WHERE WAS IT & WHY ? : Knockderry Country House Hotel
After 10 years together, we decided that we would finally ‘tie the knot’. As soon as we visited Knockderry on a blistering hot April day, we fell in love with it. Sitting on the banks of Loch Long with beautiful views, the hotel absolutely oozes character. We knew whatever the weather we would have a perfect day.
THEME OR STYLE: It had to be purple! We really wanted a relaxed day where everyone enjoyed themselves.
BRIDE’S DRESS : Athena by Sophia Tolli. A simple Grecian inspired dress with a little bit of sparkle- perfect!!
JEWELLERY/ACCESSORIES: A Monet diamanté bracelet and a diamanté hair comb.
HAIR & MAKEUP: Hair was a difficult decision for me as we don’t live in the area. I was really pleased with my choice. My bridesmaid and I, as well as four other close family members all had our hair done at the same time. The staff in the salon were so friendly and professional. They listened carefully to our requests and made it a relaxing, calming experience. My driving on the way to and from the salon, however, was not!!
THE FLOWERS: Beautiful Hand tied bouquet consisting of Supernova Thistles, Purple Agapanthus, Purple Lysyanthius, Erigium Thistles and Greenery.The table flowers were fish bowls with hand tied arrangements in the bridal theme coming out of the bowl with submersible lights.
THE CAKE: Cup cakes with a top tier of cake. I chose cream coloured frosting topped with 3 shades of purple frangipani flowers and edible glitter. The top tier had flowers cascading down onto the tier below.
The children had their own cup cakes. The boys had bright blue cookie monster cupcakes and the girls, pink sparkly butterfly cakes.
A MEMORABLE MOMENT: It is difficult to pin point one moment. We had such a happy, celebratory day. We were so happy as were all our guests. It was a day full of smiles and laughter.
FAVOURITE PICTURE?: Now that is a question! We love so many of them!! They really did capture the day, the scenery and the characters! We love the photos that tell the story of the ceremony, of us down on the beach, at the entrance of the hotel, the family photos where we were laughing hysterically and of course the sequence of shots that catch our son’s cheeky character. We were so happy with all the photos!
We are delighted to hear that Kirsty a beautiful blustery day on the banks of Loch Long with a lovely family. Thank you.
