Good morning, isn’t the weather delightful?
For some reason Tuesday is my new Monday, I’m always a day behind at the minute but please bear with me I’m working really hard on my efficiency and time keeping! Today we’re sharing the beautiful summer wedding of Clodagh and Stephen, who married last August in Dromore. Thanks to Katrina from True Romance Photography for the images.
Couple: Clodagh + Stephen McKenna
Six months after meeting in a nightclub in Omagh, Clodagh and Stephen decided to go travelling around Australia for a year, they stayed for four years and they both knew for sure they had found the perfect partner in each other!
Proposal: Stephen proposed in Sydney Airport on 26th August 2013 just before we boarded our flight back to visit family!
Wedding date: Saturday 27th August 2016
Ceremony: St Davogs, Dromore
Reception: Mill Park Hotel, Donegal
Our Planning & Wedding Style: Once we had booked the venue and mass everything came together pretty quickly! We chose to focus our budget on hiring a fantastic photographer and on my dream wedding dress. I had three bridesmaids who wore soft pink multiway dresses which worked perfectly with the elegant theme of the day and the small rustic touches we added.
Our Style: I got my dress in Mc Elhinney’s Bridal Rooms in Ballybofey. It was from the 2016 Ronald Joyce preview collection. I chose five dresses to try on and left my favourite to the last. I just knew it was my dress even before I had in over my waist! My maids dresses were from Debenhams and the flower girls dresses were picked up from Monsoon.
Our Highlights & Advice: The day went perfectly. The music was my highlight, we were piped into the reception which was very exciting! I’d advise brides to give themselves plenty of time to plan and to keep records of all payments and dates.
