Good afternoon! It’s a little crazy this week in GMINI HQ as we’re on the final countdown to our annual Reader Awards ceremony on Saturday night! If you voted and you’d like to know who is crowned the best in Northern Ireland, stay tuned to our Twitter on Saturday night for winners updates – we might even share some glitzy photos! This year we’re celebrating our 10th Anniversary with a huge event, which is sponsored by Bellamianta, the local luxury tanning brand, created right here in Northern Ireland. It’s going to be one heck of a golden night so do join in the Twitter fun.
Today we’re sharing the sweet vintage wedding of local couple Melissa and Mark. Their wedding was held on Friday 19th June, in Melissa’s local parish, St Malachy’s, Ballymacilroy. Thanks to Ken Doyle Photography from Monaghan for sharing their special day with us.
With a keen eye for fashion, Melissa was excited to create her bespoke bridesmaids dresses with the help from No 44 Bridal Designs in Dungannon. The one-off two piece outfits featured a lace bateau neckline top and straight ankle grazing skirt in a pretty violet shade, which worked beautifully with her elegant, vintage theme.
Of course, Mark and his groomsmen were dressed impeccably from Tux & Tails in Dungannon in their three piece navy suits. Mark wore a hi-sheen blue suit with tweed waistcoat to co-ordinate with the overall style.
