This is a special blog that I’m writing today! This is dedicated to one very special man who is no longer with us and that’s Claire’s Granda Frank. I know I have said it before and I’ll say it again but Grandparents are so important and to have that special photo taken with them on your Wedding Day is priceless!! Granda Frank passed away when Claire was on Honeymoon so the newly weds returned early to attend Frank’s Funeral! I’m so glad we called out to see Frank that day, he was in such good form and enjoying the craic and was so proud of his lovely Granddaughter!
Claire’s Big Day started off with make-up & hair being done in the house that morning! It was a busy house to say the least! The Champagne was being opened by none other than the Mother of the Bride and I have to say she was a dab hand at that! Claire looked beautiful and her dress was so simple and elegant! Colm even remembered to purchase a gorgeous gift for his Bride, a beautiful Michael Kors watch! One day at a Wedding I said to Paul “I never got a gift from you on our Wedding Day” and his reply was “Sure you got me, what else did you need” LOL…..Oh let me think!!
The Boys arrived to the Church on time and looking very handsome! Colm was pretty relaxed, no nerves at all in fact! The Church looked lovely, decorated by Ann Mc Kenna from Kildress!
Soon after the Hummer arrived with the Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride who were all looking lovely! Claire’s proud Daddy walked her up the Aisle and into Colm’s Arms! It really is one of my most favourite times at a Wedding, when a Groom sees his wife to be for the first time!
There was a Guard of Honour for Claire & Colm on leaving the Church and we then headed to visit the Grandparents who couldn’t make it to the Church! We even took some of the photos at Claire’s Grandparents house in Kildress!
After all the snaps were taken we headed to the Slieve Russell in Cavan for the Reception. The Evening was packed full of great food, company & entertainment!
Love is just a word until someone comes along and gives it a meaning.
