Fidelma and Tim’s wedding day had a real jovial feel to it, helped with their choice of decor, from the blue Sashes on the chairs, the Union Jack flags down to Fidelma fabulous “blue” shoes, it all came together to create a great real festival atmosphere.

Fidelma looked stunning in her white elegant bridal gown as she walked down the aisle in our banqueting hall; you could see Tim’s smile grow as she drew closer to him, it really was a very touching moment as they joined hands for the first time that day. The ceremony finished to the rapturous applause from their family and friends upon the first kiss.

Drinks were now being served so everyone could relax and congratulate the newly weds, before they were taken away for some beautiful intimate photos together in and around the main house and gardens, and they then invited their friends and family to join them for some group shots.

The banqueting hall was now been set up ready for the wedding breakfast, everyone made their way into the hall, and found their seats. The volume soon rose as the food and wine was served; the meal was lots of fun with little interludes of bubbles from some of the younger (and older) members of the party.

Once the speeches had taken place, and the cake had been cut everyone then celebrated long into the night with dancing and lots of joyous laughter.
