Escorted down the aisle by her father John, the bride looked stunningly beautiful in a pleated diamond white, silk satin dress with diamante beaded shoulder & laced back, highlighted by a full length ruffled train.
Equally beautiful were her four accompanying bridesmaids, who wore full-length strapless Old Gold Chiffon dresses with Vintage Brocade, & pinned off centre with Pearl Leaf Brooches.
The groom Shane, and his four groomsmen, looked dashing in black evening suits, elegantly highlighted by white wing collared shirts, white silk cravats & silver waist coats.
The couple proclaimed their love for each other in front of a large gathering of family and close friends, with a video recording of the day’s events undertaken by top videographer Mr Pat Corbett.
