Good evening lovely brides to be! We’re feeling a little upset with weather at the minute, and we’re guessing you are too so we thought it only right to give you a treat! Today we’re sharing a preview of one of our glorious weddings that will feature in the Autumn Winter issue, out next month! How about that for a treat?! Maurade and Peter’s early summer wedding was a classic and elegant day at the Killyhevlin Hotel in Enniskillen. Thanks to Terry Gervin Photography in Dungannon for sharing this beautiful day with us.
Maurade and Peter originally met in their local town, Coalisland when they would spin around with their friends. One evening Peter asked for Maurade’s number and the rest is history! Peter chose the stunning setting of Lough Eske Hotel to pop the question during a weekend break whilst they were celebrating their fourth anniversary together. Peter had chosen a beautiful emerald green stone surrounded with diamonds for Maurade as green is her favourite colour.
Both Peter and Maurade wanted to hold their reception at the Killyhevlin Hotel and Spa in Enniskillen as they love the hotel’s reception suite and of course, the breathtaking grounds and views of Lough Erne. “I had written a checklist, and we knew who we wanted to book for everything so it was just a case of hoping everyone was free for our date,” explained Maurade.
“From start to finish the day was magical, everything went so well. The only thing that went wrong was that my Daddy is in a wheelchair and we had charged his mobile scooter but once we got to the chapel the battery was gone in it! It didn’t matter to me though as my Daddy still got up the aisle with my brother pushing him and me walking behind them, I wouldn’t of had it any other way,” said Maurade.
Both Maurade and Peter agree that seeing each other at the top of the aisle and marrying their best friend was the highlight of the day! Following their wedding day, Maurade and Peter travelled to the Moon Palace Resort, Mexico for their relaxing honeymoon.
