Evening brides-to-be! Our fun-loving couple today, Deborah and Omar didn’t meet in the most romantic of place, in fact they met for the first time at a wake. As Deborah said, “this was the perfect time to fall in love!” We’ll be sharing their whole wedding planning story in the Autumn Winter issue, which will be zooming its way to a newsagent near you very soon, but tonight we thought a little teaser of photographs from Ciaran O’Neill Photography in Lurgan would only be fair!
With their ceremony being held in St. Patricks Cathedral, Armagh Deborah realised an Irish theme was emerging. The couple visited Corick Country House Hotel and fell in love with its perfect setting, gardens and reception suite, and their day was confirmed for June, 20th 2015.
Adding Irish charm to the day, Celtic Breeze performed traditional Irish music during the ceremony, performers playing harps Deborah’s father had made also added to the atmosphere and Celtic Rhythm, Irish dancers from Dublin performed at the reception. The Claddagh symbol was used throughout the day on the mass booklets, Mr & Mrs signs, on the wedding cake and the tissue envelopes.
“Our day was nothing short of amazing. From ceremony through to the reception and the joy and interest strewn among all of our guests, all swathed in a bath of glorious sunshine all day… we cannot possibly convey just how special it was. As spectacular and grand as it all was, we were humbled by the amount of love and genuine attention our friends and family devoted to us and for that we will always be grateful. Everyone helped make our day as wonderful as it was,” said Deborah.
