Good evening and welcome to March! How is this year zipping by so quickly already?
Tonight we have a lovely wedding story from rural Tyrone, did the tractor give it away?! Thanks to Ronan Mc Grade Photography in Enniskillen for sharing the beautiful images.
Couple: Orla + Gary Warrington
Orla and Gary both grew up in Fivemiletown so always knew of each other but during a night out in Omagh in 2009 they sparked up conversation and romance soon blossomed.
Proposal: We went to Greece in September 2014 on holidays and had discussed getting engaged so a few months later in December that year we headed off to Belfast together to buy the ring!
Wedding date: Saturday 24th September 2016
Ceremony: St Johns Church, Fivemiletown
Reception: The Valley Hotel, Fivemiletown
Our Planning & Wedding Style: I did all the planning with some input from Gary, but we automatically knew we wanted to keep the wedding local and close to home. We didn't set a budget but we knew we wanted to spend the most money on our reception, drinks reception entertainment and bridal wear. We saved money by not having a wedding film, table favours and only using one wedding car. I was keen to move away from the popular vintage theme so we went with simple and elegant details and a little touch of ‘Agri Spec’ thrown in for Gary who is a farmer as well as an electrician!
Our Style: I had no idea what kind of wedding dress I wanted so really trusted Linda at Serendipity Bridal Boutique. It was the first place I visited and I found the perfect dress for me. I chose navy dresses for my maids to keep with the elegant look.
Our Highlights: Our day was everything we expected it to be and more, and would do it all over again. One huge highlight of the day was arriving outside the hotel on the tractor with all our family and friends standing outside waiting to see us. The whole traffic came to a standstill whilst we got photos!
