What a day, that’s all I can say! Between the Weather and John having us in stitches of laughter, it was brilliant! The Bridal Preps were very organized, Mum sitting getting her make-up done in the Sun Room and The Bride in a bedroom down the hall getting her hair finished off by Priscilla from Priscilla’s Hair in Omagh. The Bridesmaids were very quiet, I’m not too sure if there were one or two with a slight hangover but who knows..LOL. Sleeeping in his little cot was Nathan, the bride & groom’s son. Natasha’s dress was gorgeous, the lace detail was just fab and of course she was going to be wearing my favourite pair of shoes, Irregular Choice! I’m, not sure if many of you know but I had to get Paul to move some of his clothes out of his side of the wardrobe so I could fit my shoes in, so a slight obsession, well umm yes maybe!! LOL
We arrived to the Church to find Ciara Mc Kernan from Creggan decorating the Altar with her new hire accessories! Clare O’Brien from Draperstown provided the flowers and everything was perfect! We were standing outside waiting on the boys to arrive and far off in the distance all we could hear was or rather what sounded like a cross between a shotgun and a plane, but NO it was John and the boys arriving in their cars! The most handsome boy at the wedding was little Shea, the Bride & Groom’s other wee son! He smiled for the pics even when it was starting to spit with rain! Eventually the rain started, but nothing could have dampened the spirits of that bridal party, even Natasha wasn’t going to wait for an umbrella to get her up the steps to the Church!
Fr Forbes conducted the Ceremony and I have to say little Nathan gave him a run for his money, I think he was looking more attention than Fr Forbes! The singing and music provided by Donna Taggart and Rory Madden was just beautiful. Before leaving the Church we took a group photo of everyone at the Wedding. These are lovely to look back on in years to come!
Over the years we have had many requests en-route to the photo-shoot location e.g.: Can we stop at a Grandparents house, can we stop at the local Pub, can we stop at the shop, can we stop at a Toilet but never have we stopped to get a Hot-Dog and Chip for the Groom & Bestman! The Photos were taken and the happy Couple were delivered to the Silver Tassie Hotel by Exotic Limos. Aidan has a lovely new White Limo and it is just class!
After a fantastic 4 course meal the dancing started and when we were getting finished off, I had to run with the camera to get one last pic and that was Natasha with her two special boys! Thanks so much for having us at your Special Day. We wish you both & those two fantastic boys every happiness in your future lives together!
And remember keep the fire lit in your marriage and your life will be filled with warmth!
