Clare and Thomas are both very crafty DIY people and they used their skills to the full in their Homedmade Rosspark Hotel Wedding as you will see with all the finishing Touches that Thomas created and Clare’s love of making cakes she made her own wedding cake.
We started the day with Clare in her room at the hotel with her bridesmaids and got some great shots of her and the ladies getting ready and of all the details Clare’s Dress which came from Cathedral Gowns in Downpatrick and of her shoes and jewellery.
We headed on down to the ceremony room and got some shots of the set up and of the flowers which had been put together by the bridal party and Clare and Thomas’s friends.
We met up with Thomas and the lads and took them out to the garden area and then on around the back of the hotel to a a beaten up shipping container, you all know by now how my we love that broken down look.
Clare’s Brother and his partner played the ceremony music and we managed to get some great shots of them while they were tuning up before everything started.
Soon Enough it was time for the ceremony to begin, the ceremony was performed by Ballymena council Registrar in the Hotels function room.
Following the ceremony we headed out to the grounds of the hotel to get some shots of the couple we started at the swing and pagoda.
before heading on around the rest of the grounds and back to the shipping container.
We headed back in to the function room to get all the little details once the room had been turned around for dinner including some great shots of Clare’s cake. if you would like to see more cakes Clare has made then check out her blog a wee bit of cake!
It was soon time for dinner and everyone headed back into the function room, the speeches started off the proceedings before dinner was served.
Following dinner there was time to head back out rear garden of the hotel to get a few extra shots 🙂
It was soon time for the first dance which was followed by a surprise performance by a local Irish Dancing troop which had been arranged by Clare’s mum.
