Good evening brides-to-be! We hope at this stage you have your Christmas shopping finished and are starting to relax and get into the spirit of all things cheerful!

This evenings wedding is the last of 2014, with the office closing for the holidays on Friday, we are on wind-down mode! But January will bring more stunning real life couples every Tuesday and we will be finalising the next issue, Spring Summer 2015, which is shaping up to be fabulous!

It’s not everyday the groom and his grooms party arrive by motorbike, but that’s exactly how Mark arrived! What an entrance.

Mark and his beautiful bride, Lauren were married this past April in Derryloran Church, Cookstown. With 130 guests attending Laura surprised her groom with a vintage motorbike, dressed in flowers and waiting at the ceremony. Their elegant vintage wedding continued at the Tulllyglass House Hotel in Ballymena where the biking theme was again present in the specially commissioned wedding cake by Jills Cakes, Moneymore.

To keep the celebrations going, Mark and Laura travelled to Australia on a honeymoon of a lifetime. After visiting Perth and Adelaide the couple visited some of Laura’s family before heading home.
