Yvonne & Chris finally got to have their Silver Tassie Hotel wedding and it was definitely worth waiting for.
I met up with Yvonne and the girls at Yvonne's parents house at Ballyare only a short drive from the Tassie as they were getting the finishing touches down on their make-up by Kerrie James Make-Up.
Once finished we headed out to Yvonne's parent's absolutely stunning gardens for a few pics as the girls and mum Mary chilled out with a glass of bubbly poured by proud dad John.
Once the girls headed upstairs to get ready John and myself had a good look around the site and I gave him a bird's-eye tour of his home with the drone which was pretty cool.
It wasn't long before I was called upstairs as Yvonne was now ready in her stunning dress from Pippa Bridal Studios Coleraine. This is the part of the morning prep I love seeing everyone's reactions to how amazing she looked.
After a few family pics I left the girls to head for the hotel where Chris and the guests were waiting for the bridal party to arrive and it didn't take long for the men from Mercedes wedding car hire to transport them to the venue.
This was a beautiful and sometimes emotional ceremony celebrated by Marie Greene with music by the amazing Zara Montgomery. There was candles lit to remember relations no longer with us, a hand typing ceremony and after the exchange of rings Yvonne & Chris shared their first kiss as a married couple to the delight of everyone there.
After a few handshakes and hugs from the guests the couple were treated to surprise ice-cream outside as the girls had secretly hired an ice cream van for them.
Once the formal family pics were taken at the hotel's garden myself and the wedding party headed for the beautiful waterfall outside Ramelton were we chose as the location for the portrait shoot.
With the pictures finished we returned to the hotel to mingle with the guests and it wasn't long before Georgina called everyone to be seated for dinner. The couple chose to do the speeches before dinner and they were short and sweet and everyone was soon dining to the best of food that the Tassie always produces.
The Humble Earthworms was the band that the couple had their hearts set on to play at their wedding and I can understand why as from the minute they played the first dance song they belted out absolute classics which had the dance floor hopping. For anyone interested I have a short video of them on my Instagram reels.
