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!

Stacey & Conor Bayne

We arrived in Cookstown at Stacey’s House and were met by her Mum Ann, we have known Ann over the years as she works in the Glenavon House Hotel and we knew we were in for a day full of fun!!  Stacey’s dress was beautiful; the lace detail was simply gorgeous!  Her Bridesmaids wore a lovely green colour whilst the flower girl stole the show with her wee dress!!  I really liked our morning at Stacey’s House, Conor’s wee Sister was there as she was a Junior Bridesmaid and his Mummy was there too so we got a few snaps of them both!


Downstairs all the make-up and hairs were being done with plenty of Moet being passed around!  There was the cutest little poser there who sat up and got its photograph taken no problem at all, their wee dog Bella!  I think she actually knew every word Ann said to her!


The boys arrived at the Church looking very smart and Conor had no nerves at all!  Again Mr Mallon supplied the flowers and Cookstown Church was looking lovely!  After the couple said their “I dos” we went to Lissan House for the Photographs.   We then headed over to Dungannon to see Conor’s Granny!  We took some lovely Photographs of his Granny & Granda and then with the family too.  As I keep saying to our Couples these photos are precious!


The Reception was in the Glenavon House Hotel in Cookstown with the couple being looked after by James Wylie, nothing is ever an issue for James, he is so helpful, you couldn’t ask for better!  After a 4 course meal, Bitz n Pieces set up and the dancing started and when we left the floor was hoping!


Congratulations to you both on your Big Day and Best Wishes for the Future!
