Beverley and Ian’s spring wedding was teaming with elegant rustic charm, seasonal florals and fabulous bridal fashion .
Deputy store manager Beverley Crawford first met engineer Ian Good during a night out in Omagh, and a few weeks later they had their first date. In February 2015 Ian used his powers of persuasion to get Beverley to join him on a walk in her favourite place, Knockmany Forest, instead of heading shopping for the day. “Ian persuaded me to leave the shopping until the following day and got down on one knee at the top of Knockmany. I was extremely shocked as I had absolutely no idea so it took me a while to get the words out to accept! It was special to me that he proposed somewhere which meant a lot to me,” explained Beverley. The couple headed to D&K The Jewellers, Cookstown, where they chose a princess cut diamond ring in a rose gold setting.
With a love of copper, slate and wood, Beverley was keen to incorporate these natural textures into her spring wedding, and together with the help of Bumble Bee Garden Florists her vision of an elegant wedding day with rustic touches was brought to life. Florals on the day included thistle, daisies, peonies and cherry blossom which perfectly coordinated with her maids sage-grey dresses from Serendipity Bridal Boutique. After much searching, Beverley chose a fashion-forward lace-edged two piece from The White Gallery. “Once I tried on the dress I chose I just knew it felt right! Rachel, the owner was truly amazing and she knew what I was looking for, she really understood what I wanted and my style. I honestly had the best experience in her boutique,” added Beverley.
With 160 guests gathered in her local church, St Marks Parish Church of Ireland, Newtownsaville, Beverley walked up the aisle alongside her dad, three bridesmaids and her cute little flower girl and page boy. The church had been decorated in keeping with the overall wedding style, using copper baskets and vases to display the flowers, and a beautiful hand-painted sign from Signs By Rachel. Following the ceremony, Beverley and Ian together with their guests travelled the short distance to Corick Country House Hotel for the wedding reception where they were greeted by Trad band, Solás. “Our wedding day went really well from start to finish with everything coming together and going to plan! The hotel staff were very helpful and organised which made us enjoy the day more and relax. I really was very lucky that every supplier I used understood the style I wanted and got it so right! On the way to the reception we stopped off at Knockmany Forest for photos in the bluebells. Erica our photographer was amazing and got some fab shots with the
bluebells which was so special to us!” said Beverley. Following their special day, Beverley and Ian travelled to Koh Samui, Thailand and Singapore for their honeymoon before returning to settle into married life. Looking back on their day Beverley wouldn’t change a thing and would urge all wedding planning couples to be organised and do a few tasks each month to make the process more manageable.
