I had a short drive on Saturday October 8th to Ardess Parish Church which is in the beautiful countryside between Kesh, Ederney, and Lisnarick in Co Fermanagh. The occasion was the lovely wedding of Beverley Graham and Gareth Delap.
Bride Beverley got ready at home in nearby Irvinestown and was looked after by Bridesmaids Laura Beacom and Sarah Large. Flower girls Niya Ligget and Faye Large were having great fun around the house also!
I arrived to the church with photographer Gerard McHugh and met up with the groom Gareth and Best Man Roy Beacom and Groomsman Wayne Maye. Ushers Eric Graham and Patrick Fallis welcomed the congregation to the lovely wedding ceremony conducted by Minister Canon Henry Blair.
The Bride was piped into the ceremony and the music was provided by soloists Gillian Graham and Donna Taggart. Readings were by Susan Graham and Marion Faris.
Following the ceremony we headed to Castle Archdale and were driven by Michael Gallagher of MM Wedding Cars. Also in attandance were Gareth’s pride and joy – his mini cars! His well kept models got great attention on the day and were great for the photoshoot also. More information on the minis from Sunny Bank Wedding Cars.
Arriving at the Abbey Hotel for the reception the happy couple were greeted by the team including Dorothy, Ann, John, Patricia & Danny before heading in to their pre-dinner drinks reception.
Not long after the visit of Prince Charles and Camilly this fun couple made their very own ‘Royal Visit’ entrance to the ballroom for a tasty meal.
And before the musicians ‘Smooth the band‘ from Craigavon took the stage the crowd were entertained with the Crazy Vegas Fun Casino with Shane and Garry as blackjack and roulette dealers.
Best wishes to Beverley and Gareth on a long and happy future together.
