwards by the Bride & her Daddy in a convertible Beetle! Fr Moore greeted Catherine & Brian at the top of the Aisle and the Ceremony began!

We then headed to Killymoon Castle in Cookstown for the Photo-shoot and then onto the Greenvale Hotel where Mickey Mc Elhatton greeted the Couple.  The Function Room looked amazing!  Mickey’s attention to detail is second to none! After the meal the band started to set up and out came Jim Devine to entertain the guests. I can assure you when we left the floor was packed and the craic was mighty!

Best Wishes to you both for the Future and remember love is the greatest gift when given, but it is the highest honor when received!

Sharon & Brendan

I met with Sharon & her Mum about a year and half before the Big Day. I knew from our meeting that we would get on famously! Sharon’s little Sister Michaella also works in our local Hairdressers in Loughmacrory, so I have tortured Michaella manys a time for a quick wash cut & blow dry!!

On the Wedding Day we arrived at Sharon’s house and it was the usual morning scene!! Hairdressers in one room, beauticians in another, Mummy running round trying to get organized and Daddy out farming, YES, out farming, Mickey didn’t have a care in the world, he was quite happy sorting out the animals!

Zero Hair & Beauty were in charge of the hairs & make-up and when they were done Sharon and her entourage looked amazing!

Brendan & the boys who might I add, looked very smart, were delivered on time to the Church by the very reliable Glendale Limousines. There was one extra special little man that morning and that was Cahir, Sharon & Brendan’s son! Cahir was adorable and so good, he just didn’t like to smile at us (I bet Michaella bribed him…LOL).

Sharon walked up the Aisle and into Brendan’s arms and the look of Love between the two was quite obvious!

The Ceremony was soon over and the new Mr & Mrs Wilson were met at the doors of the Church with kids from the local school in which Sharon works. We left the Church and stopped at Loughmacrory Lough for a few photos before heading onto Killymoon Castle in Cookstown. Dorothy had the kettle on and the scones were going down a treat!

The Photos were taken and we headed over to the Glenavon for the Meal and entertainment. As usual James greeted the couple with a smile and a couple of glasses of their finest Champagne!   We then headed in to see the cake, made by Sharon’s Aunt Colleen, it was fantastic! Later that night the boys from Bleedin Cowboys entertained the guests!

Many congratulations to Sharon, Brendan & Cahir on their Special Day and we wish you all every happiness in your future lives together.
